Magic Stone Productions (Magic Stone) and Brainstorm Media along with Chiller Films are pleased to announce that their feature length documentary The American Scream, called “a warm, emotional and touching documentary” (Eric Vespe, Ain’t It Cool News), will open in Austin theaters and will also be available through in cities where it does not have a current theatrical engagement.

November 9-14 – Alamo Drafthouse (Austin and Houston, TX) Please check theater listings for full run dates and times.

The film will continue to play in theaters and film festivals throughout the next few months. For additional screening information please visit The American Scream Facebook page.

The American Scream is also available through, a platform that allows people to choose the films they want to see at theater and create their own screenings for their community. Go here to request a screening in your town – (note, the film will not be available through Tugg where there are current theatrical engagements).

The American Scream is the latest documentary from director Michael Paul Stephenson, following his critically acclaimed Best Worst Movie.  The world premiere of The American Scream took place at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas where it was heralded as “enormously uplifting” (Matt Barone, Complex) and received the award for Best Picture in the Documentary Features category.

The American Scream is a touching documentary that follows three Halloween-obsessed households as they transform their homes into neighbor-terrifying supernatural wonderlands.  Endless styrofoam tombstones and backyard beasts come courtesy of a few supremely dedicated local “home haunters” who’ve devoted their lives to the art of handmade monster-making.

The American Scream is an original documentary for NBCUniversal’s Chiller network.  The film will also play at film festivals throughout November.  For information on the film and tickets, visit
