Spend a Night in the ‘Scream’ House This Halloween
Airbnb is celebrating Halloween this year by allowing guests the opportunity to spend a night in the original house from hit horror flick Scream.
Located in Northern California (70 miles north of San Francisco), the house features in the dramatic final third of Scream where protagonist Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) confronts the Ghostface killer and discovers who the murderers really are.
In a callback to the film, the property is hosted by Sheriff Dewey Riley (David Arquette) who will welcome you to the house virtually and give you a few tips on how to survive the night.
“Protecting the town of Woodsboro is my life’s duty, and I’ve certainly developed a knack for escaping Ghostface,” Sheriff Riley said in a press release. “As your Host, I’ll be keeping a watchful eye on guests to ensure no one gets surprised by an unexpected plot twist. Trust me, horror movies always keep it interesting, for better or for worse…”
Once you’ve checked in and explored the house, complete with knife marks on the doors to the garage, you can settle in for a marathon of all four Scream films, on VHS of course. There’s also a phone line where you can call Ghostface and ask what his favorite scary movie is. The stay also includes a range of classic 90s snacks, such as Jiffy Pops, ice cream topped with Reddi-whip, and all the pizza you can stomach. There’s also a heap of merchandise you can take home, including a DVD bundle of the first four Scream films, Woodsboro High gear, posters of the new Scream flick, and more.
What’s even better is the one-night stay will only set you back $5! There are only three one-night stays for up to four people available on October 27, 29, and 31. Bookings for this once-in-a-lifetime rental open Tuesday, October 12, at 1 pm EDT via airbnb.com/halloween. As well as offering the house for rental, Airbnb will be making a one-time donation to Ween Dream, a great organization that provides free Halloween costumes across American for kids doing it tough.
If you miss out on clinching a night at the Scream house, Airbnb is offering a special online experience hosted by original Scream screenwriter and producer of the forthcoming fifth film, Kevin Williamson. He will explore the mythology of the franchise and let fans in on behind-the-scenes secrets. You can book this experience on Tuesday, October 12, at 1 pm EDT by visiting airbnb.com/secretsofscream.
