SCREAMING AT HORROR COMICS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! As you would have guessed it, things have been busy ’round our parts, and we’re hurryin’ as fast as we can to bring you the next excitin’ episode of Screaming Soup! Until then, there’s been plenty goin’ on behind the scenes we can’t wait to share with ya!

For starters, we can officially say we got one of the alternate covers for Full Moon Comix’ Dollman Kills the Full Moon Universe #3 due out ’round October! Yeehaw, that achievement feels real good, if we say so ourselves, and we can’t wait for y’all to see it along with the rest our work we did for them! For those of y’all keepin’ track, we got a page of art in the first and second issue, and now we’re one of the cover options for the third issue. So, if Dollman blowin’ up all your favorite Full Moon characters wasn’t enough incentive to buy the series already, now you know you’ll also be collectin’ artwork in these historic issues by us here at Screaming Soup!

All this excitement has definitely lit a fire under our asses to make more headway with our plans for a Screaming Soup! comic we mentioned a while back. It’s currently planned to be a four issue mini-series and will be a prequel that shares a few of our adventures in the Crosslands before settlin’ down at the Howl-Inn Grub and Spirits. We already have the plots figured out and started draftin’ page layouts which we just finished for the first issue. This goes against normal practice somewhat, but we’re gonna complete all four issues before hittin’ up potential publishers we have in mind for printin’ this series. We’re gonna make sure every issue is packed with humor, action, monsters, and content not already found in the show.

And while we’re on the topic of horror comics, be sure to swing by our latest reviews of what we’re readin’ on our Sequential Slime blog. There’s a lot of good horror movie tie-in comics hittin’ the racks right now, and we give ya our two cents on most of them issue by issue. We bitch ’bout the Army of Darkness/KISS crossover rehashin’ Raimi’s third Evil Dead flick for the umpteenth time, praise the latest Big Trouble in Little China mini-series, ride the fence on the brand spankin’ new books on Pumpkinhead and Jeepers Creepers, and fall into abysmal disappointment over Robocop’s latest storyline. Despite great artwork, it always comes down to story determinin’ how well these comics are received or not.

Before we forget, let us mention to ya we think the El Rey Network may have finally watched our Screaming Soup! submission for their animated edition of the People’s Network. We haven’t been officially notified or anythin’ yet, but we saw the YouTube views on that private video jumped a little which is GREAT, ’cause that means someone watched it at least three times. Fangs crossed that means one judge watched it and liked it enough to promote it ’round the office over there or somethin’. And if that weren’t enough excitement to keep us on the edge of our bar stool, we were remindin’ folks in a tweet ’bout our excitement over the return of legendary horror host Joe Bob Briggs on Shudder, and a fan replied with interest in seein’ the two of us in some kind of crossover. We fired back we have a script written for such a horrific ocassion, and Joe Bob directly hit us up wantin’ to read it! Toxic taco toadies, can you imagine the sonic boom thunderin’ ‘cross the lands from our heads explodin’ if somethin’ so surreal were to happen as Joe Bob Briggs doin’ a crossover with our show?!! Breath . . .

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!

For all you fearmakers out there workin’ on your next scary feature, remember to shoot it our way as an entry in our Scream Freak Film Contest! Three winners will be reviewed in our 50th episode and promoted to all the Scream Freaks lookin’ for the next big thing Hollywood’s too scared to capitalize on. Deadline’s 8/20/18, so hurry!

SCREAMING AT HALLOWEEN 2018 AND FULL MOON COMIX!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! We’re happy to FINALLY find the time to touch base with ya and shoot the shit on what’s been happenin’ lately.

First off, the next episode is still truckin’ along and will be a doomsday machine double feature with our gang standin’ our ground ‘gainst the Iron Horsemen of Doom so they don’t get their mitts on Billy for all the worst reasons. It’s full of action, laughs, and we even grill some awful remakes.

Speakin’ of remakes, you see the new trailer for the 2018 Halloween? Really mixed feelin’s on our end. We’re excited ‘bout Jamie and Carpenter’s return to the franchise that made them legends, but at the same time, isn’t this story kind of like Halloween: H20 take two? We understand now why this movie was hard to peg as a sequel, remake, or reboot durin’ its news hype. It’s technically a sequel to the original ’78 Halloween, but it’s also rebootin’ the series while kind sorta remakin’ H20, Halloween 2, and ah hell, maybe even Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2. You followin’ this? What’s worst is that title. Halloween?! Did the filmmakers try outdoin’ Stallone’s system for namin’ Rambo movies or somethin’?! It was easy enough to separate the last remake from the original in conversations, because they were simply referred to as Halloween and Rob Zombie’s Halloween. Now, we gotta specify if we’re rantin’ ‘bout Halloween, Rob Zombie’s Halloween, or the 2018 Halloween ‘cause Carpenter ain’t enough clarification since he’s involved with the ’78 version and the newest one. This is getting’ as bad as Leatherface’s movies now with Halloween arguably havin’ as many as five timelines; Timeline 1) Halloween ’78 – Halloween: Resurrection, Timeline 2) Halloween ’78, Halloween: H20Halloween: Resurrection, Timeline 3) Halloween ’78 – Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, Timeline 4) Rob Zombie’s Halloween 1-2, and now Timeline 5) Halloween ’78 – Halloween 2018. And I’m not even gonna get into the alternate timelines in the Halloween comics over the years!

In other news, we haven’t heard a peep from the El Rey Network yet ‘bout our video submission to be featured in one of their animation showcases. Fangs crossed though, ‘cause we can see on our YouTube channel they haven’t watched the vid yet which means there’s still a chance we could be nationally broadcast right out of Robert Rodriguez’s ranch sometime in the near future. We’ve also been busy hittin’ Full Moon Empire up for more work on their new in-house comic, Dollman Kills the Full Moon Universe. Yup, we closed the deal on havin’ artwork in the first issue, and currently meetin’ some fast deadlines for squeezin’ more work into the second issue while gunnin’ to be one of the variant covers for issue three! This historic series is due to hit stands in comic shops ‘cross the country beginnin’ in August, so keep an eye out! As far as our own aspirations for a prequel comic to Screaming Soup!, we decided to expand it to a four issue limited series since most graphic novels are made of four or more comics. More work of course, but this is somethin’ we’re compelled to check off our bucket list.

Lastly, we returned to ConCarolinas recently. Sadly, we dropped the ball for getting’ on any panels and had to sit on the bench and hang our heads at every overlooked detail we felt the “professionals” failed to mention durin’ conversations ‘bout Godzilla and horror icons. Putrid polecats! One good thing that came of it, though, was meetin’ some indie filmmakers who seemed very enthusiastic when we mentioned them and their fellow cinephiles enterin’ our Scream Freak Film Contest. Can’t wait to see what they submit!

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

SCREAMING AT SPOT THAT HORROR HOST!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! We don’t have a lot of time, so we gotta make this quick.

First, hope you enjoyed the newest episode of Screaming Soup! as much as we did and checked out Homicidal Homemaker and the Mummy and the Monkey’s YouTube channels. Speakin’ of fellow horror hosts, you may have noticed several of your favorite ones hidden away in the background of this latest episode. We mentioned last week we might make a game out of it or somethin’, and that’s just what we did. Earlier this week, we posted a little challenge across our social media darin’ fans to hunt for these horrific personalities and tell us where they found them to unlock their animated avatars. Thanks to some Super Scream Freaks, they were all unlocked within three days, and are now available for download HERE. Save ’em, post ’em, make collage art out of ’em for your sick pleasure, and even though they’ve all been found, take a look at the chart below and see who you can spot in the episode.

In other news, we’re movin’ forward with our plans for submittin’ an episode of Screaming Soup! to the El Rey Network in the hopes they’ll play it durin’ one of their People’s Network presentations which gives filmmakers the chance to get their work seen by TV audiences ’round the world. To increase our chances of bein’ selected, we went ahead and cut out the movie review portion, leavin’ only an animated adventure that’s a bit hodge podged from past episodes to expose TV audiences to as much of our wild weird west as we can. We still talk about bein’ horror hosts, but just act as though the adventure’s one big build up with us fightin’ monstrous forces just to deliver the review. Should have this submitted over the weekend and will keep y’all posted on its progress for bringin’ us before the home viewin’ masses. Fangs crossed!

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 BLOOD DINER!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Ask and ye shall receive, partners! After a lot of hard but fun work, the episode you’ve been waitin’ for is here and firin’ on all pistons! Now, we’ll be honest, we feel our last episode reviewin’ Tusk could have been a little better. It got a little rushed toward the end to get it published within a month of the previous review and think it could have been funnier. That said, once we missed our monthly deadline for this episode, we didn’t sweat it as much and made the extra effort to make sure this review took full advantage of the humor and kicked the animation up a notch with the camerawork.

We’re also excited about this episode, ’cause if you scan the backgrounds you’ll see we plugged a bunch of our amigos in the horror community in addition to Homicidal Homemaker, Janet Decay, and Grimm Gorri’s special cameos. Yup, like a game of Where’s Waldo, you’ll find the Horror Addicts, our neighbors at Beta Max TV, Sluggo from The Vortexx, Bloodbath & Beyond, and more packed into the walls of the Howl-Inn! We’re thinkin’ we’ll maybe make this into a game so every horrorific entertainer you fans identify unlocks their Screaming Soup! cartoon versions to be enjoyed for whatever sick reasons you want them for.

Aside from all that, you’ll also see our gang’s made it back to the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits in one piece, but a lot of things have changed thanks to the return of that voodoo hexin’ rooster, Papa Kaka. What he’s up to and how it inspires our review of Jackie Kong’s Blood Diner ’bout two yahoos cookin’ up a sacrificial meal for usherin’ a monstrous goddess back to their world, you’ll just have to watch and find out! On a side note, if you’re a fan of Blood Diner, then you gotta hunt you down a copy of the director’s other monster romp no one ever talks about, The Being, which is ’bout a small town debatin’ its pollution problem while a one-eye burrowin’ puddle mutant tears through people like a bad case of the runs that bite!

And real quick for you Super Scream Freaks, we finally got the bios written up for this season’s newest characters and added them all to our growin’ roster of beasts and ghouls. Everythin’ you wanna know ’bout the apocalyptic bikers or the spooks from the last episode is just a click away on our BIOS page.

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 HURRYING UP ALREADY!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Another week and still waitin’ for the next episode. We tell ya, we don’t know how ya manage to be so patient! We’re comin’ much closer to wrappin’ up the animation of episode 43, and fangs crossed we’ll get it out to you sometime next week, and you’ll see why it’s worth the wait. Guest stars, larger than life monsters, non-stop action, and an all out review . . . no wonder it’s takin’ us a little more time to animate!

Regardin’ other projects, things are progressin’ nicely. We think we finally have a magazine publication that will feature an article on our show, we’ve completed some treatments for that mini-series we mentioned wantin’ to do for a Screaming Soup! comic, and got the first drafts for our seventh season written. And if you haven’t heard, our buddy Charlie at Full Moon Empire has decided to publish his own Full Moon comix startin’ with an awesome mini-series called Dollman Kills the Full Moon Universe. Pretty epic, right? And since we’re artists with a whole slew of Full Moon artwork from last season, we gotta see if we can twist some arms into squeezin’ our own masterpieces in these upcomin’ issues as pin-ups or back covers. We’ll regret it if we don’t try, you know?

And on a side note, we saw the latest animation showcase on Robert Rodríguezes’ El Rey Network and got more fired up than ever to submit a Screaming Soup! short for possible syndication. If you never heard of it, Robert asks filmmakers to submit their work to El Rey Network through his channel’s website, and the fans pick and choose their favorites to be featured in what they call the People’s Showcase. Winners are flown to his studio ranch in Texas and interviewed for TV spots that introduces their works as part of themed collections rangin’ from horror to suspense and animation. We have some ideas for what we’ll be submittin’, but more on that later.

Just a reminder our special guests on this next episode will be The Homicidal Homemaker and Janet Decay and Grim Gori from The Mummy and the Monkey Show. If you never heard of them, slap yourself upside your clueless face and catch up with their latest YouTube vids posted below. These horrific talents deserve mad fanfare, and we’re still pinchin’ ourselves they’re gonna be on our show!

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

SCREAMING AT ONE BIG EPISODE!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! This week, we think we finally gotta face facts and not be too hard on ourselves. For the first time in the history of our show, we might not get an episode out by our monthly deadline. How could somethin’ like this happen you ask? Well, most of you regular Scream Freaks who visit the site have kept up with our weekly work drama, but we’ll recap for the newbies.

When we first kicked off this animated rodeo, we were always a year ahead of what we were releasin’ to keep y’all fed with regular content on a monthly basis. While you were watchin’ episode 11, we were already animatin’ episode 21 while preparin’ the script and art for episode 31 at the same time. This routine of multitaskin’ worked liked clockwork for a talkin’ heads show with characters anchored to a table, but we got more ambitious over time and started lettin’ our ghoulish gang run wild through the Crosslands. Obviously, more action means  a lot more work animation-wise, and we dedicated many more hours designin’ and animatin’ new characters and places for them to wreak havoc in. Little bit at a time, this epic undertakin’ became more and more complicated and ate away at that year’s worth of cushion we had for any unforeseen circumstances and hiccups that might throw us behind schedule.

While our fanatic series of Bruce Campbell themed vids were the start of our schedule slips, that final fight in our Season Three finale took even more cushion away from us, and this past season with Full Moon Empire ate up the rest. Now, we’re animatin’ our episodes as we go and releasin’ them as soon as they’re done. To keep up the pace we’ve set for ourselves and meet the expectations we’ve given y’all, we’re spendin’ every second we can spare workin’ on Screaming Soup! and only want to produce a quality show that never fails to deliver comic book adventures, slapstick laughs, and insightful reviews of B-movies we think y’all should know about. It’s not like we’re paranoid y’all are gonna get riled up over this and bash us for bein’ late, but we just wanna let you know we’re always workin’ on the show and to bear with us. Never forget we’re folks doin’ this for no money while workin’ full time jobs and raisin’ families. So, the next episode with Homicidal Homemaker and the Mummy and the Monkey may be ridin’ in a little late, but we promise you it’s gonna be worth the wait, Scream Freaks!

To divert from all that melodrama, we want to thank Gori from the Horror Addicts for givin’ us this boner fan art below that now graces our fridge, and fellow horror hosts, The Angry Bros., for helpin’ scream the word around ’bout our show with an article spotlightin’ us as a true horror hostin’ gem everybody should check out. We appreciate it, partners, and encourage our fans to check out their article (HERE) as well as their YouTube channel (HERE). We also share our two cents on more horror comics that have come out recently in our Sequential Slime blog, and anyone who cares to hear us go voicebox to voicebox with a podcaster doin’ Sly Stallone impressions, be sure to visit our friends over at the Bearded Ones Podcast and give a listen at 8 minutes into their program. The judge is none other than our good buddy Jason Underwood who played Toxie this past season, and was the one who invited us to the showdown.

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

SCREAMING AT QUICKIE UPDATES!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Sorry we didn’t drop ya a line last week, but things are hustlin’ and bustlin’ over here so fast, our bones are rattlin’ apart from all the excitement! That’s why we only got enough time to throw ya a few updates and get back to producin’ the web’s best kept animated secret!

The next episode is underway and lookin’ excellent. We’ll be seein’ what happened to the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits since Papa Kaka took over which inspired us to whip up some spiffy new backgrounds for the Crossland’s favorite waterin’ hole that’s really pullin’ it together. What’s even more spooktacular are the guests who will be stoppin’ by, most notably our pal the Homicidal Homemaker and our Beta Max TV neighbors, Janet Decay and Grimm Gorri aka the Mummy and the Monkey! Both were more than happy to see themselves animated, and we’re flattered by their willingness to jump feet first into our cartoony chaos. If you need to freshen up on who these horrific talents are before then, check out Homicidal Homemaker’s YouTube channel HERE and Janet and Grimm’s YouTube channel HERE.

In the meantime, we’re writin’ the scripts for Screaming Soup! Season 7 right now, still on a wild goose chase for seein’ Death House, and think we got enough of an outline down for writin’ the first drafts of those Screaming Soup! comics we mentioned wantin’ to do in an earlier blog. We’re also makin’ plans for the next big voice recordin’ session for upcomin’ episodes of Screaming Soup! and had a crazy thought that might be somethin’ y’all would wanna see on our Twitch account? Just a wild hair of a thought, so let us know what you think.

On a side note, our buddy the Reaper or Mondoman from Your Final Answer/Mondopiece Theater/whatever really blew-up with his appearances this past week, so give him a look see and discover some other wacky channels after you watch his newest review of Maniac (not the good one with Tom Savini) on his YouTube channel.

SCREAMING AT TUSK!

Howdy there, and soup’s on, Scream Freaks! We were sweatin’ it there for a second, but we strapped oxygen masks to our faces while injectin’ caffeine straight into our veins with TV on the Radio blastin’ in our ears and cranked out another monthly adventure of your favorite animated horror host who’s still havin’ a hootenanny of a frightful time. This episode explores new corners of the Crosslands, introduces new yahoos causin’ trouble, and picks back up with those semi-mysterious bikers still after Billy.

The movie we’re reviewin’ is the first installment in Kevin Smith’s True North trilogy, and it’s one you won’t be forgettin’ anytime soon. Originally a bizarre joke on Kevin’s smodcast that ran away with itself, this Human Centipede lite torture flick masterfully brings back fears audiences felt watchin’ Misery but takes it a sick step further with senior slasher madmen turnin’ folks into their own emotional support animal. We know we might get some sass from y’all ’bout missin’ the mark with this episode bein’ a perfect setup for showcasin’ a supernatural spook thriller, but we want to talk about this instead, so . . . that’s that. We gotta be unpredictable to keep ya on your toes sometimes, you know?!

We also want to give a shout out to Kevin Smith. While cuttin’ this puppy together, the news broke less than a week ago he suffered a heart attack and nearly died. It was freaky when we found out, ’cause we had just watched the new Comic Book Men episode with Kevin gettin’ emotional watchin’ people act out a chapter of his life in the new bio-pic, Shooting Clerks. Ain’t that pretty surreal he almost expires at the same time folks are watchin’ him experience his past with bittersweet nostalgia? Kevin, if you’re readin’ this, Screaming Soup! is happy to still have such an amazin’ person among us and wish you and your family a speedy recovery. We hope our animated review of your flick brings you some laughs to help heal.

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

SCREAMING AT QUALITY OVER QUANTITY!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Hope y’all are well rested after that Creepy Channel Crawl last weekend. We can’t remember the last time we thought anything was important enough to stay up 24 hours for, but that was a fun and successful marathon . . . for most. Okay, some channels didn’t manage to meet YouTube’s new requirements for subs or viewin’ hours to monetize their vids, but we did come together as a horrortube community and forge some longlastin’ friendships that’ll be more magical than any ponies’. Want our advice for growin’ your fan base, visit your local cell phone or Apple store and start playin’ your show on every device you can get your claws on. Lots of views on multiple machines, and who knows what clueless customer or morally worn out employee might discover you and sub your channel before turnin’ it off for another round of Angry Birds. Don’t think we don’t do it!

Anyway, you may notice February is comin’ to a close, and we still haven’t gotten the next episode up. Don’t worry. It’s comin’, and we’re bustin’ our asses every free moment we get to beat the month with the fewest days out of the year! In case you haven’t heard, we used to have our episodes made a year in advance so mad dashes like this wouldn’t happen, but then we upped our animation game with high octane adventures with an army’s worth of characters that pushed production waaay back, costin’ us that cushion. We mean, we could have stuck with our gang yammerin’ at a table every episode like seasons one through two, but then we wouldn’t have our epic road trip from Buzzkill’s Revenge or that monster mash with Full Moon that was enough work to equal three of our regular seasons.

We think we’re gonna get episode 42 up by 2/28/18, but we can’t guarantee that as much as we hate to say it. We can if we slap somethin’ together in a hurry, but quality over quantity, Scream Freaks. Sounds like a lazy artist’s get out of jail free excuse for fallin’ down on the job, especially after bein’ on time with our episodes for four years, but we really do take pride in our work and always want to come back to them without any shame. We always had aspirations to work in comics since a young age, so we like to think our show operates at that level to a degree. Comics give you 20 pages of sequential goods for a few bucks every month, we provide 20 minutes of free animated mayhem every month. And we remember we don’t have to be too hard on ourselves, because while there’s some legendary comic talents known for workin’ impossible schedules doin’ the writin’, pencilin’, and inkin’ on their monthly books, there’s other celebrated folks like Madman creator Mike Allred who’s work was hittin’ shelves bi-monthly!

Speakin’ of comics, here’s an update for ya. Publishin’ at least one comic book has always been on our bucket list, and we think we may have found a publisher who can make that dream come true. We won’t say who for right now, but they print and distribute a lot of independent short run titles across the world, and they’re always takin’ submissions which really has us pumped. We’re beginnin’ to pull together an idea for a three part Screaming Soup! mini-series and figurin’ out how to accomplish this in conjunction with our commitment to the show. It would be a lotta work with very little sleep, but we’ll sleep when we’re deader.

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!

For all you fearmakers out there workin’ on your next scary feature, remember to shoot it our way as an entry in our Scream Freak Film Contest! Three winners will be reviewed in our 50th episode and promoted to all the Scream Freaks lookin’ for the next big thing Hollywood’s too scared to capitalize on. Deadline’s 8/20/18, so hurry!

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

See ya later, Scream Freaks!

SCREAMING AT THE CREEPY CHANNEL CRAWL AND HORRORTUBERS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Hope you’re wide awake ’cause Saturday the 16th kicks off the much anticipated 24 hour marathon, the Creepy Channel Crawl! Yessir, in a nutshell for any newbies to the site, there was a recent shitstorm among small time YouTubers after the head honchos of YouTube announced they wouldn’t monetize or promote any videos or their associated channels without 1000+ subscribers and 4000 hours of views in the past year. Some folks bitched, others went about their business, and then there’s gangs like the Horror Addicts who decided to rally support for certain channels they wanted to champion with the upcomin’ Creepy Channel Crawl!

Beginnin’ at 9 PM EST, this live streamin’ party kicks off at the Horror Addicts’ YouTube channel, and then every hour the marathon switches to a different YouTuber’s channel with its own brand of horrific humor and wild guests lookin’ for support to keep up with the demands of the web’s go-to video site. 24 hours, 24 different channels with more reviewers and horror hosts than you can wave a angry mob torch at from around the world includin’ y’all’s truly as animated crossin’ guards directin’ viewers where to go at the top of each hour. All the details can be found at HorrorAddictsTV.com along with a helpful schedule that lets folks jump in at anytime with links to each channel.

You know, since the start of this whole #SmallYouTubeArmy thing, we’ve been made aware of a lot more horrortubers within our online community of like-minded sickos. Problem is though, a lot of them tend to blur together with most everyone followin’ the floatin’ head show formula with candid talks about whatever they wanna share with viewers. Now, we don’t think there’s anythin’ wrong with that, and some hosts have enough personality and wit that makes fans beg for more, but we usually look for content with a bit more pizzazz in its step which is why our show goes to such lengths to produce the kind of entertainment we offer. Here’s a few horrific talents that caught our eye you might consider checkin’ out.

The Interfearence. Very small channel with only a handful of vids, but this fella caught our attention with his green screen look and penchant for old school monster movie hostin’. Found him when lookin’ up others’ online support for Joe Bob Briggs bein’ brought to Shudder.

The Homicidal Homemaker. Hosted by Kaci Hansen, this cookin’ show is a top notch production with short easy to follow videos for whippin’ up sinfully delicious treats themed after popular horror movies. As a bonus, most her vids include pretty damn impressive skits featurin’ our favorite monsters!

The Fun Nun Horror Show. Creepy Pasta feelin’ kind of vids featurin’ a mix of a guy yammerin’ ’bout movies while cross dressin’ as a nun, and a puppet named Duncan spazzin’ out while watchin’ scenes from different horror flicks. It’s a little too erratic for us, and we’d need to see more before makin’ an official statement regardin’ its entertainment value, but we definitely appreciate how different it is!

Emily’s Adventures in HorrorLand. A horror reviewer from the United Kingdom, Emily has a lot going right for her vids from what we can see. Eye catchin’ video covers, insightful reviews, funny skits, and above all else, she looks like she’s havin’ a lot of fun which only escalates the viewer’s experience for the better!

The Mummy and the Monkey Show. This is classic horror hostin’ at its best resemblin’ a variety show with one of the funniest character themed pairin’s we’ve ever seen. Not only are these Cleveland superstars hostin’ vintage films, but they’re sharin’ footage from their visits to horror conventions, performin’ comedy sketches, promotin’ their antique store, and even playin’ cartoons of their zany adventures.

Again, we encourage you to give these channels a look and drop in anytime durin’ the marathon to say howdy to the participatin’ channels. They’ve been workin’ really hard to prepare for this event, and we’re sure it’s gonna be somethin’ to remember!

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!
