Why Does the Wilhelm Scream?

Why Does the Wilhelm Scream was established in 2022 as a bi-monthly podcast committed to talking about and championing films of all kinds in a way that straddles the line between irreverent and insightful. As an arts and culture publication, we also provide reviews of current and past films, along with feature essays, and lists.


Why Does the Wilhelm Scream believes in the idea of approaching cinema through a serious, thoughtful lens, while at the same time retaining a gleeful intellectualism and sense of wonder. We seek to bring sharp, honest criticism combined with the ability to laugh at ourselves, and, when necessary, movies, too.
