Amidst all the frights of a horror movie, it can be easy to allow some finer details to slip past unnoticed. Yet of all genres, it is perhaps horror which tends to litter itself most frequently with Easter eggs to add depth to a given piece. Yet sometimes these can be so subtle as to go completely unnoticed. So here, we’ve compiled a list to point out some of the best.
20. Final Destination hints at the deaths that will occur
Throughout the course of the Final Destination franchise, characters meet some particularly grizzly ends. Yet as elaborate as these deaths often are, they do not come out of thin air. In fact, the films regularly drop hints as to what awaits the unfortunate characters. In the first film, for example, Terry can be seen positioned before an image of a bus – the same vehicle which later kills him. And in the second film, some letters on Evan’s refrigerator spell out the word “eye.” Evan is later killed by a ladder – piercing through that very organ.
19. Pennywise the Clown has his eyes turn from yellow to blue in It
The titular character of Stephen King’s It is a shapeshifter with the ability to alter his appearance. It predominately appears as Pennywise the Dancing Clown, one of the creepiest forms imaginable. In the book, he makes use of the ability to change appearance by having his eyes turn from yellow to blue in order to bait Georgie underground, as Georgie’s brother Bill had the same color of eyes. In the 2017 movie adaption, this ability is also demonstrated by the terrifying clown.
