Home Alone was released 28 years last November, but many people learned a shocking new fact about the beloved Christmas movie. On Christmas Day, Seth Rogen dropped a truth bomb about Home Alone and that had the internet shook.
Rogen revealed that the gangster movie in Home Alone is not a real, classic gangster movie, but in fact a fake movie made specifically for Home Alone. Rogen tweeted out: “My entire childhood, I thought the old timey movie that Kevin watches in Home Alone (Angels With Filthy Souls) was actually an old movie.”
So many people had their world flipped upside down with the “new” development.
In Home Alone, Macaulay Culkin watches Angels With Filthy Souls and uses sound clips from the fake movie to mess with the pizza delivery man and to stop Marvin Murchins from robbing his house.
Angels With Filthy Souls was created for Home Alone as the same way Angels With Filthy Souls 2 was made specifically for Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. That’s where Kevin McAllister used the fake movie’s quotes from mobster Johnny to scare off the hotel staff.
The scenes from Angels With Filthy Souls was shot in one day. Many believe the fake movie was inspired by the very real 1938 gangster movie Angels With Dirty Faces starring James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart. Angels With Filthy Souls was included as a featurette in the Home Alone DVD.
Then there is this theory about Home Alone.
Hope you had a Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals.
