SCREAMING AT STREAMING SKIN!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Man, the campaign trail is hot as we work to get the word out we’re up for a Rondo Award right now. Eager to get as many votes as possible, we’re emailin’ ol’ amigos, hittin’ folks up on every social media platform we can think of, and even postin’ ads on popular message boards. But in all the hustlin’ we’ve been doin’, we were reminded of a few tactics we’d been meanin’ to try for helpin’ spread the word ’bout our show to horror fans still in the dark to our existence.

Willin’ to give almost anythin’ a shot for more exposure, one crazy idea we finally saw through is uploadin’ our vids to one of ’em skin streamin’ sites we always hear folks referrin’ to whenever they need some special “alone time.” We ain’t gonna say which site, mind ya, ’cause that’s not the point of this week’s post (and the fact we might be a little bit ashamed).

No sir, the reason we’re even botherin’ to tell y’all ’bout this is ’cause of the laughable non-sense we’ve been called down for by the site’s administrators. Without knowin’ if they’re real keyboard slappers or data scannin’ bots, this particular site we used for a test drive is a harsher censor than YouTube. Like YouTube, this site allows anyone to create an account and upload content for all to enjoy. We haven’t figured out if there’s anyway to make a buck off every time an ad for explodin’ dicks or bang buddy datin’ loops beside our videos yet, but we’re only focusin’ on how much attention this could swing toward the show right now. We mean, come on, our vid’s thumbnails are sure to stick out like a soar thumb in somebody’s search for whatever floats their boat, and ‘fore we know it, we’ll have curios new fans checkin’ our stuff out ‘tween turn ons.

Anyway, the funny thing is we all know how sensitive YouTube can be at times, and how they’ll shut yer stuff down without hesitation at the slightest transgression ‘gainst their policies. Copyrighted sounds, images, too much skin on skin action, cruel acts of violence, and crybaby yahoos bitchin’ ’bout rights to some public domain commercial from forever ago can all be used as strikes ‘gainst ya. Sometimes it’s a person puttin’ eyeballs on yer stuff to flag it for these things, sometimes it’s a digital demonoid whose only purpose is to suck all the fun outta life. But whichever it is, it somehow knows how to decipher cinema from home shot snuff. Ya upload a review of somethin’ like Toolbox Murders 2 or Frankenhooker, YouTube recognizes this footage as a product from Hollywood and not some Faces of Death fan video. We’re guessin’ they have all these movies archived in their databanks for their computers to identify as legal properties, a service this particular skin site doesn’t seem to have.

After uploadin’ our first season (10 episodes that’ve been happily playin’ on YouTube since 2014 without a hitch), we were automatically slapped with sassin’ messages statin’ some of our reviews were deemed unfit and removed without any option to argue back like folks always do on YouTube. The two in question were Deadgirl (S1E1) and The Asphyx (S1E2). Seems this particular site can’t tell the difference ‘tween movies and real life, so it bucked Deadgirl out for involvin’ “unwillin’ participants in a sexual act” and The Asphyx for “animal cruelty.” If ya seen the movies or our reviews, then ya know they’re right, but in the wrong context. Deadgirl’s an unwillin’ sex partner, ’cause she’s a feral zombie chained in a basement. A guinea pig is killed in an experiment in The Asphyx but gains immortality as a result. And again, they’re just movies we’re talkin’ ’bout. Obviously, none of it’s real!

We just find the whole thing funny and thought y’all might too. Lotta folks think of skin sites as these cyber cesspools of immoral filth corruptin’ the minds of the innocent, but there’s even things YouTube will play these sites want no part of! As for the rest of our season, they’re still up and runnin’ on this particular site, but it may just be a matter of time ‘fore someone or somethin’ wrongly flags the kill counts in ’em for snuff.

SCREAMING AT CROSSOVER BUZZ!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! ‘nother week, ‘nother step closer to the next excitin’ episode of Screaming Soup! Yessir, while we’ve got our noses to the grindstone to pump out the next chapter in “Hard Road to Hell,” we’re simultaneously plannin’ for episodes beyond that. We’ve got all new villains in the works, unseen corners of the Crosslands to develop, and are even networkin’ more crossovers with some horrific personalities ya may have heard of.

With our 50th episode on the horizon, we’ve got some horror host hall of famers on the line for a special appearance, but nothin’s a done deal just yet. Hopefully, these iconic titans of humorous commentary will take a shine to seein’ themselves animated, but we’ll just have to wait and see.

The one upcomin’ crossover we can spill the beans on, however, is the one y’all have been beggin’ for. Ya ready for this? We will be crossin’ paths with none other than — Doctor Wolfula!

Yup, we first heard of this fan favorite horror host through our amigos, the Horror Addicts, and have been pleasantly entertained by his YouTube vids for the couple of years we’ve been watchin’ ’em now. A hard workin’ reviewer since 2010 with a zombie punchin’ bag for a sidekick named Ghoulash, Doc is relentless with his fandom for all things Scooby-Doo and tirelessly explorin’ any and all avenues for reachin’ fans ‘cross the web. He switches his presentation styles up ‘tween live action and animation, interacts with his followers through live streamin’ avatars and motion capture, and has even started producin’ an online comic strip. What can’t this fella do?

Anyway, we’ve been teasin’ a crossover ‘tween our shows for a long time on Twitter and finally reached out to each other this week to make that happen. With an upcomin’ episode in mind, we pitched Doc a guest star appearance that brings him face to face with Deadwest at the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits, and he quickly agreed to do it. No spoilers, but this legendary meetin’ of the horror hosts will be occurrin’ in our 52nd episode. A little ways off, we know, but hey, it’s none the less excitin’!

Other than that, be sure to catch up on all past Screaming Soup!

SCREAMING AT THE RONDO AWARDS!

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, ScreamingSoup.com, 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!

Other than that, be sure to catch up on all past Screaming Soup!

SCREAMING AT THAT OLD SCREAMS QUEENS REALITY SHOW!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! With the new year underway, we’re knockin’ our remainin’ side gigs out and workin’ harder than ever to get back to deliverin’ regular content on our YouTube channel for ya’ll. We’re catchin’ up with writin’ reviews for upcomin’ episodes, layin’ the groundwork for completin’ ideas we started in other vids, and back in the swing of animatin’ our adventures through hell. It feels great and helps to have Joe Bob Briggs’s Silver Bolo Award servin’ as a goal to work toward for the chance to be officially recognized by such a legendary host in the horror community.

Between stretches of our iron butt marathons at the computer and drawin’ desk, we’ve been veggin’ in front of the idiot box and bingin’ a guilty pleasure we just discovered. Browsin’ the Vidmark channel’s latest acquisitions on Roku, we stumbled ‘cross a show we never heard of called Scream Queens. Not that horror comedy with slashers after Emma Roberts, mind ya, but a short lived reality show from back in the day on VH1 featurin’ up and comin’ actresses competin’ to be in the Saw movies.

Minds blown!

As mentioned in our review of the Saw comic, we knew the franchise exploited its popularity with tons of merch, haunted house attractions, and roller coaster rides, but we would’ve never guessed it had a reality show, too!

The basic premise is ten aspirin’ actresses compete ‘gainst one ‘nother for eight weeks in a series of horror related actin’ challenges, and based on their performances, they either get a call back for a closer shot at bein’ in a major motion picture, or they get the ax. Each episode is broken into three phases: The girls begin with an actin’ challenge that features some element of horror to help ’em hone their skills as scream queen contenders, then they’re put through some group exercises by an actin’ coach, and finally gotta bring all these lessons together on a set where a director judges how well they take direction and adapt to the demands of the shoot. With the only constant bein’ actin’ coach John Homa ‘tween seasons, Saw’s favorite bad girl Shawnee Smith helped judge the first season as a mentor with a pre-Guardians of the Galaxy James Gunn servin’ as the director, and season two switched ’em out with actress Jaime King and the director of the newer 2001 Maniacs movies, Tim Sullivan. We were surprised at first the producers at Lionsgate brought in Jaime King as a mentor ‘stead of ‘nother Saw actress to judge season two, but it made sense when we learned she had just starred in their remake of Troma’s Mother’s Day at the time which Saw alum worked on.

Anyway, as far as any sours are concerned, they’re pretty trivial and nothin’ that spoils the fun of the show. The biggest tick we get is whenever the judges from any season criticize the actresses for not meetin’ their definition of a scream queen they basically describe as a strong sexy survivor. Tell me if I’m wrong, but aren’t they describin’ the traits for the final girl? I mean, a final girl can be a scream queen, but the show’s called Scream Queens, and not all scream queens are final girls ya know? Just look at the careers of scream queen royalty like Brinke Stevens and Linnea Quigley. They played final girls, victims, villains, straight up screamers . . . it’s a very loose term that can really apply to any character type so long as they’re screamin’ bloody freakin’ murder in a horror movie.

And ‘course, ya can’t have a reality TV show starrin’ ten gals crammed in a house without some catty drama, and that’s somethin’ we can do without. Now, we’re fully aware of executives alterin’ footage and stagin’ situations to spice things up for the home audience, but regardless of that, we do believe in the competition itself and the girls actin’ their hearts out to win it. That said, anytime there’s a confrontation, we’re skeptical of it bein’ at all genuine and just wanna get back to the fun of the challenges. Luckily, only season two has any of this non-sense and the majority of it’s bitch slappin’ tension is relegated to one episode. The real drama should have been with wardrobe dressin’ these gals like they’re bein’ auctioned off for human traffickin’ in the ball room scenes.

Regardin’ the sweets of this eye candy parade, our joy for the show comes from watchin’ the challenges and how they all relate to makin’ horror movies. If you’re an actor or filmmaker, this show shares a lot of valuable tips, tricks, and trades in the movie makin’ industry ya can take away. These girls work with pools of blood, wires, stunts, motion capture, squibs, critters, make-up, and show just how much thought and emotion goes into every performance from the most subtle facial twitch to the biggest gesture. The most fun we have watchin’ is usually Homa’s actin’ classes which always result in a true comedy of errors with the girls strugglin’ to impress him.

The only thin’ we think is missin’ from all this that would make it more fun is the girls’ fandom for horror. Season two touched on this a little, but for the most part, we don’t know if these gals are just a bunch of hungry actresses usin’ the show as their foot in the door for that big break or if they grew up on a steady diet of Freddy and Jason movies and want to be the next Michelle Bauer or Jacqueline Lovell. We were especially surprised how uninterested they looked when told they’re workin’ with Debbie Rochon for a day or actin’ on the same sets used for movies like Saw and Leprechaun.

SPOILER ALERT FOR THOSE OF Y’ALL CONVINCED TO WATCH!

With the prizes bein’ roles in Saw VI and Saw VII: The Final Chapter, Scream Queens only lasted two seasons. Tanedra Howard won the first competition and is the gal choppin’ her arm off in the beginnin’ of part six who comes back as one of the Jigsaw support group members in part seven. Gabby West won the next and final season and was cast as the girl screamin’ under the car trap that turns her into roadkill. A prize is a prize, and it’s awesome to be part of such a major franchise that played in theaters worldwide, but we find it funny how Gabby’s role paled in comparison to Tanedra’s. Tanedra got to flex her thespian chops with a legitimate performance that showed her range as an actress in scenes of varyin’ emotions with other actors. Gabby, on the other hand, was hogtied under a car screamin’. Eight weeks of intense competition provin’ she had the ability to outact a fierce pack of talent, and it was all to show she could scream under a spinnin’ tire on her back. It’s even funnier when ya wonder if her difficulty with blockin’ forced the filmmakers to put her in one of the most immobile roles in the movie.

The other fun part ’bout watchin’ a 10+ year old reality show like Scream Queens is seein’ just how these “life changing” roles affected these leadin’ ladies’ careers. Accordin’ to IMDb, Tanedra continues to have a steady TV career followin’ her stint in the Saw movies, her biggest role bein’ Tammy in a show called Black Boots. Gabby’s filmography, however, is more sporadic with large chunks of time ‘tween projects, her last recorded roles bein’ a couple of TV episodes in 2018. She was no fluke on Scream Queens, so hopefully Gabby’s applyin’ her talent to other uncredited avenues of filmmakin’ or at least the theater scene someplace. As for the other contestants who got the ax over the seasons, ’bout half of ’em seem to have stopped actin’ after a while, but the rest can still be found on TV and in movies like Christine Haeberman, Sarah Agor, Sarah Alami, Karlie Redd, Rosanna Pansino, Tai Davis, and Jessica Ortiz who’s currently one of the major players on ABC’s Station 19.

We’re not the biggest fans of reality shows, but Scream Queens has a lotta things we enjoy as fans of horror, filmmakin’, and purdy ladies. It’s a shame it was so closely tied to the Saw movies which were comin’ to a stoppin’ point at the time, ’cause we would love to see more of this show with potential scream queens fightin’ to be in even more upcomin’ franchise sequels like the new Halloween movies. Come on, Blumhouse, make it happen!

SCREAMING AT 2020!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Once ‘gain, we’ve rolled over into yet ‘nother far fetched future that looks nothin’ like the movies depicted which sucks if you were hopin’ for larger than life rock ’em sock’em robot sports like in Real Steel but lucky if it meant the peepin’ toms from space finally attacked like in Tom Cruise’s version of Groundhog Day, Edge of Tomorrow. Whatever you expected to have in 2020, the good news is Screaming Soup! is still here, and we’re gettin’ more serious than ever this year.

Yup, even while we were called away to side projects for a payday, we never stopped workin’ on content for your favorite animated horror host show. While spendin’ this past year networkin’ our show with new streamin’ services, pitchin’ it to studio reps, workin’ on a Screaming Soup! comic, and addin’ to our R-Rated Review blog and growin’ list of Howl’n Hotties, we’ve been cookin’ up new ideas for secondary vids to help fill some of the down time ‘tween our main episodes. More reviews, some horror 101 kinda stuff, and definitely more Graphic Violence and Re-Animated Reviews.

And dammit, it’s time we get our asses outta hell already! We’ve been there long ‘nough and need to wrap season five up for everyone’s sake. The fate of Billy, the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits, and the Crosslands has been hangin’ in the balance long ‘nough, and deserve closure. It’s one of the most frustratin’ things to always be at the mercy of the time it takes to animate such an epic.  We come up with ideas faster than we can draw it and just have to anxiously sit on ‘nother four to five seasons worth of stories ’til we can get to ’em. But ya know what they say – when yer goin’ through hell just KEEP GOIN’!

As far as any New Year’s resolutions go, we don’t typically do that, ’cause we treat every minute as a new chance to start over and turn anythin’ ’round, but this year, we do have a goal we’ll be strivin’ for. When tunin’ into Joe Bob Brigg’s Christmas special on Shudder, we caught news he and his mail girl Darci would start recognizin’ lesser known web entities in their upcomin’ second season and awardin’ ’em a silver bolo. We were already blessed ‘nough to get Joe Bob’s famous four star ratin’, but to be singled out ‘mong the horror host community by one of the greats on video and receive such a prestigious piece of attire would be mind blowin’ and a true step-up for our show. Oh, yeah – eyes on the prize, Scream Freaks!

SCREAMING AT PAYDAY DELAYS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Y’all best take cover, ’cause Christmas is comin’ at us like its brakes are cut, and 2020 ain’t too far behind. Tarnations, the holidays are flyin’ by this year. Barely have any time to kick-back with some SoCo nog and soak it all in ya know? Not that we have that kind of time to spare anyway as the web’s #1 animated horror host show, ’cause we’re consistently keepin’ the wheels on our operation rollin’ to pump out more Screaming Soup! content in the near future.

Now, we freely admit we’ve been professionally distracted from maintainin’ the tight production schedule our show used to keep, but when folks start wavin’ money in our faces to work on other projects, can ya blame us for temporarily steppin’ away from our passion fueled project to earn a payday? Luckily, most of these side gigs have been quick turnarounds like drawin’ independent comics for friends and alternate covers for Full Moon’s Deadly Ten comics. There was this one job buildin’ a website, however, that took twice as long as predicted, and ate up a whole two months we weren’t prepared to lose.

But hey, Screaming Soup!’s still as active as ever in the meantime. Our first season’s been uploaded to Mr. Lobo’s OSI 74 channel, we pitched our show to an important rep at a big time animation studio we’re waitin’ to hear back from, still deliverin’ the Howl’n Hottie of the week, continuin’ to add new bite size movie reviews on our R-Rated Reviews blog, added more reviews of the latest comics we’re readin’ on our Sequential Slime blog, and created a page here on the site featurin’ all our art for Full Moon Comix.

Despite all that though, most y’all will be happy to hear the jobs are beginnin’ to die down, and we’ll have an easier time addin’ animatin’ back into our daily jugglin’ act for your sake and ours. Mark our words, Screaming Soup! season five will be wrapped next year or we’ll change the name of the show to Pukin’ Poop!

Other than that, be sure to catch up on all past Screaming Soup!

PS

Here’s a Christmas CD ya probably never thought existed!

SCREAMING AT ELEVATOR PITCHES!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Well, we rocked Halloween, gobbled our way through Thanksgivin’, and now we’re slidin’ into Christmas, the holiday folks have been burstin’ at the seams to celebrate since August. Yup, for months we’ve been seein’ folks eagerly cover their homes in garish lights, slam their fridges with eggnog, and orchestrate full on drone attacks with those little terminator start-ups bombin’ neighborhoods with online goods they ordered in the comfort of their underwear. But as fun and relaxin’ as the holiday is, it’s also a lot of work, and we’re busy as it is bein’ the web’s #1 animated horror host show!

Like a couple of weeks ago. If y’all recall, we mentioned we were ’bout to hit up a convention where an important contact for a well-known animation studio would be in attendance, and we were dead set on gettin’ ’em to see our stuff. Well . . . we did just that. We found the very person we were lookin’ for, introduced ourselves when the moment was right, and as if karma was piggyback ridin’ the cosmic balance comin’ into alignment, curious bystanders saw our eye-catchin’ Screaming Soup! logos on our outfits and excitedly asked us ’bout our show as soon as we struck a conversation with the rep.

Right on cue, we flung open our portable DVD player with the show’s intro already playin’ and gave our best elevator pitch while handin’ ’em a folder containin’ our show’s bible ‘long with Screaming Soup! tradin’ cards, magnets, and a DVD featurin’ sample episodes in the back. Everyone’s eyes widened with joy from what they were lookin’ at, the rep told us how impressed they were with our pitch package and immediately told us they wanted to share it with their studio after Thanksgivin’. After a brief discussion regardin’ TV politics and show pitches to the head honchos of a studio, we exchanged business cards and happily parted ways. We feel really good ’bout this, Scream Freaks. Now, it’s just a finger-crossin’ waitin’ game as we hope our stuff impresses the big fish ‘nough for televised syndication.

Patience, y’all . . . this could be our wildest ride yet!
