The American Scream

The American Scream is a very well done documentary about amateur 'home haunters'. These spirited individuals spend most of the year getting their houses ready for Halloween by turning their yards into haunted attractions. This subject matter is very dear to my heart, as I have tortured my children for many years by dominating their Halloween and forcing them to dress up in all sorts of horrible outfits for my amusement. Every year they would cry and beg and plead to be fairy princesses. Instead, they were sea-monsters, giant rats, full-grown headless men, mummies, the clown from Poltergeist, Samara from The Ring, several presidential candidates, and zombie prom queens. I let them be princesses one year. It was a disaster, as the weather was bitterly cold and they had to wear coats to trick-or-treat which covered up their dreadful, store-bought, pink and sparkly costumes. Everyone learned a valuable lesson.
