Just in time for Halloween comes the trailer for “The American Scream,” the latest documentary from “Best Worst Movie” director Michael Paul Stephenson, that delves into the lives of “haunters,” hobbyists who design haunted houses on Halloween.
“Stephenson draws a provocative connection between the holiday’s encouragement of make-believe and the aspirational mindset associated with the American dream,” wrote Eric Kohn in his review out of Fantastic Fest, where the film world premiered last month and won the Best Picture in the Documentary Features category. “Think ‘Death of a Salesman’ with demons.”
It opens in select theaters starting October 13. Go HERE to find out where it’s playing.
