The very quiet and very clean town of Woodsboro, CA is no stranger to tragedy. Maureen Prescott, wife, mother and failed actress, was raped and murdered a year ago. Now two teenagers have been brutally disposed of and the town is upheaval. No one feels it more than Maureen's daughter Sydney, who survives an attack from Ghostface. But that doesn't stop the bodies from dropping, and what better place for that to happen than during a party at a secluded farm house, where Sydney discovers the killer is none other than her boyfriend
The horror genre was bleeding out before Scream came along. The franchises were fatigued and if a film wasn’t going straight to video, its box office was pretty dismal. Kevin Williamson’s slasher/mystery breathed new life with its self-aware characters spewing hip dialogue while referencing the classics. Like Halloween (1978), which was a major influence for the film, Scream was not expected to become the phenomenon it turned out to be, thanks to clever counterprogramming and word of mouth. It slayed the box office during sleigh season and went on to gross over 100 million dollars so of course audience would be screaming again soon.
And Drew Barrymore’s wig is more horrorfying than Jamie Lee Curtis’ Halloween II (1981) wig.

Back in 2015, all I had a measly far away shot of Stu's House taken from the road. But thanks to the Scream Comes Home (2018) Event, fans were given property access to explore the outside and inside of this beautiful abode. The house was built in the early 90s by a couple who both passed away before it was completed. The Scream production crew were the first to utilize it...
The original button is still there...
In the movie, it appears the tv/family room is off to the left when you enter the front door, but the room that was actually used is in the back of the house past the kitchen...
This is the room that is actually to the left of the front door...
