The Howie scream (also known as the Howie Long scream or Screams 3; Man, Gut-wrenching Scream And Fall Into Distance) is a frequently-used film and television stock sound effect for a scream. Believed to have originated in 1980 as a sound effect in the movie The Ninth Configuration, the sound effect is featured as Screams 3; Man, Gut-wrenching Scream And Fall Into Distance in a Hollywood Edge sound library called The Premiere Edition. Often compared to the Wilhelm scream, its prominence in a number of movies has given it a few nicknames such as Howie Long Scream, in reference to Howie Long's death scene in the movie Broken Arrow.
