First it was free, then it was popculture
Its a free stock scream so it was easy for B-movies to use but then those people who grew up watching B movies and loving them started using it as a tribute, then it became kind of an injoke. Lastly general people figured it out and now it's iconic.
It's a joke.
If you want the scream to be ruined forever, here is a compilation.
In the pre-internet age it was an in joke for sound mixers, now it's obligatory.
It's not seriously used lol. Like if you watch a drama, no one is gonna use it. But for a comedy or action flick, its a good comedic throwback lol
It's used so people can chuckle and say to their friend "Wilhelm scream, hey...hey...that's the Wilhelm scream, I'll tell you about it later. It's a pretty famous scream. It was in all the Star Wars."
It's a joke sound designers use to help ruin movies/shows/games.
I don't know but it's really annoying when you're aware of it.
Inside joke that became a sign of laziness.
Because it is.
Because Sound Enginners are idiots who put a played out joke ahead of doing good work ( sorry, but the proof is there) . Get a new joke or better yet, do your fucking job.
Someone once said it secretly keeps Larry King alive.
The same reason memes and other references are repeated incessantly. Some people somehow enjoy them after hearing them dozens of times.
I love hearing the Wilhelm Scream! I get a little jolt of joy every time I hear it. Same with seeing ‘a113’.
Boom mic operator 3 probably isn't very good at screaming. It's not as easy as you think to make a good scream.
Because it's funny.
