You Can Sleep in the 'Scream' House Now If You Dare
Horror film buffs can now stay in the house where 'Scream' was filmed.
We're in mid-summer, which means Halloween is just a hayride away. If you haven't yet made plans for how to scare the crap out of yourself, entrepreneurs Anthony Masi and Nate Ragon have a great suggestion: Spend the weekend at the Scream house.
The two have launched a Kickstarter for a huge event at the location where scene 118 from the film was shot, a house in Santa Rosa, California. They're calling the event "Scream Comes Home," and they're making bank. Tickets to the event go up to $1,750 for the VIP package.
You can get a ticket just to the screening for $50, but if you want to spend the night in the extremely creepy locale, it will cost way more.
And who wouldn't want to stay here:
Look familiar? Here's the scene in question, in case you're not a Scream fanatic.
Like any good event, the experience includes merch. Attendees can purchase an "I partied at scene 118" shirt, and folks who shelled out for the $1,250 Purple Scream Package also receive fan memorabilia and a bus tour, in addition to a one-night stay in the house itself.
Which actually looks pretty nice:
Though they helpfully provided some stills for fans to see which moments took place where in the house:
Seeing the house sans murder plot kind of creates a shocking contrast:
The house was known by the movie and crew and fans as "Stu's house." Stu is played by Matthew Lillard in Scream, and hosts a party where things get bloody.
After the scene was shot, the director made everyone shirts that read "I survived scene 118," which is where the idea for the Kickstarter t-shirts came from. This isn't your ordinary bed and breakfast.
Tickets also include perks like getting a phone call from the voice of the movie's killer, which is not something I personally want on my voicemail:
But a lot of other people obviously do, because the Kickstarter has already gone over its goal.
It may be too late to sleep in a bed where you can imagine you're being stabbed to death, just like in the movies, but attending a screening at Stu's House sounds like it's gonna be a rager.
