Ho-Ho-Howdy there, Scream Freaks! The season of slasher Santas, rabid reindeer, and yuletide yetis is upon us ‘gain. Yup, it’s Christmas time! Brick up that fireplace, protect yer chestnuts, and don’t shake yer gifts under the tree too hard — they might just bite! This Christmas is sure to be the most frightenin’ one yet, and we owe a lot of that to a particular streamin’ service.

December kicked off beautifully with the theatrical release of Violent Night starrin’ Stranger Things‘ David Harbour as a kick-ass Santa rescuin’ a family of fat cat hostages from home invadin’ mercs in Die Hard fashion. A 5/5 romp full of serious silliness, we wanted to cover it as an R-Rated Review, but it clearly ain’t a horror flick with its top shelf fantasy/action sequences, so we decided ‘gainst it. That didn’t stop our favorite ghost girlfriend Mandy from sharin’ her two cents on what’s now our newest holiday tradition, however, and she was even quoted by Violent Night‘s Twitter account! So proud of her!!

Like every Christmas, while folks are on the hunt fer ’em perfect gifts that prove they’re not as selfish as everyone thinks, we’re huntin’ fer this year’s newest offerin’s of holiday themed terrors. We covered some of the more front and center promoted fright flicks like Weredeer, The Killing Tree, Nutcracker Massacre, and Shudder’s Christmas Bloody Christmas in bite-size reviews on our R-Rated Review blog, but putrid polecats — we just uncovered a whole treasure trove (or dung heap?) of Christmas horror movies on Tubi we never heard of!

Some new, some old, and all of ’em lookin’ like they were shot over weekends on a paperboy’s salary! Titles we discovered include Psycho Santa 1-2, He Knows, There’s Snow Escape, A Christmas Slay, Season’s Greetings 1-2, Slayed, Christmas Craft Fair Massacre, Christmas Blood, Happy Horror Days, Deadly Xmas, Axemas 1-2, Jack Frost (2022), Christmas Tapes, Christmas Vacation, Killer Christmas Elves: The Movie, Krampus: The Return, Krampus vs Big Foot, Vikings vs Krampus, Sister Krampus, Christmas Apparition, Stuffings, Mercy Christmas, Silent Night Zombie Night, I’m Dreaming of a White Doomsday, Leech, and Silent Night (2021). Most of these are still available to watch fer free on Tubi as of this post, and we’re tryin’ to get through as many as we can, so keep yer peepers peeled for these R-Rated Reviews!

In bigger updates, the trailer dropped for our upcomin’ Attack of the Killer Tomatoes Retrospective! Set to a rockin’ cover by Piss Ant (Click HERE for their YouTube channel), get a taste for what to expect from this Screaming Soup! special as we dive head first into the untold history behind the Killer Tomatoes franchise, speakin’ with nearly every cast and crew member involved with the makin’ of all four of the movies as well as the cartoon series. You’ll see the creators of the whole shebang John DeBello, Costa Dillon, and Steve Peace, hear from folks behind the scenes like the puppeteers and composers, and even get a peek at John Astin commentin’ on playin’ the series’ angry scientist, Prof. Gangreen. It’s all very excitin’ as we come closer and closer to releasin’ this sucker in the first quarter of 2023.

And even bigger updates yet, we now have Karen Mistal (Tara from Return of the Killer Tomatoes) joinin’ the fun, so this retrospective is really shapin’ up to be the definitive be-all-end-all killer tomato fans like ourselved have been waitin’ our whole afterlives for!
