SCREAMING AT HALLOWEEN COMICS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Trick ‘r treat, smell our feet, and give us somethin’ good to review! The Halloween season is upon us, and what better way to break it in than with an in depth look at Michael Myers’ stint in the funny books as everyone’s favorite killer shape. 

Yessir, we’ve been mired in Michael’s continuin’ murder spree as a sequential slasher, and what a turbulent history it is. From indie publications to mainstream comic racks, these graphic exploitations are just as controversial to the splintered Halloween continuity as they are gore-tastic reads. We cover the sweet return of some of Halloween’s most popular characters, wince at the sours of some ridiculous retcons, and lap up the amazin’ artwork it’s all told through. 

And if that weren’t ‘nough, we go deep into the talents behind these various publications and the events they were tied to, gloss over each comics’ impact on Halloween’s competin’ timelines, and give our two scents on the newer 2018 requels while throwin’ in stuff ’bout the young adult novels for a bonus. What more could you possibly ask for?!

Phew! After all that work, you’d think we’d be sick and tired of Billy Shatner’s disfigured mug in our faces, but Michael ain’t done with us yet. Thanks to our amigos over at our favorite toy chest of yesteryear and today’s playful plastics, Toy Federation, we’ll be spendin’ this Friday, October 1st, with none other than Tony Moran (aka Michael without his mask at the top of the staircase in the 1978 Halloween), and hostin’ his QnA with fans ‘fore enjoyin’ a late night screenin’ of John Carpenter’s original masterpiece that started it all. Who could ask for a better way to kick off our favorite holiday, right?

It’s gonna be a killer time, so if ya happen to be in the neighborhood, stop on by and catch us all at Camelot Cinemas in Greenville, SC. Find all the details HERE

SCREAMING AT I BOUGHT A VAMPIRE MOTORCYCLE

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Lots of stuff happenin’ here at the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits, and lucky fer y’all, it’s all at your greasy fingertips below!

Fer starters, we’re proud to premier none other than our long anticipated SIXTH SEASON, Mad Monster Mash! Woo wee! Yessir, it’s an all new storyline, new cast of friends and foes to meet, and especially — more fully animated reviews featurin’ some of the nuttiest flicks we could get our mitts on. You might be wonderin’ how we can possibly top ourselves sailin’ into the bowels of hell to delay the apocalypse ‘gainst the Iron Horsemen of Doom last season, but rest assure, there’s plenty more trouble where that came from for yer favorite animated horror host to tangle.

As you’ll see in our latest episode below, this season is gonna be an ode to some familiar movie monsters with a Screaming Soup! twist as we’re wrangled into some unlucky sap’s mess involvin’ lotta royal melodrama in the classic hierarchy of monstrous stereotypes. And you bet yer britches, with each Hollywood horror we spotlight, we’ll dig up some obscure B movie you may have never heard of and likely wish you could scrub from yer noodle.

And keep yer peepers peeled, ’cause we’re reintroducin’ our I-Spy game from Season 4, but ‘stead of searchin’ high and low for the Full Moon Empire’s Dollman, we’re now askin’ y’all to keep a look out for the Crosslands biggest mini-menace, Ralphie Rottenhead. The first Scream Freak to spot this fella onscreen need only email us the timecode or a screenshot of his onscreen presence to ScreamingSoup@gmail.com, and the first one to shoot us the correct answer wins a free horror movie and an original piece of Screaming Soup! artwork! Pretty damn cool, if we say so ourselves!

And fer the first time ever, y’all can show your support as a Scream Freak and donate to our show through one of our new accounts at Patreon, Buy Me A Coffee, and Ko-fi. Took long ‘nough, right? Pitch in now and take advantage of some cool perks from monthly podcasts ’bout what all we’re watchin’ to alotta behind the scene looks at what it takes to make a Screaming Soup! episode!

SCREAMING AT THE SILVER BOLO AWARD!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Lots to catch up on since last we yapped, so let’s get to it, what do ya say?

First off, the Virtual HorrorHound Film Festival we were invited to host with Clownvis and Raggedy Dead Ann was a hoot and a half! We got to watch a butt load of flicks from some very promisin’ filmmakers we need to keep tabs on, mingle with a buncha comedians in the livestream’s chat rooms, and cheer our fellow horror hosts durin’ their segments. Raggedy reeled us in with her deceptively cutesy act, but Clownvis had us rollin’ with his oddball music video, Trafficula, y’all gotta see to disbelieve. And much to our devilish delight, the crowd had just as much fun watchin’ our short film block with us havin’ to keep the film festival’s livestream safe from a couple of malicious viruses found in a VR machine Doc Rex drug outta storage to enhance our virtual experience. Lotta fun, good times, and thanks again to master wordsmith Jessica Dwyer for makin’ this happen. In case any of you Scream Freaks missed the festival, below is our segment minus the short films fer yer enjoyment!

Screen Used Cult of Chucky doll and Deadwest with pathological photobomberNow, last time we wrote y’all, we teased at an upcomin’ video interview with Alex Vincent, better known as Andy from the Chucky movies. Everyone involved thought this would be a shoe-in to happen since he’s not some pretentious A-lister flyin’ in from Beverly Hills, but lo and behold, we couldn’t twist this former child star’s arm to save our tailbone for so much as a single question. After lookin’ worried he’d be seen talkin’ to a skeleton cowboy, Alex said he wouldn’t do an interview for less than three digits and even hinted he might be a bit gun shy from some cyber bullyin’ he’s experienced lately. With no choice but to respect the fella’s wishes, the best we could do is ask our question and report it back here for you Scream Freaks.

In case you trivia nuts and jokesters didn’t know, ‘long ‘fore Alex popped back in the Chucky movies with Curse of Chucky, he actually had one last literal throwdown with his friend to the end in a little movie called My Family Treasure in 1993. A family friendly flashback flick ’bout a household’s claim to a Faberge egg from the Russian Revolution, the reason horror fans will wanna check this respectably made fluff out (other than Dee Wallace playin’ Alex’s mama) is ’cause Alex has a humorous confrontation with a store bought Chucky doll. Most the movie takes place in a livin’ room littered with toys, one of which is a Chucky doll Alex immediately picks up the moment he enters the scene. He and the chew toy lookin’ Good Guy lock eyes long ‘nough to let the inside joke set in, then he throws the little guy down to haunt the background the rest of the movie. When we asked ’bout this gag, Alex admitted this was all the director’s idea after he figured out the heroic little boy from the Child’s Play franchise was cast in his movie, and he was the one who brought the toy to set. For those of y’all interested in seein’ My Family Treasure in its entirety, it’s still up on YouTube last we checked.  

We also owe a long overdue shout out to ‘nother supporter of our show. James C. Harberson III is a brilliant writer who first hit us up to review his graphic novel, Stay Alive (which is currently nominated for a Rondo Award for the Best Graphic Novels or Collections category. Check out our review in our Sequential Slime blog HERE), and is now spreadin’ the good word ’bout his new terrifyin’ anthology, A Disgusting Supermarket of Death. A mish mash of horrific characters and twisted fates, we encourage ya’ll to give yerself a good scare with these gross out pros and head over to its Amazon link HERE to snag it digitally or as a traditional paperweight. And if ya need more convincin’ to read this sucker, just see what our favorite ghost girlfriend Mandy has to say ’bout it with her in depth review HERE! And don’t forget to vote for ’em in the Rondos and throw us a vote while yer at it for favorite horror host HERE

Finally, the biggest news to happen ’round here lately is the announcement we won a Silver Bolo Award for excellence in horror entertainment from one of our show’s biggest inspirations, Joe Bob Briggs! Yeeeeee-Haw! Kickin’ off the premier of The Last Drive-In‘s third season on Shudder with a double feature of Mother’s Day and The House By the Cemetery, we’re honored to be the first recipients of this season’s winners and happily join the exclusive ranks of those who won ‘fore us. We’ve had our eye on this sucker since Darcy the Mail Girl first made it part of the show in 2019, and persistently suggested our show for the award with the help of you Scream Freaks as a lesser known horror themed series that could use the exposure. Never missin’ an episode of Last Drive-In since its original marathon that broke the internet, it’s surreal this happened the one time we had to miss the live feed due to plans out of town. Thank Craven for social media. As if designed by fate, we just so happen to look at social media the very minute Shudder congratulated us for the award on Twitter! 

Thank you Joe Bob Briggs for bein’ such an inspiration all these years. Thank you Darcy for believin’ our show is worthy of this attention. Thank you Shudder for givin’ the horror community somethin’ to rally ’round like The Last Drive-In. And most importantly, thank you Scream Freaks for all your support these many years. It’s your die hard enthusiasm for our show that fuels our creative fires to achieve milestones such as this.   

What’s next on our agenda, ya ask? We just snagged a couple more sweet interviews this past weekend with Tyler Mane and Paul Taylor, better known as Michael Myers and Pinhead, so expect to see those vids drop sooner than later. And it’s that time of year ‘gain when we help our favorite horror fam, the Horror Addicts, celebrate their own annual award show recognizin’ the best in horror entertainment, the Ahhh Scares! Scheduled for 4/25/21 on their YouTube channel, we’ll be there to hand out the award for best animated horror of 2020!

SCREAMING AT THE CANDYMAN HIMSELF!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Things have been a lot calmer since the premier of our 50th episode this Halloween, but we’re still hard at work bringin’ ya further adventures from the wild weird west with an upcomin’ season yer sure to go bonkers over. In the meantime, our amigos over at our favorite palace of plastic playtime from yesteryear and today, Toy Federation, have been keepin’ us in the loop with even more horror icons they booked in light of all the con cancellations this year, and this time ’round, they wrangled in the Candyman himself, Tony Todd!

While initially intimidated to meet the fella whose mere presence sends folks runnin’ outta room, we were surprised Tony’s actually a big cut up. Rather than spookin’ fans with his loomin’ stature or gravely voice, he spent the majority of his time jokin’ ’round, sharin’ recipes, and even snagged a couple of comedy routines with us for his Instagram which was beyond unbelievable. He ended up bein’ so entertainin’, it’s any wonder someone thought he could translate into one of the scariest supernatural killers to ever be captured on celluloid, but that’s just how talented of a thespian he is.

While on his good side, we persuaded Tony to give us a few minutes for an interview and got more than we bargained for with all kinds of silly reactions and answers we never saw comin’! It was a little harder to pull a theme together for the questions this time compared to past interviews at Toy Federation, ’cause Tony has such a varied body of work after more than 30 years in the actin’ biz, but we think it all worked out and made for one funny vid y’all are sure to enjoy below. Let us know what ya think!

SCREAMING AT THE SCREAM QUEEN NEXT DOOR, DANIELLE HARRIS!

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 yesteryear and today’s action figures while wranglin’ in visitin’ horror legends for a friendly chat ’bout different odds and ends of their careers. This week, that lucky icon gets to be none other than horror’s favorite scream queen next door, Danielle Harris!

With the chance to shoot the breeze for a minute, we were hard pressed to ask Danielle anythin’ that wasn’t already covered in a bajillion interviews ‘cross the interweb, but did find a lack of information regardin’ her stint as lead rugrat in several toy commercials from the ’80s. Diggin’ up her past playin’ with high dollar hunks of plastic, Danielle was more than happy to skip down memory lane with us. Just watch the vid below!

SCREAMING AT WEREWOLVES AND DR. PEPPER WITH DAVID NAUGHTON!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Sorry, it’s been awhile since we last checked in, but Halloween’s right ’round the corner, and we’re balls to the wall crankin’ out the goods to ensure we get y’all the long awaited finale to our fifth season that also happens to be -(GASP!)- our 50TH EPISODE!! Jumpin’ jack-o-lanterns, right? Yup, it’s an all out spooktacular as we wrap up everything from our descent into the bowels of hell, finally review the winnin’ flicks of our Scream Freak Film Contest, and party with most guest star cameos we’ve ever had. Just check out some of these sneak peeks!

In the meantime, we had to tear ourselves away from the grindstone when we heard Toy Federation was bringin’ ‘nother horror hall of famer ’round their parts, and it was none other than the American Werewolf himself, David Naughton! With the chance to bend his ear for a quick chat, we were hard pressed to ask David anythin’ he hadn’t already answered a bajillion times ’bout his time as a special effects werewolf but did find a lack of information regardin’ his time as Dr. Pepper’s fizz pushin’ pitchman he fondly mentioned on An American Werewolf in London‘s commentary track. Decidin’ to dig up his past as the face of a generation of peppers, David was more than happy to share his unexpected career in soda ads from the very first commercial to his questionable separation An American Werewolf in London might be to blame for. Just watch the vid below!

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.

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!
