SCREAMING AT SUPERSTAR SLASHER KANE HODDER!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Another week’s gone by, and we’ve just been to hell and back at our favorite toy store where we got the chance to hang out in the presence of one of the biggest and most celebrated names in horror today, Kane Hodder! His extensive filmography as an actor and stuntman in both movies and TV sparked plenty of questions for the most famous guy to ever play Jason Voorhees, but unfortunately we couldn’t pin him down long ‘nough to record a video interview for our show. That said, we still managed to walk away with an unforgettable experience our favorite ghost girlfriend Mandy’s just thrilled to share with ya. Take it away, Mandy!

“Deadwest and I recently spent time with some horror icons who were gracious enough to greet fans at one of our favorite stores, Toy Federation, a paradise of retro playthings in Upstate South Carolina.

This weekend, the guest of honor was superstar slasher Kane Hodder.

Going in, I expected to emerge with previously unpublished tales of Hodder’s career and confirmation that the scariest man ever to don a mask is what Felissa Rose called him in To Hell and Back, “the coolest man walking.”

He is, in fact, that cool . . . mesmerizing, menacing and genuinely friendly—to the degree those adjectives can converge in one person. My deep dive into his IMDb and other telling sources led to big laughs about his unlikely role as a ninja on The Dukes of Hazzard and his stint as stunt coordinator for Who’s the Boss?

We also discussed some disgust over a film that got mired in Muck and speculated about future Friday movies in which his character has a female nemesis—spoiler alert: He says telekinetic Tina would be Jason’s Jamie Lee, and the name Charlize Theron may have come up when we were picking players for our fantasy league.

The real story, however, may be the fans. One couple waiting in line had come from Ohio, and the wife, recovering from back surgery, was defying doctors’ recommendations to celebrate her birthday. The trip was preceded by a Cameo.com video her husband had commissioned from Hodder. In addition to the virtual well wishes, interstate travel, hotel costs and related expenses, the couple not only sprung for VIP tickets, but also returned for the general admission event on Saturday to possibly score a little more face time.

Throughout the weekend, Hodder instantly transitioned from comfortable conversation to cold-blooded killer, giving each person his all as he posed for picture after picture—no shot seeming like an aggrandizing selfie. To describe what took place, we turn to another formidable character, Aunt May of Spider-Man fame, who said this:

“Everybody loves a hero. People line up for them, cheer them, scream their names . . . and years later, they’ll tell how they stood in the rain for hours just to get a glimpse of the one who taught them to hold on a second longer.”

One man in the crowd, a law enforcement officer, said he looked up to Hodder so much as a kid, he was afraid to talk to him because he didn’t want the image he’d always had in his mind to change. Clutching an autographed machete on the way out, his childlike smile proved Hodder is a hero who never disappoints.”

Sweet summary of the events, Mandy! Thanks again to Kane for such a fun time cuttin’ up with everyone who hung out both days of the event, and an even bigger thank ya to the gang at Toy Federation for pullin’ all this together for the horror fans who’ve been disappointed by all the con cancellations lately.

Other than that, be sure to catch up on all past Screaming Soup! seasons, check out this week’s Howl’n Hottie, read recent reviews for the newer horror films and comics we’re checkin’ out in our blogs, R-Rated Reviews and Sequential Slime, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!

SCREAMING AT JAMES WINBURN, HALLOWEEN’S FALL GUY!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Boy, if y’all didn’t know better, you’d probably think we traded our digs at the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits for our new favorite toy store, Toy Federation, ’cause that’s where we spent ‘nother weekend diggin’ through collections of plastic goods from yesteryear and today while shootin’ the breeze with horror legends. Ran by a swell bunch of horror lovin’ fan boys, these new amigos of ours are puttin’ their store to great use in the face of all the convention cancellations, makin’ it an intimate meetin’ ground for folks to continue seein’ stars from their favorite fright flicks.

This time ’round, they flew in seasoned stuntman James Winburn whose long and successful career is most celebrated for a fall he took from a second story balcony as Michael Myers in John Carpenter’s original Halloween. Bein’ one of the first actors in an exclusive club to play the infamous Shape, we were plenty excited to hear some of James’s stories from the set, but even happier he was willin’ to give Screaming Soup! a few minutes to talk ’bout his involvement with other cult classic movies and actors.

An easy goin’ workhorse, James was a hoot to talk to as he unloaded encyclopedias worth of old Hollywood knowledge on us. Talkin’ through recent dental work he had done, James shares his association with Michael Myers as a horror icon, recounts the horrifyin’ street violence surroundin’ the production of 1991’s Popcorn, recalls jokes he pulled on the set of Ilsa She-Wolf of the SS, fondly remembers the late Robert “Maniac Cop” Z’Dar, and shares some of the hardest hits he’s ever taken in the stunt business. In hindsight, the injuries segment’s a bit long, but we feel it’s important to document as much of these kinda stories as possible for the benefit of anyone interested in bein’ a stunt man and to really capture what a conversation with James is like.

There’s so many more of his movies we wanted to ask James ’bout (like the fact there’s a Gong Show movie), but we got a fantastic handful of behind the scenes stories ya ain’t gonna find anywhere else. Check the video out below, and enjoy!

SCREAMING AT TONY MORAN!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Woo-wee, what a week this has been! After checkin’ out a double feature of Jaws and Jurassic Park at the drive-in, word got to us one of the original folks to play The Shape (better know as Michael Myers to some) was droppin’ by a local toy store for an appearance, and it turned out to be none other than Tony Moran, the fella who played Myers unmasked when he had that fedangled eye lid from a close encounter with a clothes hanger.

Thanks to the fine folks at Toy Federation for makin’ this happen, Tony was more than welcomed by his fans with a line out the door that snaked ’round the buildin’. Now, we normally hate the idea of standin’ ’round fer so long, but Tony was such a grateful guest, he managed to distract everyone’s boredome with periodic visits to the back of the line to extend his thanks for everyone’s patience while cuttin’ up with ’em. He especially got a kick when he saw us standin’ out from the crowd and even yanked his photographer outta his shoes to snap some pics with the web’s #1 animated horror host!

After that, surroundin’ folks wanted their own picture with us, and we were happy to oblige while spreadin’ the word ’bout Screaming Soup! with free tradin’ cards and magnets. Sweet! Even better, one little monster lovin’ young’n made our day when he pointed right at us and said, “I want one!”

Anyway, we eventually made it to Tony who was still entertainin’ the crowd with corny jokes inside, he lit up with excitement all over ‘gain at the sight of us as he surrendered his John Hancock on a still for Mandy, and our gang happily rode off into the moonset. What? Did ya think we made an instant love connection with Tony, and he invited us to shoot pool with the him after throwin’ himself at our boots, beggin’ to join our animated adventures? Woulda been damn cool, but naw. This was just a fun in-and-out signin’ with a class act from a legendary horror flick we’re happy to have been there for. Lotta thanks to Toy Federation ‘gain for arrangin’ this, and lookin’ forward to their next signin’ event with Kane freakin’ Hodder at their store!

SCREAMING AT THIS IS THE END!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Took a bit o’ time to get here, but partner, we promise the wait was worth it! One step closer to our epic Season Five finale, and things are literally heatin’ up as we make our big move to rescue everyone’s favorite apocalyptic goat from bein’ sacrificed in the name of kickstartin’ doomsday. There’s rapid fire action, high flyin’ tension, and plenty o’ laughs as we dish out our most ambitious episode yet!

As fer the movie we chose to review, it seems y’all are really bein’ thrown for a loop with this one. This Is The End ain’t yer typical horror flick and is much newer than the stuff we normally review, but that’s why we picked it. We always said we want to focus on more of the overlooked oddities folks should know ’bout, and this neglected “comedy” we had an instant love connection with is no different. Seems some of y’all’s reaction are polar opposites regardin’ it bein’ a Seth Rogen project, and while we trust him as an entertainin’ filmmaker, our praise for this film really boils down to its incredible execution for laugh and scares we would think alotta folks can connect with. We were so surprised and overwhelmed when we first saw This Is The End in theaters, it’s the last movie that made us excitedly round up as many amigos as we could for a second viewin’ in the same day!

We also want to give a shout-out to our amigo Danny Knightmare from the Horror Addicts fer squeezin’ his voicebox as the demonic lava surfin’ dude, Rebel Devil. We had some difficulty fillin’ that role and grateful for his savin’ the episode in the last minutes of its production. Now, that we’ve heard his radical take on the dude, we’re slappin’ ourselves in the face for thinkin’ anyone else coulda been cast as this character. Check Danny and the rest of his horrific family out at their YouTube channel, and Twitter!

SCREAMING AT WASHING YOUR HANDS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Ya know, when ya stay in as much as we do to work on bringin’ y’all the best animated horror host show on the web, it’s amazin’ how much ya can miss in the outside world. The second we stick our head outta our hidey hole for a breather, we learn the world’s been turned upside down in the wake of this Coronavirus that’s been wreckin’ everyone’s plans lately.

Some kinda respiratory thing, the Coronavirus has been makin’ headlines as this big bad bug from the East, killin’ some recorded number of young’ns and seniors who’s developin’/dilapidated bodies can’t handle the strain of the virus’s symptoms. At first, a lotta folks were crackin’ jokes ’bout it all from internet memes of quarantined Corona beers to the cast of Saturday Night Live coughin’ for laughs, but now it all seems to have taken an unexpected turn. With reports of this thing slowly spreadin’ to the other side of the world, concerts are bein’ cancelled, sports are bein’ played without crowds on the sidelines, schools are suspendin’ certain programs, Disney parks are lockin’ tourists out of their kingdoms, and upcomin’ movie premiers are bein’ pushed back as far as November! We don’t mind waitin’ for Daniel Craig’s final Bond performance but Quiet Place 2? Really?

Even the bird and pig flu never converted this many folks into panicked germophobes. Like milk sandwiches durin’ a blizzard, stocks of hand sanitizer and paper surgical masks are non-existent in stores at this point. People are spooked of touchin’ the wrong thing or shakin’ the wrong hand and bein’ forced into a two week quarantine from the comfort of home. My go-to chuckle in all this noise is all the news breaks of yahoos who refuse to believe avoidin’ this epidemic is as simple as “washin’ yer hands.” There’s actual reports out there warnin’ citizens to avoid the followin’ strategies for reducin’ their risk of infection, meanin’ at least one clueless yokel thought these bogus claims would help ’em battle the coronavirus; masterbation, doin’ hard narcotics like blow, and drinkin’ bleach. In a world where fads have included teens drinkin’ hand sanitizer to get drunk and ingestin’ Tide pods for the sheer hell of it, it’s not that far fetched to imagine people givin’ these things a try, but come on!

The bigger joke to us are all the businesses exploitin’ the Coronavirus with a parade of “comfortin'” messages to anyone who’s ever shopped their stores. These bulletins ensure their valued customers they’re treatin’ the threat of the virus very seriously and takin’ every germ killin’ precaution imaginable, so you can shop without a worry in the world. In other words – we installed Purell dispenser by the door.

Anyway, we here at Screaming Soup! headquarters are fine and dandy for those who care to know, and ’bout ready to start animatin’ our next excitin’ episode as soon as we wrap up a short toon we’re pullin’ together for Wolfgang from the Ghouligans (that retired gang of horror hosts who guest starred in our review of the Slumber Party Massacre series). In the meantime, remember to be smart with yer hygiene, don’t believe every little thing ya read or hear on the internet, and don’t forget – we’re in the middle of an election year, so things like this often get blown waaay out of proportion as a means to someone’s political end.

SCREAMING AT THE INVISIBLE MAN!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! We just saw the new Invisible Man flick this weekend from Blumhouse, and it’s pretty damn good, we gotta say. Here’s our review:

THE INVISIBLE MAN (2020)

After runnin’ away from an abusive relationship with a controllin’ scientist, Cecelia is convinced her ex-squeeze is gettin’ payback by fakin’ his death and harassin’ her in an invisible suit he built. Now, it’s a war of wits as she fights to prove he’s alive ‘fore he convinces everyone she belongs in the nuthouse. A different take on an invisible man flick that doesn’t follow the title character’s journey, this offers an entirely new kinda story told from the victim’s perspective. Despite the audience knowin’ what they’re gettin’ into from the get go, the filmmakers still manage to deliver plenty of suspenseful moments with whodunnit teases and some of the most bad ass invisible man kills I’ve seen yet. It’s not without it’s sours, however, like the non-sense logistics behind the scientist’s faked death and the lack of iconic imagery for such a universal monster. Best part is when Cecelia finds the Invisible Man by callin’ his cell. Slit throats, framed murders, kitchen fires, roofied job interviews, airborne women, young’n beatin’, macin’, car window punchin’, car wrecks, stabbin’s, fatal gunshots, bed sheet pranks, and nuthouse massacres and escapes! 4/5! 

So, definitely worth checkin’ out in our opinion.

In the meantime, we’ve been on an invisible kick thanks to all the hype over this thing and wanted to share some of what we’ve found with ya’ll. Here’s a list of other invisible heroes and menaces who fall outside the mainstream of Universal monsters movies, Predators, and Hollow Man double features ya might enjoy:

INVISIBLE MANIAC – An erotically low budget flick ’bout a sexually repressed scientist escapin’ the nuthouse and hidin’ in plain site as a high school science teacher while completin’ his research to turn invisible. When he FINALLY achieves this, there’s just ‘nough time left in the movie to rip gal’s clothes off and massacre their boyfriends.

CHEVY CHASE – Playin’ it straight in one of John Carpenter’s lesser talked ’bout studio pictures, Memoirs of an Invisible Man, Chevy is caught in a freak industrial accident that leaves him with a bad case of transparency. A dramatic thriller, this is the first time we’ve ever seen a film that made bein’ invisible not all it’s cracked up to be with Chevy pukin’ at the sight of his own meals visibly digestin’ in the air.

BENJAMIN KNIGHT -A loose sequel to Full Moon’s Mandroid, Invisible: The Chronicles of Benjamin Knight is the return of a fella who was turned invisible in a lab accident. Part of Full Moon’s attempt at creatin’ their own movie version of the Fantastic Four, this installment features super villains out to steal the cure to Benjamin’s predicament so they can weaponize it for eeevil ‘purposes.

THE DARKEST HOUR -Americans party in Moscow ’til invisible e.t.s invade the world and the only way to detect ’em is with light bulbs glowin’ in their presence. Decent flick, but feels like it ends as soon as it really starts to get rollin’.

 

INVISIBO -An evil resurrected Egyptian from the second season of the Freakazoid! cartoon series, this out of sight villain is easy to keep track of ’cause his magic weapon that turns him invisible ironically doesn’t disappear itself. Only thing worse than fightin’ his magic is gettin’ his catchy theme song stuck in yer head! “Where did he go? That Invisibo!”

SOUND OF HORROR -When workin’ on no-budget monster movies, ya gotta get pretty creative sometimes to suspend audiences’ disbelief. In this case, a buncha treasure hunters are after a loot of gold buried in a mountain, but they gotta go toe to imaginary toe with an invisible dinosaur to do it. This flick’s just beggin’ fer someone to drop in CG dinos after all these years!

INVISIBLE STRANGLER -A prisoner with interest in the occult uses magic ‘stead of science to make himself invisible and escapes the big house to strangle the five women who spoke ‘gainst him at his trial. A ’70s cop drama with a paranormal killer, this flick bounces back and forth ‘tween titles The Invisible Strangler and The Astral Factor.

LLOYD VENTRIX -Introduced in Batman: The Animated Series episode “See No Evil,” this criminal steals a toxic invisible suit to win his estranged daughter’s affection as an imaginary friend showerin’ her in stolen goods. Batman naturally kicks his ass in the end but not ‘fore a really cool chase scene with an invisible car!

FIEND WITHOUT A FACE -In this ’50s classic, a scientist’s experiments with telekinesis and thought projections give life to invisible creatures who steal their victims’ brains and spinal cords. When zapped with dangerous levels of radiation, the unseen creatures are revealed to be killer claymation brains that ooze bubblin’ blood when destroyed.

INVISIBLE MOM -Horror icon Dee Wallace accidentally drinks her inventor husband’s new invisibility formula and well – you know the rest. A duo of family friendly flicks from schlock maestro Fred Olen Ray, this makes me realize just how few invisible women there are in movies. Before this, the only one we could name is the Invisible Girl from the Fantastic Four!

FORBIDDEN PLANET -The movie that changed the trajectory of sci-fi films in the ’50s, a space ship lands on an alien planet and its crew is threatened by an invisible beast they can sometimes see outlined in their force fields. It’s runaway star, Robby the Robot, got a loose spin-off called The Invisible Boy where he grants a kid the wish to be unseen by his parents when he plays.

CECILY -When Boris Karloff’s soul needs help gettin’ into beach party heaven, he calls up his dead girlfriend, The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini. A mixed bag of ideas, this whole concept was an afterthought edited into a haunted pajama party the producers were originally unhappy with.

 

RODNEY SKINNER -When Alan Moore’s comic The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen got the big screen treatment, his version of H. G. Wells’ Invisible Man was adapted as well. A thief who stole the original invisibility formula, Skinner acts as the super team’s spy and saboteur who occasionally throws grease paint on his face to be seen by his colleagues.

DARIEN FAWKES -Syfy (then Sci-Fi) had their own The Invisible Man show that featured a thief the government experiments on with a Quicksilver gland that allows him to disappear by secretin’ light bendin’ fluid from his pores. Sounds kinda gross, but this did allow for alotta fun ways for him to make different parts of himself invisible ‘stead of all at once everytime.

THE INVISIBLE BOY -When Bob Burden’s cult hit comic book hero The Flaming Carrot couldn’t be adapted for the big screen, he came up with a team of super losers called Mystery Men. Among their gang of shovelers, ragers, and utensil flingers, is one fella who claims he can turn invisible, but only if no one’s lookin’!

 

SUPERGIRL -Coastin’ off three Superman pictures, we’d think there would’ve been ‘nough money in the budget to give Supergirl a run for her money in her major motion picture debut. But hell, flyin’ effects ain’t cheap, so let’s just double that effort like she’s battlin’ some invisible beast at the same time!

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.
