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! 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.

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 YOUTUBE VS HORROR!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! In case you haven’t heard, YouTube’s been upsettin’ a lot of channel creators the past year or so thanks to changes in its advertisin’ policies. Folks lucky enough to make some deniro runnin’ ads on their content suddenly found the well runnin’ dry after their videos were deemed unsuitable for advertisers’ vanilla comfort. One particular genre of channels that seems to be hit the hardest by this bad taste cleansin’ is horror.

We first heard about these purgin’ waves around a year ago on ComicBookGirl19’s video “Is this the end of the Comic Book Girl 19 Show? #YouTubeIsOver Explained.” In a nutshell, YouTube makes its money from the same ads its channels profit from when content creators choose to monetize their vids for a buck. Didn’t matter what the video was about – cats teachin’ bumblin’ babies life hacks for reviewin’ the sexual subtext in Pride & Prejudice and Zombies or backyard stunt dawgs spreadin’ hate propaganda to sexually abused blow-up dolls in a kiddie pool of peanut butter – the creators could check the box that allowed them to earn some pocket change off any random business’ openin’ commercial. Seems one such business caught their ad on one of the harsher videos and blew their shit thinkin’ everyone who clicks to skip their commercial are gonna think they support whatever sick content the viewers obviously came to enjoy. They threatened to break ties with YouTube (potentially startin’ a chain reaction of other nervous businesses jumpin’ ship), YouTube panicked, and now videos have to be squeaky clean to benefit from monetization which keeps the cash cows happy and YouTube’s banks full.

Accordin’ to the folks I’ve been watchin’, the unsuitable content YouTube’s lookin’ to cut off is pretty much anything violent, sexual, vulgar, and graphic . . . all the things we love about horror! A few of our friends in the horror community have felt the squeeze the last few months and have been none too happy about it. Blood Bath & Beyond was one of the last big ones we heard was hit, but recently the Horror Addicts got the bad news with several of their vids bein’ demonetized. They published a perfect reaction video to all this you can watch below and are rallyin’ fellow horror fans to #KeepYouTubeCreepy.

Just so you Scream Freaks out there know, this stuff with YouTube ain’t gonna hurt or stop Screaming Soup! YouTube’s not dumpin’ entire channels like they never existed, they’re just cuttin’ certain channels off from the revenue their vids generate. We haven’t been hit with this yet, but that might be because we didn’t monetize Season 4 as part of an agreement we made with Full Moon and Troma (in the beginnin’) since we’re workin’ with their characters this year. Screaming Soup! is a labor of love, and a means for us to celebrate everythin’ we love about horror with you Scream Freaks, connect with our heroes in the genre, be artists in every sense of the word, and make waves in the horror host community we’re hopin’ will one day catapult us alongside such heavy weights as Elvira and the Crypt Keeper.

Money is important, but it’s not what drives our show. It is a goal of ours to make Screaming Soup! successful enough to be a sustainable career, but our primary focus is creatin’ great shows that tell wild stories, share candid reviews, and makes you laugh above all else. We’re sure fame and fortune will come when it comes, but we ain’t gonna let it steer our creativity.

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 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 GHOULS’ NIGHT OUT!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! We’ve got quite a treat planned for you this week as the dark cosmos aligns and brings together 3 of horror entertainment’s favorite gals. Streamin’ LIVE this Saturday night (7/15/17) at 8pm PST on the Horror Addicts’ YouTube channel (click HERE to book mark it), hostess Gory B. Movie invites the Homicidal Homemaker and our very own ghost girlfriend Mandy to cook up trouble and discuss our shows while drinkin’ some deadly concoctions.

For those unfamiliar with these gore gore girls, Horror Addicts is a family themed show created by Gory and her husband Danny Knightmare. No strangers to the horror community, they network with a lot of today’s online talents, includin’ yours truly with a guest appearance in our episode Deadwest Screams at Frankenhooker! and even guest hosted a review on Bloodbath & Beyond’s YouTube channel. Their vids normally range from movie reviews to unboxin’s, and of course, Ghouls’ Night Out which features an impressive roster of women who know their Frankensteins from their Frankenstein’s monsters. With past guests on Ghouls’ Night Out includin’ Spooky Astronaut, Lady Hellbat of The Batcave, and Horrorgal, we’re proud to be counted among such frightful fun.

Sharin’ the night with Mandy will be Kaci Hansen, another horror hostess better known as the Homicidal Homemaker. But rather than review trashy movies, she serves up appetizin’ dishes inspired by them in a horror themed cookin’ show! Whether it’s Halloween or a poltergeist party, the Homicidal Homemaker offers several easy to follow recipes that make for some screamin’ displays of culinary goodness. She’ll teach you to mix a Twin Peaks cocktail, make bloody custard ears from Dead Alive, or whip up some macaroni brain salad to satisfy your horrendous hunger.  Even if your not a cook lookin’ for new ideas in the kitchen, Homemaker kicks up her show’s entertainment value with impressive parody skits (our favorite is the pool party) along with additional unboxin’ vids and food reviews. You can check out her YouTube channel HERE. Rumor has it the girls are askin’ Homemaker to think up some new poison for them to drink Saturday night, and it’s sure to be sinfully sweet.

As for our favorite ghostly girlfriend, Mandy will be takin’ a break from the disastrous war that’s been upsettin’ things around here and kickin’ back at the Howl-Inn for this shin-dig. She’ll be talkin’ about Screaming Soup! teamin’ up with Full Moon, tease at things to come in our next episode on 7/20/17, and may even share a picture that helps you freaks see who’s fillin’ that dress! You should also know this live stream will have a chat room for fans to talk to each other and the girls. So, any burnin’ questions you have can be answered on air or in the chat room by Mandy. Other members of Screaming Soup! will be in the chat room on and off durin’ the stream if you wanna ask them any questions.

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 THE 4TH OF JULY 2017!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Woo-doggy, we’ve had some fireworks ‘roud here, and it’s far from over as the epic battle between your favorite independent film companies continues. T####’s pissed at Screaming Soup!, Full Moon’s up to some secret means of escapin’ the Crosslands, and all hell’s breakin’ loose as Gingerdead Man instigates a bar brawl between Killjoy and some Cretins that can tip the delicate truce back into full scale war! Things have been so hectic, we didn’t even have time to touch base with you folks last week!

To catch you up on what’s been goin’ on lately, we still have a lot of irons in the fire as this season draws closer to bein’ wrapped up. We’re poised for our 5th apocalyptic season we’re excited to get started on, preppin’ Season 6 well in advance, and doin’ our best to catch up the secondary vids we promised like Graphic Violence and Re-Animated Reviews. We want to review the Toxic Crusaders cartoon and tell y’all about all the comics based on Toxie, Puppet Master, and Re-Animator. The scripts have been written, and the comics have been scanned for those, but we’re in the thick of editin’ the last 20 reviews together which is gonna have to delay those a little longer. With a big honcho like Full Moon involved this season, you’ll understand why we’re puttin’ all our energy into these episodes for the time bein’!

We’re also busy spreadin’ the word about our show to help grow our fanbase. We’re reachin’ out to other streamin’ services needin’ programs, applyin’ for panel discussions at Big Fandom again, and contactin’ popular horror publications that might want to write an article about the world’s first fully animated horror host show. In addition, we’re plannin’ certain crossovers that won’t interrupt our production schedule and have a couple lined up with the Horror Addicts. As of now, our favorite ghost girlfriend Mandy is supposed to make a guest appearance on B. Gory’s “Ghoul’s Night Out” livestream this month, and Deadwest and Billy will be in a crossover review with Danny Knightmare talkin’ ’bout Full Moon’s Goobers sometime in October. Promises to be fun, and we’ll keep you up to date on those as they happen. And we’re excited to announce we’ll be featurin’ Pretty Weird Art’s Death Elf and Woose in some episodes next season. We interviewed the creators behind this cool independent comic a couple years back in our Graphic Headstone blog and are thrilled to have the chance to bring their creations to life like we did with Michael Gordon’s Tiki Zombie in our Pinata Survivor Island review!

And before we go, just a heads up to you regulars that we dumped a lot of new reviews into the R-Rated Review blog and finally updated the Sequential Slime blog with new comic we recently picked up. And in case you missed it, we’ve got some new Screaming Soup! art in the gallery that’s showcased below.

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 FRANKENHOOKER!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Hot off the heels of the successful Bloodbath & Beyond crossover, we present to you the newest and craziest chapter in the Buzzkill’s Revenge saga yet with your favorite gang of horror hosts reviewing the cult-hit, Frankenhooker!

We can still remember hearing rumors about this schlockbuster long ago, and how excited we were when we finally got to see it in all its shocking glory years later. Many filmmakers have given the Frankenstein story their own creative spin, but only Frank Henenlotter’s version about a crazed electrician re-animating his mowed down girlfriend with hooker body-parts has ever stood out enough to make us want to run and tell all our friends about it. Raunchy, gritty, and full of fun, every horror fan needs Frankenhooker in their collection.

We also have more horrific personalities making guest appearances in this episode and want to give a quick shout out to those folks. Jay from Bloodbath & Beyond is back along with our friend Grim Reaper from Your Final Answer, and we’re lucky enough to share the screen with the Horror Guru and the Horror Addicts who have been very cool to collaborate with. They’re all amazing talents in horror entertainment, so please click their links below to check out their Youtube channels, but make sure to come back here for more servings of Screaming Soup!

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 UPCOMING CROSSOVERS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! We can already tell ya, this is going to be a fun month for Screaming Soup! Not only are we going to bring you our favorite review of Season 3 on 6/20/16, but we’re also playing host to several macabre guests we’ve asked to join us for some crossover antics!

We don’t want to spoil the surprise for who these guests are just yet, but the majority of them are other popular horror movie reviewers you more than likely heard of, and they’ll be making cameos in the next episode which takes our gang to the Tailhouse — the Crosslands #1 stripjoint! We push the animation further, give ya plenty of cartoon babes to oogle, review one of the best B-movies of all time, and share the screen with some of the hottest talents in the business. It’s going to be unforgettable.

In the meantime, we are ready to tell you we’ve been hard at work on a crossover special with another team of superstars . . . Bloodbath & Beyond! Yessir, we’ve been talking a lot with these guys lately, and we both came to the obvious conclusion we needed to do a crossover. Live action meets animation, its a true clash of worlds as we step outside our norms, attempting something we’ve never done before. I won’t say how we crossover or what we’re going to review, but it’ll be like a 2-parter with fans needing to watch vids on both our Youtube channels to get the full story. We’re aiming to release that by Friday, 6/10/16.

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!
