Howdy there, Scream Freaks! The verdict’s in and it sounds like y’all are enjoyin’ this epic 4th season sure enough, but there’s been some confusion and questions surroundin’ the storyline. Aside from the controversy over whether or not the booger from the closet officially won his fight with Rawhead Rex this past episode, some of you have been hittin’ us up askin’ why certain characters are included in Full Moon’s army of super freaks. More specifically, our horror fanfare’s been challenged with Scream Freaks tellin’ us characters from movies like Re-Animator, From Beyond, and Rawhead Rex have no place on Full Moon’s dance card for this war. Well, sit down before ya’ fall down, Scream Freaks, and learn somethin’!

When we here at Screaming Soup! think Full Moon, we think of its head honcho, Charles Band. Charlie’s been in showbiz for a long time and is partly responsible for an assload of horror and sci-fi films fans have no problem recognizin’. His first notable company that pumped out a lot of popular flicks was Empire Pictures which produced and/or distributed films like Re-Animator, From BeyondRawhead Rex, and too many others to name. After a few years, Charlie relocated his base of operations and transitioned to bein’ Full Moon as part of that move. So, since we identify Full Moon as Charlie and Charlie was Empire, then Full Moon = Empire for us. This is why the Jeffrey Combs characters refer to Charlie as Emperor Band as an acknowledgment of their ties to Empire Pictures. Plus, for entertainment purposes, this parody war is 10x more fun addin’ all those Empire characters with Full Moon’s current stars like Gingerdead Man and Killjoy. And if you need more proof, Scream Freak, just refer to the book Empire of the ‘B’s: The Mad Movie World of Charles Band by Dave Jay. Herbert West, Rawhead Rex, and From Beyond are even on the cover with Charlie!

Now that we got that off our chest, we got a few shout outs this week. First, we wanna congratulate a couple of Scream Freaks. Brandon Riggs from Wellsville, OH won this past episode’s “Spot the Dollman Challenge” and got himself a copy of Intruder with an original piece of Screaming Soup! art. Joe Kerr recently had a birthday, so everyone here’s screamin’ him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY because we always need an excuse for cake. We also had the pleasure of meetin’ the author behind the Gingerdead Man comics this past weekend, Brockton McKinney. Lots of fun to talk to and an important man ’round Full Moon ’cause he wrote the latest Evil Bong flick comin’ 4/20/17. Be sure to check out his company Lost Story Studios to see all the comics and movies he’s up to with his gang. And finally, our good friend the Grim Reaper has been bustin’ his ass on a new show, Mondopiece Theatre, and just released his newest episode which we’ve posted below for your pleasure. Give it a peek and tell him what you think!

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!

      It’s all good, Scream Freak! Yes, Killer Condom is based on a German comic book that was turned into a movie and distributed by Troma. Yes, Rawhead Rex is based on a story by Clive Barker that was turned into a movie and distributed by Empire. You ever see the comic book version of Rawhead Rex? Looks like a toothy mushroom man!

    I haven’t seen Rawhead Rex in a LONG time. Will have to revisit. Lots of my favorites with this one. I get your logic with Empire and Full Moon. Can’t believe others did not.

    I know this season is going end in a epic way but how are you doing with the war on censorship on troma are you and people of troma reaching some kind of deal that gets you to do the show uncensored on Youtube.

        We encourage it! FYI, if you get the chance to bend his ear, keep in mind he’s in favor but his partners are puttin’ the stop on everything. Still, let him know what you think and how you’d like to see the show uncensored!
