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.

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!

See ya later, Scream Freaks!

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
