Scream Super Fans Have Rented the House from the Original Film to Throw One Killer Halloween Party

If you want to bring a little more authenticity to your Halloween celebrations this year, you can do so in the very house where the final scenes of Wes Craven’s tongue-in-cheek horror classic Scream took place. Two horror movie buffs—producer and director Anthony Masi and movie prop and memorabilia expert Nate Ragon—rented out the house (where Matthew Lillard's character, Stu, lived in the movie) near Santa Rosa, California, for the weekend of Saturday, October 27 to throw an event called Scream Comes Home.

The event began on Kickstarter, where the creators were asking for a total of $50,000, which was reached with plenty of time to spare. The event includes admittance to the house’s grounds, access to the team’s Scream memorabilia displays (including screen-used masks), a screening of the movie, and, for some lucky fans with enough disposable income, a party and sleepover in the house.

All of this is available by pledging to different tiers on the event’s Kickstarter page. Though many of the packages for overnight stays are sold out (they were $500 to $1250), there are still plenty of packages available that include access to the house grounds for the day and a seat for the Scream screening. For pledges of $350 and higher, you'll also score a spot on the Woodsboro bus tour, which will drive fans around to some of the other filming locations from the movie like Sydney's house and the high school from the film.

There’s even a pledge that will get you a phone call from Roger Jackson—the voice of Ghostface in the four Scream movies—completely in character just to terrify you, much as he did to Neve Campbell back in 1996.

The tiers are selling out fast, so if you’re inclined to spend your Halloween on the sacred grounds of horror film history, head to the Scream Comes Home Kickstarter now.

The Office Star Angela Kinsey Would Love to Do a Reunion Special

Whenever a classic TV show is brought back for a revival, it usually splits the fanbase in half. While some people are happy to see their favorite characters return, others are worried about the series coming back in lackluster fashion. And when it comes to the idea of a potential reboot of The Office, the series' cast is just as split.

Steve Carell has been very public about not wanting NBC to bring the show back, but Angela Kinsey is siding with co-stars John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, and Ellie Kemper about welcoming a potential return to Scranton. The 48-year-old actress, who portrayed Angela Martin on the series, recently spoke with PopCulture.com, confirming she’d love to revisit the show.

"I would definitely be up for a reunion," Kinsey said. "I know a few cast members have talked about a special reunion episode to see where everyone is at. I would love that!"

Although many are torn on the idea of bringing The Office back, most fans would certainly be curious enoug to tune in and see what's going on with the Dunder Mifflin crew. Kinsey is no exception, saying, “I would love to know where these people are! I loved the show, I still love the show. I think it really holds up. I'm so thrilled that new audiences are finding it, so I would love that!"

Will it ever happen? It's hard to say. But while we wait to see if any official announcement is made, you can at least still binge The Office on Netflix and try to imagine what creepy thing Cousin Mose is doing these days.

Harry Potter Fans Don’t Want to See the Movies Rebooted, Surprising No One

Although the Harry Potter franchise has one of the most dedicated fan bases in the world, that doesn’t mean fans are ready to see the series rebooted just yet. Yes, that would mean more movies to feed one’s obsession, but the general consensus is that it would be entirely too soon. Don’t believe us? A new poll might just prove it.

ComingSoon.net asked more than 2000 Potterheads if Warner Bros. should reboot the Harry Potter movie series, and a whopping 72 percent said they’re against it. The website also asked fans if reboots were made, how they should be done. Of those polled, 41 percent voted for it to be a direct sequel about Harry’s son, 35 percent voted for a spinoff TV series, 13 percent wanted another Fantastic Beasts spinoff, and a measly 11 percent showed support for a remake of all eight original films.

While it doesn’t look like a reboot will be in the works anytime soon (J.K. Rowling’s representatives just debunked a report about a TV series), that doesn’t mean it’s impossible for the future. Even star Daniel Radcliffe has entertained the idea, saying he believes he won’t be the last Potter portrayal he’ll see in his lifetime. But as long as Rowling and fans are against it, we probably won’t have to worry about it for a while.
