The Little Rock Film Festival's Argenta Film Series presents a family-friendly documentary this October, just in time for Halloween.
The American Scream (2012) Directed by Michael Paul Stephenson
Every Halloween, sleepy Fairhaven, Massachusetts 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 AMERICAN SCREAM follows three of these horrific households to uncover the triumphs and tragedies that come with carrying the blackened banner of true Halloween spirit.
***Director Michael Stephenson will be in attendance.
