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)

Aubrey Morris (A Clockwork Orange, The Wicker Man, Lifeforce, Bordello of Blood, Blood from the Mummy’s Tomb)

Robert Harris (Cabin Fever)

Patrick Macne (Howling, Twilight Zone, Night Gallery and Tales from the Darkside)

Rick Ducommun (Scary Movie, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Little Monsters, Blank Check and Ghost in the Machine)

Elizabeth Wilson (The Addams Family, The Birds, The Graduate, Dark Shadows and The Incredible Shrinking Woman)

Richard Dysart (The Thing, Prophecy)

Geoffrey Lewis (Devil’s Rejects, The Lawnmower Man, Night of the Comet and Trilogy of Terror II)

Gregory Walcott (Plan 9 From Outer Space)

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 VOICE ACTORS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! As always, things have been hectic around here as we continue our never ending efforts to bring you entertaining reviews of some of the most outrageous horror/sci-fi movies this side of the grave for your viewing pleasure. Lately, we’ve realized our show has been growing at a fast pace and have been reaching out to talents in the horror community for help. This mostly has to do with needing more voice talent for our expanding cast, and plenty of people have been quick to respond already. What’s better than being the voice of a cartoon character? Now, if you or anyone you know is interested in providing voices for future episodes of Screaming Soup! just hit us up at screamingsoup@gmail.com (preferably with a demo reel with all the different voices you can do for us to consider). Given you may be half way across the world from us or in another dimension, you will more than likely need access to your own recording equipment if we were to use you. And most importantly (or sadly), this would be pro bono work. With our show still up and coming, the best compensation we can offer you is a credit to add to your resume of work for future gigs that will hopefully be well paying jobs.

We’ve also been contacted by other horror shows out there who requested doing cameos with us which we’re down for as long as we can work it into our production schedule. One such show we’ve had a lot of fun talking with is “Your Final Answer with the Grim Reaper.” This guy’s got a lot of energy and enthusiasm for what he does, and certainly has talent we’re happy he’s lending to upcoming episodes of Screaming Soup! Be sure to support him through Youtube and Twitter.

Other than that, we should have an all new Re-Animated Review up and running within 2 weeks, and are currently working on the final drafts of some new Screaming Soup! Holiday Eeeh!-Cards for those needing some unique cards for birthdays and Valentine’s. These macabre messages for friends and loved ones should be up and available by next week.

As a reminder, be sure to use our social buttons in the upper right corner of the site. Follow our tweets, subscribe to our Youtube channel, like our Facebook, watch and share all our vids, and keep that fan mail coming. I’ll see ya’ later Scream Freaks!
