Scream baby!

There is a VERY famous scream that hundreds of movies have used and unless you know about it you probably dont even realise.

Its called the WILHELM SCREAM and below is a compilation of the scream in use by sound editors.

It would appear that there exists a mystery of who actually produced the scream but it does go way back to 1953 and has been used ever since - sadly however the movie producers are now saying that as people are becoming more aware they will stop using it.

Im VERY surprised that given what we are able and capable of producing today that they would use something so old anyway, but its also a tribute too I guess!?

Hungry for more sound effects - check out this compilation!
