Music Box Theatre
Free tickets for AMERICAN SCREAM this weekend!
Friday, October 5th, 2012


You are one of the folks smart enough to have already gotten your tickets to the Music Box of Horrors. Have you seen the full line up? You can see it below if you haven’t.

We had to make a last minute change to our midnight programming, and we have added the new (AND AWESOME!) documentary The American Scream to this weekend’s midnight offerings.

What’s best about this? We figure you are just the type of person to want to see this film and want to talk about it to others. So we want to have you come, bring a friend, and the two of you will get in free to the screenings this Friday and Saturday at midnight. We are only offering YOU AND A GUEST a free ticket, so one ticket per purchaser (in other words, if you bought 5 tickets, you don’t get ten freebies this weekend— come on…. don’t look a gift horse in the mouth!).

All you have to do is show up at the door, your name will be on a list, and we will give you and a guest a free admission. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before showtime. Seating is first come first served!

Friday, October 5th – Thursday, October 11th, 2012


The American Scream

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


“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

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.
