However big of a movie buff you might claim to be, catching every hidden message that directors strategically place in movies is close to impossible. Directors swoop in references of their previous or upcoming projects or even hints to what will happen in the next scene, but no matter how closely you look, it’s pretty hard to spot every quick-shot secret. Here we have unraveled some of the most iconic hidden messages in movies that only true fans can notice.
The Godfather is a masterpiece when it comes to classic Hollywood movies. It wouldn’t make sense if there were no secret messages or hints within the movie. One of these messages was associated with the oranges. You may think that oranges that recurringly appear in The Godfather are just there for visual appeal. But, that’s not the case. The oranges are there for a sinister reason. Whenever you see the citrus on the screen, it’s a bright hint that some character of the movie is about to die. Whether Sonny or Don Carleone himself, the fruit always appears when someone is about to go.
Horror movies were raging during the 80s. One movie that really outshone them all was the psychological thriller, Psycho. There was one scene in the movie that everyone now pauses and watches closely. If you’ve seen the movie, you know what we’re talking about. In one scene, Norman Bate appears on screen with a hint of his mother’s face superimposed over his. The reason behind this was to show that it was Norma who actually committed all the heinous murders.
Recreation of classic movie scenes has always been a part of Hollywood. If you’ve seen the movie, The Passengers most of you will realize that the bar they’ve created is oddly familiar. Why is that so, one may think? Everything about the scene, including the bar’s design and color, the decor, and even the bartender’s uniform, takes inspiration from the legendary movie-The Shining. What a great way to give the classic movie a shoutout!
