Those seeking an extra spooky spot to spend Halloween should look no further than Airbnb! In honor of the 25th anniversary of “Scream” as well as the upcoming January 2022 release of the beloved horror franchise’s fifth installment, the vacation rental website is offering three commemorative one-night stays at the Marin County residence that played Stu Macher’s (Matthew Lillard) house in the 1996 Wes Craven-directed classic!
Bookings open up October 12 at 10 a.m. PDT and fast-fingered parties who secure a stay can spend either October 27, 29 or 31 on the premises for a scant $5 – just about the cost of a scary movie rental at the time the movie debuted! Gated and virtually hidden from view to passersby, the promotion presents a rare opportunity for an up-close and personal look at the infamous Victorian where “Scream’s” epic blood bath of a finale took place.
As if spending the night at Stu’s house wasn’t enough, the stay, which is good for up to four guests, also includes a virtual greeting from Deputy Dewey Riley (David Arquette) himself, access to all four “Scream” films (on VHS!) for movie marathon opportunities, a dedicated phone line for making calls to Ghostface and a pantry stocked with ‘90s snacks including the requisite Jiffy Pop. Your visit will also be made complete by a plethora of “Scream”-themed décor dotted throughout the dwelling such as a replica of Stu’s red smoking jacket hanging from a door, a Woodsboro High School pennant plastered on a wall and a Ghostface costume tucked into a bedroom trunk. As part of the promotion, Airbnb will also be making a donation to ’Ween Dream, an all-volunteer nonprofit that provides free Halloween costumes to children in need across the nation. So grab your beer bong and copy of “Prom Night” and get ready for a “one of a kind sleepover!”
