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! Please use our social buttons in the upper right corner of the site and follow our tweets, subscribe to our YouTube channel, like our Facebook, watch and share all our vids, and keep that fan mail coming.

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!

18 DAYS, SCREAM FREAKS!!!

SCREAMING AT KILLJOY!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks and welcome to the next excitin’ battle royal between Full Moon and those other guys we’re not supposed to name! As we punch and kick into the last half of this interdimensional brawl between two mighty B-movie behemoths, you may have noticed the rules are changin’ somewhat. But not to worry, we’re here to explain!

We here at Screaming Soup! consider ourselves completionists. When we watch or talk about a series, we wanna go over all of it! Take our Season 2 finale for example, when we reviewed Slumber Party Massacre 1-3 and its loose sequels Cheerleader Massacre 1-2. This compulsion of ours is one big reason why Full Moon fans haven’t been seein’ certain reviews or appearances of their favorite Full Moon characters.

The purpose of Season 4’s first half was to make you Full Moon and Troma fans aware of stand alone flicks that may have flown under your radar, helpin’ clue you in to other monsters worth watchin’ outside the bigger titles like Toxic Avenger and Puppet Master. But we ain’t stupid, and know y’all wanna watch the big dogs throwdown, so this last half turns the spotlight over to them. Problem is, however, these movie monsters have more than one flick and remember what we said about us bein’ completionists?

So, we’re lookin’ at the remainin’ 5 episodes of the season and want to review complete series from each studio that’s anywhere from 4-10 movies each series. The most reviews we can reasonably animate around are 5-6, and those episodes run over 30 minutes. So, if we were to review 2 complete series per episode for the last 5 episodes, we’d essentially be producin’ a season and a half worth of material by the end with half the episodes runnin’ over an hour long each. With this imposin’ workload threatenin’ to work us into the ground, upset the regular premier dates, and screw up our production schedule for Screaming Soup! Season 5, it’s just easier to break these last fights down into parts over 2-3 episodes with each episode dedicated to 1 whole series instead of 2. This limits how many more of your favorite characters we can pack in before the end, of course, but we promise you won’t be disappointed by our picks for these final rounds.

While it’s not blatantly displayed on the video cover, we think you can easily figure out this fight is Killjoy vs The Class of Nuke ‘Em High which will continue next episode with a review of that entire Troma series (minus the newly released Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. 2 dependin’ on if we get a copy we can edit a review with). As sworn on a stack of Necronomicons before, Toulon’s puppets ain’t far behind and will get a very special in depth treatment that’ll make up for the wait when they arrive. Patience stressed one . . .

Anyway, watch the next episode, have fun, and congrats to this month’s Spot the Dollman Contest winner, Cero G. from Clinton, IN!

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

SCREAMING AT DOCTOR MORDRID AND POULTRYGEIST!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! If you haven’t heard yet, we got a brand spankin’ new episode up for ya! Yessir, the B-movie war wages on, and after visitin’ Full Moon’s base last time, we now get a look at how the other side lives in a hectic town where gangs run rampant, mutants unleash mayhem, and outbreaks of angry Native American chicken ghosts are always a concern!

This is an important episode, because we’re at the halfway point of the season now with only 5 episodes left, and things are only gonna get crazier from here on out! We spent these first few episodes gettin’ to know the key players while reviewin’ some of the more obscure titles everyone may not have seen, and we know some of you, especially the  Full Moon fans, are gettin’ antsy. You’re beggin’ to see more of your favorite characters jump out of the backgrounds and play a bigger part in the war. You’re demandin’ to know why we wasted other favorites as war casualties. You’re confused as to who’s winnin’ and how we’re keepin’ score. Some of you are even questionin’ why you haven’t seen some of the more obvious characters animated yet like Toulon’s puppets from Puppet Master!

Because we think you Scream Freaks deserve some answers after all the support you’ve given us, here’s what’s what. This war offers a big spotlight for many characters, but not everyone can fit in it, includin’ the regular Screaming Soup! cast. That’s why we’re packin’ as many characters from your favorite movies into the backgrounds as possible, with full blown animation reserved for those we think serve the story best for laughs or developin’ this season’s story arc. We also want to stick with writtin’ about characters we’re more familiar with to reduce chances of pissin’ off fans who think their favorite heroes and villains are given shit treatment. A prime example of this is Jack Deth from Trancers and Radu from Subspecies. We’ve known about these movies for along time but didn’t have the opportunity to watch them until well after the season was written thanks to Full Moon Streaming.

Another big decidin’ factor for what characters get featured are the movies we want to review and think you should know about. This gets a little confusin’, however, because some movies we originally wrote episodes around had to be switched out upon request. Episodes 33 and 35 were supposed to review Rawhead Rex and Prison which is why those characters are so prominent, but due to marketing reasons, Full Moon asked us to review other films like Blood Dolls and Doctor Mordrid instead which is fine by us and required minimal tweaks to the finished animation. And spoiler alert, we won’t be doin’ any reviews for Gingerdead Man or Evil Bong this season. We want to provide reviews of complete up to date series and Full Moon’s still crankin’ out sequels for those two in a hurry! And both series crossover with each other more than once, makin’ us feel like we have to review both at the same time which would leave even less room for other flicks we want to talk about this season. Now, you’ll still get to see them animated in the show, because they’re too good of characters to not include, and you’ll even get some foreshadowin’ of the trouble Gingerdead Man will be bringin’ to the war in this latest episode!

As far as the scorin’ goes and who’s winnin’ the war . . . we ain’t keepin’ track of all that. Makes us sound like a bunch of assholes, but we thought the thunderdome fightin’ would get old real quick and preferred focusin’ on more of these story buildin’ sideline battles like the basement mud wrestlin’ and Full Moon’s base bein’ infiltrated by spies. We originally intended for the ratin’ of the opponents’ flicks to determine who’d win the matches, but somethin’ about that didn’t feel like it would keep y’all on your toes enough. We think the more unpredictable the outcomes the better, makin’ the episodes more interestin’ to watch.

And as for Toulon’s puppets . . . they’re around and will get plenty of time on screen before this is all over!

Just a reminder, we once again had our “Spot the Dollman Contest” with Scream Freaks on the lookout for Full Moon’s Dollman, a 13 inch cop with an attitude, within the animation of this episode. The first one to email us a freeze frame of the Dollman wins a random Full Moon DVD and an original piece of Screaming Soup! artwork. This episode’s winner is Robert Kern III from Reisterstown, MD. Congratulations!!

SCREAMING AT NIGHTBEAST / CASTLEFREAK!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! As promised, we’re seein’ this fantasy fight through, censors be damned, and present the next epic chapter in this alien freak throwdown in the sky! Tensions continue to rise as toxic mutants continue testin’ Full Moon’s tolerance for their fragile truce, and it wouldn’t take much to tip everything back into full scale war with Deadwest and the gang caught in the middle! And if that weren’t enough trouble, just what the hell is Full Moon secretly workin’ on and who will pay the price?

As you can see, the Troma censorship continues to be a problem with them still not willin’ to “participate,” but don’t let that stop you from lettin’ your voice be heard. Some of you have made more videos requestin’ Troma allow us to play these non profit parody reviews uncensored, and some have even gone above and beyond, approachin’ them at conventions to vent about it. We were hesitant to post any contact info we had for Troma before, because we didn’t know how exclusive they were and didn’t want the headache of bein’ told we released any sensitive information, but we did find some publically posted emails on their official site you can reach them at. So, if hittin’ them up through YouTube or Twitter ain’t your thing, you can reach Troma at lloyd@troma.com, pr@troma.com, customerservice@troma.com, or marketing@troma.com.

And if you haven’t heard, today’s a big day for Full Moon as well with the premier of their newest flick, Evil Bong 666! If you haven’t seen any of this series yet about stoners gettin’ into trippy adventures with a magically sassy she-bong, it’s pretty damn entertainin’ with new twists and turns each and every sequel. As you can see in our R-Rated Review of the first 5 parts, it’s a solid fun series full of topless chicks, monsters, interdimensional travel, cameos of other popular Full Moon characters, and this newest one is sure to be no exception with the return of Gingerdead Man, this week’s Howlin Hottie Mindy Robinson, and the introduction of an all new monster Full Moon’s been havin’ too much fun with, the Gingerweed Man! Watch the trailer below and watch it at Full Moon Streaming or their Amazon channel!

And back by popular demand, don’t forget about our “Spot the Dollman Challenge!” Keep your eyeballs peeled for Dollman, Full Moon’s 13 inch cop with an attitude, hidden somewhere in the animated segments of this episode. The first Scream Freak to spot Dollman and email ScreamingSoup@gmail.com a screen shot or video time code of Dollman’s appearance wins a random Full Moon DVD and a signed piece of Screaming Soup! artwork. Pretty cool, right? This episode’s winner is James Lohmann from Markham, IL!

Some sad news to go out on, unfortunately. For a few months now, we’ve been pleasantly part of the Beta Max TV family who’ve been incredibly supportive of our show, but the channel has run into some serious technical problems and will no longer be streamin’. You can still warm up some Screaming Soup! leftovers, however, 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.

Brace yourself for the biggest monster brawl yet as a booger monster from the closet goes claw to claw with one of horror’s most bad ass beasts ever captured on celluloid, the pissed off psycho pagan, Rawhead Rex. Burstin’ with horror Easter eggs, golden showers, amputations, mutants, reviews, and Charles Band covered in boobs, you’re gonna need a poncho for the bloodbath this episode offers! Hurry and watch below!

SCREAMING AT TROMAGGOTS VS SHRUNKEN HEADS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Today is one momentous occasion as we crack open a big ol’ toxic barrel of sci-fi whoop-ass in our most ambitious season yet, Troma vs Full Moon! Yessir, it’s east coast vs west coast, mutants vs aliens, no budget vs more budget as B movies’ last warriors go toe to toe in this fantasy mash-up with your favorite animated horror host reffing the whole shebang!

This premier episode, we’re warmin’ up with reviews of some lesser known movies from Troma and Full Moon, Attack of the Tromaggot and Shrunken Heads. Both are pretty unique films from the warped imaginations of composer Danny Elfman’s brother and kids from Berlin, offerin’ plenty of what the fuck moments, monsters, and craziness you gotta see! We also need to give a HUGE shout out to Charles Band for Full Moon’s support for this event and goin’ as far as givin’ us some cameos to pepper in this season. We’re still workin’ on swingin’ some cameos from Lloyd Kaufman, but Troma’s involvement has unfortunately gone back into limbo for the foreseeable future at this time. Sucks, we know.

Reminder reruns of our show will premier on Beta Max TV 1/21/17 at 8pm durin’ a livestream line-up of horror host shows, and then we’ll be added to their video on demand section ’til the next scheduled rerun. Our first appearance on The Vortexx was this past Wednesday and went well, so we’ll continue bein’ in their scheduled line-up as well. Definitely check these channels out and enjoy some of the talent we’re joinin’ like the Mummy and the Monkey, My Gal the Zombie, and the Cinema Snob.

SCREAMING AT THE COUNTDOWN TO SEASON 4!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Our claws are shakin’, nervous sweat’s runnin’ down our gnarled faces, and our skin’s literally crawlin’ with excitement as we watch the clock tick down the final days before we open a whole can of animated mayhem with our epic new season, Troma vs Full Moon!

Things are in overdrive at Screaming Soup! headquarters as 2017 promises to be a BIG year for the show! Obviously, one big reason for that is the Troma vs Full Moon fight premierin’ 1/20/17.  This war is somethin’ horror/sci-fi fans like ourselves have wanted to see for a looong time and is sure to stir up fans of both film houses like never before. It’s even more excitin’ with Full Moon and Troma throwin’ their support behind the fun, givin’ us the thumbs up to go crazy. And if that weren’t cool enough, head honchos Charles Band and Lloyd Kaufman are gracious enough to film some cameo footage for us to pepper in the whole shebang. How freakin’ awesome is that?!

Other plans we have in the works for this year is hittin’ up different programs for Screaming Soup! to join in the hopes of reaching a wider audience. As of this week, we’ve been accepted by not one but two new families of like minded horror hosts! Weekly reruns of Screaming Soup! seasons 1-3 can now be seen on Beta Max TV and Sluggo’s The Vortexx which are pretty happenin’ channels full of demented content. Our Beta Max TV premier will be 1/21/17 at 8pm durin’ a livestream line-up of horror host shows, and then we’ll be added to their video on demand section ’til the next scheduled rerun. Our first appearance on The Vortexx is scheduled for 1/18/17 sometime from 10:30pm-11pm.

SCREAMING AT HORROR REBOOTS AND REMAKES!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! It’s Friday and some new summer movies have just been released to our displeasure in the theaters! One of which is the new Fantastic Four reboot, which has been taking a real beating from the reviews we’ve read from comic fans. The one consistent argument seems to be how the filmmakers missed the mark with what fans expected from these flagship Marvel characters, making them yearn for the 2000’s version that deserved more appreciation. Instead, Hollywood has dished out a hollow superhero story spackled with CGI shit to cover up its shortcomings. This super misfire got us thinking about how pissed we actually are at movies that get constantly rebooted, telling us the same stories over and over again, when we honestly think it would benefit everyone to just keep moving forward with new characters and adventures each cinematic reincarnation.

For instance, we just heard rumors there will be a reboot of the Nightmare on Elm St. series . . . Again! What the fuck? We just had a reboot not that long ago, and sure, maybe not everyone liked it, but it was decent in our opinion. Horror fans don’t want to see the same damn origin tale rehashed like with the Spider-Man movies. How many times can we pay to see the same story? Just move forward and tell a new nightmare with Freddy! He’s immortal after all, and Springwood isn’t stuck in any particular time period for him to terrorize, so simply tell a modern story with our favorite boogey man! That’s what they kind of did when they rebooted Friday the 13th which was a mixed failure. I thought we were finally going to see the story between Jason’s drowning and his resurrection as a full grown mongoloid, but no! We just get a plot that was really a sad sequel minus Jason rediscovering the hockey mask. That whole missing part of his origin could have been the hallmark of the movie, but instead we have a forgettable plot that leaves this movie blending in to the other more memorable sequels. And yes, despite arguments every Friday movie is the same, each did have that one memorable moment/situation unlike the reboot:

Friday The 13th: Jason’s mother seeks revenge.

Friday the 13th Part 2: Jason avenges his mother’s death.

Friday the 13th Part 3: Jason finds the hockey mask.

Friday the 13th Part 4: Jason’s death.

Friday the 13th Part 5: Tommy’s epilogue.

Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason returns as the living dead.

Friday the 13th Part 7: Jason fights a telekinetic.

Friday the 13th Part 8: Jason stalks the streets of Manhattan.

Friday the 13th Part 9: Jason is killed and shown he can jump bodies.

Jason X: Jason kills in space.

Freddy VS Jason: Two of horror’s favorite icons go head to head in combat.

Friday the 13th (reboot): He . . . uh . . . protects his dope?

We honestly think a couple of reboots that got it right were the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Halloween. Before you get too up in arms, these films were guilty of some poor decisions that left us scratching our heads (Like the first TCM reboot having no cannibalism and R. Lee Ermey stealing the show with his performance), but they gave fans new material with insight into these super villains of horror. While some thought it was too much backstory, we actually liked the first half of the new Halloween with the exploration into Myer’s time in the mental hospital which is the kind of thing we thought they were going to do with the Friday reboot.

And how the hell could New Line miss such a golden opportunity to release a 13th Friday the 13th movie on Friday the 13th in 2013?! That was like the stars aligning for some epic prophecy, but they completely dropped the ball. Just like they did with failing to celebrate Freddy’s 30th anniversary in 2014. We didn’t see anyone doing any special for that!

Anyway, we’re starting to ramble. Bottom line, STOP forcing the same shit on fans over and over again and give us something new and different with our favorite characters while staying familiar and fun.
