Tribute to the “Wilhelm Scream”

||

Have you ever wondered if Hollywood studios reuse the same scream effect over and over again? If you have, it’s with good reason.

The infamous death scream – “aaaaaaiiiyyeeeeaaaaaahhhh” – is called the Wilhelm Scream. The scream was actually a stock effect used in the 1951 film Distant Drums; it has been used in over 200 movies since, ranging from Star Wars to Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

But forget history: why read about the Wilhelm Scream when you can see and hear it in all its glory?
