Scream star David Arquette will virtually host a limited number of guests renting one of the homes used in the original 1996 horror film over Halloween weekend.

The Tomales, Northern California estate famously doubled for the fictional Woodsboro house of killer Stu Macher (Matthew Lillard) in Wes Craven’s iconic film – and was the backdrop for the film’s final massacre.

Fans can request the $5 Airbnb booking from October 12 at 1pm EST and up to four guests can stay in the mansion for one night only on October 27, October 29, or October 31.

The 13-year-old online marketplace platform warned this is not a contest and daring guests will be responsible for their own travel accommodations.

Lucky renters can binge watch the first four Scream films on VHS with snacks like Jiffy Pop, ice cream with Reddi-whip, and pizza provided.

Fans – who might hear from Ghostface on the landline phone – will also receive prizes like the Scream DVDs, posters, and other memorabilia.

Renters can see knife marks on the doors to the garage and look beneath the same bed Woodsboro Sheriff Dwight ‘Dewey’ Riley (Arquette) checked in the film. 

The mansion was the setting for the bloodcurdling finale to Scream, which saw Stu  host a wild party for his classmates, after a serial killer started bumping off their friends.

 A troubled Sidney Prescott and her boyfriend Billy Loomis (Skeet Ulrich) went upstairs to get intimate but shortly afterwards he was stabbed by Ghostface.

Sidney stumbled downstairs and after taking a gun owned by police officer Dewey (David Arquette) is left baffled when her friends Stu and Randy (Jamie Kennedy) both accuse each other of being the killer.

She then finds Billy injured but alive, he then takes the gun and says ‘we all go a little crazy sometimes’ and shoots Randy, revealing he faked his injuries with corn syrup and that he and Stu are the killers.  

They plan to kill Sidney and frame her father Neil for the murder spree, while also admitting they murdered her mother Maureen for having an affair with Billy’s father.

A bloody struggle ensues with Stu being stabbed by Billy and Billy eventually shot through the head by Sidney.

‘Protecting the town of Woodsboro is my life’s duty, and I’ve certainly developed a knack for escaping Ghostface,’ Riley said in a statement.

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

The 50-year-old Daytime Emmy Award nominee famously portrayed Riley in all five films of the horror franchise, including Scream hitting UK/US theaters January 14.

Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett’s fifth flick also stars David’s ex-wife Courteney Cox as novelist Gale Weathers Riley and Neve Campbell as self-help author Sidney Prescott.
