Stu Macher’s house chilled horror fans in the 1996 thriller “Scream,” and it’s now just $5 to rent on Airbnb for three nights only. Now that’s deal you’ll want to take a stab at! The catch, of course, is that there are only three single-night stays available, so… yeah. The odds are not in your favor.
On Oct. 27, 29 and 31, the house will welcome up to four guests who will get the real “Scream” experience…minus the blood, death, and mayhem.
The home is set up with a “dedicated phone line” to reach Ghostface, and guests will get a virtual greeting from “Scream” actor David Arquette playing his role as Deputy Dewey at check-in.
The $2.8 million mansion with straight grain wood detailing is not in the fictional horror town of Woodsboro — in reality, it’s at the end of a lane in a 298-acre wedding venue in Tomales, California.
As guests approach the 4,900-square-foot mansion, a Ghostface-patterned stained glass window sets the mood. SPOOKY!
“Step back in time circa 1996, where you’ll be instantly transported to the town of Woodsboro and all the mischance that surrounds it. You and up to three guests can stay the night (if you think you can handle it)… Ghostface has returned to terrorize our town, so we’ll need to be careful to avoid any encounters (we all know he loves to make an entrance).
“As the next brave souls to spend a night at the Scream house, you’ll get to experience all the scariest elements of Scream in the home where the first film’s most thrilling and suspenseful moments took place, including:
A virtual greeting at check-in from me (as long as Ghostface doesn’t catch me first).
The chance to explore the Scream house in all its original glory, from knife marks on the doors to the garage where my 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 if you dare to reach Ghostface directly—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.
“Whether you enjoy a true thrill or are just a scary movie fanatic, get ready for a one-of-a-kind sleepover commemorating all things Scream. And don’t forget to catch me in the upcoming Scream, in theaters around the world starting in January 2022.”
If you want to enter, head to this Airbnb site on Tuesday, October 12, at 1:00 p.m. ET for your chance to rent the house on either October 27, 29, or 31. Located around the town of Tomales in Northern California, the house has one bedroom but only sleeps four guests—two on a queen bed, two on an air mattress—and a single bathroom, so be prepared to get a little cozy. If these arrangements don’t appeal to you, please remember that it’s only $5 to rent, and there’s very little chance you’re going to get much sleep that night anyway. As Deputy Dewey says: “I’ll give you my best tips to survive the night, but if Ghostface has anything to say about it, there will be no shortage of haunts and happenings.”
