Michael Stephenson made the world remember Troll 2 all over again with his hit documentary Best Worst Movie back in 2010. The filmmaker is staying in the 'horror documentary' genre, so to speak, with his latest film The American Scream, debuting on Chiller TV Sunday, October 28 at 8 Pm Et. It will also be screened in limited release through the Tugg platform, where fans can request screenings in their hometown.
This film takes us inside the world of "home haunters," those people who are incredibly obsessed with turning their homes in spooky spectacles for Halloween, spending thousands upon thousands of dollars on just one single night of the year. The American Scream explores three households with the same passion who all live in the same town, Fairhaven, Massachussets. I recently had the chance to speak »
One of my favorite nights of the year, along with many horror fans, is Halloween. There is just something magical about the night. Granted, the whole month is great for horror fans because usually as a grown up that means we will be will be asked for movie advice or what to do in order to celebrate the month and Halloween. For eleven months out of the year, we may be looked at differently by the general public but for October we seemly feel that we become important. The American Scream is a documentary, which spans over the whole month of October, about three groups of home haunters build up their haunts and their props while trying to balance their normal lives. Home Haunters are a unique blend of people who love Halloween or maybe just the thrill that it gives them when they become a main focus for one »

Let's get one universal truth out of the way up front: When you're a kid, Halloween is the best night of the year. Yeah, Christmas runs a close second, but Halloween is like Christmas with monsters and nothing beats that.
One of the things that makes Halloween so special is that crazy neighbor who, one night a year, goes out of his way to turn his suburban three-bedroom ranch house into a supremely scary, if somewhat tacky, haunted house. If you've ever wondered what motivates that guy, you need to see The American Scream, a wonderful new documentary that premiered at Fantastic Fest last night.
