Everybody knows the names of famous actors in movies, but there are stars behind the scenes that aren't human. I'm talking of course about stock sound effects.

A famous one is the Wilhelm scream (see link) but there are hundred of others. With this app, you simply watch the movie while sounds are sensed and cross referenced to the sound effects catalog same as with music finding apps.

When a standard sound effect is detected, the screen will light up with, for instance "Wilhelm scream" and show a Wikipedia style page with all the movies it's been featured in, the story behind it and of course a button that you can hit that plays it.

       What you're looking for there is a cinephile. I knew a couple of movie geeks who could list the Wilhelm Scream by title and time.

       What I always seem to pick up on are movies that borrow sounds from video games. The 'Doom' door opening one is always particularly popular.
