#3 It. Pennywise Secretly Watched His Victims Throughout The Whole Film. Sometimes, He Appears In The Most Unexpected Places. Neither The Characters Nor The Viewers Notice This
Reddit user Niiue, one of the moderators of the Movie Details community, spoke with Funscrape about the hidden details in movies and whether directors place them in the hope that the audience will find them.
“Most details are definitely there for the audience to find, but I think a lot of it also just comes down to creative people wanting to have fun with their projects. Speaking from experience here (though I work on video games, not movies), it really is a lot of fun to add little Easter eggs and whatnot just for the hell of it,” Niiue said.
We were also interested to know which production houses and directors are most adept at hiding Easter eggs in their movies.
“Besides the obvious choices like Pixar, I think Edgar Wright is another example of someone great at hiding details in his movies. Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim, and Hot Fuzz are the first ones that come to mind in this regard. You’ll find that his movies tend to get featured on this subreddit a lot, which I think reflects his skill as a director.”

Moderator Niiue also told us all about their personal favorite hidden movie details. “Personally, I liked the way Scott Pilgrim had a recurring number motif tied to the Evil Exes. For those who aren’t familiar with the story, the gist of it is that the protagonist has to fight his new girlfriend’s six ex-boyfriends (and one ex-girlfriend) in order to continue their relationship, as a parody of the bosses fought in a typical video game,” they summed up the plot of the movie.
“In the scenes before each fight, there are numerous references to the corresponding Evil Ex; for instance, right before the fight with Lucas Lee, the main characters pass by two crossing signs with an X design, a reference to Lucas being the second Evil Ex. These kinds of references even continue after the Evil Ex in question is introduced, such as Lucas Lee saying (twice) that it will take “two minutes to kick [Scott’s] ass”, and later fighting Scott accompanied by his stunt doubles.”
They continued: “Sometimes these motifs even apply to the protagonist. Later in the film (spoilers!), after defeating Evil Ex #4, Scott’s girlfriend dumps him, saying that he’s ‘just another Evil Ex waiting to happen.’ Afterwards, Scott’s seen wearing a Fantastic Four shirt with an edited logo saying ‘4½.'”

Movie Easter eggs can (and do) bring a lot of joy to film-goers. For example, one of my favorite movies is 2002’s Catch Me If You Can, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks. The movie’s based on a true story about con artist Frank Abagnale. (Minor spoilers ahead.)
I can’t tell you just how blown away I was to learn that the real Abagnale made an appearance in the movie as a police officer arresting DiCaprio playing Abagnale!
Though I never had the patience for Alfred Hitchcock’s movies (I still need some more maturity for them), I can appreciate his dedication to his craft. One of the most influential moviemakers in all of cinema, Hitchcock is known as one of the very first directors to put Easter eggs in his films.
One of his recurring hidden details is the fact that he makes cameos in his own movies. He appeared in a total of 40 of the 52 movies that he directed.
And don’t even get us started about Pixar and Disney movies that are chock-full of subtle references to pop culture and other animations. One thing’s for sure, I’m going to watch movies like a hawk from now on. What about you, dear Pandas?
