Horror fans are invited to a haunted Halloween stay at the original Scream mansion, which will be hosted by iconic slasher film star David Arquette. In honor of the famous 1996 horror film, up to four brave guests will be allowed an overnight stay at the Northern California mansion.
Arquette, who portrays Sheriff Dewey Riley, will serve as their virtual host for the deadly nightly stays and provide guests with instructions on avoiding becoming another victim of masked serial killer Ghostface.
Arquette, as Sheriff Riley said in an Airbnb press release, “Protecting the town of Woodsboro is my life’s duty, and I’ve certainly developed a knack for escaping Ghostface.”
“As your Host, I’ll be keeping a watchful eye on guests to ensure no one gets surprised by an unexpected plot twist. Trust me, horror movies always keep it interesting, for better or for worse.”
The property can accommodate up to four visitors for one night on the Halloween weekend of October 27, 29, and 31. They will be greeted virtually by Sheriff Dewey and then treated to a Scream movie marathon on VHS, iconic 1990s snacks, and pizza.
The guests will be put to the test if they attempt to use or pick up a phone line connected to Ghostface and discover knife marks on the garage doors. The house is outfitted in classic throwback 90s style, with the kitchen set up exactly as it was in the film’s famous climactic scene, in which Ghostface stalks his victims one by one at a house party.
The living room features plush couches and an antique television perfect for watching the VHS marathon. The upstairs bedroom features a vintage blue checkered bedding set with a chest at the foot of the bed.
Arquette and fellow Scream series veterans Neve Campbell and Courtney Cox will star in the new Scream movie, scheduled to premiere in January 2022.
