This is interesting... a scream was recorded and used in a movie in 1951 and then added to Warner Bros.'s sound effects library. A few sound editors have turned it into sort of an inside joke or something and use the sound whenever they can in movies. It's kind of cool, but on the other hand, explains why screams all sound the same. I mean, when you try to run over people in Carmageddon (a video game), they scream and I've heard that same scream in TV ads. Maybe it's that a scream is hard to make distinct from another scream, so it becomes pointless to waste the money recording new ones? Link is in title.
