This scream has driven me insane trying to find its origin. The links provided earlier in this thread don't work for me so I've created a new one. This example of this scream is taken directly from The Green Mile
right after the mother of the murdered girls realizes they're missing: http://www.CliffyTX.com/infamous-scream.mp3
Another place it's found: the 0:10 mark in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qhjc3AUq1OY
The part following immediately after
the snippet I posted above is mirrored here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QL6qE4J2VI
The Green Mile is the most recent (in my memory) to feature this stock scream but highly doubt it is the absolute most recent.
I don't believe that this originated in the video game or 1997 clip mentioned in an above post because I could almost swear
I heard it in the 70's. If not then, then very early 80's. It is literally driving me insane trying to find its definitive origin. sigh Talk about bumping an ancient thread, huh?
