Director Michael Stephenson made a big splash a year or so back with Best Worst Movie, which looked at the enduring Troll 2 fanbase. Now he’s back to put his magnifying glass over another horror-centric lifestyle choice in The American Scream. The documentary is playing the ongoing Fantastic Fest in Austin and has made a big splash with its depiction of American families who prepare, and launch, their own local haunted houses.
And now Brad (Mr. Disgusting) writes in with his review. He feels like the doc goes through the numbers a bit but is ultimately wholly worthwhile. “While it lacks punch, there’s a profound sense of joy in watching these hard working individuals get the much-deserved spotlight they long for. Many want to be remembered, and Chiller has landed them an eternal place in horror lore.”
Click here for the full review! Chiller TV airs The American Scream on October 28th at 8PM ET.
