You can now stay in the original SCREAM home on Airbnb – if you dare
The spooky season is upon us, and while we can only dream of the thrills that haunted houses once brought to us, some people will actually have the opportunity to live in what is easily one of the most popular homes. iconic from horror film history.
We’re not talking about The Conjuring’s house (which, by the way, is currently on sale), but how lucky it is to live in the original house from the 1996 cult horror film. Scream, thanks to Airbnb. The best part? You will only have to pay US $ 7 (approximately S $ 10) per night for this terrifying experience, which you can share with up to three other brave souls.
Here you’ll step back in time to 1996, to the night Ghostface terrorized the poor people of Woodsboro. David Arquette takes over his role as Local Sheriff Dewey Riley to greet you for your stay, starting with a virtual welcome at the front desk.
You can then put yourself in the shoes of the characters by exploring the house in all its original splendor, with knife marks on the doors. Next, you’ll enter the garage, where the Sheriff’s poor sister Tatum experienced her unfortunate disappearance.
Of course, the holiday (or any Halloween, for that matter) isn’t complete without a Scream marathon, so expect to be treated all four Scream movies – via VHS – nothing less so you can relive the grisly murders in the very house you are in. Guests who are feeling very brave will find a dedicated phone line that will connect you directly to Ghostface, but that access is, in fact, a good chance it will call you first. Sheriff Riley promises advice for a death-free stay, but you’ll still want to stay alert while you are there.
If you’re feeling peckish, Airbnb will offer you a selection of unhealthy ’90s snacks like ice cream, whipped cream, and pizza, not all of which are choice foods for a night of terror. Survive this sleepover and you can take home unique Scream keepsakes like a DVD set of the first four Scream movies, Woodsboro High gear, as well as new Scream movie posters.
Are you still scared? So are we, but what is Halloween without a hair-raising experience or two? Like the Bearbnb, it will be a bit difficult to experience this in person unless you are in the US, so the closest you will get right now is a marathon of movies from the comfort of your own home.
At least you won’t have to worry about a knife welder psychopath coming in.
Scroll down for a closer look at all of the rooms and see if you can spot Ghostface lurking in any of them.
