SCREAMING AT PUPPET MASTER 7-12!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! You’ve been patiently chompin’ at the bit since we left the web’s #1 animated horror hosts at the mercy of Full Moon’s Puppet Master gang last month, but the wait is OVER! Now, we pick things back up with our ghastly heroes wrangled and hogtied by Andre Toulon’s killer splinters like a bunch of sheep and continue our first ever Ultra review with the rest of the Puppet Master flicks; Retro Puppet Master, Puppet Master Legacy, Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys, PM: Axis of Evil, PM: Axis Rising, and yes . . . even PM: Axis Termination!!!

A special thanks goes out to Full Moon’s stellar team who were kind enough to give us an exclusive first look at the newest Puppet Master film. Their kindness and fun spirit has been such a pleasure to work with and their shared enthusiasm for this crazy cartoon crossover has been fantastic. They especially loved this particular episode, and we’re sure you Puppet Master fans will too, ’cause this makes up for any lack of puppet action you may have been hopin’ for last episode. We truly have an all out fight with these tiny terrors, and even other familiar faces turn up to stir some trouble. Hard to believe next month is the final chapter that wraps all this chaos up!

Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the Dollman so you can win this month’s random Full Moon DVD with a piece of original Screaming Soup! artwork. For those who don’t know how the game works,  look below for the rules and join the revered ranks of past winners who were first to tell us they spotted Full Moon’s 13″ cop with an attitude! Click HERE to see what past winners have received. This month’s winner is Buddy Smith from Arlington Heights, IL.

SCREAMING AT PUPPET MASTER 1-6!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Lock the doors and hurl your phones out the window, ’cause you ain’t gonna wanna be disturbed while watchin’ the next excitin’ entry in (indie film company not wantin’ free publicity) vs Full Moon! Yessir, after seven months of nail-bitin’ anxiety, we are proud to finally present the fellas you’ve been waitin’ for since the beginnin’ of this fantasy brawl . . . Andre Toulon’s puppets from Full Moon’s Puppet Master series!

Believe it or not, this is a series we’ve been wantin’ to review the most since startin’ Screaming Soup! Watchin’ so many horror hosts and YouTube reviewers over the years, we’ve seen different ones touch upon a few of the more popular Puppet Master flicks but never dig in with a fully comprehensive look at the entire series. That’s why we’re crankin’ things from 10 to 11 with a two-part ULTRA review that’ll chew the fat on EVERY Puppet Master flick made, includin’ (fangs crossed) Puppet Master Axis Termination! We’ll try for Puppet Master: Littlest Reich as well, but that’ll be tougher to get our hands on in time since another film company is makin’ it.

In the meantime, kick your feet up, enjoy some animated mayhem, and keep an eye out for the Dollman so you can win this month’s random Full Moon DVD with a piece of original Screaming Soup! artwork. For those who don’t know how the game works,  look below for the rules and join the revered ranks of past winners who were first to tell us they spotted Full Moon’s 13″ cop with an attitude!

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 NEWS AND UPDATES!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! New month, and the epic conclusion to the greatest battle to never happen draws closer with only 3 episodes left. Last episode left off with the tease for the final showdown between Troma and Full Moon, and we’re sure you’ve been rackin’ your brains figurin’ out which B-movie beasts will be tearin’ each other apart. Well . . . some of you have already figured it out, but we’ll clue the rest of you in.

As teased and promised for a while now, Full Moon’s Puppet Master gang will finally be makin’ their debut in this war to end all indie cinema. We’ll explain where they and the rest of Full Moon’s dolls have been this whole time, reveal Troma’s toxic picks for fightin’ them, and review the first six Puppet Master flicks in our first ever Ultra Edition of Screaming Soup! Yup, for those keepin’ track, Super Screaming Soup! is three reviews, Mega Screaming Soup! is four to five, and Ultra is six or more. And in the Puppet Master series’ case, it’s A LOT more with the rest of the series (includin’ Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys and hopefully the newest one(s)) scheduled for a review 9/20/17. That should certainly make up for their absence, huh?

In other news, we’ve just been contacted by Beta Max TV, and the Roku channel we were proud to call home for a few months is currently in the works for returnin’ to the airwaves! They originally tanked because of some messy technical difficulties, but Beta Max TV has climbed back in the saddle and plans on a revival of sorts with Beta Max TV 2.0. We’re first to jump in line and get our show back into the channel’s line-up and will hopefully be joined by our ol’ Beta Max buddies like Cinema Snob and The Mummy and the Monkey.

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!

18 DAYS, SCREAM FREAKS!!!

SCREAMING AT CHRISTMAS HORROR FILMS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Christmas is closing in on us once again, but it’s okay, because everyone’s been preparing for it since September! And while there’s those snuggled in their eyesore homes, eagerly waiting for their annual holiday viewing of the Grinch or Elf, we know you’re spikin’ that ‘nog and poppin’ in something a little scarier. From killer Santas to mutant snowmen, plenty of Christmas lores have been twisted into some form of sick horror entertainment, and we’ve seen our fair share of it!

In the spirit of a Christmas to dismember, we decided to share with you a small list of Christmas horror movies we think are worth your time as you count down the nights ’til you can rip those gifts out from under that tree. They have strong Christmas themes in them from the killers to the music and settings, just enough to keep you in the spirit of the season . . .

z01JACK FROST (1996)

Not the young’ns’ version with Michael Keaton resurrected as a friendly snowman, but the adult version with a fugitive serial killer transformed into living snow like a comic book villain. Known for its scene with him raping Shannon Elizabeth in the shower with his carrot nose! 4/5!

 

z02ELVES (1989)

TV’s Grizzly Adams plays a mall Santa fighting Nazis and their elaborate plans for world domination with a killer rubber elf. 3/5!  

 

 

z09SANTA’S SLAY (2005)

Wrestling’s Goldberg gives his greatest performance as a Krampus-like Santa who tears through a small town in search of the angel who cursed him to deliver gifts to good youngn’s for a millennia. Nothing but sick Christmas fun here with great characters, hell deer, strip clubs, stop-motion flashbacks, and over the top kills with one of the best opening scenes you’ll ever see! 5/5!

z11KRAMPUS (2015)

The best Krampus movie by-far, this hits all the right notes from the humor to the fear,  giving off a very Spielberg vibe. Great story, loveable cast, awesome monsters, disturbing scenes . . . we think Krampus looks too much like a deformed wizard but eh – can’t have everything we guess! 5/5!

 

z03BLACK CHRISTMAS (2006)

The original Black Christmas was creepier with its unexplained killer, but we enjoy this remake because it treats the killer like a Batman villain with his discolored skin, fucked up origin story, and escape from an insane asylum. Doesn’t hurt there’s plenty of eye candy as well, like Katie Cassidy and Michelle Trachtenberg. 4/5! 

 

z06SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT 5: THE TOY MAKER (1991)

This film only made our list because of how unexpected it is at times, searing bizarre images in our brain we’ll never forget. A toy maker and his son are terrorizing families with killer toys, and one particular family becomes their target because they’re living in their old house they lost due to hard times. Most memorable scene is when one particular toy tries bangin’ the mom toward the end. 3/5!

z08GREMLINS (1984)

Do I really need to explain this one? A son gets a magic critter for Christmas that accidentally spawns nastier critters that run amok, ruining everyone’s Christmas in a small town. 5/5!

 

z07SILENT NIGHT (2012)

A reboot for the Silent Night Deadly Night series, this version focuses on a hot cop looking for a killer Santa in a festival of St. Nicks. Good actors, slick cinematography, and Malcolm McDowell spits lines worthy of t-shirts and fridge magnets. 4/5!

 

z10PUPPET MASTER VS DEMONIC TOYS (2004)

In a moment of weakness, Full Moon let the Sci-fi Channel play with their toys and this guilty pleasure happened. It’s a suck-ass Puppet Master sequel but a fun Demonic Toys story with them trying to take over the world Christmas Day unless the puppets can stop them with new robot upgrades. 3/5!  

 

z04SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT (1984)

Our favorite Christmas horror film, we watch this every Christmas Eve before hitting the dirt! It’s ’80s, it’s vicious, it tells the story from the killer’s point of view, and you get Scream Queen Linnea Quigley killed topless! Win win! 5/5!

 

And there you have it. Our favorite holiday horrors to roast your chestnuts over. While they’re not at the very top of our favorites list, we will mention other Christmas horror films worth watching for your sick pleasure like Don’t Open ’til Christmas, Black Christmas (1974), Santa Clause Conquers the Martians, All Through the House, Scrooged, Christmas Horror Story, Santa Klaws, Maniac Cop 2, and Rare Exports. And if you’re really digging deep for more yuletide punishment, I’ll give you fair warning to avoid flops like Silent Night Deadly Night 3-4, Blood Beat, Silent Night Bloody Night, and Krampus 1-2 (2013 & 2016).

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 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.

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!
