Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Hope you’re havin’ a scary fun October so far as ghosts and ghouls invade the yards of your neighborhood and the aisles of your local stores overflow with truckloads of eerily themed treats and cool new scares to decorate your abode with. Some of the best finds we’ve seen this year include a werewolf skin rug from Big Lots, a life-like animated owl from Halloween Express, prop replicas of Slimer at Spirit Halloween, and Target has a nice load of sensor activated doo-dads that brought goofy grins to our mugs.

So, there’s been a lot goin’ on since our review of Prophecy. In case you haven’t heard yet, there’s a fan made documentary bein’ produced, In Search of Darkness, and it focuses on nothin’ but ’80s horror movies and why the horror community is obsessed with it. We heard some buzz ’bout this thing on social media for a while but didn’t get excited ’til we saw the trailer below which got us pumped and runnin’ to show it off to like-minded freaks and creeps. We read up on the filmmakers involved and our contemporary web show personalities whose commentaries would be featured in it, and expressed our disappointment on Twitter we missed out on the chance to be included. Well, the producers saw our tweet and fired us an invite right away! The deadline to turn this in is comin’ fast , so we’re hurryin’ to animate material of us sharin’ our favorite things ’bout ’80s horror you may very well be seein’ next year in the documentary. Fangs crossed, right?!

A more definite appearance you can bank on, however, will be February 22-24, ’cause we’re finally gettin’ off our asses and makin’ our first convention appearance. Yessir, you heard right. Next year, we’ll be at Mad Monster Party Carolina in Charlotte, NC and we aim to make one hell of an impression screamin’ the word of our show to every bystander who even looks our way. This has been a long time dream of ours to do, but we kept draggin’ our boots and never went for it ’til now ’cause we finally squared away enough greenbacks to build the booth presence we always wanted. We’ll have a life-size character from the show, TVs playin’ our greatest scenes, free autographs from the voice actors, and some promotional freebies for folks to take home and look us up. If everything goes well enough, this will be the start of regular appearances and next year we’ll be able to afford some merch for y’all to buy. We can’t wait!

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!
