10 Examples of People Yelling “Noooooooo!” in Movies

burbs-nooo

Posted by on

One thing’s for sure — no matter the genre, no matter the medium, no piece of entertainment is immune to the glories of a character screaming “NOOOOOOOOO!” into the air like they just don’t care. Daughter died? Facing down a tidal wave? Watching the Sun explode? Check out these 10 examples of people letting their “NOOOOOOOs” fly.

10. Evil Dead 2

This 1987 Sam Raimi classic helped put screaming “Noooooo!” on the map. This is how you end a movie, people.


9. A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warrior 

The filmmakers behind Freddy’s third installment knew that when all else fails, having someone scream “Nooooooooo!” will at least fill up space in your movie. Here it’s mute Joey using his “dream voice” to kill Mr. Krueger once and for all. Or does he?


8. Van Helsing

This 2004 bomb finds Hugh Jackman getting early practice for his “no!” screaming ways, only this time in wolf form.


7. Muppets from Space

In one of the many Muppet movies made after the death of creator Jim Henson, Gonzo seems to be speaking for all us when he lets out this emotional howl.


6. The ‘Burbs

Before Tom Hanks became the biggest movie star in the world, he was just a guy who had the comedy chops to make screaming to the heavens hilarious.

5. Pet Cemetery 

The film adaptation of Stephen King’s novel wasn’t a critical hit, but it did wisely use a character screaming “no!” not once, not twice, but three times. Go big or go home, people.


4. X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine 

Sometimes you film a character screaming “no!” in one movie, and love it so much you create a spinoff just so he can do it two more times.


3. Jungle Fever

This 1992 Spike Lee Joint brought the scream to art house cinema. Sometimes you just don’t feel like being propositioned by a prostitute. Or if you’re Wesley Snipes, paying your taxes. NSFW:


2. Death Wish V: The Face of Death

By the time this fifth installment of the Death Wish franchise came out, star Charles Bronson was 72 years old, and had run out of ways to kill people. This is a prime example of that.


1. Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi 

Sometimes screaming “no” runs in the family. As demonstrated in these two clips, one perhaps the most classic “no” in movie history. The other, not so much. And finally, because Lucas can’t stop tinkering with/screwing up the original franchise, Darth Vader now unleashes his signature “no!” on the recent Return of the Jedi Blu-ray.  Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to look skyward and express our distaste vocally.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
