“HOW’D IT GET BURNED?” is just one question we’ll be asking in this gallery of verbose movie shrieks.
We all like to have a good scream every now and again – it’s cathartic and, in times of urgency, necessary. In film, it’s the most effective way to convey a wide range of emotions and any number of contextual points to the audience; danger, anger, pain, sorrow and so on.
However, for the sake of making everyone’s life a little bit easier, I’ll be limiting this list to screams that feature recognisable language. This is to ensure that we don’t get bogged down in the meaty exhortations of Stallone, Schwarzenegger and the many B-movie scream queens contending for a spot on such a list.
Please note that some, undoubtedly, will earn multiple spots on this list – can you imagine if Nicolas Cage failed to feature at least twice? On that note, I should also mention that the quality of the film itself is not what shall be judged, so please do expect some dreadful scenes and some even worse displays of acting. You have been warned.
