The Howie Long scream

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. 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.[1] It appears to have originated from a fight scene in the 1980 film The Ninth Configuration.[2]
