The 'Scream' House Is On Airbnb For Halloween & It's Only $5 If You Survive The Night (PHOTOS)

You can spend Halloween at the original house from Scream, where there'll be Ghostface masks in every window and creepy phone calls coming in throughout the night.

What could possibly go wrong?

Airbnb is listing the original house from the movie for just $5 a night, and you can book it for yourself if you have a US address and a bit of luck.

The original house from the movie is located in Northern California, and Airbnb recently bought it and updated it to look exactly as it did in the Wes Craven movie from 1996.

Well, it's almost exactly the same. Airbnb did make a few tweaks, including the addition of a stained-glass window with the murderous Ghostface peeking out from the second floor.

Airbnb installed a landline in the home that connects directly to the masked killer, so you can expect to hear from him throughout the night — whether you want to or not.

There are also a few Ghostface masks peeking in windows here and there throughout the home, just in case you thought you'd be able to get a good night's sleep during your stay.

Airbnb also hired Sheriff Dewey himself, David Arquette, to virtually greet visitors when they check-in.

"As your host, I'll be keeping a watchful eye on guests to ensure no one gets surprised by an unexpected plot twist," he says in the greeting. "Trust me, horror movies always keep it interesting, for better or for worse."

The place is set up for a movie marathon in the living room, where you can watch all four Scream movies on a boxy old TV with a VHS player.

Of course, the movies might look better on your 21st-century phone, but if you're nostalgic for rewinding a VHS, go for it!

Booking requests open on October 12 at 1 p.m. EST (10 a.m. PST) for the low price of $5 a night, and travel plans are up to you. Only three nights are available so there are no guarantees, but it's worth a stab, right?
