‘The American Scream’ Poster

Magic Stone Productions has released the first poster for The American Scream, the latest from Best Worst Movie director Michael Stephenson, which just premiered at Fantastic Fest. This documentary follows three Massachussets families who run their own homemade haunted houses every Halloween. Take a look at the one-sheet for this new film, debuting on the Chiller TV network Sunday, October 28.

The American Scream Poster

October 31 has always been the target for mischief, monsters and - above all - fun. But this dedication to Halloween mayhem isn't just carried out by costumed children and prank-crazed teens. From the suburbs to the cities, there's a tremendous world of devoted adults who spend the better part of each year transforming their homes into spine-tingling, heart-stopping Houses of Horror... or at least they give it their best shot. Beyond all the fog machines, plastic fangs, fake blood, coffins and cobwebs, there's a story about passionate die-hards who live to scare.

The American Scream was released October 5th, 2012.

                        I'm guessing he is more of a toughness fighter than a technical insanely flexible fighter like me?

                            @SherlockHolmes2009 That's fine... I will see if I can't find a video of it or have someone tape me doing it to someone and send it to your phone... I will say also when a big guy is on top and holding you down like that, he can be very open for kimuras...

                              @mcleve02 I think I can envision it but I know ill screw it up unless someone demonstrates it on me. I hope it works cuz man my friend kicked my ass, we went for like 5 minutes and had to stay on this bed matress and if we went off we had to stop and get back on

                                @SherlockHolmes2009 hmmm. try this sweep... With you right leg lock in rubber guard, to hold their neck and shoulders down to your chest... with your left hand reach underneath his thigh and grab behind the knee... then flip your weight over counter clockwise... if you can envision that... if he is using weight and size with no technique, that sweep should work nicely... it uses his own weight to flip him over...
