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!

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 GARBAGE PAIL KIDS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! In case you didn’t know, the ’80s was a major turning point for youngn’s entertainment. Not only was the toy market being driven by popular cartoons many criticized for being half hour commercials, but the wholesome family image began to slip, giving way to more gruesome forms of fun. There were crazy looking products of bizarre nature like Madballs, Real Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and most importantly . . . the Garbage Pail Kids!

In response to the Cabbage Patch Kids craze, Topps spoofed the cabbage cult with trading cards that mirrored the creepy dolls in horrifically twisted parodies and became a runaway success with the kiddies. Topps experienced popular responses to macabre cards before with their previous Mars Attacks! and Civil War News card sets back in the day, so they were more than familiar with what kind of dark images youngn’s wanted to see, and pumped out an ass load of them before petering out in the late ’80s.

Decades later, and we’re still enjoying these sick cards! The detailed art, the dark humor, the roster of unforgettable characters, and we still have lightning bolts of joy shoot through us every time we see new merchandise hit the shelves that’s 30 years overdue. And speaking of overdue, nothing was more so than the canceled Garbage Pail Kids cartoon series!

You read right. The same year the less than favorable GPK movie was released, CBS produced a Garbage Pail Kids cartoon series. Before the show could air on its first TV, however, the angry parents of yesteryear believed it would be every bit as despicable as the cards and convinced the CBS execs to give it the axe. Since then, it’s been locked away until receiving a second chance on DVD in the mid-2000s. Like a secret blast from the past, this shamed series is now up for grabs for all GPK fans such as ourselves, and we give it a look in the vid below to see just what all the fuss was about back then. Hope you enjoy it!

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 A BLOODBATH & BEYOND CROSSOVER!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Grab an extra dish, ’cause yer gettin’ served up not 1 but 2 reviews of The Stuff! Wipe that confused look off yer face, we ain’t backtracking our own review for a 2nd go ’round. No, sir. We’ve been in talks with the fine folks over at Bloodbath & Beyond, and before you know it, one thing led to another and Wooowee! We got ourselves a bona fide crossover of unprecedented mayhem!

Being the web’s first and only animated horror hosts means a lot of firsts, and this is one of them. Never before have live action horror hosts mixed with fully animated ones, and the result is laugh out loud epic. So epic, this crossover could only be done as a 2-parter with both sets of hosts visiting each other’s sets. Both parts are below, and we would suggest starting with the Screaming Soup! half as part 1, so you get a full understandin’ of what’s happenin’ before switching over to BBB’s half of the crossover.

We give a joyful YEEEHAAAAW! to Bloodbath & Beyond for decidin’ to take this steer by the horns and help make a memorable video we’re sure ya’ll will enjoy. We encourage you to check out more of their vids on their Youtube channel HERE, but come back to us for more helpings 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 WEREWOLVES AND CAMEOS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Woo-doggy, have you got it made this week with a double scoop of goodies! Not only are we premiering another tribute video for your horrific pleasure, but you also get some more animated mayhem as we make a guest appearance on Grim Reaper’s “Your Final Answer!”

Tackling the first tribute video to follow the Bruce Campbell shout-out we put together last Halloween, we realized these vids didn’t have to be spotlighting horror celebrities every time and could be about anything we think deserved attention. Jump scares, screams, rubber bats, whatever! With that said, we skipped purchasing someone’s entire film career for creating the coolest montage of their life in movies, and decided to celebrate werewolf transformations instead. Yessir, we went through our whole collection of monster movies and pieced together every super morphing,  hair sprouting, gore-tastic scene of man becoming beats we could find and pieced it all together in one Ramones jamming vid. You can check it out below and if you want to know where the clips came from, you can check out the movies on the vid’s page HERE.

In other news, Grim Reaper asked us to stop by and make another legendary appearance on his show “Your Final Answer,” and we hopefully don’t disappoint. That guest spot can also be seen below, and be sure to visit Reaper’s website (paradeofhorrorables.com), and subscribe to his Youtube page!!

SCREAMING AT GODZILLA THE SERIES

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! So, I think there’s 2 kinds of horror fans in this world. Those who are fans of Godzilla and those who are die-hard fanatics of Godzilla. For instance, if you were the average horror lover who went to see America’s take on the G-man in 1998, you probably walked out of the theater thinking you got your buck’s worth of man vs monster runamuck entertainment. If you were a super fan of Godzilla, you probably tore the theater apart before running out and warning people away from a false god’s promises.

I personally like the ’98 movie, but guess what . . . I like killer tomato movies, so you know you have to take what I say with a spoonful of ketchup! Was it the greatest movie ever? Could my judgment be clouded by fond memories I have of other things happening at about that time? Am I even talking about the right film? No, sure, and most definitely. I like Godzilla, but I couldn’t name every movie or villain blindfolded, meaning I’m not one of the diehards. But as a stand alone film without comparing it to its lineage, I thought the US version was a solid 3/5 for sure.

It had a mega monster clawing through the Big Apple, a killer soundtrack I rank in my top 5, and spun a pretty cool cartoon series that is sure to impress even the harshest Godzilla critics. That’s right, this box-office bomb managed to spawn an animated series before its demise at the hands of the fans and critics, and picks the story right up with Matthew Broderick’s character discovering one surviving baby of Zilla’s, who he takes under his wing to battle every critter the size of a building. Great art, strong characters, and plenty of monster bashing, watch our newest entry in our Re-Animated Review series below, and give the show a chance.

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 BUMP IN THE NIGHT!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Woowee! We’ve been happier than a hellhound with a chew soul after all the exciting horror updates we’ve been hearing about this week. Bill Murray is now confirmed to be making a cameo in the new Ghostbusters set for 2016, shooting has wrapped on the first season of the new Ash Vs The Evil Dead TV series, a second Beetlejuice movie is on the horizon with Michael Keaton returning, and Friday the 13th will be returning to television on the CW and with Jason Voorhees this time! How has our head not exploded yet?

So, once again it’s time for us to turn our attention to a more childish side of horror and look at some good ol’ fashion cartoons with what we call Re-Animated Review. This time around, we look at a short lived but memorable stop-motion show called “Bump in the Night.” We fondly remember seeing this air on the ABC network when they were still playing Saturday morning cartoons and it hasn’t lost any appeal after all these years. Check out the review below and relive your monster filled childhood!

SCREAMING AT CONVENTIONS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! As Jack Frost loosens his icy grip on us, we prepare for what’s sure to be a fun and exciting season. Now, check the boogey board and sunscreen there, I’m talking about the season of conventions! Yessir, like pop culture weeds popping up all over the world, now is the time for clicks of special individuals to come together and celebrate their favorite forms of entertainment in every way imaginable . . . and unimaginable! This is the key time for fans of cartoons, larping, ponies, video games, and comics to realize they’re not alone in their obsession and add numbers to rapidly growing cults.

We of course have plans for Screaming Soup! hitting the convention circuit in the near future, but we want to make sure we have plenty of content to share before throwing ourselves at the feet of the public for love and acceptance as the future of horror hosting. That’s not to say we’re not doing our homework, however! We’ve been walking the beat and gett’n an eyeful of plenty of hungry up and coming acts trying to get the word out about themselves. Sadly, some of these people don’t know the first thing about selling themselves or their ideas. We’ve approached talents with all the interest one could muster for hearing their story, but they would fumble horribly with indifferent reactions, mumbling, and describing their works in the most broad and boring ways possible! Believe in your work and convince me it’s worth buying, numb nuts! Don’t hide quietly behind the table and think your art is enough to speak on its own. Stand up, smile, and interact for fuck’s sake!

With that being said, here’s some creative people we’ve run into who’ve done just that and have some exemplary work we feel the whole world should be made aware of; Noel Saabye, J.R. Mounts, Aaron Hazouri, Michael Gordon, Neil Lee Griffin, and Ethan and Rachel Mongin.

Other than that, be sure to catch up on all the latest Screaming Soup! episodes so far for season 2 and watch for an all new Graphic Violence review coming in the next 1-2 weeks.

SCREAMING AT MONSTER FORCE!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! The year just started, but it already feels like it’s blowing by in a hurry. Or at least that’s how it feels for us given the crazy schedule we’ve committed to for holding the title as the web’s #1 animated horror host site!

This week we revisit our childhoods and take a fond look back at a forgotten animated reincarnation of the classic Universal monsters. For those who don’t know, there was once a short lived Saturday morning cartoon called “Monster Force” and it kicked ass! It’s like the Real Ghostbusters, M.A.S.K., and G.I.Joe were rolled into one and pitted against the undying icons of original terror. It’s everything “Monster Squad” and “Van Helsing” should have been. Check it out in this latest Re-Animated Review below and see for yourself!

In other news, be expecting the newest Screaming Soup! episode 2/20/15, and be on the look out for new Screaming Soup! Eeeh!-Cards for the upcoming holidays in our Extra section of the site.
