About the Film:
Every Halloween, sleepy Fairhaven, Massachusetts erupts with the most ambitiously creative spookery in the world. Endless styrofoam tombstones and backyard beasts come courtesy of a few supremely dedicated local "home haunters" who've devoted their lives to the art of handmade monstermaking. In this surprisingly touching documentary, The American Scream follows three of these horrific households to uncover the triumphs and tragedies that come with carrying the blackened banner of true Halloween spirit.
The American Scream is an original documentary for NBCUniversal's Chiller network and the latest documentary from director Michael Paul Stephenson and Magic Stone Productions, following the critically acclaimed Best Worst Movie. Magic Stone Productions and Brainstorm Media produce along with Chiller Films.
