Original House from “SCREAM” is Available on Air BnB for Halloween!

This spooky season you can book a stay at the original “SCREAM” house! If you’re lucky enough to book it on Halloween and the few days leading up to it, your favorite small-town sheriff, Dewey Riley (David Arquette) will be hosting the overnight stay.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the film and we’re also now looking forward to an upcoming “SCREAMmovie in 2022.

If you love scary movies then you’ll be delighted at all the extra details they’ve put into this. The home will feature Ghostface’s knife, scratch marks on the doors and will even have the iconic brick phone.

With reports of Ghostface on the loose terrorizing Woodsboro once again, local sheriff Dewey Riley (aka Arquette) is your Host, there to share his tips on survival. Heed his warnings and watch your back or you might find yourself face to face with the most fearsome killer to slash his way across the silver screen.

When it was released 25 years ago in 1996, the original genre-busting, hit film became a pop culture phenomenon, eventually spawning four sequels. “SCREAM,” the latest film in the series will be released in theatres around the world starting on January 12, 2022.

“Protecting the town of Woodsboro is my life’s duty, and I’ve certainly developed a knack for escaping Ghostface,” said Riley. “As your Host, I’ll be keeping a watchful eye on guests to ensure no one gets surprised by an unexpected plot twist. Trust me, horror movies always keep it interesting, for better or for worse…“

Dewey will host three, one-night stays for up to four people at the Northern California estate on October 27, October 29 and October 31 for only $5* a night, in honor of the upcoming release of SCREAM in 2022. During their stays, guests will get to experience all the scariest elements of the original SCREAM, including:

  • A virtual greeting at check-in from Dewey (as long as Ghostface doesn’t catch him first).
  • The chance to explore the SCREAM house in all its original glory, from knife marks on the doors to the garage where Dewey’s sister Tatum met her unfortunate demise.
  • A movie marathon featuring all four SCREAM films (on VHS, of course) to get caught up ahead of the next SCREAM release. 
  • A dedicated phone line for reaching Ghostface, in case victims (ahem, guests) dare to ask any questions or make requests — but watch out, he might just call the house, too. 
  • Classic 90s snack favorites, like Jiffy Pop, ice cream with all the Reddi-whip you could ever want and pizza, if you’re able to stomach it. 
  • The chance to take home unique SCREAM memorabilia, including a DVD bundle of the first four SCREAM films, Woodsboro High gear, SCREAM (2022) posters and more.
