SCREAMING AT DOCTOR MORDRID AND POULTRYGEIST!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! If you haven’t heard yet, we got a brand spankin’ new episode up for ya! Yessir, the B-movie war wages on, and after visitin’ Full Moon’s base last time, we now get a look at how the other side lives in a hectic town where gangs run rampant, mutants unleash mayhem, and outbreaks of angry Native American chicken ghosts are always a concern!

This is an important episode, because we’re at the halfway point of the season now with only 5 episodes left, and things are only gonna get crazier from here on out! We spent these first few episodes gettin’ to know the key players while reviewin’ some of the more obscure titles everyone may not have seen, and we know some of you, especially the  Full Moon fans, are gettin’ antsy. You’re beggin’ to see more of your favorite characters jump out of the backgrounds and play a bigger part in the war. You’re demandin’ to know why we wasted other favorites as war casualties. You’re confused as to who’s winnin’ and how we’re keepin’ score. Some of you are even questionin’ why you haven’t seen some of the more obvious characters animated yet like Toulon’s puppets from Puppet Master!

Because we think you Scream Freaks deserve some answers after all the support you’ve given us, here’s what’s what. This war offers a big spotlight for many characters, but not everyone can fit in it, includin’ the regular Screaming Soup! cast. That’s why we’re packin’ as many characters from your favorite movies into the backgrounds as possible, with full blown animation reserved for those we think serve the story best for laughs or developin’ this season’s story arc. We also want to stick with writtin’ about characters we’re more familiar with to reduce chances of pissin’ off fans who think their favorite heroes and villains are given shit treatment. A prime example of this is Jack Deth from Trancers and Radu from Subspecies. We’ve known about these movies for along time but didn’t have the opportunity to watch them until well after the season was written thanks to Full Moon Streaming.

Another big decidin’ factor for what characters get featured are the movies we want to review and think you should know about. This gets a little confusin’, however, because some movies we originally wrote episodes around had to be switched out upon request. Episodes 33 and 35 were supposed to review Rawhead Rex and Prison which is why those characters are so prominent, but due to marketing reasons, Full Moon asked us to review other films like Blood Dolls and Doctor Mordrid instead which is fine by us and required minimal tweaks to the finished animation. And spoiler alert, we won’t be doin’ any reviews for Gingerdead Man or Evil Bong this season. We want to provide reviews of complete up to date series and Full Moon’s still crankin’ out sequels for those two in a hurry! And both series crossover with each other more than once, makin’ us feel like we have to review both at the same time which would leave even less room for other flicks we want to talk about this season. Now, you’ll still get to see them animated in the show, because they’re too good of characters to not include, and you’ll even get some foreshadowin’ of the trouble Gingerdead Man will be bringin’ to the war in this latest episode!

As far as the scorin’ goes and who’s winnin’ the war . . . we ain’t keepin’ track of all that. Makes us sound like a bunch of assholes, but we thought the thunderdome fightin’ would get old real quick and preferred focusin’ on more of these story buildin’ sideline battles like the basement mud wrestlin’ and Full Moon’s base bein’ infiltrated by spies. We originally intended for the ratin’ of the opponents’ flicks to determine who’d win the matches, but somethin’ about that didn’t feel like it would keep y’all on your toes enough. We think the more unpredictable the outcomes the better, makin’ the episodes more interestin’ to watch.

And as for Toulon’s puppets . . . they’re around and will get plenty of time on screen before this is all over!

Just a reminder, we once again had our “Spot the Dollman Contest” with Scream Freaks on the lookout for Full Moon’s Dollman, a 13 inch cop with an attitude, within the animation of this episode. The first one to email us a freeze frame of the Dollman wins a random Full Moon DVD and an original piece of Screaming Soup! artwork. This episode’s winner is Robert Kern III from Reisterstown, MD. Congratulations!!

Other than that, be sure to catch up on all past Screaming Soup! Seasons, check out this week’s Howl’n Hottie, read recent reviews for the newer horror films and comics we’re checkin’ out in our blogs, R-Rated Reviews and Sequential Slime, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!

SCREAMING AT CONCAROLINA!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! We know this is last minute, but we had to play a little catch up with our schedule after everythin’ that’s been happenin’, and finally got some details for an appearance we previously committed to in North Carolina on Saturday 6/3/17. It’s called ConCarolina, and is a 3 day event with parties, gamin’, film festivals, dealer rooms, and an ass load of panels coverin’ a broad number of interests from popular shows to how they’re gonna put a man on mars. Can you guys which part we’re involved with?

Like it or not, we’re only makin’ the rounds for joinin’ discussions on a handful of guest panels we felt were within our wheelhouse. Accordin’ to the SCHEDULE, we’ll be shootin’ the shit on the best and worst horror tropes in “From Zombies to Dolls to House to Clowns” (1pm-2pm), Stranger Things and how retro horror is shaping television and movies in “Stranger Things and the Resurgence of Retro” (7:30pm-8:30pm), and sharin’ our picks for the best zombie flicks in “Dead, But Not Buried: Zombie Films Worth Watching” (11pm-12am). Pretty wide open subjects we’re sure will allow us to bring up every shitty sci-fi/horror flick we’ve had the displeasure of watchin’ like Oversexed Rugsuckers From Mars!

Give us a scream if you can make it out, and bring anythin’ you want us to freely autograph for ya!

In the meantime, be on your toes for the latest episode breakin’ at midnight tonight (EST) and share your  feedback on the next excitin’ battle between Full Moon and you know who!

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

SCREAMING AT RIVERDALE!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! After last week’s blog about what TV we’re watchin’, our favorite ghost gal, Mandy, wanted to share her take on a recent show she’s been checkin’ out, Riverdale. Based on the long runnin’ Archie Comics, the ginger love triangle formula is milked even more, but this time it’s given a Twin Peaks facelift with a teen drama murder mystery. Odd we know, but it doesn’t come as much of a surprise after all the crazy directions Archie comics have been takin’ to inject some new life into their material. In the last handful of years we’ve seen stories like Archie vs Predator, alternative reality specials tellin’ how Archie kicks the bucket, and Afterlife with Archie spins a pretty impressive tale about Archie’s gang survivin’ a zombie apocalypse accidentally brought on by Sabrina the Teenage Witch!

But we’ll save that for another time. Here’s what Mandy’s got to say . . .

Riverdale: Testing the Waters of the CW’s New Take on a Comic Classic

riverdalBy age 12, long before my first date, instinct had told me there’s something inherently wrong with two bright, beautiful girls endlessly scrapping for the attention of one boy. Aside from the fact that both Betty and Veronica thought one hunk of gingerbread was the only sweet thing in the malt shop of their lives, the triangle they formed with Archie Andrews obliterated the legitimacy of their friendship.

Admittedly, I was an advanced reader and a harsh critic, but even at 7 or 8, I longed for rich stories, complex characters, and more sophisticated fashion. So, why have I, like countless others, continued to follow The Archies? How has this franchise, which dates back to the origin of Batman, lasted more than three quarters of a century?

There are many things to like about the crew from Riverdale, but to be concise, the writers and artists offer just enough high school hijinks and grand adventure for us to bring our own fantasies to life. In that sense, we girls (and guys) could do anything—like Barbie. After a while, the generic nature of the series became its strength. As much as we crave the constant stimulation offered by new technologies and trends, we are creatures of habit who long for the comfort of predictability and simplicity.

With that said, my stomach quivered at the thought of my beloved but hopelessly anachronistic girlfriends, B and V, becoming corporeal vixens on the CW. I knew they needed not only an update, but also a major adjustment. However, I’d rather let time simply march on than see my familiar 2-D teens fall into the hands of careless scribes and network execs happy to get a little buzz and a two-season run out of some of the most iconic characters of our time.

That’s precisely why I watched a few episodes before uttering a comment, let alone passing judgment on Riverdale

The show could have had the excitement and emotional impact of a Very Brady sequel. Conversely, it could have induced an episode of retro vertigo by invoking the names of our G-rated guy and gal pals and putting them in perfunctory, pouty Pretty Little Liars scenarios.

While the new series does more than flirt with familiar shows and themes, it’s doing the most important thing a Riverdale refresher could do—make Betty and Veronica real friends. This wise and long overdue decision hinged on the redemption of Veronica Lodge.

Make no mistake, I’ve always been a Betty, despite my envy of Ronnie’s wealth and power—yet the Camila Mendes iteration of the egotistical diva is the linchpin of the Lodge transformation. Reflect on two undeniable teen divas: Blair witches from various decades—Warner from The Facts of Life and Waldorf from Gossip Girl.

river river1

Although both girls matured along with their respective TV series, their niche was narcissism.  The new Veronica is no condescending cliché. As the river tale goes, her pop was into Ponzi. His resulting imprisonment for his financial misdeeds brought her mom, a lonely Hermione Lodge, back to her small town roots.  Their heiress daughter greets that small town with the type of humility that only the strong derive from humiliation. Without this remarkable sense of integrity, the mean girl she once was would have blossomed into the vacuous villain known as Cheryl.

What a brilliant move on the part of the Riverdale writers! The comics have the B and V forming temporary alliances when Cheryl threatens to steal the spotlight they already share with one another. The TV show cements the bond between the eternal frenemies by making Ms. Blossom the vacuous villain from the beginning and positioning Ronnie as the sardonic cheerleader Betty needs as she struggles to subvert her affection for the franchise’s eponymous Archie.

river2The 2017 version of the boy next door lives beside Betty, giving the show a Dawson and Joey kind of vibe.  New V, like ’90s Jen, has been wounded and turns those big city battle scars into words of wisdom. This time, it’s delivered without verbal gymnastics, and the outsider, who quickly becomes a hub of the group, is more elegant and well read than sloppy and emotive.

“I’M BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S, AND THIS PLACE IS STRICTLY IN COLD BLOOD.”

                                    -Veronica Lodge

river4 river3

While we’re talking about Archie, it’s important to mention that he’s not torn between B and V—nor is he distracted by a fellow redhead in the form of Cheryl. Ms. Blossom is all too reminiscent of Holland Roden’s Lydia in the earlier episodes of MTV’s Teen Wolf, but even she can’t captivate the boy who’s hot for teacher! That’s right—Riverdale’s “Dawson” mirrors Pacey’s romance with Ms. Jacobs when he plucks the orchestral strings of music teacher Ms. Grundy, who’s TV persona is at least three decades younger than the schoolmarm in the comics.

river5 river6

I could go on as long as Archie Comics has, but I’ll encapsulate my take on the CW show with a quote from Stephen King:

Let’s get one thing clear right now, shall we? There is no Idea Dump, no Story Central, no Island of the Buried Bestsellers; good story ideas seem to come quite literally from nowhere, sailing at you right out of the empty sky: two previously unrelated ideas come together and make something new under the sun. Your job isn’t to find these ideas but to recognize them when they show up.

In other words, there’s nothing truly new, but it’s the way writers bring together elements of the known world that make a new work shallow and choppy or as deep and ingratiating as a river.

… at least they didn’t go supernatural on us … but wait, have you met their friend, Sabrina?

SCREAMING AT PINATA SURVIVAL ISLAND!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! We see that silly rigor mortis grin spreading across your face and bet that’s because we got an all NEW Screaming Soup! episode for you today! Yessir, today we’re reviewing a horror film we only fell asleep 3 times during . . . Pinata Survival Island. Boozin’ college students, demonic piñatas, and the most lackluster romance to save the day!

In this review, we’re once again visited by the Grim Reaper from Your Final Answer (that guy’s really been hangin’ around) and have a very special cameo by Tiki Z from the indy published Tiki Zombie comics created by Michael Gordon. We’re incredibly grateful for Michael allowing us to animate Tiki Z who we became instant fans of after finding his comics at our local comic shop and insist you Scream Freaks hit him up for copies of his comics and Tiki Zombie soundtrack at tikizombie.net. You won’t regret it!

And real quick to follow up last week’s blog, Blair Witch sucked. It was well made, shot, and acted, but the story sucked because it’s more or less the first movie all over again just with more people, cameras, and effects. So, if you haven’t dropped any deniro for that walletbuster yet, DON’T! Still see it sometime, but wait for Netflix or Redbox. To see what else we thought about it, check out our review on the R-Rated Reviews page.

As a reminder, 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 THE BLAIR WITCH!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Simmer down now, we haven’t seen the new Blair Witch yet but plan on watching it tonight. Fangs crossed it doesn’t just recycle everything from the original. I can only hope we go beyond shaky cams and endless screaming in the woods to actually having witches and other demonic forces chargin’ the screen with a little bit of blood and gore given the budget and technology this series has at its disposal now.

Would you believe some of us didn’t even watch The Blair Witch Project until a handful of years ago! When the original came out, there were so many spoofs made about it from Scary Movie to Scooby-Doo commercials on Cartoon Network and porn parodies like the Bare Wench Project (with B-goddess Julie Strain we might add), several of us felt like we saw the movie already. And after finally sitting our tailbones down and viewing it from reel to reel, we were pretty much right! Still no shame in seeing Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows in the theaters years before checking out the original marketing moneymaker (but we are ashamed of being suckered by the Sci-fi Channel special that promoted the film as real found footage.).

Anyway, working hard on preparing Screaming Soup! Season 4 for 2017, excited about this upcoming episode 9/20/16 with a special cameo by Michael Gordon’s comic book creation, Tiki Zombie (tikizombie.net), still watching buttloads of ’80s slasher movies on YouTube, and picking up some more comics this week which should pop up on our Sequential Slime blog later next week. So, lots going on, gotta go, and see you next week for the all new episode where we review Pinata Survival Island!

SCREAMING AT MORE YOUTUBE MARATHONS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! We almost missed this week’s update , because we’re still glued to the TV watching YouTube video after YouTube video of ’80s slasher flicks digital bootleggers put up. Two-headed show ponies, we never knew there was so much, and we keep finding more!

Hopefully you’re still keeping up with our R-Rated Reviews and see what we’re watching. Some films are eeeehhh, but others are stomach dropping, hair raising, shots of Wa-Pow! to the kisser! We find it funny how we find so many bad movies from the ’80s more tolerable than a lot of the cheaply filmed shit that comes out today. Probably because back then, if you wanted to make a movie, you had to actually work at it! Folks during the ’80s didn’t have cameras on every digital device, allowing dimwits to cobble together shaky cam bullshit with no regard for the art behind filmmaking. No, sir. Making a movie used to be more of a life changing operation, and only the truly committed saw it through. Wrestling with lights, renting filming equipment, investing in expensive footage to film on and then develop . . . there used to be way more care and thought before today’s simple point and shoot mentality. And when you invest that much time, money, and effort into a production, you damn well saw it through as best you could.

Enough of that soapbox jabber! We’re gettin’ back to reviewing/watching more bottom of the barrel entertainment, but look below for YouTube links to some of the better films we’ve seen recently.

As a reminder, be sure to catch up on Screaming Soup!

SCREAMING AT JESSE JAMES MEETS FRANKENSTEIN’S DAUGHTER!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Start poppin’ that popcorn and pour some alcohol in your soda as we kick back for another exciting episode of Screaming Soup! Buzzkill’s still got the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits under his thumb and help is still being recruited for taking him and his monster misfits out. This time the road to victory leads us to legends in both western and horror with the oddball combo of Jesse James and Maria Frankenstein!

These nuts first met in Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter which obviously becomes our flick to review this episode. It’s a different kind of film with its genre mish-mashing that’s a hit and miss from scene to scene, but had enough going on in it for us to have some fun stuff to shoot the shit about. Hopefully without too much trouble from the voodoo hoodoo gang that runs the restaurant we’re meeting them at!

And a special thanks to the Grim Reaper from Your Final Answer for putting up with Buzzkill as a guest star. Check out the Reaper’s website (paradeofhorrorables.com), and subscribe to his Youtube page!!

SCREAMING AT LITTLE MONSTERS

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! It’s Wednesday and that means fresh print just got dumped on the comic racks! If you follow our Sequential Slime blog, you’re already aware of what we’ve been reading and consider the best horror movie related funny books out there right now. We’re still on the fence with the Army of Darkness books, love the Puppet Master comics,and still can’t get over Kurt Russell’s curtain call from comics with the sudden cancelation of Escape From New York and the end of Big Trouble in Little China’s run! But we’re happier than coyotes in a henhouse about the announced crossover between Snake Plissken and Jack Burton!

Anyway, it’s time for another Graphic Violence review, and this time around we picked another lesser known run of licensed rag reads, focusing on the 6 issue mini-series of Little Monsters from NOW comics. Released on the heels of Beetlejuice, Little Monsters is a cult film that’s about a boy named Brian who captures and befriends a monster under his bed named Maurice who introduces Brian to a fantasy world of monsters and magic under the beds of the world. It’s hard to believe this beloved 80s flick isn’t bigger than it is being when it’s so ripe for translating into a successful kids cartoon, but it was simply overlooked for one reason or another.

Lucky for the fans, however, there was one attempt at continuing the adventures of Brian and Maurice, and that was the handful of comics published by NOW comics a few short months after the film’s release in theaters. These comics are alright for the most part, but you’ll need to watch the vid below to get the full run down on what all we liked and despised about them.

SCREAMING AT ANOTHER BLOG ENTRY!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! This summer’s truly flyin’ by our sunburnt mugs, but that’s okay, ’cause it means Halloween’s just around the corner! Still a ways off, we know, but we’ve been busting our tailbones to get things shaking around here in time for the most ass kicking shindig of the year.

We’ve already got production underway for Screaming Soup! Season 4 which is easily proving to be the biggest undertaking of our show, and might just blow the horror community up with all the excitement we hope it’ll generate. Don’t want to say too much more about that surprise yet, but all will be revealed in our Halloween episode 10/20/16. We’re also working on fixing our website’s background layout for those few fans experiencing issues, and we’re looking into setting up some donation links through Youtube and Patreon.

The reason we’re looking at receiving donations is because there are a lot of things we wanna see done with our show and characters but are either spread thin workwise or simply lack the revenue to see some things happen. We’ve got plenty of ideas for trading cards, comics, game apps, a convention booth for appearances, etc., but animation takes so much time it’s almost impossible to complete it all as quickly as we’d like to see it done. With donations, however, we can support other artists and commission a lot of that kind of work and get more Screaming Soup! merch in your hands and quickly. Just need to get that up and running, and see where it goes from there!

Heads up next week, because we’ll be posting our next entry in the Graphic Violence review series 8/10/16 and will be taking a look back at the Little Monsters movie and its 6 issue mini-series from Now Comics. Sure to be informative and fun all at the same time!

SCREAMING AT TICKS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Down a glass of raw protein and prepare to break a sweat, ’cause we’re going to the gym! Not to shred our bods mind ya, but to recruit the first folk on Frankenhooker’s list of the Crossland’s toughest umbres for helping take back the Howl-Inn from Buzzkill and his monster misfits. Yessir, we introduce a lot of new faces this episode with the arrival of Brainbasher, Roogaroo, and the mountains of might known as the Ticking Time Bombs who prove to be less than cooperative.

The Ticking Time Bombs did help inspire this month’s review at least, a nature gone wrong flick from the ’90s called Ticks. Starring Seth Green, Carlton from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and Clint “Infested” Howard, this movie pits troubled campers against dopey dope farmers and giant ‘roid raging ticks they accidentally create. Solid teen performances and great special effects, you have to watch why this is easily one of our favorite bug movies below!

Also wanted to let you Scream Freaks know we swung by the theater this past weekend and checked out the new Ghostbusters that’s all but broken the internet. We came out the other side with surprisingly differing opinions and provide 2 different reviews. We have the flash fry review in our weekly R-Rated Reviews page, and provide a more in depth review by Mandy in a new blog HERE. Enjoy!

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!
