Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Rockin’ and a rollin’ through these first weeks into the new year, we’re continuin’ to work our tails off to deliver the best animated horror host show to yer faces, and we’re comin’ closer and closer to releasin’ the next excitin’ episode as we speak. In the meantime, contemporaries of ours have alerted us it’s time ‘gain for one of the most coveted award seasons in the horror community – the Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards or Rondos for short!

For those of ya in the dark, the Rondo is a prestigious symbol of acclaim ‘mong horror fans that’s been honorin’ a crazy spread of top shelf talent associated with classic horror since 2002. Modelin’ it’s awards after actor Rondo Hatton’s malformed mug (specifically from his role as the Creeper in Universal’s House of Horrors, but y’all probably recognize him best as the inspiration for Lothar’s make-up in The Rocketeer), these mini-busts are essentially love messages from fans, ’cause they’re the ones who vote on who they think is most deservin’ of these babies. Votin’ by an open ballot, fans have successfully helped creative individuals win in categories that include best movie commentary, magazine cover, comic book, toy, website . . .  and the whole reason we’re bringin’ all this up – favorite horror host!

You already know what we’re gonna say, Scream Freaks, so scream it with us – Let’s get us a Rondo!

Elvira’s got one, Count Gore De Vol’s got one, Svengoolie’s got a record breakin’ coffin full of ’em as the favorite host of this past decade practically . . . it’s time Screaming Soup! step in the arena and shake things up and show ’em how we’re reinventing horror hostin’ for the 21st century!

First things first. To be part of the ballot, we have to be nominated. Luckily, this is easy ‘nough. All anyone has to do is visit the Rondo’s Classic Horror Film Board (click HERE to go directly to it), take a minute to sign up with Taptalk so ya can comment on the forum, and when all that’s set-up, leave the board a message sayin’ ya want to nominate Deadwest from Screaming Soup! for favorite horror host and be sure to include our site address,, and a reason why ya want to nominate us as yer favorite. We only have ’til the end of January to get Rondo’s attention for addin’ us to the official ballot fans will be openly votin’ on 2/2/20, so giddy up, Scream Freaks and thank ya fer everythin’ ya do!
