  • The Wilhelm Scream

    Ever heard of this? The Wilhelm Scream is a popular sound effect that's appeared in countless action films over the years.*

    I found this "fan tribute" on Youtube. It makes for 3 and half minutes of solid entertainment:

    Funny stuff.

    For real sticklers, the original appears in this vid:

    *Wikipedia offers the following brief overview:

    I've noticed this everytime I've heard it, but no one else seems to. It was in all of the LOTR movies, the new star wars movies, and I think in Spiderman as well.

      The lack of wider-spread recognition is all the more remarkable when you consider that Jedi, Revenge of the Sith, Raiders, Temple of Doom, And Return of the King all feature two Wilhelms a piece. Jedi even crams two into a single scene.

      I just watched the opening gun battle of The Wild Bunch to verify the presence of a Wilhelm Scream. Unmistakable.

              Whoops! My Bad.

              Here it is again:

              If this link doesn't work, go to Youtube and search for Wilhelm Screm. There's a vid simply titled "The Wilhelm Scream" that's 3:35 in length.

              Much of the material overlaps with what you saw in the second vid.

                  Star wars. (when luke shoots a stormtrooper off the light bridge)

                  On that note:
                  Why is it in old Westerns, when white cowboys get shot and fall off a cliff, they all go, AAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!! But when Native Americans or other minorities get shot and fall off a cliff, they all go: "Aiiiiiieeeeeeeeee!"

                  ????

                  LOL
