So can I call and scream right now?

No, it’s after January 21, 2021. We are done recording new screams for now. We are seeking a new owner or operator that can continue to operate the phone line.

What about my privacy?

Read the Privacy Policy for more details.

Why should I call you?

To scream! You might be unhappy, terrified, frustrated, or elated. All of these are perfectly good reasons to call and record yourself screaming.

Can I do this in public?

Please do this in public. Except not, perhaps, in a crowded theater.

Who made this?

A teacher, occasional artist, and generally rather quiet person named Chris Gollmar.
