Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Took us awhile to get back here to ya, but we’ve been stupidly distracted by the newest tricks and treats hittin’ stores in time for Halloween. While we haven’t made the rounds to all of our familiar terror-marts just yet, the handful we have visited had enough new merch to make us scream with joy! Lifesize animatronic props of Jack Skeleton and Sally, Ouija themed dinnerware, tons more Ghostbuster movie props includin’ big-ass Slimer decorations, werewolf throw rugs . . . it’s almost too much for our twisted minds to handle!

In case you missed our R-Rated Reviews Blog or tweets, we did see The Nun on its openin’ night last week, and that was pretty disappointin’ we’re sad to say . . .

THE NUN (2018)

A loose prequel to The Conjuring, nuns are droppin’ like Amityville flies when a demon pulls a sister act tryin’ to escape its confinement beneath a Romanian monastery, earnin’ it the attention of the Vatican who sends a priest and a psychic nun in trainin’ to investigate. I can’t tell much what happens after that, ’cause this movie is filmed so dark, the scariest part is me thinkin’ I’m goin’ blind! I guess it’s supposed to immerse us in the dark age settin’ with candles as folks’ primary weapon against the dark, but I gotta see what’s goin’ on to be scared, ’cause the sounds sure weren’t doin’ it. I also think the filmmakers banked too much on audiences bein’ spooked by the image of the nun alone and didn’t do enough to make me fear the character versus her uniform. I was also confused by Taissa Farmiga starrin’ in this, ’cause I don’t pay attention to names and thought she was a young Lorraine Warren given she’s Vera Farmiga’s younger sister and all. Hangin’ nuns, possessions, romantic goat farmers, spittin’ locals, army of cloaks, watery graves, unholy seals, prayer circle bowlin’, ghost nuns, yappin’ nun corpses, folks buried alive, dead ringers symphony, supernatural visions, exorcism flashbacks, prayer galore, and a flock of dead birds! 3/5!

Of course, The Nun still packs the theaters as a loose Conjuring spin-off, makin’ it the #1 movie at the box office for now, but only time will tell if this lame Romanian excursion was really worth addin’ to James Wan’s filmography of booga boos. Hopefully we’ll have a better time watchin’ the upcomin’ Predator flick which looks more fun and better lit.

Regardin’ updates with our show, keep your peepers peeled for our next Screaming Soup! episode sometime in the next two weeks. We’re close to finishin’ the animation and should breeze right through the editin’ stage after that. As mentioned last time, we’re thinkin’ ’bout crankin’ out a new Graphic Violence inspired by the new Halloween movie and are currently writin’ the script for our review of every Michael Myers comic from Chaos’s run to even the special edition shorts released with DVDS and at conventions. We’ll be jumpin’ on that as soon as we wrap up the new episode, and somewhere in the mix of all that is us still findin’ spare time to work on drawin’ up that Screaming Soup! comic we told you we finished writin’ drafts for. Phew! Lot of work, but woowee, the end result will be incredibly rewardin’!
