    Editors and directors use Wilhelm on purpose these days, as a sort of industry inside-joke. Google it, it`s pretty interesting.

    Great taste ICN. That reminds me of the Tarzan-ish scream, first featured (from what I can remember) in an advertisement, ironically, for Six Flag`s (then) new ride, "Scream..." now you hear it all over the place.

    My favorite recycled sound effect is the *swish* from the game Magic Carpet. Whenever a missle or a really fast plane flies by: *swish*

    I`d say this effect is used even more often ;)

    I take it back, maybe it is real, but, I`m still not convinced this is a Wilhelm scream, the scream that I know is a lot longer and sounds more like if you fell off a cliff and screamed until you hit the bottom.

    "Psht it is almost like Rappers nowadays taking beats from old 70`s songs and making them hits."

    It`s called sampling, and is the basis of hip-hop production, you just don`t see it too often these days because buying the copyrights to samples is too expensive and lawsuits are often.

    To everyone saying "it sounds added"

    No poo Sherlock. It was added. By the filmmakers.

    It sounds added because they don`t just have someone re-record the scream exactly the same each time, they use the original, and add it into the moving in post-production.

    There`re probably dozens of sound effects like this (`stock` sounds, perhaps) that`re used over and over again. There`s a female scream that I hear in almost every movie/TV show with a screaming female.

    The Wilhelm Scream isn`t lazy directors, it`s like a tribute thing, kind of like an inside joke now. Theres a website that counts how much movies it`s in and there is a lot of movies, even tons of recent ones that use it.

    It`s not laziness you morons. It`s a challenge between competing directors and sound technicians. The challenge is to get the famous sound into every movie you make without anyone noticing. It`s actually a very hard thing to do because it`s an old recording and sounds very out of place in modern films. So, EVERYONE ON YOUTUBE TRY TO DO IT. Betcha can`t do it without anyone noticing.
