Documentary filmmaker Michael Stephenson discusses The American Scream, airing on Chiller TV Sunday, October 28 at 8 Pm Et

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.

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 »

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.

With The American Scream, drector Michael Stephenson, who previously gave us the fun Troll 2 doc Best Worst Movie, focuses his gaze on the hamlet of Fairview, Massachusetts, where he has discovered »
