The word “sick” comes up often in movies and TV shows, often accompanied by a picture of a bloodied, spattered, screaming, screaming girl.
But for the Screaming Kids, a young group of teenagers who live in the Washington, D.C., suburb of Mount Vernon, the word has become a verb.
In a recent episode of their Netflix series, Screaming, they were the first to utter it when the characters from a series of films, including Screaming Mary, Screamin’ Tom, and Screamin’, all scream “I’m sick.”
The series, written by the Scream Girls, features an interracial lesbian couple who meet a boy, but the show has been viewed nearly 1 million times on Netflix alone.
It has also been translated into multiple languages, including French, Italian, German, Japanese, and Russian.
The Scream Girls were not originally inspired by the characters in the horror movie Scream, which features a character who uses a bloodthirsty demon named “the Screaming” to torture his victims.
“We wanted to be able to say ‘I’m screaming,’ ” said Lauren Gomes, one of the Screamers.
The series is set in the fictional Mount Vernon neighborhood of Mount Sterling, where young teens have become fascinated by “creepy-looking girls” that can scream “the scream.” “
The Screaming Girls’ series premiered in May on Netflix, where it has been watched more than 7 million times, and the series has been nominated for an Emmy Award.

The Screaming characters in Screamin, a series starring Laura Dern, have become one of many voices that have spoken in the series.
In Screamin , one of these voices, a man named “Mr. Screaming,” uses a chainsaw to murder his girlfriend’s mother.
In other series, the Screamings have used other names: Miss Screaming (Miss Dern), Screaming Miss Dern (Miss Gomes), and Screaming Mama Screaming Dern.
“That’s just the way it is. “
If it’s scary, scream, cry, and it’s loud, it can be loud,” Gomes said.
“That’s just the way it is.
If you don’t scream, you’re going to die.”
Gomes’ mom, who also is a Screaming fan, is not only a Screamer, but has been to the Screamin movie multiple times and even filmed Screamin and Scream, an episode of the show that is based on the film.
She said she grew up loving Screamin but never really believed in the Screams.
“I think that it was kind of the same way I was growing up,” she said.
After high school, Gomes enrolled in film school, but was only interested in making movies.
“When I got into school, it was mostly movies, because I didn’t have a lot of experience in the world of films,” she recalled.
“So I had a very limited budget and the whole film school experience was very grueling, and I had to take two to three weeks off between film classes.”
Goms said she got a great film-making experience from her film-school experience, and decided to pursue a career in film after her time at school ended.
“In film school I made a few films, and in high school I started making a few more films, then my career started to take off,” Goms explained.
“At the end of high school it was all I really wanted to do: go to film school and work in film.”
The “sickle” phrase has become an integral part of the series, and Gomes and the Screamed Girls are among the fans of the term who have used it in conversations.
“For us, it’s really important to be loud, to be screamin’,” Gomes told The Washington Post.
“Saying ‘I am sick’ and ‘I want to scream’ is one of those words that people have said to us.
“There’s a big stigma out there that you have to be sick to make money,” she explained. “
“[It’s] very hard to make it in the business because everyone is afraid of being sick, so I think people want to be seen to be cool and not sick. “

They want to look cool and scream.”
