SCREAMING AT OSI 74!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Hope you had a speedy recovery from yer Halloween hootenannies without too much regret, ’cause the witchin’ season may be over, but we’re just kickin’ it into overdrive ’round here.

First off, you may have heard we were in attendance at the Reedy Reels Film Festival this past weekend ’cause  one of our misadventures was accepted as an animated short. Our show’s never hit this kinda artsy fartsy scene before, so it was quite the treat rubbin’ elbows with all walks of indie talents from ambitious filmmakers to up and comin’ actors. The free grub and happy hours didn’t hurt either! While we didn’t come away with any awards to speak of, we still felt like a success with every laugh we heard through the theater when our re-edited version of Deadwest Screams at Blood Diner played ‘cross the screen. Even better is when we got to go up on stage with fellow filmmakers whose films played durin’ the same block as ours and entertain the audience with our upcomin’ episodes of fightin’  demonic dung beetles on rivers of shit to stop the Iron Horsemen from damnin’ the Crosslands. Pretty tough act for flicks ’bout psycho bitches, Civil War spies, and narc comedies to follow we think.

Besides runnin’ into a emphatic audience member who became an instant fan of our show after it played, the best part of the festival was gettin’ to see a local horror director present his newest feature, A Nun’s Curse, starrin’ Sleep Away Camp‘s Felissa Rose as a homicidal nun. This guy and his crew did a great job hypin’ the film up with cool banners, buttons, and even a couple of guys dressed as nuns hangin’ in the back of the theater, but it unfortunately failed to meet the bar it set for me. I was expectin’ to enjoy a Tom and Jerry plot of a slasher movie but it endin’ up bein’ this talk heavy tour of a dilapidated prison that saves all its important deaths for the very end with some psychological switcheroos that completely ruined it for me. Fun experience ’cause of the festival but could be a lot better.

More sweet news that happened lately is our recent induction into Mr. Lobo‘s Roku channel, OSI 74! For those who don’t know, Mr. Lobo’s the horror host of Cinema Insomnia where he makes the case, “They’re not bad movies – just misunderstood.” If ya ever get the chance to read the man’s bio, he’s got a pretty impressive history with all kinds of creative endeavors from underground comics to starrin’ in the 2015 spin on Plan 9 From Outer Space. More recently, the legendary jack of all trades launched his own Roku channel featurin’ a sweet collection of entertainin’ programs. Similar to a UHF station, OSI 74 offers a line-up of original shows that include indie toons, space adventures, pop culture reviews, obscure flicks, and a variety of horror host programs that include Mr. Lobo himself, Veronique Von Venom, Lord Blood Rah, and even Sleazy P. Martini of GWAR fame.

We were hooked the second we stumblin’ ‘cross this one of a kind collaboration ‘mong hosts and been plannin’ to pitch our show as one of its programs for awhile. The only reason we held out so long is ’cause our original plan was to wrap up Screaming Soup!’s fifth season ‘fore we contacted Mr. Lobo, but with all the recent work we picked up drawin’ covers for Full Moon Comix impactin’ our production schedule, now seemed as good as any to continue gettin’ the word ’bout our show out and grow our fan base. So, after a few messages ‘tween us and Mr. Lobo, he liked what he saw, had us edit our kick-off season into 30 minute packages, and we’re now streamin’ on OSI 74 as we speak. Lotta thanks to Mr. Lobo for the exposure and ecstatic to be included in such good company of talented hosts. Get OSI 74 today and check it out, Scream Freaks!
