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!

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

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 HALLOWEEN HORROR SEQUELS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Have y’all stopped to notice just how many horror sequels are comin’ out this Halloween season? Like a flashback to the late ’80s, several of our favorite slashers and monsters are knockin’ at Halloween’s door this year, and we’re happier than vamps on a hemophiliac! We always wondered why so many horror movies seem to avoid October releases, so this has been one of the best for us as far as new movie releases go.

While it came a week before October, the Creeper’s third movie still premiered close enough to kind of kick off the holiday with Chucky not too far behind with Cult of Chucky. Here’s what we had to say about those in our R-Rated Reviews:

JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 (2017)

Pickin’ back up with the Creeper’s last 23 day killin’ spree with a story that takes place between parts one and two, a boonies lynch mob guns for the backroads slasher while racin’ him to a farm hidin’ one of his old body parts with secrets to his past. This weakest entry in the Creeper series leaves me happy and pissed at the same time. I can forgive low-budget short comin’s like TV quality effects and most the movie takin’ place durin’ the day, but the story killed me with its weak characters, build-ups with no pay offs, laughable action sequences, and the Creeper’s grab bag of powers that remind me of the randomness in Christopher Reeves’ Superman movies. Suckiest thing about the movie is how two people learn the secrets of the Creeper, but we’re never told any of it! Booby-trap Creepermobiles, impalements, Olympic javelin throwin’, eye-poppin’ gore, dirt bike punks, telekinetic weapons, teen-wolf car surfin’, axes to the face, magical Creeper meat mitts, car flippin’, ricochet road rage, spear fishin’, gattlin’ gun Humvees, haunted arguments, impervious rides, and car-seekin’ road bombs! 3/5!

CULT OF CHUCKY (2017)

Chucky’s back in more ways than one in what could be called his White Sequel and wants revenge on Nica, the last girl on wheels from the previous flick. Committed to a loony bin for the slaughter of her family, Nica’s almost convinced Chucky’s not real until multiple Good Guy dolls start showin’ up in her cuckoo’s nest, each possessed by serial killer Charles Lee Ray thanks to a new voodoo spell he found. While Curse of Chucky returned our favorite foul mouth slasher to his original Child’s Play roots with folks tryin’ to solve the mystery of a homicidal plaything, this sequel brings the scares and humor back to where the series was in part two and three which I think is the perfect balance for the character. Chucky’s front and center again without overshadowin’ his co-stars who successfully hold their own as entertainin’ characters, the gore’s satisfyin’, the doll effects are some of the best in the series, and past storylines are revisited while Chuck’s own story has cool new developments. Multiple personality disorders, possessions, gory gun smugglin’, mother complexes, bloody breast feedin’s, hypnotic foot fetishes, crazy cripple bangin’, head smashin’, stabbin’s, drillin’s, tortured heads, bitin’, bloody messages, silly decapitations, voodoo spells, Andy Barclay returns, and Tiffany returns in flesh and plastic! 4/5!

Next up to return is Leatherface in yet another fuckin’ remake/reboot or whatever you wanna call it, and we got mixed feelin’s about that one given how many times Hollywood wants to hit the restart button on the series. Luckily, that’s not the case with Saw’s eighth flick hot on the heels of Leatherface the followin’ week, continuin’ John Kramer’s torture porn legacy with Jigsaw. While the Saw series has certainly had its ups and downs, we’re more confident in us comin’ out of that sequel satisfied. And then last, if you’re not countin’ Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, Halloween will wrap-up with the release of Amityville: The Awakening which is the first official sequel to the original James Brolin series since Amityville: Dollhouse.

Like we said, lots of long awaited sequels packed in this monstrous month, and it only gets better with some new blood workin’ its way into the mix like Happy Death Day. We saw this howlin’ gem in the theater yesterday and came out cheerin’ for Jessica Rothe as our favorite new last girl for doin’ such an amazin’ job as a girl stuck in a day where she keeps bein’ killed over and over again.

HAPPY DEATH DAY (2017)

It’s the horror version of Groundhoung Day as a bitchy sorority birthday girl finds herself livin’ in a deja vu loop that won’t end ’til she figures out who keeps killin’ her at the end of the repeatin’ day or ’til her chances run out with each resurrection leavin’ her weaker than before. The concept sounds comical, but the filmmakers took this seriously as a horror flick and deliver a fun take on the slasher formula full of great twists and turns and an outstandin’ performance by Jessica Rothe that leaves me wantin’ more! Stabbin’s, deaths by bong, pleasure domes, plot point cupcakes, gunfire, hangin’s, car explosions, bats to the head, drownin’s, fatal freefalls, psycho escapes, and naked strolls through campus! 5/5!   

Excitin’ times in the horror community, and we hope to make it even more excitin’ in time for All Hallow’s Eve with our epic season finale we’ve been buildin’ up to for the past year. There’s been lots of hurdles and sacrifices here and there to see this season through, but we made it through with sweat, determination, and unwaverin’ perseverance. We’re still workin’ on the animation for the finale and workin’ as fast as we can to get it out no later than Halloween night without sacrificin’ the quality of the episode. Every episode this season’s been a big episode, but this is the biggest yet with several fights, scenes of massive destruction, multiple scene changes, and all your favorite characters crammed in for one last cameo before we wrap up this crossover we’ve been so lucky to share with Full Moon and Charles Band.

Before then, we ‘re makin’ a special appearance tonight as guests on Alchemy Comedy’s Local Legends night and share behind the scenes stories about Screaming Soup! while a talented bunch of improv comics riff on what we talk about. We’ll be recordin’ the event and (fangs crossed) have it up for y’all to enjoy before Halloween with as little editin’ as that’ll require.

SCREAMING AT HORROR ADDICTS CROSSOVER!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! It’s officially October now, and everyone and everything to do with horror is kickin’ into high gear for the spookiest part of the year. Young’ns are huntin’ for the scariest costumes, creepers are turnin’ their homes into death shrines, and folks are lookin’ to us horror hosts to tell them what terror’s worth watchin’ in preparation for Halloween!

One such dedicated gang of reviewers are the Horror Addicts, a spooky family of horror enthusiasts on YouTube whose love for all things horror rivals our own! After we joked to them a while back about reviewin’ a kiddie monster flick called Goobers as part of their Full Moon reviews, they said they would if we join them, and voila! Instant Halloween crossover special! What’s even cooler is our collaboration is now a part of their Shocktober Challenge which dares folks to review a horror movie a day with a few rules dictatin’ the number of sub-genres, directors, etc. to cover. Pretty sweet, huh? Watch the new crossover below, and check out the rest of their reviews on their YouTube page HERE.

In other news, we are working as fast as we can to get the season finale done in time for Halloween. It’s takin’ a little longer than usual, because this is goin’ to be a BIG episode with a lot of fighting, explosions, review of the Toxic Avenger movies, and clues for what to expect next season. You won’ be disappointed, and we’ll keep you posted on any delays we could run into. We also got word we’ve been approved for some discussion panels at Big Fandom Greenville in November which will be fun with all the dirty stupid topics we pitched to jabber jaw about. Sexiest moments in horror and bad b-movie beasts is all we’ll let slip for now. Screaming Soup! will also be makin’ a special appearance at Alchemy Comedy on Friday the 13th, where we’ll share some stories with an improv group who’ll riff on everythin’ we say for fun. Plannin’ on gettin’ that recorded and uploaded’ before Halloween, fangs crossed.

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 MADWORLD!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Wow, this has been one exciting week as our show picks up steam, and the best holiday of the year rolls into its first full week. To kick it off right, we took a break from the craziness of the Full Moon/Troma war and accepted an invitation to a pretty impressive haunt that’s been buildin’ its own fanbase with bigger badder scares this Halloween.

If you’re anywhere near Madworld Haunted Attraction in Piedmont, SC, give yourself a treat and check it out! This place is built like a miniature theme park that offers differin’ levels of spooky entertainment for the whole family. Durin’ the day, young’ns can enjoy friendly hay mazes, tractor train rides, and pumpkin pickin’. But when night falls, scaredy cats can party to music around a bon fire with food trucks and free roamin’ ghouls while the brave get herded through a half mile of haunted hotels, asylums, swamps, farms, sewers, gas stations, and specialty rooms overrun by all manner of freaks and weirdos!

Madworld’s also introducin’ a cool new idea this year that’s sure to catch on with other haunts like wildfire. For the kiddies or oversized ‘fraidy cats, after payin’ the admission price to be scared, you can pay an additional $5 to scare the monsters! Awesome, right? Anyone wearin’ an specially branded LED necklace has the power to chase away any creatures they find too frightentin’ durin’ the haunt and even on the grounds when chillin’ out by the bon fire to eat their grub in peace. We wonder if that works on ass clowns and toxic mutants too?

Madworld is lots of fun, worth the deniro, and be sure to take a friend as a human shield!

In the meantime, be sure to catch up on all past Screaming Soup!

SCREAMING AT SEASON 4 UPDATES!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Been awhile since our last blog, but when you come down with a bad case of booger lips, it’s best to lay yourself to rest and do nothin’ for awhile. But we’re fully rested now with a few more horror movie reviews under our belt and jumpin’ back in the saddle to prepare the way for Screaming Soup! Season 4.

If you haven’t forgotten, we wrapped up season 3 with a pretty big promise to bring you the battle horror/sci-fi fans have wanted for decades – Troma vs Full Moon! We’ll be reviewing over 30 of your favorite mutant meltdown movies against your top alien flicks, bring back a lot of familiar faces with the magic of animation, and will even feature the involvement of the wizard from the west, Charles Band! Yessir, we reached out to the Full Moon legend himself for an official blessing over this endeavor of ours, and he was very excited by what he saw in the demo we showed him. With everything starting to come together, this will no doubt be our biggest season yet!

If you wanna get a jumpstart on everything there is to know about Troma or Full Moon before then, I’d suggest watching most of Troma’s films 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.

Other than that, be sure to watch our epic Season 3 finale with our review of the Basket Case trilogy while having our final showdown with Buzzkill, catch up on all past Screaming Soup!

SCREAMING AT HALLOWEEN ’16!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Halloween is finally here, but it feels late to its own party after a party filled weekend of bobbing for grenades, black cat tosses, and mummy rap offs. The most exciting thing we saw was a drunk penguin threatening to kill party guests for a complimentary t-shirt. Long story short . . . he got one! Following such a crazy few days, maybe the best way to close out the holiday is simply opening a cold one, throw back some hard earned candy, tune in to a tried and true horror favorite with friends and loved ones, and watch the final flicker of the remaining jack’o lanterns die out.

Or you can pull on a different costume, hit up the same houses for more candy, crash a party, and keep your fangs crosses one of them slutty cat girls will spend one of their nine lives with ya. If that’s the case, be safe, don’t blow your nose in the wind, check under the bed, and for Craven’s sake, make sure that’s who you think it is under that mask!

Other than that, be sure to watch our epic Season 3 finale with our review of the Basket Case trilogy while having our final showdown with Buzzkill, shoot someone one of our Halloween Eeeh!-Cards, catch up on Screaming Soup! Seasons 1-3, 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 HALLOWEEN WEEKEND!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! While we already had our Halloween blow-out with the duel of the afterlife, your spooky weekend is just beginning and sure to be full of mischievous fun guaranteed to haunt you the rest of your days. Cavity candies, slutty costumes, party prizes, ghoulish games . . . evil clowns. We’re sure you’ll have fun!

In the meantime, we’re gearing up for the weekend ourselves and moving fast to prep for Screaming Soup! Season 4 (premiering 1/20/17). We’re animating ’til our bones break and still in talks with key individuals for making sure Troma vs Full Moon is as epic as we can make it! But more about that later. For now, we’re poppin’ candy, double fistin’ a couple of cold ones, and chillin’ out to our favorite horror flicks and tunes while strategizing the best parties to go to the next few days.

We’re also happy to announce we’ll be attending our first convention next month, Big Fandom Greenville. We don’t have our dream booth built yet, so don’t get too excited, but we will be attending multiple panels, hosting discussions about various horror topics which include Screaming Soup! Looking forward to that and wrangling in several of the fine folk who make our show a success.

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

SCREAMING AT THE BASKET CASE TRILOGY!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks, and a happy early Halloween to ya as we bring our larger than afterlife season to its epic conclusion with a 36 minute finale! As you know, Buzzkill’s makin’ the Howl-Inn Grub and Spirits ground zero for his trap of a Halloween party meant to enslave the Crosslands, and it’s up to your favorite horror host gang to stop him. Everyone returns for one last appearance as the slime hits the fan and all walks of creature witness an unholy horror host feud end in a big top showdown.

To compliment such a celebration, we picked an equally monstrous film series to review, the Basket Case trilogy! We were fortunate enough to find these movies years ago on VHS when a video store was closing, and boy were we entertained by what has to be one of the most underrated monsters next to Maniac Cop! If you haven’t seen them, the movies follow these conjoined twins who were separated against their wishes, and now the normal looking brother carries his human meatball freak of a sibling in a wicker basket, struggling to find their place in the world while attacking haters. It’s absolutely one to check out, and even more fun to review so watch it below!

As for the sneak preview of next season you see in this review, we’ll come back to that later . . .

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!

SCREAMING AT MADWORLD AND HALLOWEEN SHOUT OUTS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Wow, this has been one exciting week as our show picks up steam, and the best holiday of the year rolls into its first full week. Our fan base is growing, we’re talking to some important people, and there’s about to be plenty of irons in the fire!

First off, we have to give a shout out to Madworld Haunted Attraction located in Piedmont, SC. We were invited to their early bird special recently and got an exclusive behind the scenes tour of their operation which did not fail to impress! Their place is built like a miniature theme park, first herding you through a haunted hotel and then spitting you out on a haunted trail that’s a half mile of asylums, swamps, farms, sewers, gas stations, and specialty rooms overrun by all manner of freaks and weirdos! And once it’s all over, you can hang in the picnic area near a bonfire watching videos projected above the snack shack like an old drive-in or to try your luck in one of their escape rooms fashioned after prisons and Egyptian tombs. Lots of fun, worth the deniro, and be sure to take a friend as a human shield!

We also want to give a special thank you to our friends at Bloodbath & Beyond who produced a special video this week spotlighting YouTube horror reviewers who they believe deserve more eyes. Lots of talent were mentioned, some familiar, some new, and we were very touched to be included with such fine folk in the horror community. We’re definitely checking out all the new channels this Halloween and thankful for the boost in our subscriptions.

Finally, we’ll hopefully have a new Tribute vid ready to go by 10/10/16 which will celebrate a popular Scream Queen we’ve been longtime fans of, and may even release a mini-preview of the Season 3 finale that same day. We’ve also been talking with some rather important people about Screaming Soup! Season 4 which is going to be fucking epic as you’ll see revealed in the season finale, 10/20/16. I wish I could say more, but I don’t want to give anything away too soon.

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!
