The American Scream focuses on the sleepy town of Fairhaven, Massachusetts which, every Halloween, erupts with the most ambitiously creative spookery in the world. 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 film puts three of these horrific households into the spotlight to uncover the triumphs and tragedies that come with carrying the blackened banner of true Halloween spirit.
