Top 3 Screen Screams

Posted by Claire Dunderman July 15, 2013 0 Comment 6441 views

One of the cheesiest things in movies is a bad screen scream. You just sort of sit and cringe and just pray for it to be over. There are some screams, however, that are truly bloodcurdling and terrifying. Just even thinking about these horrible screen screams give me the shivers.

Alien (1979)

“Oh my God!!” has never been said with more horror. Even though the general feeling of annoyance toward the character is definitely justified, her reaction to the chest-burster alien makes the hairs on your arm stand up.


The Princess Bride (1987)

You know the scene. I really don’t even need to write a description. Honestly, I don’t even think I’ve watched that scene the whole way through, and it definitely scarred me as a kid.


Psycho (1960)

Everyone knows the story. Everyone knows the screen scream. It’s just perfectly terrifying. The most iconic shriek for sure.
