Home Alone fans beg for iconic fake film to be made into an actual movie

Home Alone fans beg for iconic fake film to be made into an actual movie

Twitter fans are begging for Angels With Filthy Souls to be made.

Have you ever watched something so good in a film that you thought it was real?

That’s how fans of this popular Christmas flick feel, and now they are calling for it to be created as soon as possible.

If you’ve ever watched the classic movie Home Alone (and if you haven’t, what’s going on?) then you’ll know that there is one particular scene of little Kevin McCalister and the gruff burglars that is the funniest of them all.

It’s when Kevin decided to trick the robbers with a little scene from a fictional black and white movie to get them to leave his home.

Do you remember what I’m referencing?

Here's a reminder if you've somehow forgotten:

It is of course, the film 'Angels With Filthy Souls', which is a fake gangster movie with the most famous line of them all: “Keep the change, ya filthy animal.”

It’s something that Macaulay Culkin (or should I say Macaulay Macaulay Culkin Culkin?) had probably had shouted at him across the street for years since the 90s.

But it’s not real.

It's as iconic as the Home Alone movie itself at this point.

The film is actually fake and Seth Rogen was the one to break it to the internet a couple of years ago when he tweeted: “My entire childhood, I thought the old timey movie that Kevin watches in Home Alone (Angels With Filthy Souls) was actually an old movie."

Apparently, the film clip was exclusively filmed for the franchise, and according to Vanity Fair, it was shot in an abandoned high school gym.

However, it does reference a real gangster film from the 30s, which starred James Cagney.

The film is a hit with fans.

Art director Dan Webster told Vanity Fair: “I believe the title was decided upon only because we needed to create a label for the tape Kevin puts in the VHS player.”

But if you wanted to see more of it, you can actually see full versions of the short clips in the featurettes included on the Home Alone DVDs along with commentary from director Chris Columbus, according to Distractify.

However, that’s simply not enough for fans, who want to see it be made into a full feature-length movie so that they can see what was going on in the plot.

Why is this guy shooting up people and telling them to keep the change? That’s what I want to know.

A lot of hopefuls took to X, formerly Twitter to beg for it to be created.

One person wrote: “Home Alone didn’t need a remake. What needs to be produced as full feature film was the fake noir gangster movie- ‘Angels With Filthy Souls’ and its sequel ‘Angels With Filthier Souls’.”

Give the people what they want.

Another said: “I'm honestly surprised that there hasn't been a crowd-funded fan film creating a full feature length version of Home Alone's fake film-within-a-film "Angels With Filthy Souls" yet.”

A third was a big fan of the short, saying: “That fake gangster film on home alone is cold as hell.”

Someone else wasn’t happy that Hollywood hadn’t prioritised the shooting of this film yet, writing: “Of all the nonsense Hollywood has put to film over the years.

"All the remakes, reboots, adaptations, and niche content made mainstream. Why the HELL haven't they made the fake movie from Home Alone into a real movie??”

Come on, Hollywood, give the fans what they want.
