The American Scream

American Scream

A film by Michael Paul Stephenson
Starring Matthew Brodeur, Victor Bariteau and Manny Souza

From the director of Best Worst Movie, The American Scream follows Halloween in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, where every year, the most ambitiously creative spookery in the world is revealed. The Bariteau, Souza, and Brodeur families are known as “haunters” and spend hours upon hours turning their homes into elaborate haunted houses every Halloween. This documentary follows them through their hardships and triumphs, and paints a compelling and sometimes heartbreaking portrait of American blue-collar life.

Clearly a labor of love from all involved, The American Scream is a warm and touching look at three families doing what they love with what they have. —Luke Mullen, Film School Rejects

I consistently alternated beaming and welling up tears throughout the entirety of Michael Paul Stephenson’s THE AMERICAN SCREAM. And you’re likely to, as well —Samuel Zimmerman, Fangoria
