SCREAMING AT THE PASSING OF HORROR ACTORS IN 2015!

Howdy there Scream Freaks! We like keeping our ear to the ground and informing you of anything we think is worth knowing about regarding horror news, and one particular subject has been popping up a lot! We’re only a little more than half way through the year, but the horror community has already lost several memorable actors from notable works in the genre. Here’s an overview of those who passed away in 2015 thus far in no particular order:

Christopher Lee (Hammer films, Star Wars saga, Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Wicker Man, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Howling II, Sleepy Hollow)

Betsy Palmer (Friday the 13th)

Robert Z’Dar (Maniac Cop 1-3)

Roddy Piper (They Live, Hell Comes to Frogtown)

Tom Towles (House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects, Night of the Living Dead (1990), Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Halloween (2007), The Pit and the Pendulum (1991) and The Prophecy II)

Alex Rocco (The Entity, Lady in White, Return to Horror High and Blood Mania)

Daniel von Bargen (The Silence of the Lambs, The Faculty, Lord of Illusions, Thinner and RoboCop 3)

Ben Woolf (American Horror Story)

Louis Jourdan (Swamp Thing, Return of Swamp Thing)

See what I mean? Luckily, most of these were deaths due to natural causes like old age, but it’s still hard to say good-bye and be reminded of their impressions on us through their works that continue to speak to future generations beyond the veil of death.

SCREAMING AT MORE BRUCE CAMPBELL TAKES IT IN THE FACE!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Well, you didn’t ask for it, but you got it! I’m talk’n about 4 more Screaming Soup! Presents Bruce Campbell Takes It In The Face! With all the buzz surrounding the long awaited follow up to the Evil Dead series this fall on the Starz network, we couldn’t help but re-watch our favorite Bruce Campbell moments in what can easily be disputed as horror’s most successful offbeat series.

Now, it’s no secret director Sam Raimi gets his jollies beating the shit out of Campbell in his movies, but we never really noticed before just how much of these gags land square on his iconic chin. When you see them all at once, it’s fucking hysterical! That’s when we got to thinking and looked for other movies where Campbell’s “Oh!” face served as a bullseye for gore, inspiring an idea for some comedic videos. After succesful research combined with the whole psycho babble about sexual subtext in the horror genre, we present these awkward moments in a hilarious new light with the vids right below. (Click HERE to see Bruce Campbell Takes It In The Face part 1-3)
