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!

    How is it I’m braver to watch a movie that’s probably gonna be the same as the other Halloween movies yet my father refuses to watch?
