Yesterday's epic skeleton battle scene in Game of Thrones

For the special effects nerd in me this was the coolest scene in yesterday's Game of Thrones' finale. Not because it was particularly brilliant, but because it reminded me of Ray Harryhausen and his skeletons in Jason and the Argonauts. WARNING: THIS CLIP CONTAINS A MAJOR SPOILER.

I found myself cheering and going "wow, this is so coooool!" all the time. Here's the scene stop-motion scene by Harryhausen, which was a major breakthrough in the history of cinema.

Pet peeve, how are those skeletons making vocal noises? Why do they always sound like some sort of animal in every movie/show too?
