The American Scream is a documentary profiling three families in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, who transform their homes into extravagant haunted attractions for Halloween. Produced and directed by Michael Stephenson, the film premiered on the Chiller network October 28, 2012.The recent growth of the "home haunter" phenomenon is linked to the influence of the Internet as well as the Haunted Attraction National Tradeshow and Convention (HAuNTcon).
The American Scream received generally positive reviews, garnering 76% of ninety-one reviews on the site Rotten Tomatoes favored the film stating that "The American Scream is really well done and has a lot of heart."
The film effortlessly toes the line between observational and compassionate, whilst Bobby Tahouri’s score is at once jovial and joyously creepy, succeeding in drawing the audience into the foray of Halloween excitement. Katie-Jane Hall of Critics Associated said "The real heart of this feature is the families; they sacrifice and support each other through thick and thin, allowing their lives and their homes to be enveloped by a mass of pumpkins, zombies, skeletons and fake blood all for the joy of others. Their passion is contagious and I would be surprised if it does not inspire some more amateur haunters to spring up out of the woodwork."
