SCREAMING AT KILLER VEGGIES!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Things have been hustlin’ and bustlin’ ’round here at the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits since we wrangled Frankenstein to show Count Ted the ropes for bein’ a king of the vampires. Yessir, with a little more free time on our mitts, we decided to throw ourselves into a passion project that’s been a long time comin’, and we’re finally ready to share a little ’bout it!

So, while there’s plenty on our bucket list we wanna accomplish sooner than later, there’s one particular goal of ours that can’t wait any longer. As y’all know, we end every review with the disclaimer, “But what do I know know? I like killer tomato movies!” Well, some of you out there think we’re jokin’, but NO! We are in fact longtime fans of the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes franchise. From its sequels to its cartoon series, we’re nuts fer this cult hit phenomenon!

As a horror host show obsessed with these vile veggies, we were always goin’ to do a review on ’em at some point, but then we started thinkin’. What can be said ’bout this series that hasn’t been said already? There’s plenty of information on the first flick from 1978, but very little to no information on the makin’ of the sequels or the cartoon adaptation, leavin’ online reviewers and even print publications nothin’ to work with but their own color commentaries on the flicks ‘long with repeatin’ the same plot print from the back of the video boxes. How can Screaming Soup! celebrate its fandom in a more special way?

Then it hit us.

Instead of a regular ol’ review highlightin’ the sweets and sours of each killer tomatoes flick per usual, why don’t we do a deep dive and bring y’all the filmmakers’ own experience makin’ this series!

That’s no typo ya read. For the past year, we’ve been workin’ closely with the creators of the killer tomatoes themselves, Four Square Productions, and have been bringin’ together the most comprehensive review/retrospective ever attempted on the history of the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!

Featurin’ nearly 20 interviews with numerous key actors, supportin’ players, and behind-the-scene dynamos, we’re leavin’ no stone unturned as we finally dig up every bit of film buff trivia we ever wanted to know ’bout the makin’ of Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Return of the Killer Tomatoes, Killer Tomatoes Strike Back, Killer Tomatoes Eat France, as well as both seasons of the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes cartoon series. It’s been utter joy-gasms over here fer months talkin’ with all these fine folks responsible fer such a wild and hilarious source of entertainment for us over the years, and we can’t wait to put this out there for everyone.

That said, we still have just a little ways to go ‘fore we can present this to the world. All the interviews are completed and catalogued and currently bein’ edited into a BIG fun-filled Screaming Soup! Special that’ll be part documentary part animated comedy. As the project comes closer to completion, we’ll continue to post regular updates with steady reveals fer who else is involved and when it’s expected to premier.

SCREAMING AT PROPHECY!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Strap in for a haunted trail ride, ’cause we’re hitchin’ up to save Billy from hell where the Iron Horsemen of Doom wanna sacrifice our favorite mascot for end of days kinda trouble. Tarnations, this is gonna be tougher than our third and fourth seasons combined! Especially since we gotta get past one particular cursed obstacle who’s none to happy we’re cuttin’ through his yard to get to where we’re goin’. But we’ll get to that trouble in the episode below . . .

This time ’round, we review one of our personal favorite horror flicks we’ve waited years to share with ya – Prophecy! Yessir, not to be confused with those Christopher Walken flicks ’bout feudin’ angels, this is a late ’70s environmental terror that’ll leave ya too scared to ever picnic in the woods again for fear inside out jelly sausage bears will tear ya limb from limb and wipe its asses with ya like a Charmin commercial. It’s been years since we first saw it, but this movie’s tension never loosened its grip on us with its spine tinglin’ sequences of an unforgettable monster huntin’ likable heroes against an epically desolate backdrop. While it’s true Prophecy has been a target of ridicule over the decades and was even the winner of the Son of Golden Turkey Awards for worst killer bear movie, we defiantly scoff at the popular vote and stand by this monster romp for reasons you just gotta see for yourself in the vid below!

But before you jump headfirst into our newest review, here’s some quick updates. We’re still workin’ on the scripts for our review of the Halloween comics, and aimi’ to throw that Graphic Violence review up next. The Screaming Soup! comic is ready to be drawn when we can find the time, and be sure to ask your comic shop for the third issue of Dollman comin’ out this week, ’cause one of the alternate covers is ours! Not to mention, we got an even more bad-ass lookin’ parody ad inside for an 8 bit Puppet Master game you’re gonna wish was real!

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!

For all you fearmakers out there workin’ on your next scary feature, remember to shoot it our way as an entry in our Scream Freak Film Contest! Three winners will be reviewed in our 50th episode and promoted to all the Scream Freaks lookin’ for the next big thing Hollywood’s too scared to capitalize on. Deadline’s 8/20/18, so hurry!

SCREAMING AT HARDWARE AND DEATH MACHINE!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Throw your claws in the air and scream, ’cause it’s time for an ALL NEW episode of Screaming Soup! Durin’ your last visit to the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits, things were gettin’ pretty damned hectic with the arrival of the Iron Horsemen of Doom. These mean hombres wanna send the Crosslands back into the dark ages to return their fallen masters to power, and they need our Billy to do it! Tarnations! Big top bar brawls, nuclear crossovers, and now this?!

Good thin’ we got plenty of movies to help us cope with all the stress, and this time ’round, we take a look at two rock ’em sock ’em battle bot flicks from the ’90s called Hardware and Death Machine. Late to the party, we neglected these techno nightmares for far too long and are more than happy to finally check them off our bucket list. We were completely in the dark regardin’ Hardware for the longest time but hunted this sucker down after readin’ a pretty enamored review in Fangoria’s book, 101 Best Horror Movies You’ve Never Seen. Death Machine, on the other claw, is somethin’ we regretfully passed up in the video aisles for years, never suspectin’ that ambiguous box art was giftwrappin’ a unique mish mash of movie mayhem we’ve come to love and always on the lookout for. Thank Craven for Netflix offerin’ this at one point and helpin’ correct the errors of our ignorant ways.

But enough ’bout that. You’re eager to watch the new episode, we’re anxious to show it, so skip on down and get on with it for both our sakes. Let’s rewatch this sucker ’til our eyes bleed and then catch back up with the new Joe Bob Briggs marathon on Shudder this comin’ weekend, what do ya say?

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!
