SCREAMING AT KILLER VEGGIE FANDOM!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Halloween’s just ’round the bend, and we’re burstin’ with excitement at what all this holiday season has in store. From revisitin’ Salem with the Sanderson Sisters to reimagining Hellraiser, we’re pumped to go into this spooky shindig with jack-o-lanterns blazin’, but it won’t all be monster movie marathons and stuffin’ our pie holes with Halloween Oreos (which we swear taste better than regular ol’ Oreos). No, in fact, we’re continuin’ to keep our noses to the grindstone and work diligently to churn out one helluva of a retrospective spotlightin’ one of our favorite franchises of all time . . . Attack of the Killer Tomatoes

Now, we’ve already been teasin’ y’all fer what to expect from this passion project of ours, but as we draw closer to wrappin’ this puppy up, the more freely we’re willin’ to share more ’bout it. As mentioned ‘fore, this ain’t gonna be yer everyday talkin’ head review. No, siree. Inspired by documentaries like Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy, Pennywise: The Story of It, and In Search of Darkness, we wanted to go all in on this sucker and dig up as much behind the scenes trivia as possible. 

That’s why the first folks we looked up to satisfy our appetite fer factoids were the creators themselves, Four Square Productions. Director John DeBello, Writer Costa Dillon, Actor/Producer Steve Peace, and even the elusive Michael Grant from the Tomatoes’ initial inception durin’ Four Square’s college origins all lend their stories to what made this San Diego born idea into a pop culture phenomenon. These fellas are just as funny today as they were 30 years ago, and have been a blast to talk with. They told us all ’bout the infamous helicopter crash, their invasion on France, their dealin’s with big league studios, and goin’ from cult hit to Saturday Mornin’ fodder. 

But we didn’t stop there. Bein’ the sticklers fer information we are, we wanted more than mere milestones in the Tomatoes’ history, and sought out juicy details from every one of the movies’ cast and crew member willin’ to talk to us — which it turns out — was a lot of ’em! From leadin’ comic hero Rick Rockwell and Miss Universe’s Angela Visser to the puppeteers and composers, we managed to chat it up with ’bout every talent behind and in front of the camera and collected ourselves a shoppin’ cart worth of stories worth sharin’. Malfunctionin’ puppets, alternate R-Rated cuts, sleazy fan letters — it hurts not bein’ able to share it all yet! Oh, and did we mention John Astin and Steve Lundquist are in the retrospective too? 

We’re coverin’ Killer Tomato topics related to the toys, Elvira, Four Square’s flick Sour Grapes aka Happy Hour — hell, we even do a deep dive into the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes cartoon series featurin’ interviews with its head writer, Richard Mueller, and Maurice LaMarche, the voice of Zoltan! How cool is that?!

Anyway, we have to get back to it if yer ever gonna see this thing released. Keep yer eyes peeled!

SCREAMING AT EARLY HALLOWEEN GOODIES!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! If we didn’t know better, we’d think Halloween already snuck up on us. Seems the haunted season can’t get here soon ‘nough fer some of y’all, ’cause the web’s gettin’ slammed with all kinds of celebratory updates featurin’ mass purchases of this year’s spookiest decor. From big box lumber shops to pop-up costume emporiums, this October’s shapin’ up to be one outrageously blinged out spook-tacular, and we couldn’t be more excited! Curious what’s been catchin’ our squirrelly attention so far?

Spirit Halloween stores have ‘come synonymous with merch that costs an arm and a leg, but none more so than this overpriced sucker we ’bout shit bricks over. Standin’ a bit over a foot tall, this weighty Light-Up Killer Klown Popcorn Statue rings in at $90! You can get a full size Ghostbusters proton pack with all the bells and whistles for that price! Why is this over the top paperweight so much? Is it the lights, ’cause they ain’t all that impressive or bright. But don’t be discouraged, Scream Freaks. If yer a Killer Klowns fan like we are, there are much more affordable and cooler lookin’ popcorn clowns as low as $10 at Wal-Mart!

Blowmolds are makin’ a comeback this year, and there’s plenty to be found at Lowe’s Home Improvement. From licensed kiddie properties like Mickey and Minnie Mouse huggin’ jack-o-lanterns to generic black cats and tombstones, these nostalgic decorations are all the rage with mid-century obsessed collectors, and are a welcomed blast from the past.

The last item that pulled us in like a tractor beam and had us runnin’ to the registers with it in a death grip were these Mr. Halloween Trick or Treat Tunes radios. Sleek retro designs with some pretty bad ass decals, these babies tune into three modestly pre-recorded channels fer weather, sports, and organ jams. We found ’em in a Marshalls department store, but plenty are sold online for reasonable prices.

There’s plenty more frightenin’ furnishin’s and demented decor we could yammer on ’bout, but we wouldn’t wanna peak to soon, Scream Freaks! Plus, we gotta get back to work on our Attack of the Killer Tomatoes Retrospective we’ve been teasin’ y’all with. Editin’ 20+ hours of interviews with all the cast and crew involved with creatin’ such a cult hit series is provin’ to be a chore, but we’re havin’ a blast as killer veggie fans and can’t wait to share this passion project as soon as it’s ready. So far, it’s lookin’ to be a real couch potato marathon with a potential runtime of four hours. Sounds like a lot, but horror fans like myself had no problem sittin’ through ’em 4-7 hour documentaries on the makin’ of the Freddy and Jason movies, so why not go all out for this? Killer Tomato fans have been denied all the behind the scenes trivia long ‘nough, and I’m gonna pack in all I can!

SCREAMING AT BEING THE HORROR HOST HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Hope y’all are enjoyin’ yer Summer so far, ’cause we sure as shootin’ are! From frigid treats flash freezin’ our brain baskets to beachside showin’s of Jaws 2 while William Castle fright tactics try scarin’ us outta the water, Summer can be every bit as thrillin’ as Halloween with the right twisted mindset. Whether it’s barbeque crashin’ cannibals, poolside pranks with carnivorous critters, or doomed vacations to hellish dimensions, there’s somethin’ scary to be found in everything.  

The best treat this season, however, was the ultimate Summer surprise when we found out we won a hell of a prestigious title from a super Scream Freak! Thanks to Timber at tmbrwlff.wixsite.com/toxic-tales, y’all’s favorite animated horror host has been recognized as a Horror Host Heavyweight Champion! Yee-haw! A perfect follow-up to our Silver Bolo Award from The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs, we’re incredibly humbled and appreciative to Timber for goin’ out of his way to show us how much our show means to him. Especially after he mailed us the championship belt to go ‘long with the title. Sweet tater stompin’ sasquatches, this thing is top shelf and a real ego booster! We’ve just been wearin’ it ’round the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits for days now, lettin’ it act as a sign that begs onlookers to ask, “What’d you accomplish?”  

In the meantime, we’re still focusin’ all our efforts on editin’ the most in-depth Attack of the Killer Tomatoes retrospective imaginable. With ’bout 20 folks involved from the cast and crew, all of ’em are eager to see this reunion of sorts come together, and we owe it to ’em fer their time and help to produce a top notch video with all the bells and whistles ‘fore returnin’ to our regular hijinks helpin’ Count Ted be educated in the ways of a vampire king. More on that later!

SCREAMING AT SUMMER READING HORROR!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Remember how much it sucked when school tried to hi-jack our Summer breaks with homework? We’re ready to bust outta that classroom like the endin’ to Rock ‘n’ Roll High School with the Ramones jammin’ the soundtrack to our freedom from gruelin’ tests and quizzes, and teachers we haven’t even given a hard time yet wanna burden us with readin’ journals on snooze fests like Animal Farm and Madame Bovary.

SCREAMING AT KILLER VEGGIES!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Things have been hustlin’ and bustlin’ ’round here at the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits since we wrangled Frankenstein to show Count Ted the ropes for bein’ a king of the vampires. Yessir, with a little more free time on our mitts, we decided to throw ourselves into a passion project that’s been a long time comin’, and we’re finally ready to share a little ’bout it!

So, while there’s plenty on our bucket list we wanna accomplish sooner than later, there’s one particular goal of ours that can’t wait any longer. As y’all know, we end every review with the disclaimer, “But what do I know know? I like killer tomato movies!” Well, some of you out there think we’re jokin’, but NO! We are in fact longtime fans of the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes franchise. From its sequels to its cartoon series, we’re nuts fer this cult hit phenomenon!

As a horror host show obsessed with these vile veggies, we were always goin’ to do a review on ’em at some point, but then we started thinkin’. What can be said ’bout this series that hasn’t been said already? There’s plenty of information on the first flick from 1978, but very little to no information on the makin’ of the sequels or the cartoon adaptation, leavin’ online reviewers and even print publications nothin’ to work with but their own color commentaries on the flicks ‘long with repeatin’ the same plot print from the back of the video boxes. How can Screaming Soup! celebrate its fandom in a more special way?

Then it hit us.

Instead of a regular ol’ review highlightin’ the sweets and sours of each killer tomatoes flick per usual, why don’t we do a deep dive and bring y’all the filmmakers’ own experience makin’ this series!

That’s no typo ya read. For the past year, we’ve been workin’ closely with the creators of the killer tomatoes themselves, Four Square Productions, and have been bringin’ together the most comprehensive review/retrospective ever attempted on the history of the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!

Featurin’ nearly 20 interviews with numerous key actors, supportin’ players, and behind-the-scene dynamos, we’re leavin’ no stone unturned as we finally dig up every bit of film buff trivia we ever wanted to know ’bout the makin’ of Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Return of the Killer Tomatoes, Killer Tomatoes Strike Back, Killer Tomatoes Eat France, as well as both seasons of the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes cartoon series. It’s been utter joy-gasms over here fer months talkin’ with all these fine folks responsible fer such a wild and hilarious source of entertainment for us over the years, and we can’t wait to put this out there for everyone.

That said, we still have just a little ways to go ‘fore we can present this to the world. All the interviews are completed and catalogued and currently bein’ edited into a BIG fun-filled Screaming Soup! Special that’ll be part documentary part animated comedy. As the project comes closer to completion, we’ll continue to post regular updates with steady reveals fer who else is involved and when it’s expected to premier.

SCREAMING AT ROBO VAMPIRE!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Woowee, this is one special occasion! Not only do we have an all new episode of Screaming Soup! to serve y’all, but this sucker’s got two — count it — TWO times the horror hosts to enjoy! That’s right. We’ve been promisin’ a crossover with more of our horror lovin’ contemporaries on YouTube, and this time out, we’re lucky ‘nough to share the small screen with none other than Doctor Wolfula!

Everyone’s favorite Scooby-Doo obsessed Wolfulite first visited our show as one of our many guest stars helpin’ celebrate our 50th episode, and his splatter happy appearance was a particular favorite ‘mong fans. Disappointed we were too busy that hectic episode to officially run into Wolfula, we made it our mission to rectify that with a legit meetin’ of our twisted minds in this latest episode featurin’ our introduction to the Crossland’s version of Frankenstein. What better ‘cuse fer a crossover, right?! Lucky fer us, our fellow Silver Bolo winner agreed and happily lent his talents to help us wrangle in this science fair oddity as we shoot the shit on a helluva copycat flick, Robo Vampire!

Lucky ‘nough to first discover this movie at the video store thanks to its bogus box art, we had the displeasure of goin’ into this sucker blind and comin’ out a more deranged fan of horror and Robocop. A miraculous misfire of ambitious short-cut filmmakin’, this Robo knock-off is what introduced us to the shameless practice of international rip-offs, cut-and-paste filmmakin’, and the wildly prolific filmography of Godfrey Ho, the Ed Wood of Hong Kong, that includes two loose sequels to Robo Vampire. Putrid polecats! As cinematic masochists, we couldn’t help but cover this falsely advertised trilogy fer yer benefit and even came up with a fun way to recap its source material fer a few laughs with us jazzin’ up Robocop’s origin story with clips from all his commercials and PR stunts over the decades. That was alotta fun! 

But we’re sharin’ too much! Jump down and watch the episode already and don’t bash us fer what happens to Doctor Wolfula, alright? That’s all his idea fer how he exits the show!

And ‘fore ya’ll go, check out our hostin’ duties fer Horror Addicts‘ latest Ahh Scares Award Show. We once ‘gain announce the winner fer Best Animated Horror, and Mandy pulls double duty handin’ off the Afterlife Achievement Award. It was alotta fun as always and is a great introduction to other horror themed YouTubers and programs ya might not be aware of.

SCREAMING AT A SPECIAL QnA WITH KANE HODDER!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Y’all may recall awhile back our comin’ face to face with one of horror’s heaviest hitters, and what a bitter sweet encounter that was. Kane Hodder blew through our neck of the woods fer an appearance at our favorite toy chest fer yesteryear and today’s playful plastics, Toy Federation, and as with many of the store’s guests, we anxiously anticipated an interview with Kane that would shed some light on his more obscure body of work outside the Jason and Victor Crowley movies. With him bein’ a professional fall guy turned monster suit actor turned regular thespian, we had no shortage of questions regardin’ his stints on popular TV shows like Who’s the Boss? and experiences actin’ ‘longside such high profile talents as Charlize Theron and Steven Seagal.

If ya read that blog by Mandy, however, then ya already know our attempt at that interview was nothin’ short of disappointin’. Kane just politely refused to do an interview and that was that, respectfully. He still answered any and all our questions from the word on ‘nother Muck movie to why Death House sucked so hard it blew, but just not in front of a camera. Mind ya, Kane was still a fantastic guy to meet, and we even spent the next day hangin’ ’round him as he signed autographs and jump scared unsuspectin’ customers, but we always regretted not bein’ able to add him to our growin’ roster of interviews.

Fast forward a few months, our second chance came, and we death gripped that sucker for all its worth!

Kane was swingin’ back by Toy Federation fer ‘nother store signin’, but this time he’d cap the night off with a showy QnA ‘fore an outdoor screenin’ of Jason Takes A Cruise To Canada. After makin’ arrangements fer us to host the QnA on the store’s behalf, we made sure to have cameras on the scene and capture the night’s festivities with Kane’s awareness. After a humorous half hour or so of him tellin’ stories from Hollywood and answerin’ fans’ all too familiar questions, we finally had the footage we needed to make an interview special!

Unlike our usual interviews with celebrities in a corner of the store bein’ asked a handful of questions, this video was more challengin’ to produce, ’cause it was an actual event and called fer a more creative presentation which is fun and different. Takin’ a laughable out of context approach akin to the kinda comedy Space Ghost: Coast to Coast is best known for, we dropped Kane into a completely animated world and exaggeratin’ the events that unfolded that night with our show’s characters in place of Kane’s real life cheer section.

A perfect example of this exaggeration is our overreaction to Kane’s answer to whether or not he’s ever met one of his own heroes from the silver screen. Our one and only deep cut question ‘fore the fans could claim him, and he confusingly talks ’bout how blessed he is to have played Jason so many times. Did he mishear us or forget what the question was altogether? We’ll never know, but it makes fer great comedy we hope y’all enjoy while learnin’ somethin’ new ’bout the man recognized for the most kills on film.

SCREAMING AT MORE EEEH-CARD! VALENTINE’S!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Whether y’all like it or not, it’s Valentine’s Day, and yer either that lucky stiff bein’ showered with affectionate nick knacks sweet ‘nough to tease a diabetic coma or an apathetic wreck drownin’ some disturbin’ loneliness in top shelf depressants while soul churnin’ emo tunes play at full blast. Or maybe yer butt’s in the recliner happily rewatchin’ some of yer favorite holiday horrors like Valentine or the My Bloody Valentine flicks. 

However y’all celebrate this greetin’ card invention, we hope yer lucky ‘nough to love and be loved today, especially durin’ such crazy times that’ve more than tested relationships new and old. As fer you Scream Freaks still lookin’ fer that arm candy of yer twisted dreams, we have just the thang!

.               

Last Valentine’s, we introduced a new line of grade school inspired Valentine’s Day Eeeh-Cards! featurin’ our monstrous mugs, and folks got pretty good mileage out of ’em. No idea if they led to any weddin’ bell marches or awkward pump and dump flings but feedback was positive ‘nough fer us to produce a second wave of cards featurin’ even more of our enticin’ antics.

SCREAMING AT THINGS TO COME IN 2022!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! New year, new – – – aw, forget it! We’re still the same ol’ animated misfits ya love to throw a few drinks back with, and have we gotta buncha irons in the fire over here at Screaming Soup! HQ!

So, y’all may have noticed thangs ’round here have been draggin’ a little. Sorry, ’bout that. Until we get more fortune with our fame comin’ through our Patreon, we’ve had to shift focus over to some more profitable gigs fer a spell, but believe you us — we’re still in the thick of bringin’ you more wild weird west adventures! In fact, we’re jugglin’ three in production right now!

First, Episode #52 of Screaming Soup!’s Mad Monster Mash season. The reviews already done, and ’bout 4/5 the animation is completed with aims for premierin’ next month. Our gang takes our first big step helpin’ Count Ted be the new king of the vampires with a house call from an ol’ friendly foe of Dracula’s, and things get so outta hand, none other than our fellow horror host in arms, Doctor Wolfula, can help! To boot, expect a surprise cameo by an actress from one of our favorite horror flicks! 

Second, our long awaited interview with the meanest boogey stuntman ’round, Kane Hodder. This wasn’t one of our normal interviews at Toy Federation and required a more creative approach which is why it’s taken so long to produce. Snaggin’ an interview with this horror icon was no easy feat, and we’re pullin’ out all the stops to present it as such.  

Finally, we’ve been workin’ on a top secret video project this past year regardin’ a series of movies we hold near and dear to our hollow chests. We don’t want to give too much away now, but we promise it’s gonna make up for the lack of vids lately when y’all see it. Hint: Ya better eat ’em ‘fore they eat you! 

That’s it fer now, Scream Freaks. Remember, even if our YouTube channel ain’t jumpin’, we’re just a tweet or email away!

SCREAMING AT CHRISTMAS 2021!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! With convoys of speedy delivery trucks hurlin’ material goods at houses covered in fire hazards, frostbite nippin’ at our extremities, and painfully long out of date tunes loopin’ on the radio, that can only mean one thang — it’s Christmas! Like, the real Christmas. Not Christmas in July or pre-game Christmas that jumped the gun ‘fore Halloween even got here. No sir, the legit Christmas full of sing-song strangers holdin’ concerts in yer yard like Purge night for loiterers, parents ignorin’ the rules of stranger danger fer any rando in a Santa suit, and folks battlin’ with their inner Grinch in an effort to be good fer the sake of others.

When we think of Christmas here at Screaming Soup! HQ, the yuletide season means a few things. Jammin’ to Christmas rap albums, fightin’ with the assembly of mema’s tree on the family farm, engorgin’ ourselves on crockpots full of holiday meatballs, wearin’ ugly sweaters that surprisingly have some mistletoe magic to ’em, and gettin’ bent outta shape knowin’ how much happier we’d be with cold hard cash than the useless pile of last minute nick knacks it was blown on. But most importantly, it means holdin’ our horses long ‘nough to break outta the day-to-day routines and appreciate what we got goin’ fer us, and those we’re lucky ‘nough to share it with.

And that includes y’all, Scream Freaks! So, Merry Christmas!! When it comes to our show, we couldn’t ask fer a better bunch of supporters to cheer us through our animated antics these past seasons, and we’re lookin’ forward to many many more. We’re still hard at work on our next episode featurin’ a crossover with Doctor Wolfula (which will be premierin’ soon), have more Toy Federation interviews and secondary vids planned that includes a chat with our favorite Jason, Kane Hodder, and even snagged an animated cameo with an actor from one of our favorite cult films we talk ’bout all the time. It’s all very excitin’, and there’s more where that came from (like ‘nother 50 episodes of Screaming Soup! worth)! 

So, sling some soup at a shelter, leave Santa a stiff drink, grab someone to kiss at the strike of the New Year, watch a scary flick full of mutant reindeer, snowmen stalkers, and axe wieldin’ Kris Kringles — however ya celebrate, live fer the moment and dream big in 2022!
