Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Y’all may think things have been quiet ’round our parts given the dry spell ‘tween posts, but nothin’ could be further from the truth. Things have been boomin’ since we last spoke and keepin’ us pretty busy at Screaming Soup! HQ! The biggest news worth sharin’ is our favorite fright mag hit us up outta the blue with an invitation to host some short films! Yessir, later this month, HorrorHound Magazine takes their annual shindig digital, streaming a plethora of horrifyin’ entertainment from some of today’s scariest buddin’ talents and seasoned fearmakers in the Virtual HorrorHound Film Festival. We’re incredibly honored to be part of this party with a couple of other hosts, Clownvis and Raggedy Dead Ann, and think it’s a scream come true we get to collaborate with the one publication we think strikes the best balance ‘tween horror of today and yesteryear with so many fun facts packed into each issue, they’re even squeeze into the bottom margins of every page!

Big thanks to Jessica Dwyer for makin’ all this happen. We first met this phenomenal writer as our contact for the In Search of Darkness documentary we helped promote, and as one of HorrorHound’s regular writers, she was kind ‘nough to remember us and suggest to the head honchos at HorrorHound we’d be a shoe in for hostin’ some content. With this awesome opportunity droppin’ in our lap, it did delay the premier of our sixth season with us havin’ to produce a whole new animated adventure on the fly, but that just benefits you Scream Freaks with an all new special we’ll eventually share on our channel (minus the short film parts, of course). That don’t mean y’all should skip the festival, though! Head on over to the Virtual HorrorHound Film Festival for all the nitty gritty details and catch us in the live chat durin’ our scheduled block featurin’ us rescuin’ the stream from some pesty computer viruses.

And while we’re on the topic of film fests . . . one of our horror host heroes, Joe Bob Briggs, has thrown his ten gallon hat in the festival circuit with the announcement of his own event, Mutant Fest, and he’s open the flood gates to any and all filmmakers to submit their works at no costs for possible inclusion in this multi-day jamboree. Needless to say, we were quick on the draw and threw some of our own content into the mix, so fangs crossed we get some screen time at what’s bein’ called the “drive-in Woodstock.” We encourage y’all to do the same if ya have any cinematic masterpieces needin’ some eyes, and ya can find all the information on that film fest at it’s FilmFreeway page HERE. On a quick note, our next interview we’re lookin’ forward to will be at our favorite plastic playpen, Toy Federation, where we’ll be chattin’ it up with Chucky’s original friend to the end, Alex Vincent (you know . . . the fella who plays Andy). So, certainly keep yer peepers peeled for that vid to drop ’bout the same time as our stint with HorrorHound.

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!
