Howdy there, Scream Freaks, and happy gobble gobble day! While there’s still a little over a month left in 2017, we can’t help but look back at everything that’s happened since January and reflect on our show’s triumphs and hiccups that have left us both humbled and howlin’ with joy. Fair warnin’ this post may get kind of corny, so brace yourself for sappy Hallmark moments ahead . . .

Every season, we strive to develop Screaming Soup! into somethin’ more than it is and grow its fan base with a list of goals. Some of these goals are slam-dunks, others continue to be as elusive as ever. Then there’s some that tease us with fleetin’ victories like Troma agreein’ to participate in our crossover with Full Moon Empire, just to back out at the last minute. Some of us felt even more defeated when we were further slapped with the censor notice from Troma followed by news our newly acquired spot on Beta Max TV disappeared overnight after they shut down due to technical difficulties. A regular buzzkill has been us tryin’ to get mentioned in a horror rag to no avail, our most consistent efforts bein’ regular emails to HorrorHound Magazine which requested suggestions for horror hosts they can spotlight.

But despite any disappointments we encounter, we never let these shortcomin’s eclipse our vision for our show’s future and diligently push ahead with focus on all the positives. We were happily picked up by Sluggo’s The Vortexx for their streamin’ broadcasts, and Beta Max TV eventually bounced back, eager to get us back in the line-up with hit web shows like the Cinema Snob and The Mummy and the Monkey Show. MonsterVision legend Joe Bob Brigg’s blessed us with his highest ratin’ of four stars which is a huge deal for us, and good ol’ fashion networkin’ at conventions has given us the means to try and pitch Screaming Soup! to television networks. We interacted with some of the best social horror talents like Mondopiece Theater, Homicidal Homemaker, and the Horror Addicts and even been talkin’ with the fine folks behind Ms. Monster and Her Monster Melons. We’re still emailin’ HorrorHound and other horror rags information about our show ’til one of them wants to publish an article about us. And while we didn’t get the trifecta crossover we planned our whole season around, we still produced the episodes we originally wanted to see and formed an invaluable relationship with Charlie and his staff at Full Moon Empire. They are the best people to collaborate with, and we’re thankful for all their support and encouragement in Screaming Soup!

But most of all, we’re thankful for you Scream Freaks! This entire production would mean nothin’ if y’all weren’t always comin’ back for another helpin’ of comedic animated reviews. It’s your positive comments, sincere love, and validation for our show that keeps Screaming Soup! up and runnin’. You’ve shared horror movies, personal stories, and feedback with us over the years, and we do our best to keep promptly in touch, because we value you as fans we’re makin’ all this for. Our YouTube subs may not be as high as most other horror flick reviewers, but what few we have are incredibly loyal.

Anyways, we hosted a couple of panels at the Big Fandom Greenville convention this past weekend and managed to record the audio from both. So, for those who couldn’t make it out for one reason or another, we edited these events to the slideshows used for presentin’ the different horror flicks we discussed and stuck them at the bottom of this blog. Perfect podcast kind-of vids for those on a long car ride to see family for Thanksgivin’, or anyone just needin’ help tunin’ out baby young’ns hollerin’ for more gravy trains at the dinner table.

In the meantime, 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!
