Airbnb has been on an absolute roll when it comes to finding (or making) incredible spots to kick back and relax for the night. Although, we doubt you’ll feel very relaxed during your stay in the iconic house from the genre-bending horror movie SCREAM. What’s more, it’s kept all of its 90s horror movie glory.
A little recap before we show off the stay. Directed by Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street), SCREAM’s cool and at times humourous plot was arguably the first ‘meta’ horror movie. As the teenage characters face off against Ghostface, the audience is treated to near-nonstop inside jokes, references, and self-aware humour.
And, it was in and around this Northern California home that it came to a bloody climax. Ever the sticklers for authenticity, Airbnb has retrofitted the home to be almost exactly like the movie, from knife marks in doors to Woodsboro High gear and even a real-life VCR! Talk about a flashback.
This isn’t just a place to sleep either- it’s a full-on experience. The lucky few who get to stay in the SCREAM house will be treated to a (virtual) welcome from Sheriff Dewey Riley (David Arquette), all the 90s snacks they can eat, and the chance to use that VCR for a SCREAM movie marathon. Of course, the experience wouldn’t be complete without a couple of calls, so a dedicated phone line has been set up for you to call (or get a call from) Ghostface themself. Spooky!
The bad news? Just like the Winnie the Pooh Airbnb experience, the SCREAM house is only available to US residents. Listen, Airbnb, we want this same thing in Canada, and we’ve got tons of cult-favourite movies for you to pick from. Let us putt around in Happy Gilmore’s grandma’s house, or do quick hat changes in Scott Pilgrim’s condo!
