SCREAMING AT MEETING THE KING OF Bs!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Recoverin’ from Halloween hangover, we’ve been takin’ it fairly easy after wrappin’ up such a huge season last week. But if concludin’ an epic crossover with Full Moon wasn’t enough for celebratin’ the greatest holiday, we tried to make this year even more memorable when we heard the King of Bs himself, Bruce Campbell, was blowin’ through our town.

In case you haven’t heard, Bruce recently wrote his newest auto-biography Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor and has been pushin’ it on loyal fans with a cross country book tour. To make his book signin’s more fun than standin’ forever in lines for an autograph, Bruce entertains folks as a host of an all inclusive pre-show called Last Fan Standing, a trivia gameshow for geeks who know their pop-culture. We didn’t need a lot of convincin’ to know Bruce Campbell + Halloween = a one of a kind experience we’d kick our own asses for missin’, so we hurried to buy tickets for what we hoped would be an unforgettable Hallow’s Eve. Well, it was unforgettable alright.

The first thing we regret are the tickets. At the ticket site we were directed to, there were three options. General Admission buys you a signed copy of Bruce’s new book and admission to the gameshow everyone can play. Plus-One tickets are cheap deals for those supportive spouses or indifferent family members taggin’ along who don’t want a book but can still play the game. VIP tickets offer the more exclusive experience, of course, givin’ you an assumed autographed book (see that missin’ detail below), entry to the gameshow, and a meet and greet with Bruce himself. Investin’ too much into the “limited number of VIP tickets” available, we snagged those babies up in a hurry, thinkin’ we were some lucky few who would get the chance to mingle with Bruce in some backroom with a handful of others like a backstage pass at some hot shot concert. More on that later.

The first bit of confusion came with the time the event started which was posted as 6:30 PM. Is this when the doors open or when the game starts? More importantly, was this exclusive VIP meet and greet happenin’ before or after the event? After some callin’ around, we got our answers and showed up in time to file in the buildin’ with other eager fans a few minutes before 6:30 PM. Once inside, we’re given these multiple choice clickers for the game along with our pre-signed copies of Hail to the Chin. We find us some seats near the stage after grabbin’ drinks to help ease our fandom nerves and gaze at the gameshow set consistin’ of five podiums and a projection screen. It was about this time we started seein’ other horror fans in the crowd we knew, everyone exchangin’ the same glance of disbelief with each other that said, “You knew the King was here and didn’t bother tellin’ me?!” It was apparent everyone in town wanted Bruce all to themselves, present company included.

A little after 7 PM, nearly everyone found a place to plant their butts and the shin dig was underway. We had seen Bruce once before in passin’ on a convention floor, and that was our first and only experience with bein’ starstruck. This imaginary guy we spent so many years watchin’ on TV and collectin’ in comic books was real and within arms reach. This time ’round, his presence didn’t carry quite the same impact. When Bruce bounced on stage, we thought he resembled Bob Saget from Full House more than the knucklehead hero we watched in Ash vs Evil Dead. We think his glasses are to blame for that.

Anyway, Bruce cracks a few jokes, mingles with audience members dressed for Halloween, and introduces us to somethin’ called Bruce Bucks. In addition to the game, Bruce said folks in the crowd could earn this fake currency for doin’ or sayin’ random things he finds humorous, but we’ll be damned if he ever said where to turn it in or what it got anyone. Good thing he gave out so little of it. It’s not long before Bruce breaks away from gettin’ personal with the crowd and jumps into the first round of questions. Now, we thought this was a new show bein’ tapped on the road for future broadcasts on some unknown channel, but turns out this was just a fun little roadshow performance without a single camera in sight. Basin’ the winners on how quickly they answered questions correctly, Bruce asked a handful of trivia rangin’ from comics to horror flicks. We would say these questions weren’t anythin’ too advance for a modest fan, most of it focusin’ on Marvel comics and popular horror movies. The toughest questions were details from The Last Starfighter, Game of Thrones, or Labyrinth. Intimidated by the quick draw part of the game, we sadly missed several things we actually knew and didn’t get to advance to the stage as one of the final four.

Bruce personally greets each of the final four and starts the next round which is pure comedy thanks to a knowledgeable she-geek from out of town. The final four flank the sides of the projection screen that displays the questions as Bruce asks them. She-Geek is buzzin’ in with the answers as soon as Bruce opens his mouth, ’cause she’s readin’ it on the screen quicker than he’s readin’ it out loud.  Stagehands realize this and chastised her for not listenin’ to Bruce instead. With this bein’ their umpteenth rodeo, you’d think these knuckleheads would have figured out they either need to get the contestants behind the screen or tell them to not read it beforehand.

Luckily, She-Geek pressed on and dominated the next two rounds, ’cause the questions were provin’ so relatively easy to answer, she’d just buzz in before even thinkin’. And why not? No one was penalized for givin’ the wrong answer. When all was said and done, she was the last fan standin’. Everyone was eager to see what her grand prize was, most believin’ it would be some valuable piece of merch or prop from one of Bruce’s movies. Before we get to that, however, game reps first told us what the other four finalists got which raised all kinds of confusion. We conferred with other folks in the crowd, and most agreed it sounded like the reps of the event said third and fourth place won gift cards to our local comic shop along with weekend passes to our area’s upcomin’ comicon. What? Nothin’ for second place? And after that bafflin’ announcement, we witness the winner gettin’ her grand prize, a signed certificate from Bruce that said she was a nerd. That’s it?!! Afterward, we had to follow up with the comic shop that served as the event’s sponsor, and they helped clarify things. The winner actually got the weekend passes for comicon with a hefty gift card to their store. Second through fourth place won similar gift cards to the comic shop of lesser varyin’ amounts. These winners had to be hunted down by the comic shop reps to be awarded their prizes thanks to slack gamin’ officials. A little disappointed we couldn’t whiz kid our way on stage with Bruce to win another John Hancock (the signed book is enough for us), we became anxious to begin the meet and greet phase of our Halloween night with the King of Bs. This is when trouble started.

While we were ignorantly prepared for an some personal meet and greet with Bruce in a private VIP backroom with an exclusive group of fans for a few minutes, Bruce’s bad cop counterpart takes the stage and starts givin’ everyone explicit directions for what was happenin’ next. After readin’ Hail to the Chin, I found out this guy’s name is Mike, and he’s Bruce’s point man at appearances, ensurin’ everythin’ goes Bruce’s way or no way at all. He was the one to break the news that the only perk us VIP ticket holders got was to line up in an orderly fashion at the front where Bruce would be sittin’ at a table and take turns shakin’ his hand while he added our name above his signature already found in our books. Another lame perk  to this VIP experience not mentioned on the ticket site is the opportunity to have Bruce sign a second item in addition to his new book, as long as it was a body part or relevant to his career. At first, the crowd was mighty upset, because everyone was understandin’ Mike was sayin’ both VIP and regular ticket holders could get in line to meet Bruce which undermined the reason people like us ponied up the extra dough for VIP tickets. This took forever to clear up, and folks finally calmed down when it started bein’ announced only VIP could stand in line for Bruce. We later found out that for such a limited amount of VIP tickets, 60-80% of the crowd that night were VIPs waitin’ in line, and that just made the experience feel a lot less special.

Upset at findin’ out we paid extra for a common celebrity encounter most people experience at conventions, it only got worse when we were told we couldn’t have pictures with him, ’cause no one was allowed behind his table. We were allowed to take pictures or video of him signin’ our stuff, however, so long as we stayed on our side of the table. Bruce must have as many do’s and don’ts as the president when it comes to meetin’ the public.

Not wantin’ to feel like we wasted money, we waited in the long twistin’ line and waited patiently, while we passed the time sharin’ our Bruce Campbell videos with others in line and spreadin’ the word about our show. When we finally got to the front of the line and approached our cinematic hero of the last 20 years, it was pretty uneventful. We knew it was a long shot, but we asked if he had seen our ultimate tribute video he retweeted. He said he didn’t know and whisked us on our way. With the next fan runnin’ up on us, we wanted some form of satisfaction, so we urgently asked if he receives any royalty from any of the comics that feature his most popular characters.

“Why do you care?” He passively said.

“Just curious.”

“Don’t buy Dynamite. They steal images.”

With that, we walked off and our highly anticipated night with Bruce Campbell was over. I asked some knowledgeable folks about the Dynamite Comics comment later, and seems that publisher’s taken some heat for usin’ a lot of actor’s images in their licensed comics associated with movies and TV shows. For instance, they bought the rights to publish Army of Darkness comics regardin’ its story and characters, but not necessarily the rights to use Bruce’s likeness for Ash. It’s legal details like this that’s why the Real Ghostbusters cartoon characters don’t look anythin’ like Bill Murray or Dan Akroyd.

So, the event was okay at best. There was a lot of miscommunication Bruce’s people were at fault for, and some unfortunate disappointments were partly due to us expectin’ more from the experience than we probably should have. As described, we did get a book, we did participate in a private gameshow, and we did get to meet Bruce even if it was for less than a minute with a bare bones exchange of words. While we don’t feel the VIP ticket prices were worth what we got in return, the regular tickets were definitely worth the price of a book and hour spent playin’ a game with Bruce. In hindsight, however, we should have just bought the regular tickets with the plus one deals and gone for the gameshow and a copy of Hail to the Chin. If we still wanted a VIP ticket knowin’ what we know now, we would have just bought one and had Bruce sign our copy of the Moontrap comic, his first appearance in a comic book which would have surely gotten a chuckle. But it is what it is, so live and learn.

Oh, and before we forget, how ’bout our thoughts on Hail to the Chin? What we love about Bruce’s first auto-biography If Chins Could Kill is how it chronicles his energetic whirlwind of underdog struggles as an ambitious young man travelin’ the world in search of his dream through sincere trial and error. In this next act of his life, things are a little more settled with him speakin’ as a weathered adult sharin’ details about buyin’ a house in Oregon, how his actin’ career affects his second marriage, the perks and downsides to findin’ steady work on Burn Notice, and his contemplations on losin’ loved ones. The most surprisin’ chapter is his candid admittance to bein’ charged with a DUI back in the day in a chain of car wreck stories. There are some fun stories behind the scenes of My Name is Bruce and Man With the Screaming Brain, but this book kind of lacks that daredevil spirit now that Bruce has been established in the movie business. I also wish there were a lot more personal photos used instead of these Photoshop gag images that seem to dominate the book. Worth a read by any fan.

SCREAMING AT THE TOXIC AVENGER 1-4!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks, and Happy Halloween!!! The best day of the year has arrived, and we worked our tailbones off to give you the greatest treat before the witchin’ hour strikes. You read right. Below is the long awaited finale to our most ambitious season yet, the epic conclusion to this year’s infamous underground B-movie brawl, T**** vs Full Moon!!!!

Bein’ our 40th episode, we went all out on this one. Lots of fightin’, returnin’ characters, surprises, emotional ups and downs, and one last marathon of reviews takin’ a humorous look at the Toxic Avenger series. If you’ve never seen one of these manic mutant movies, you’re in for a treat, partner, ’cause these flicks are about as crazy as they get. Unlike their kid friendly counterpart, the Toxic Crusaders cartoon series, these indie superhero monster flicks are gory, perverse, vulgar, politically incorrect . . . just how we like it!

Really wish we could be celebratin’ this landmark in our series with both Full Moon and Troma, but sadly nothin’s changed with Troma since we premiered this season last January. Lloyd Kaufman wanted to be part of all this harmless non-profit fun, but his partners at Troma weren’t as enthusiastic and is the reason all this had to be censored and keep y’all from fully enjoyin’ somethin’ so fun and different. But we worked through all that drama to keep givin’ you Scream Freaks a fantasy fight we thought you’d get a kick out of, and still feel a rush of achievement for completin’ this season that’s three years in the makin’!

That said, we cannot thank Charles Band and Full Moon enough for bein’ such great supporters for our show this past year. Full Moon is ran by a cool gang of filmmakers we’re happy to call our friends, and Charlie has just been amazin’ to work with given his busy schedule. He was onboard with this crossover idea from the get go, and is one of the most chilled dudes you’ll ever meet. While the crossover is endin’, we look forward to continuin’ our relationship with Full Moon and hope to collaborate again in the future.

Hell, maybe one day Troma will recognize these episodes for all the free publicity they offer and will contact us in the future to release the uncensored versions for fans to binge.

For now, enjoy this explosive endin’, have some candy for us, and be on the look out for more vids headin’ your way with reviews of Toxie’s stint in cartoons and comics. As for us, we just heard Bruce Campbell is blowin’ through our town on his gameshow/book tour, and we’ve got VIP tickets to shake the hand of the legend that helped mold our sense of scary heroics the way we know them today. Halloween night with the King of the Bs . . . Yeehaw!! Think he’s heard of our Bruce Campbell Takes It In The Face vids?

Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the Dollman so you can win this month’s random Full Moon DVD with a piece of original Screaming Soup! artwork. For those who don’t know how the game works,  look below for the rules and join the revered ranks of past winners who were first to tell us they spotted Full Moon’s 13″ cop with an attitude! Click HERE to see what past winners have received. This month’s winner is Buddy Smith from Arlington Heights, IL.

SCREAMING AT LINNEA QUIGLEY!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Hope your Halloween season’s off to a great start, and we can’t wait for you to join us for our epic Halloween finale next week, 10/20/16! Fun reviews, favorite characters return, and we reveal our plans for next season’s storyline that’s sure to get a lot of you falling out of your seat with excitement!

But focusing on the now, it’s time for another Tribute video and given we did a big one on Bruce “King of the B” Campbell last Halloween, we thought we’d turn to our favorite Queen of Scream this time, Linnea Quigley! Apocalyptic soldier, cemetery dancing punk, fitness instructor, nerd turned succubus, demonic cutie, chainsaw prancing hero, she’s played it all and continues to entertain us today with an ever growing list of credits. While most will always remember her for her iconic role as a naked zombie in Return of the Living Dead, our favorite Linnea role is still Spider from Sorority Babes at the Slime Bowl-O-Rama. She didn’t show any skin in that flick, but we always felt that was her coolest character who was tough, fun, and endearing. Anyway, check the video we put together below and bask in her talents!

Other than that, be sure to catch up on Screaming Soup! Seasons 1-2 after watching the latest Season 3 episodes, check out this week’s Howl’n Hottie, read recent reviews for the newer horror films we’re watching in our R-Rated Reviews blog, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!

SCREAMING AT WEREWOLVES AND CAMEOS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Woo-doggy, have you got it made this week with a double scoop of goodies! Not only are we premiering another tribute video for your horrific pleasure, but you also get some more animated mayhem as we make a guest appearance on Grim Reaper’s “Your Final Answer!”

Tackling the first tribute video to follow the Bruce Campbell shout-out we put together last Halloween, we realized these vids didn’t have to be spotlighting horror celebrities every time and could be about anything we think deserved attention. Jump scares, screams, rubber bats, whatever! With that said, we skipped purchasing someone’s entire film career for creating the coolest montage of their life in movies, and decided to celebrate werewolf transformations instead. Yessir, we went through our whole collection of monster movies and pieced together every super morphing,  hair sprouting, gore-tastic scene of man becoming beats we could find and pieced it all together in one Ramones jamming vid. You can check it out below and if you want to know where the clips came from, you can check out the movies on the vid’s page HERE.

In other news, Grim Reaper asked us to stop by and make another legendary appearance on his show “Your Final Answer,” and we hopefully don’t disappoint. That guest spot can also be seen below, and be sure to visit Reaper’s website (paradeofhorrorables.com), and subscribe to his Youtube page!!

Other than that, be sure to catch up on Screaming Soup!

SCREAMING AT NEW YEAR’S EVE 2015!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! This is it . . . the final days of 2015. We haven’t been keeping track, but does anyone know when the next doomsday is prophesized to be? 2000 was the last big one, and then there was that religious scare the same year Macho Man Randy Savage died and was rumored to have elbowed dropped the apocalypse on his way in the pearly gates. But when’s the next end of days scare for stockpiling toilet papers and asking for forgiveness supposed to be? Oh well, just so long as it’s not this year, because we have an all new season of Screaming Soup! that’s too good to be blown away in a blaze of Armageddon!

To catch you up on our Christmas, it was pretty peaceful, and we came out of it with over 50 horror films, an Ash figure, Scooby-Doo cartoons, and Bruce Campbell’s first appearance in a comic book, the graphic adaptation of Moontrap. Not a bad haul, huh? But when we weren’t throwing back alcoholic eggnog while laughing at bad movies, we were working hard on the final touches to Season 3, and prepping for the warm up video, Screaming Soup! Presents Doggone Horror, where we give a few unfriendly animal titles to watch out for when you’re with a sensitive dog lover. Look for that video to be posted 1/10/16.

Other than that, be sure to catch up on Screaming Soup! Seasons 1-2 before the premier of Season 3 1/20/16, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!

SCREAMING AT GHOULIGANS CHRISTMAS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Like most everyone else about now, we’ve been occupied with scratching the itch to see the Star wars sequel we’ve all been waiting for, and luckily, it didn’t disappoint! But when our attention’s not in a galaxy far far away, we’ve been solely focused on making sure this upcoming season of Screaming Soup! is gonna outshine the rest.

We’ll never forget when a good friend of ours was reviewing an episode for us halfway through the production of Season 2, and toward the end he started fastfowarding. “Why did you do that?” we asked. “Because I know what’s going to happen.” That was just the reality check we needed to realize the episodes were getting a little too patterned and predictable, and we needed to change up the show to keep the interests of you Scream Freaks. This evolution began with the Slime City review in episode 17, and slowly built up little by little for setting up the new format that’ll be seen in Season 3. What that means is you’ll be seeing more out of Deadwest and the gang with fully developed story arcs, high stakes action, and some new wild locations that expands the Crosslands beyond the Howl-Inn Grub and Spirits.

Luckily, we were smart enough to start a yearly schedule for producing a full season of Screaming Soup!, meaning we have 12 months to animate a season before its premier. So, while you’re watching Season 2, we’re working on Season 3. We typically like to wrap up production by Halloween so we can enjoy the holidays and just prep for the following season, but we have fallen behind some this year for a couple of reasons. One reason we’re just now working on the season finale for season 3 is because of those Bruce Campbell videos we made for Halloween, and then the Ghouligans enlisted our services for a Christmas music video. Yup, this gang of top notch horror entertainers were impressed enough with their cameo in the Season 2 finale, that they wanted more! It was interesting working on another show’s animation, but it was a lot of fun, and those guys are just a great lot to work with. So, if you haven’t seen that video yet, watch below, and because it’s G-rated, you can share it with your friends and family!

Enough rambling already! Be sure to catch up on Screaming Soup! Seasons 1-2 before the premier of Season 3 1/20/16, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!

SCREAMING AT THE ORIGINAL EVIL DEAD ARTIST, TOM SULLIVAN!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Christmas is still a little ways off, but we want to give you fans an early gift this holiday season. We previously mentioned we were working on a very special artist spotlight for the Graphic Headstone blog, and that interview is now complete and approved by the artist himself for public consumption. For our final Graphic Headstone entry for 2015, we proudly present the original artist of the Evil Dead series since ground zero, Tom Sullivan!

For those who don’t know, Tom was the creative whirlwind behind the art, special effects, and stop-motion animation of the original Evil Dead film, and its short film predecessor, Within the Woods. He continued working on effects in Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness, and has had varying levels of involvement with later incarnations of the Evil Dead series.

We first met Tom years ago when he caught us selling self-made copies of his Necronomicon book from Evil Dead 2 online. Amazed one of Evil Dead’s most legendary names was contacting us directly, we of course complied with his demands to cease and desist further infringement on his copyrighted work immediately. Flattered by our respect for his wishes and impeccable duplication of his book, Tom asked to do a trade. For a copy of our Necronomicon knock-off, he mailed us a packet slammed with art prints and copies of his short lived comic, Tom Sullivan’s Books of the Dead: Devilhead, and even invited us to meet him at an upcoming horror convention. Without hesitation, we drove like crazed fan boys and met this living legend in person. Tom is a very nice and easy guy to speak with. He showed us his collection of fan-made Necronomicons he showcases at conventions (ours included), let us hold and look through the ORIGINAL Necronomicon from the first film, and introduced us to all the filmmakers at the convention including Roy Frumkes who gave us a free signed DVD of Street Trash. It was a very memorable experience and is what helped jumpstart our career paths in horror entertainment.

So, whether you’re an Evil Dead fan or just a lover of horror and art, click HERE and read our interview with one of horror’s most memorable artists. You’ll read some Evil dead stories, what Tom’s been doing since Evil Dead, see a lot of really cool Cthulhu art, and learn about a recent documentary that was released about Tom which you can watch the trailer for below.

Enough Evil Dead rambling already! Be sure to catch up on Screaming Soup!

SCREAMING AT HALLOWEEN 2015!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks and Happy Halloween! This has been one crazy month with our first attempt at publishing daily videos and blogs to celebrate the premier of Bruce Campbell’s “Ash VS Evil Dead” on Starz Halloween night, but we feel it was worth it. Some dedicated Bruce Campbell fans got to enjoy the highlights of his career everyday this month, we made some people laugh, and even got a positive tweet from the King himself saying, “Let’s do this,” when tagging him in our promo for dedicating this Halloween to the King of B. Then there’s the daily pumpkin spice blog, this year’s Halloween Eeeh!-Card, the season 2 finale with the Ghouligans, etc., etc.

But now Halloween is here, and we’re just chilling. Sure, we’re still wrapping up production for Screaming Soup! Season 3 (premiering 1/20/16), drawing up more promotional art, editing together special advertising vids, and prepping for Season 4 but we think we can take a breather for the holiday. Yup, we’re just going to attend our favorite annual haunt this time of year, pop open a cold one and watch the Simpsons Treehouse of Horrors marathon on FXX while digging into bowls of candy and plates of bat wings and witch fingers.

Other than that, check out all our Bruce Campbell vids from “Bruce VS” to “Bruce Takes It In The Face”, and the popular “Tribute to Bruce Campbell” vid, learn about everything that now comes in pumpkin spice in “Mandy’s I Can’t Believe They Have Pumpkin,” and send someone special a Halloween Eeeh!-Card this holiday. And of course, play any and all of Screaming Soup! Seasons 1-2 this Halloween, no matter where you are and help get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror show! Please use our social buttons in the upper right corner of the site and follow our tweets, subscribe to our Youtube channel, like our Facebook, watch and share all our vids, and keep that fan mail coming.

So, a happy and safe Halloween to all you Scream Freaks out there. May your costumes be fun and slutty, your parties never be forgotten, and your cars be vomit free by the end of the night. I’ll see ya later, Scream Freaks!

SCREAMING AT THE SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE SERIES!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks and Happy Early Halloween w/ our season 2 finale! It’s been an amazing season this year, and we’re wrapping it up with a half hour Mega review of the classic Slumber Party Massacre series from Roger Corman! Mecha-bull riding, bobbing for grenades, hottie contest, pumpkin carving . . . we blow this party out like none other!

Everyone from seasons past are invited and even some new lovely faces make an appearance, but we’re most stoked about the special guests of the night, the Ghouligans! Despite their recent retirement from the horror entertainment business after 10 years, they were cool enough to dust off the fangs and capes to humble us with a cameo that’s like no other Ghouligans performance seen before (because its animated, duh). We’re happy to have connected with this stellar group and hope to work together again in the near future. Despite them closing up shop, you can still dig up their work for some howling entertainment at their website and/or Youtube channel!

Now, just because we won’t be back with more Screaming Soup! episodes until Jan’16, doesn’t mean this site will be abandoned till then.

SCREAMING AT BRUCE CAMPBELL’S DEATH REEL AND THE GHOULIGANS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks!

Wow! Halloween is almost here and there’s so much going on it’s nuts! First off, in response to our excitement over the all new Ash VS Evil Dead TV series premiering 10/31/15 on the Starz network, we’re still continuing our month long celebration of Bruce Campbell with daily “Bruce VS” vids in all their video game parody glory, a tribute video highlighting the King of B’s 30+ years in acting, and an all NEW Bruce Campbell Death Reel countdown with our favorite death being the one that made us laugh the hardest! We’re also continuing our 31 days of Pumpkin Spice hell with “Mandy’s I Can’t Believe They Have Pumpkin,” and drew up an all NEW Screaming Soup! Halloween Eeeh-Card! for this year!

Lot to take in, right? But there’s more! For those who didn’t read the blog last week, we’re having some special guests briefly bounce back from retirement to make a cameo in the Season 2 finale of Screaming Soup!, the Ghouligans! These guys have been rocking and howling the west coast for the last 10 years (Click HERE for their Youtube channel), but sadly hung up their capes and fangs just a few months ago. Luckily, the magic of animation can’t be denied and they were more than happy to attend our Halloween blowout! Extreme pumpkin carving, Halloween hottie contests, bobbing for grenades, mechanical devil bull riding, and all while reviewing the Slumber Party Massacre Series! It’s going to be a treat for all Scream Freaks and Ghouligan fans alike!

Other than that, keep checking back here every day for more “Bruce Campbell VS” and “Mandy’s I Can’t Believe They Have Pumpkin,” and be sure to catch up on all the latest Screaming Soup! episodes so far for season 2 before seeing the season finale 10/20/15 with special guests, the Ghouligans (www.theghouligans.com)! Please use our social buttons in the upper right corner of the site and follow our tweets, subscribe to our Youtube channel, like our Facebook, watch and share all our vids, and keep that fan mail coming.
