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! 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 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! 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 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.

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

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! 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 CHANNEL CRAWLS AND JOE BOB BRIGGS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks, and putrid polecats, things have been jumpy on the web lately! In case you haven’t heard, YouTube’s been pullin’ its hair out at a bunch of drama stirred up by its advertisin’ partners for the past while, and it’s makin’ them rethink how a lot of things work over there. See, it use to be anyone could throw a video of any length and quality up on YouTube and select the option to turn that sucker into bankable cyberspace where junkmail ads could play, depositin’ micro-cents in these YouTubers’ pockets the more people watched their stuff.

Some big bad business gets all out of sorts, however, when it finds out its coveted ads are attached to videos that don’t exactly match their message for supportin’ the economy with caffeine jitters or booger blowin’ services, and raises hell with YouTube. Despite the fact no one likes ads on YouTube and avoids them like handshakes in a restroom, mega corporations don’t like how their investment in internet ads seems carelessly stuck onto any and all videos of questionable content that would make a nun blush, and make it appear as though they condone such sick entertainment. So, like EC Comics bein’ outed for corruptin’ the youth of America, one of the first genre of vids under scrutiny are the horror themed channels. Anyone bringin’ us the joy of blood, gore, and boobs most likely had their videos demonetized, bringin’ us the first wave of shame to be felt by the horror community. Some horrotubers rolled with the changes, others moaned about losin’ their weekly vendin’ machine funds, and the rest replaced their financial losses with what they dig out the couch.

Then the second wave of YouTube shenanigans hit. Without goin’ into all the details, some hot shot YouTuber ridin’ high on the ads aired someone’s decayin’ carcass on his channel and started an all new shitstorm. Lookin’ to wrangle even more control over the wild wild web of unpredictable video uploads for the sake of holdin’ onto to its only real source of profit, YouTube decided to cut its risks down even more, stating new rules goin’ into effect 2/20/18. By this date, any YouTube channel that has less than 1000 subscribers or less than 4000 hours worth of viewin’ time from the past year will not be allowed to monetize their vids. Now, while no one fallin’ short of these requirements is makin’ any YouTube money to begin with, the problem is really how this impacts their channel’s chances for bein’ pushed out in the open for YouTubers to discover and help grow its fanbase. More people watchin’ means higher view counts meanin’ bigger chances these channel creators might make you some dough for their efforts. You get the idea . . .

Now, as for Screaming Soup!, we luckily made the cut. Not that we ever made YouTube moola to begin with, but it’s still a comfortin’ thought. Other up and comin’ horrortubers aren’t quite as lucky though, and there’s been an aggressive movement among them that’s generated buzz like #SaveHorrorTube on Twitter and formed new communities like HorrorTube Army on Facebook. Other established horrortube personalities have even gone the extra mile to arrange special events for raisin’ awareness for these smaller channels such as Spooky Astronaut creatin’ a community playlist of horror related channels needin’ help. February 17th at 9 PM EST, the Horror Addicts have rallied together several channels in need of help and has put together an event called The Creepy Channel Crawl which will be a livestreamin’ 24 hour marathon on YouTube with a different channel hostin’ at the top of every hour. It’s sure to be an interestin’ time that’ll help get channels a lot of notice that weekend. Our show couldn’t commit to hostin’ a full hour of live streamin’, but we are providin’ transitional segments for the event that’ll remind viewers what’s happenin’ at the end of every hour and where to go next for watchin’ the next portion of the marathon. For all the creepy details of the marathon, click HERE.

In other news, we also want to officially announce our support for bringin’ horror host hall of famer Joe Bob Briggs back into our afterlives. The previous host of the Movie Channel’s Drive-In Theater and TNT’s MonsterVision, Joe Bob’s been off the air since 2000, and he’s tellin’ his loyal fanbase that Shudder TV might just bring him back, but he needs to prove he’s still in demand. To do this, he’s askin’ folks to provide him with an arsenal of testimonial videos beggin’ for more of his Drive-In Totals and redneck banter. We gladly answered the call sent him the vid posted below. If you’re a fan of Joe Bob and sick of watchin’ the same ol’ YouTube reruns of his glory days, then we encourage you to make your own vid and send it to one of TV’s greatest horror host legends at joebobtvshow@gmail.com and joebob@joebobbriggs.com.

SCREAMING AT HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! If you haven’t already noticed, we got our new season up and kickin’ and none too soon! We find out Billy’s fate, set-up some teases for future trouble at the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits, slip in bits of backstory, and officially introduce this season’s newest bad guys, the four horsemen of the apocalypse! And if all that weren’t enough, the cherry on top is a review of “Rowdy” Roddy Piper’s infamous Hell Comes to Frogtown with a little follow-up on its two sequels.

We also gotta give a big thank ya to the folks who helped out with this particular episode. This is the first time the animated segments fully feature music by Brian Barnes from Mondopiece Theatre, a long time supporter of our show, so a huge round of applause for him. We also got to work Pretty Weird Art’s Ethan and Rachel Monglin, the amazin’ creators behind the Death Elf and Woose comics which we discussed in a past Graphic Headstone article. Show your support for these fine talents and check out more of their stuff. Watch Brian’s video reviews HERE, and check out Pretty Weird Art’s comic blog HERE.

You’ll also be informed of this season’s newest contest, the Scream Freak Film Contest. Not the catchiest name, we know, but it gets the point across. If you make scary movies and wish we’d review your flick, then here’s your chance! Skip to the end of the vid below and find out how, and click the video link to the right for all the gory details for enterin’.

And for those Scream Queen aficionados, this is our final week celebratin’ B-Queen Sybil Danning as our Howlin’ Hottie of the Week, four weeks runnin’. This week we’re enjoyin’ her warrior outfit from Phantom Empire, a flick we haven’t seen yet, but need to right away by the looks of it!

SCREAMING AT HORROR COMICS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! We’ve been proponents of comics for as long as we can remember and are thrilled the rest of the world has finally caught up with givin’ them the recognition they deserve as a respectable outlet of literature. Course this has backfired somewhat, ’cause the same pretentious folks who were snobs about the artistic merit of comics are now oversaturatin’ comics’ fan base as born again funny book supporters, which kind of robs comics of their attraction a little, you know? It’s like havin’ a favorite cult film. It’s a cult film because only a few sickos with warped minds find any joy in watchin’ and celebratin’ entertainment the mainstream audience deems trash. But overtime, these trashy flicks gain traction thanks to video releases, cable broadcasts, and websites, and suddenly your outsider quirks for wearin’ Evil Dead 2 t-shirts or havin’ Big Trouble in Little China up poster on your wall don’t seem all that special anymore. But don’t get us wrong. Popularity in the mainstream means companies and studios will happily pump out more stories of our favorite monsters and psycho slashers for a buck, and the fast track for meetin’ these demands are typically comics.

Over the years, we have made it our business to hunt down the complete run of comics related to our favorite series of horror flicks. You name it, we more than likely have it. Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Child’s Play, Fright Night, and even the coveted and super rare copy of Phantasm: Overminds, the first and last time we pay more than $20 for a single funny book. The only exception we make for collectin’ these are the direct comic adaptations of movies themselves. They can give ya insight for how a movie might have played out if there was no such thing as a budget, but why do I want a comic when I already have the movie, you know?

This is a tradition that continues today with more companies than ever willin’ to license old movies for rag picture books, and we keep track of our favorite titles issue for issue at our Sequential Slime blog. For fun, we thought we’d clue you in to what’s recently come out and sum up our thoughts on them.

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA

Based on one of Carpenter’s zaniest flicks, this is an impressive series that’s yet to produce a bad issue. Jack Burton continues his Asian themed adventures with most the original characters from Big Trouble in Little China which includes a resurrected Lo Pan as the regular baddie out for revenge. With Carpenter guidin’ the stories, the series is full of humor, action, character, and charm as Jack drives his truck to hell and back fightin’ supernatural spooks, booger beasts, apocalyptic demons, and even Snake Plissken!

HATCHET    

Putrid polecats! Adam Green’s retro lovin’ gore trilogy ’bout a swamp slasher literally tearin’ folks apart makes for great popcorn flicks, but its first swing at bein’ a comic leaves a lot to be desired. The story is so-so ’bout college filmmakers makin’ a horror movie at Victor Crowley’s ol’ stompin’ ground, but the art is damn near detestable with it lookin’ rushed and half assed by the second issue. We’d only recommend this series to the die-hard fans.

ASH VS THE ARMY OF DARKNESS

Runnin’ strong after more than a decade in a consistently published comic series, we have a love/hate relationship with Dynamite’s stories of Ash’s continuin’ fight against the Deadites. More often than not, the series has been cannibalizin’ Sam Raimi’s movies from its plots to its one liners, resultin’ in an inbred product that rarely dares to take Ash and the series in new directions. The latest five issue mini, Ash vs The Army of Darkness, ain’t all bad with some new lore and villains added to the series as Ash goes undercover at a school infested with Deadites, but it still leaves a lot to be desired. As a side note, avoid the latest AOD/Xena crossover “Forever . . . And A Day” like a boonies proctologist with used tongs. Worst AOD story EVER published to paper!

THE HOWLING

A truer sequel to the original Joe Dante flick than Howling II: . . . Your Sister’s A Werewolf, these comics pick up after Dee Wallace is put down on live television and follows Marsha Quist as the movie’s lone survivin’ werewolf on a killin’ spree for magic that will give her control over a bunch of zombie werewolves. This is a very so-so series. It’s well made, but we think the artist needs to up the gore, and the writer should mesh Marsha’s story more with Chris’s (Dee’s coworker who shoots her on TV and is on the run from the government wantin’ to shut him up ’bout the existence of werewolves).

PUPPET MASTER

This is the best movie tie in comic on the rack today, Scream Freaks! Comin’ to the end of its licensin’ contract, Action Labs is wrappin’ up an amazin’ run of stories that not only bring back Full Moon Empire’s killer splinters but manages to cleverly cover up a lot of the movies’ plotholes. Brilliantly written, full of gory action, and thankfully brings the puppets back to modern times for more adventures that include some of our favorite characters from the first six flicks. We cannot recommend this one enough before its gone!

And there you have it, Scream Freaks. Some of today’s horrific titles we’re keepin’ track of for better or worse, and you can keep tabs on it all by checkin’ in on our blog, Sequential Slime.

And for those Scream Queen aficionados, we’re still celebratin’ B-Queen Sybil Danning all this month as our Howlin’ Hottie of the Week, which is the first time we’ve ever spotlighted the same horror honey for four consecutive weeks. This week we’re enjoyin’ her glam warrior outfit from Howling II which is a hoot of a commonly bashed flick with her playin’ a orgy lovin’ werewolf employin’ midget henchmen to stop Christopher Lee from killin’ her. Most remembered for her topless shirt rippin’ scene that’s replayed 17 times in the movie! Be sure to check more out the next couple of weeks, and let us know what your favorite Sybil flick is.

SCREAMING AT UPCOMIN’ DISTRACTIONS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Hope you’re breakin’ 2018 in with style and stayin’ outta trouble with all your tolerance testin’ resolutions. Ours is the same as every year of course, and that’s to bring y’all the best in animated horror entertainment we can on a regular schedule.

If you’ve been avoidin’ our site thinkin’ there was nothin’ worth checkin’ in for over the break, then allow us the displeasure of repeatin’ stuff you missed! First off, our fifth season is scheduled to premier at the end of this month, and we can’t wait to kick it off. Followin’ the conclusion of the war between Full Moon and (those other guys who missed out on tons of free publicity), Billy’s been blown a good ways from the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits and landed in the laps of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Luckily, the Screaming Soup! gang rushes to his rescue and begin a season long adventure that’ll take them to the four corners of the Crosslands and beyond to keep Billy safe.

These next 10 episodes are gonna be packed with new allies, villains, lands, and a bunch of horror host cameos as we return to basics and put the focus back on our own characters with more revealed about their backgrounds than ever before. You’ll see where Billy came from, how Deadwest died, and where Mandy met the man of her screams. The one notable change you may notice is the lack of familiar rock tunes blastin’ in the background, but that’s because we’re lucky enough to have Brian Barnes (the workhorse talent behind Your Final Answer and Mondopiece Theater, not to mention the social lube in the online horror host community) whip up some new scores to help make the show more original and avoid any pesky copyright problems YouTube and streaming services like to bitch about.

We’ve still got some of the secondary vids on the backburner like Graphic Violence and Re-Animated Reviews, but we can only promise to get to those when we can ’cause our primary focus is the main series which is what y’all are really here to kick back to for an insightful laugh. We’re sittin’ on three to four scripts for those vids already, but animation is very tedious, and since we upped the action in our show which means more time spent puttin’ it all together, it unfortunately steals time from vids of us talkin’ ’bout Beetlejuice cartoons and Re-Animator comics.

And for those Scream Queen aficionados, we’re celebratin’ B-Queen Sybil Danning all this month as our Howlin’ Hottie of the Week, which is the first time we’ve ever spotlighted the same horror honey for four consecutive weeks. We’ll be enjoyin’ our favorite eye candy outfits she’s worn for sizzlin’ roles that literally made some movie goers spontaneous combust under the collar, so be sure to check those out the next few weeks, and let us know what your favorite Sybil flick is.

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

SCREAMING AT 2018!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! 2018 has arrived and the premier of our fifth season is right around the corner with an all new adventure that’ll take our gang on a hard road to hell!

For anyone out of the loop, our Halloween finale ended in nuclear fire with an explosion that not only disintegrated the folks fightin’ on our lawn, but blew Billy to the far reaches of the Crosslands! Landin’ in the thick of some unsavory characters, it’s gonna take everythin’ we got to rescue our favorite critter from pendin’ doom which will take us to hell and back. Fire surfin’ demons, kick-ass angels, old gods, voodoo takeovers, horror host cameos out the ass, origin stories, and one of our own is even gonna kick the bucket. Can you guess who?!

With the arrival of a new year, we’re settin’ some pretty ambitious goals for ourselves that include strategies for buildin’ the show’s fanbase and tryin’ to get cool new merch in your claws. We’re continuin’ to hit up various rags who might be interested in printin’ an article ’bout us, and doin’ our best to reach out to TV networks we can pitch the show to as the next big thing. We’ve also been inspired to try and bring together some kind of publication like a magazine for each season produced so far with behind the scenes info and comics. That would be a slow and steady process given we treat the show like a monthly video comic, but it would be cool, right? In the meantime, we’re still workin’ on gettin’ some of the secondary vids done but not at the cost of losin’ traction with our main series which is what everybody comes to see. We’re producin’ more comic and cartoon reviews for y’all’s entertainment and have even started plannin’ a special or two in preparation for celebratin’ our 50th episode at the end of this year which we’re pretty pumped about.

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