If spending the most frightening night of the year being chased by a masked-up killer sounds like your idea of a thrill, you can actually head to the Scream house this Halloween.

Twenty-five years after the slasher movie first appeared on the big screen, the haunting whodunnit has been brought back to life in northern California. Airbnb has got hold of the house where it was filmed, and it could be yours for the night.

The stay begins with a virtual check-in from ‘the sheriff’, apparently, which is a pretty ominous start to a weekend getaway. The decor isn’t low-key, either, with grisly touches like knife marks and bloodstains dotted throughout the property. Lovely.

You can also call Ghostface directly from the house, and ‘haunting happenings’ are promised. Sounds like a pretty frightening sleepover to us.

There’s something quite charming about the fact that the hosts have included all four Scream films on VHS, in case you just fancy an immersive movie night. And there are also ‘classic 1990s snacks’ available, if you can stomach them.

Superfans of the franchise will be pleased to know that if you’re brave enough to stay the night, you’ll leave with a handful of merch, including a DVD bundle of the first four Scream films, Woodsboro High School gear, posters and more. 

Tempted? Booking opens tomorrow – and you can find out more here

Fancy something a little less terrifying? Why not stay in this adorable Winnie the Pooh cottage.

Also: you can now holiday like 007 at Ian Fleming’s luxury Jamaican retreat.
