The Wilhelm Scream Compilation

by chrisofduke • 7,245,820 views

A video I found several years ago, with clips of films using the scream that is found in most George Lucas films... *NOTE** I did not make this video. Found it several years ago online....

This scream is my friends notification sound >~<

I love how these range from being killed by a giant ant to merely falling out of a rowing boat.

I guess you could say it was a....gi-ant.

Why is it such a popular stock sound effect? It doesn't even sound like a real scream!
Report spam or abuse
Lulz those are about the best replies I could hope for XD I was trolling... But yeah, for the sake of actually answering, it's a stock sound effect that I personally don't really like.. Clearly Hollywood does

This is like an inside joke for filmmakers. I can imagine them laughing their ass off in the editing room.

Okay, I call hax on the Toy Story example.

Yeah I got that a little bit after the Toy Story example.  I tend to comment on something that's happened at a certain point in a video before viewing the whole thing.
Report spam or abuse
lol.  I just heard this scream in the motorcycle chase scene in Captain America The First Avenger.  I love how this is still being used.

Even better: It was used in the opening cutscene for Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm.

Its a on going joke in the Hollywood inner circle for producers and film directors to spot the sound effect when watching movies.

I never ever noticed this scream and now it`s the standard scream for everything! You would`ve thought they could make individual screams- I mean it`s a scream, not hard to do!

heard this in Batman vs Robin recently haha

Just watched Wrong Turn 3, I laughed out loud when the hillbilly wilhelm-screamed when the car crashed into the tree at the end. It was a pretty ridiculous movie anyway.

What?! It's an actual thing?! A stock 'manly' scream. Woah.

+Ruth Mckay It has nothing to do with a "stock 'manly' scream." It's just an inside joke filmmakers have that has become a legacy.

Wow guess George Lucas loves his Willheim he probably wakes up in the morning hears the Willheim scream and nods his head, "Yeah that right there, that's what I'm talking about... Time to shoot a movie!"

Does anyone also know of that laugh sound effect used for little kids that shows up in many movies? Usually when little kids are running past people? It was featured in a lot of McDonald's commercials too.

If you had Trillian messenger back in the day, you'd also hear it when a contact said 'lol'. It sounds tacky when you hear it in live action and you know it's just stock.

John ran his fingers through his disheveled hair. He looked at the stack of movies on his desk, each of them marked with either an N or a P, standing for Negative or Positive. "It just doesn't make any sense..." John said aloud, frustration tearing at his mind. "This screaming, it's like... It's like it's haunting me." It all started ten years ago, at the young age of twenty. John first heard that blasted scream. He realized that he began hearing it more and more, it becoming more and more apparent in his mind that something weird was going on with these movies. He started buying the disks for every movie he could find. He watched closely, listening for the scream. If he heard the scream, he would mark it Positive. If not, he marked it Negative. It started consuming his life. He found himself doing nothing in his free time but searching for movies with that scream in it. "I swear, Matthew, it's like something's messing with my brain!" John told his friend. "John, calm down. Nothing is messing with you. It's just your imagination. Remember when you'd make up stories when you were young? You're creative! You just need to learn what's real and what's not." Matthew sighed. "Look, Matt, you've told me the same thing over and over. I don't buy that. I swear I HEAR it." Matthew shook his head and stood up from the table, throwing his coffee away and getting ready to head out the door. "Yeah, Whatever, Jo. Call me when you're sane." Matthew laughed. John just sat there with his head in his hands. He didn't know how long he had been there, but when he finally snapped out of his depressed trance, it was dark outside. He noticed that some people were giving him weird looks. He must've been there for a while. He threw his coffee away and headed home, the disks still on his mind. -Short Story By Rose :D Hope you like it! Hehe it just popped into my head and I honestly liked it so I just went with the flow.

why is this a stock sound, anyway? wouldn't it just be easier and less expensive to just have the person who's supposed to be screaming do the scream?
Report spam or abuse
It's usually used for bit characters that die off screen (usually by falling, in my experience). So it might actually be cheaper to edit in this than bring the mike in close enough for the guy to scream, and maybe get it right. Or just FASTER (which is cheaper in its own way) since it's usually used for characters who don't matter much.

+Rynjinivar None of the sound you hear in a film is made during filming. It's ALL (including speech) dubbed on after in a sound studio. The Wilhelm Scream is used as an in-joke by particular Hollywood editors to amuse themselves.
