The scream that you've often heard in Hollywood Movies

Did you ever notice that some screaming sounds in movies were almost alike or it's a deja-vu?
It's not deja-vu, in fact at times, filmmakers use the same screaming sound effects in certain scenes. It's called the Wilheim scream.

Play the clip here.

Like the recent Peter Jackson's King Kong, the scream appears during the brontosaur stampede, as a sailor is knocked off a cliff.

Same as the film Batman Returns, the Wilheim scream did appear in the film when Batman punches and grabs an enemy and hurls him towards a railing.

Find out more which films that had used Wilheilm scream stock sound effects in Wikipedia.
