SCREAMING AT HARDWARE AND DEATH MACHINE!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Throw your claws in the air and scream, ’cause it’s time for an ALL NEW episode of Screaming Soup! Durin’ your last visit to the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits, things were gettin’ pretty damned hectic with the arrival of the Iron Horsemen of Doom. These mean hombres wanna send the Crosslands back into the dark ages to return their fallen masters to power, and they need our Billy to do it! Tarnations! Big top bar brawls, nuclear crossovers, and now this?!

Good thin’ we got plenty of movies to help us cope with all the stress, and this time ’round, we take a look at two rock ’em sock ’em battle bot flicks from the ’90s called Hardware and Death Machine. Late to the party, we neglected these techno nightmares for far too long and are more than happy to finally check them off our bucket list. We were completely in the dark regardin’ Hardware for the longest time but hunted this sucker down after readin’ a pretty enamored review in Fangoria’s book, 101 Best Horror Movies You’ve Never Seen. Death Machine, on the other claw, is somethin’ we regretfully passed up in the video aisles for years, never suspectin’ that ambiguous box art was giftwrappin’ a unique mish mash of movie mayhem we’ve come to love and always on the lookout for. Thank Craven for Netflix offerin’ this at one point and helpin’ correct the errors of our ignorant ways.

But enough ’bout that. You’re eager to watch the new episode, we’re anxious to show it, so skip on down and get on with it for both our sakes. Let’s rewatch this sucker ’til our eyes bleed and then catch back up with the new Joe Bob Briggs marathon on Shudder this comin’ weekend, what do ya say?

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! Please use our social buttons in the upper right corner of the site and follow our tweets, subscribe to our video channels, like our Facebook, watch and share all our vids, and keep that fan mail comin’.

For all you fearmakers out there workin’ on your next scary feature, remember to shoot it our way as an entry in our Scream Freak Film Contest! Three winners will be reviewed in our 50th episode and promoted to all the Scream Freaks lookin’ for the next big thing Hollywood’s too scared to capitalize on. Deadline’s 8/20/18, so hurry!

Warm up some Screaming Soup! leftovers with reruns currently playin’ on Beta Max TV and Sluggo’s The Vortexx!

See ya later, Scream Freaks!

SCREAMING AT HORROR COMICS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! As you would have guessed it, things have been busy ’round our parts, and we’re hurryin’ as fast as we can to bring you the next excitin’ episode of Screaming Soup! Until then, there’s been plenty goin’ on behind the scenes we can’t wait to share with ya!

For starters, we can officially say we got one of the alternate covers for Full Moon Comix’ Dollman Kills the Full Moon Universe #3 due out ’round October! Yeehaw, that achievement feels real good, if we say so ourselves, and we can’t wait for y’all to see it along with the rest our work we did for them! For those of y’all keepin’ track, we got a page of art in the first and second issue, and now we’re one of the cover options for the third issue. So, if Dollman blowin’ up all your favorite Full Moon characters wasn’t enough incentive to buy the series already, now you know you’ll also be collectin’ artwork in these historic issues by us here at Screaming Soup!

All this excitement has definitely lit a fire under our asses to make more headway with our plans for a Screaming Soup! comic we mentioned a while back. It’s currently planned to be a four issue mini-series and will be a prequel that shares a few of our adventures in the Crosslands before settlin’ down at the Howl-Inn Grub and Spirits. We already have the plots figured out and started draftin’ page layouts which we just finished for the first issue. This goes against normal practice somewhat, but we’re gonna complete all four issues before hittin’ up potential publishers we have in mind for printin’ this series. We’re gonna make sure every issue is packed with humor, action, monsters, and content not already found in the show.

And while we’re on the topic of horror comics, be sure to swing by our latest reviews of what we’re readin’ on our Sequential Slime blog. There’s a lot of good horror movie tie-in comics hittin’ the racks right now, and we give ya our two cents on most of them issue by issue. We bitch ’bout the Army of Darkness/KISS crossover rehashin’ Raimi’s third Evil Dead flick for the umpteenth time, praise the latest Big Trouble in Little China mini-series, ride the fence on the brand spankin’ new books on Pumpkinhead and Jeepers Creepers, and fall into abysmal disappointment over Robocop’s latest storyline. Despite great artwork, it always comes down to story determinin’ how well these comics are received or not.

Before we forget, let us mention to ya we think the El Rey Network may have finally watched our Screaming Soup! submission for their animated edition of the People’s Network. We haven’t been officially notified or anythin’ yet, but we saw the YouTube views on that private video jumped a little which is GREAT, ’cause that means someone watched it at least three times. Fangs crossed that means one judge watched it and liked it enough to promote it ’round the office over there or somethin’. And if that weren’t enough excitement to keep us on the edge of our bar stool, we were remindin’ folks in a tweet ’bout our excitement over the return of legendary horror host Joe Bob Briggs on Shudder, and a fan replied with interest in seein’ the two of us in some kind of crossover. We fired back we have a script written for such a horrific ocassion, and Joe Bob directly hit us up wantin’ to read it! Toxic taco toadies, can you imagine the sonic boom thunderin’ ‘cross the lands from our heads explodin’ if somethin’ so surreal were to happen as Joe Bob Briggs doin’ a crossover with our show?!! Breath . . .

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 HALLOWEEN 2018 AND FULL MOON COMIX!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! We’re happy to FINALLY find the time to touch base with ya and shoot the shit on what’s been happenin’ lately.

First off, the next episode is still truckin’ along and will be a doomsday machine double feature with our gang standin’ our ground ‘gainst the Iron Horsemen of Doom so they don’t get their mitts on Billy for all the worst reasons. It’s full of action, laughs, and we even grill some awful remakes.

Speakin’ of remakes, you see the new trailer for the 2018 Halloween? Really mixed feelin’s on our end. We’re excited ‘bout Jamie and Carpenter’s return to the franchise that made them legends, but at the same time, isn’t this story kind of like Halloween: H20 take two? We understand now why this movie was hard to peg as a sequel, remake, or reboot durin’ its news hype. It’s technically a sequel to the original ’78 Halloween, but it’s also rebootin’ the series while kind sorta remakin’ H20, Halloween 2, and ah hell, maybe even Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2. You followin’ this? What’s worst is that title. Halloween?! Did the filmmakers try outdoin’ Stallone’s system for namin’ Rambo movies or somethin’?! It was easy enough to separate the last remake from the original in conversations, because they were simply referred to as Halloween and Rob Zombie’s Halloween. Now, we gotta specify if we’re rantin’ ‘bout Halloween, Rob Zombie’s Halloween, or the 2018 Halloween ‘cause Carpenter ain’t enough clarification since he’s involved with the ’78 version and the newest one. This is getting’ as bad as Leatherface’s movies now with Halloween arguably havin’ as many as five timelines; Timeline 1) Halloween ’78 – Halloween: Resurrection, Timeline 2) Halloween ’78, Halloween: H20Halloween: Resurrection, Timeline 3) Halloween ’78 – Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, Timeline 4) Rob Zombie’s Halloween 1-2, and now Timeline 5) Halloween ’78 – Halloween 2018. And I’m not even gonna get into the alternate timelines in the Halloween comics over the years!

In other news, we haven’t heard a peep from the El Rey Network yet ‘bout our video submission to be featured in one of their animation showcases. Fangs crossed though, ‘cause we can see on our YouTube channel they haven’t watched the vid yet which means there’s still a chance we could be nationally broadcast right out of Robert Rodriguez’s ranch sometime in the near future. We’ve also been busy hittin’ Full Moon Empire up for more work on their new in-house comic, Dollman Kills the Full Moon Universe. Yup, we closed the deal on havin’ artwork in the first issue, and currently meetin’ some fast deadlines for squeezin’ more work into the second issue while gunnin’ to be one of the variant covers for issue three! This historic series is due to hit stands in comic shops ‘cross the country beginnin’ in August, so keep an eye out! As far as our own aspirations for a prequel comic to Screaming Soup!, we decided to expand it to a four issue limited series since most graphic novels are made of four or more comics. More work of course, but this is somethin’ we’re compelled to check off our bucket list.

Lastly, we returned to ConCarolinas recently. Sadly, we dropped the ball for getting’ on any panels and had to sit on the bench and hang our heads at every overlooked detail we felt the “professionals” failed to mention durin’ conversations ‘bout Godzilla and horror icons. Putrid polecats! One good thing that came of it, though, was meetin’ some indie filmmakers who seemed very enthusiastic when we mentioned them and their fellow cinephiles enterin’ our Scream Freak Film Contest. Can’t wait to see what they submit!

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 EL REY NETWORK!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Long time, no see! Sorry for the black out period that may have left you thinkin’ we fell off the face of the graveyard, but we’re back now and ready and rearin’ to jump back in the saddle and get this rodeo movin’ again. For y’all who just gotta know what’s happenin’ on our side of the Crosslands, we’ve had a full plate. While still workin’ on the next excitin’ episode of Screaming Soup! (which will be a doomsday machine double feature by the way), we’ve been stickin’ our gnarled thumbs in other pies recently. That sounded dirtier than intended, didn’t it?

First off, we cut together pieces of past Screaming Soup! episodes to produce an adventure we could submit to the El Rey Network, better known as Robert Rodriquez’s cable channel. See, every so often El Rey features somethin’ called the People’s Network Showcase which broadcasts a handful of submitted works by filmmakers and artists on the rise. The point is to help get these creative folks exposure so fans and talent hungry companies alike can discover them and hopefully boost their career one way or another. Along with horror, suspense, and action showcases, the People’s Network also has an animated category which promotes all kinds of animators from stop-motion and CGI to 2D animation and still pictures . After watchin’ the latest animation showcase and seein’ El Rey’s lookin’ to round up enough content for a third round at their site right now, we couldn’t pass up another opportunity and made the time to enter our show. If it gets picked, we’ll tell ya right now, there’s no review. It’s strictly an animated adventure with your favorite gang from the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits, ’cause we don’t wanna be disqualified for too long a runnin’ time or for includin’ copyrighted content they may be uncomfortable broadcastin’ despite the fair use laws. This was submitted a short time ago, so fangs crossed we’ll get some national exposure soon!

We also took a whole weekend to invite a bunch of our posse back to record dialogue for future Screaming Soup! episodes which have now been written through Season 7. It was a lot of fun to see some returnin’ faces along with new talent which ran the full gamut of actin’ from stage and film actors to newbies and folks who doubled for Bruce Willis and James Woods back in the day. Most the recordings went really well, but there were some actors who needed a little more work with the characters we’d randomly throw at them to voice, makin’ for some hilarious bloopers we need to share sometime.

Lastly, we’re still gung-ho about the idea of a Screaming Soup! comic book now that we’re armed with the knowledge it’s highly probable it could be picked up by one of these smaller publishers we’ve been noticin’ at the comic shops. We definitely have a three issue mini-series locked down as far as plot and story are concerned, we just need to start fillin’ in the details and puttin’ art to paper at this point. In other comic news, we deserve a big ol’ pat on the back ’cause one of our original drawin’s will be appearin’ in Full Moon Comix’s first publication, Dollman Kills the Full Moon Universe! Wooo-doggy, right?! Yessir, thanks to the connections we made with the fine folks over at Full Moon Empire, we luckily pitched the right kind of Full Moon artwork to them and was hired to work with author/screen writer Brockton McKinney in bringin’ it to print. We don’t wanna reveal too much about it, but we will say it’s a parody of those ol’ gag ads we use to see all the time in comics when you could still buy x-ray specs and tanks in the mail.

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 HORROR COMICS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! We’ve been proponents of comics for as long as we can remember and are thrilled the rest of the world has finally caught up with givin’ them the recognition they deserve as a respectable outlet of literature. Course this has backfired somewhat, ’cause the same pretentious folks who were snobs about the artistic merit of comics are now oversaturatin’ comics’ fan base as born again funny book supporters, which kind of robs comics of their attraction a little, you know? It’s like havin’ a favorite cult film. It’s a cult film because only a few sickos with warped minds find any joy in watchin’ and celebratin’ entertainment the mainstream audience deems trash. But overtime, these trashy flicks gain traction thanks to video releases, cable broadcasts, and websites, and suddenly your outsider quirks for wearin’ Evil Dead 2 t-shirts or havin’ Big Trouble in Little China up poster on your wall don’t seem all that special anymore. But don’t get us wrong. Popularity in the mainstream means companies and studios will happily pump out more stories of our favorite monsters and psycho slashers for a buck, and the fast track for meetin’ these demands are typically comics.

Over the years, we have made it our business to hunt down the complete run of comics related to our favorite series of horror flicks. You name it, we more than likely have it. Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Child’s Play, Fright Night, and even the coveted and super rare copy of Phantasm: Overminds, the first and last time we pay more than $20 for a single funny book. The only exception we make for collectin’ these are the direct comic adaptations of movies themselves. They can give ya insight for how a movie might have played out if there was no such thing as a budget, but why do I want a comic when I already have the movie, you know?

This is a tradition that continues today with more companies than ever willin’ to license old movies for rag picture books, and we keep track of our favorite titles issue for issue at our Sequential Slime blog. For fun, we thought we’d clue you in to what’s recently come out and sum up our thoughts on them.

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA

Based on one of Carpenter’s zaniest flicks, this is an impressive series that’s yet to produce a bad issue. Jack Burton continues his Asian themed adventures with most the original characters from Big Trouble in Little China which includes a resurrected Lo Pan as the regular baddie out for revenge. With Carpenter guidin’ the stories, the series is full of humor, action, character, and charm as Jack drives his truck to hell and back fightin’ supernatural spooks, booger beasts, apocalyptic demons, and even Snake Plissken!

HATCHET    

Putrid polecats! Adam Green’s retro lovin’ gore trilogy ’bout a swamp slasher literally tearin’ folks apart makes for great popcorn flicks, but its first swing at bein’ a comic leaves a lot to be desired. The story is so-so ’bout college filmmakers makin’ a horror movie at Victor Crowley’s ol’ stompin’ ground, but the art is damn near detestable with it lookin’ rushed and half assed by the second issue. We’d only recommend this series to the die-hard fans.

ASH VS THE ARMY OF DARKNESS

Runnin’ strong after more than a decade in a consistently published comic series, we have a love/hate relationship with Dynamite’s stories of Ash’s continuin’ fight against the Deadites. More often than not, the series has been cannibalizin’ Sam Raimi’s movies from its plots to its one liners, resultin’ in an inbred product that rarely dares to take Ash and the series in new directions. The latest five issue mini, Ash vs The Army of Darkness, ain’t all bad with some new lore and villains added to the series as Ash goes undercover at a school infested with Deadites, but it still leaves a lot to be desired. As a side note, avoid the latest AOD/Xena crossover “Forever . . . And A Day” like a boonies proctologist with used tongs. Worst AOD story EVER published to paper!

THE HOWLING

A truer sequel to the original Joe Dante flick than Howling II: . . . Your Sister’s A Werewolf, these comics pick up after Dee Wallace is put down on live television and follows Marsha Quist as the movie’s lone survivin’ werewolf on a killin’ spree for magic that will give her control over a bunch of zombie werewolves. This is a very so-so series. It’s well made, but we think the artist needs to up the gore, and the writer should mesh Marsha’s story more with Chris’s (Dee’s coworker who shoots her on TV and is on the run from the government wantin’ to shut him up ’bout the existence of werewolves).

PUPPET MASTER

This is the best movie tie in comic on the rack today, Scream Freaks! Comin’ to the end of its licensin’ contract, Action Labs is wrappin’ up an amazin’ run of stories that not only bring back Full Moon Empire’s killer splinters but manages to cleverly cover up a lot of the movies’ plotholes. Brilliantly written, full of gory action, and thankfully brings the puppets back to modern times for more adventures that include some of our favorite characters from the first six flicks. We cannot recommend this one enough before its gone!

And there you have it, Scream Freaks. Some of today’s horrific titles we’re keepin’ track of for better or worse, and you can keep tabs on it all by checkin’ in on our blog, Sequential Slime.

And for those Scream Queen aficionados, we’re still celebratin’ B-Queen Sybil Danning all this month as our Howlin’ Hottie of the Week, which is the first time we’ve ever spotlighted the same horror honey for four consecutive weeks. This week we’re enjoyin’ her glam warrior outfit from Howling II which is a hoot of a commonly bashed flick with her playin’ a orgy lovin’ werewolf employin’ midget henchmen to stop Christopher Lee from killin’ her. Most remembered for her topless shirt rippin’ scene that’s replayed 17 times in the movie! Be sure to check more out the next couple of weeks, and let us know what your favorite Sybil flick is.

SCREAMING AT THE SEASON 4 FINALE!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! We’re in the thick of October now and feel the excitement buildin’ with Halloween right around the corner. Houses decked out in creepy decorations, scary flicks playin’ all over TV, store aisles overflowin’ with cavity causin’ candy . . . most wonderful time of the year, I tell you what! And what Halloween hootenanny would be complete without the annual Screaming Soup! season finale full of outrageous pranks, frightful fights, and monstrous mayhem?

The season 4 finale is still in the works, but we’re aimin’ for it to be released no later than Halloween day. As mentioned before, there’s a LOT in this 30+ minute episode comin’ up. We’re wrappin’ up a lot of tensions among characters, endin’ the crossover with Full Moon, teasin’ at things to come in season 5, and reviewin’ the entire Toxic Avenger series. You know, when we started Screaming Soup! we managed tight stories that could be produced into full 15 minute episodes within 3 weeks. When we decided to go all out and make Season 4 as big as we could make it with Full Moon’s involvement, we suddenly found ourselves needin’ four to sometimes six weeks to complete a 20-40 minute episode. There’s more characters, backgrounds, voices, and reviews in this than any other season of Screaming Soup! The first 3 seasons, it would take us 10 months to produce 10 episodes with 12-13 film reviews. This season, 10 episodes took us 16 months to complete with a total of 35 reviews. Our skeleton crew put about 3 seasons worth of work into one and we think it came out pretty damn well!

To hold you over ’til we break out this explosive finale, be sure to visit our blogs for comedic bite size reviews. We’re always updatin’ our R-Rated Review blog as soon as we watch a horror flick and just updated our Sequential Slime reviews of some horror flick-related comics we just picked up. And so you’re in the loop, our appearance at Alchemy Comedy last week went well, but our cameraman unfortunately had technical issues that prevented it from bein’ recorded. Major bummer given we were plannin’ on puttin’ that video up for y’all to enjoy, and we hate that it went down that way. We have more appearances scheduled at Big Fandom Greenville in November and will hopefully record enough of that to share at that time.

In the meantime, 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 SECONDARY VIDEOS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Another week, another marathon keepin’ the wheels rollin’ on our most epic season yet! We announced the arrival of Toulon’s teenie tiny assassins from the Puppet Master series for our next ultra review, and as excited as everyone’s been about that, some of you have been askin’ about our other vids that take a look at horror related comics and toons. Rest assured, this current season’s been a lot of work (3 years in the makin’!), but we’re doin’ our best to knock out some more Graphic Violence and Re-Animated Reviews before it’s all over!

We have all the comics and cartoons for different Troma and Full Moon properties and written reviews for each, but gettin’ to the video stage has been delayed a lot more than expected. We are plannin’ to review comics related one way or another to Herbet West from Re-Animator, we’ve got a complete review of every Puppet Master comic series to date with notes on how they work into the continuity of the Full Moon movies, and we collected every obscure Toxic Avenger related comic to review along with the Toxic Crusaders cartoon. So, it’s all in the works, and we’re gettin’ to it as fast as we can without sacrificin’ the quality of the regular animated episodes.

And with Halloween drawin’ closer, we’re addin’ more fun times to our schedule with different cameos and appearance comin’ up in the next couple of months. We already announced we’ll be doing a crossover video with our friends The Horror Addicts premierin’ in October, but we also have a crossover in the works for next season with Kaci the Homicidal Homemaker. We’re also brainstormin’ some horror related topics for panel discussions to attend at this years’ Big Fandom Greenville, and have an improv group invitin’ us to be special guests at one of their shows where they’ll perform improv inspired by clips from our show they’ll be playin’ on (duh duh DUH!) Friday the 13th this Halloween. That’s an event we’ll be sure to share with y’all!

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 SHARK WEEK 2017!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! As many of you know, it’s Shark Week, and several horror host/YouTube reviewers are blowin’ their channels out with everything shark related right now. We want to do somethin’ in that same vein with a series of shark movie reviews we’ve been itchin’ to do since we started our show, but our hard pressed animation schedule usually prevents it from happenin’. Despite this hindrance, however, we still want to share with you the horrific shark movies we enjoy watchin’, excludin’ the big kahuna blockbusters like the Jaws and Sharknado series. These ain’t full reviews or even R-Rated Reviews, but just a heads up for killer fish flicks to watch out for if you’re lookin’ for things that step up the genre.

SHARKMAN aka HAMMERHEAD (2005)

William Forsythe’s gotta sink Jeffrey Combs’ mad science experiments for curin’ cancer, because they involve poor women bein’ mated with a mutant shark man who keeps eatin’ them! Fun movie with a great Street Sharks kinda monster stalkin’ people in the water and on land. We have plans for animating a review of this flick in the future. 4/5!

ycreatPETER BENCHLEY’S CREATURE (1998)

The U.S. Government creates a feral Stan Winston shark man for winning the Vietnam war but scraps the gene splicing project as soon as he goes on a frenzy. Decades later, the beast with teeth is accidentally freed and treats himself to some Caribbean islanders unless marine biologist Craig T. Nelson and his family can stop him! 3/5!

GHOST SHARK (2013)

The tide carries a shark’s bloated corpse into a magical cave that manifests its spirit into free flyin’ ecto-terror with teeth! With water as its conduit, no one’s safe as you watch this lost Ghostbusters goober tear into folks from bubble baths to lawn sprinklers with Richard Moll playin’ its Ahab. 4/5!

SHARKTOPUS (2010)

Roger Corman brings us a freaky hybrid of a shark crossed with an octopus that gobbles you up at sea or on the beach! It’s military science gone horribly wrong with Eric Roberts racin’ to the rescue! 4/5!

 

SAND SHARKS (2011)

If Tremors was less creative with its Jaws inspired graboids, then you’d have Sand Sharks. Sharks are literally swimmin’ through sand and threatenin’ a beach’s livelihood unless a professional partyer and Dr. Brooke Hogan can blow it up. Sounds like a silly movie, but fun characters and nice production value. 4/5!

And that’s pretty much it, Scream Freaks! The shark movies that instantly send us into a happy frenzy whenever they’re on TV, and we’d highly recommend each of these for a DVD purchase if you’re lookin’ to add some wild new stuff to your horror collection. We hope to have more shark movies to share in the near future, but these should be enough to hold you over for now.

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!

Warm up some Screaming Soup! leftovers with reruns scheduled to play on Sluggo’s The Vortexx (after 9PM EST Sunday and Wednesday nights)!

If you need the hook-up with instant Troma and Full Moon movies, we’d suggest watching Troma’s films for free on their Youtube channel, and you can get full access to Full Moon’s catalog of work from their movies to their Videozone clips at Full Moon Streaming and their Amazon channel.

See ya later, Scream Freaks!

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!!

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!
