SCREAMING AT IN SEARCH OF DARKNESS PROMOS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! We’ve been busier than Crystal Lake undertakers ’round here and for good reason! After we spent last week remindin’ ya’ll ’bout In Search of Darkness, the definitive documentary on ’80s horror, the fine folks behind this highly anticipated factoid flick hit us up with a butt load of sneak peeks and promoted us from sideline cheerleaders to official promoters! Yessir, armed with a bunch of stills and video snippets of interviews with some of horror’s hottest talents, we eagerly got to work preppin’ it for public consumption like only the web’s #1 animated horror hosts can.

Obviously, we aren’t the only online talent contacted for generatin’ buzz ’round this project, so we knew we needed to stand out from the other promoters throwin’ this stuff up on their YouTube channels. Most uploaded the videos the exact same way they were delivered to them, some added an openin’ message explainin’ the documentary to their fans, and others mix different promos together in the same post to hook viewers with a one-stop vid that saves them the trouble of huntin’ for everythin’. We decided to be more interactive than that, and with the filmmakers’ blessin’, hacked the promos up for our own animated presentation that’s in a league of its own.

With the final push for the documentary’s IndieGoGo campaign endin’ next week, we had to be quick on our feet and think of a comedic formula that merged the interview clips with our show in a way we could promote the documentary while havin’ good hearted fun at the interviewee’s expense. After hurlin’ heaps of spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks, our first animated promos can be found below with us kickin’ our boots up to Jeffrey Combs and flippin hat over spurs for the beautiful Barbara Crampton. These will be followed by us hecklin’ more insightful conversations in the next day or so with Keith David, Joe Bob Briggs, and the Angry Video Game Nerd. Thanks again to the In Search of Darkness crew for allowin’ us to do this. Enjoy!

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 IN SEARCH OF DARKNESS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! While shyin’ away from all the mama drama stalker flicks definin’ 2019 as late, we’ve been hard at work creatin’ more content while findin’ new ways to network our show to a wider audience. One of these attempts was answerin’ an open call for interviews bein’ requested for an in depth factoid flick claimin’ to be the definitive ’80s documentary of horror, In Search of Darkness.

When we first saw the trailer advertisin’ this project’s Kickstarter last year, sweet sugar pumpkins, we were hooked! If this sample is a genuine taste of what’s to come, we’d be stupid to pass up the chance at bein’ part of somethin’ the horror community’s so enthusiastic ’bout, they gave the filmmakers nearly four times the budget they asked for to finish it! Packin’ in as much material as they can from ’80-’89, the filmmakers are coverin’ all the bases with commentary on horror’s significance to the VHS boom, its unforgettable poster art, and nods to movies as obscure as Xtro to mainstream hits like Friday the 13th. Obviously, there’s goin’ to be interviews, and this ambitious crew’s been proudly updatin’ their followers with a slew of interviews they scored with horror hall-o-fame directors, actors, effects wizards, and even a handful of today’s influencers like us.

Yup, famous online commentators on yesteryear’s horror like the Angry Video Game Nerd and GoodBadFlicks have been officially announced as part of the documentary’s line-up of talkin’ heads, and fangs crossed, we’ll be joinin’ them! After hittin’ up the documentary’s production company, CreatorVC Studios, for what to do, they fired us a list of burnin’ questions we answered in our own animated way. For y’all’s entertainment (’cause even if it’s accepted, there’s no chance it’ll all be used), enjoy our insightful and uncut interview we submitted to the fine people behind In Search of Darkness.

Now, while In Search of Darkness ain’t due for a few months, there’s still a lot you can gain by visitin’ their IndieGoGo page. Ya get all the gritty details for release dates and which talents’ faces they crammed with a camera, and find plenty of deals and opportunities for perks that include early bird digital releases, posters, t-shirts, and even producer credits.
