Seth Rogen reveals huge 'Home Alone' fact and nobody can believe it
| Last updated
Ever fancied having a watch of the black-and-white gangster movie in Home Alone titled Angels with Filthy Souls? Or even maybe the sequel, Angels with Even Filthier Souls, which featured in Home Alone 2?
You remember the flick:
The clip above, which we see Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) watch as he's home alone - in the comfort of a huge armchair with a mouth full of ice cream, no less - shows a heated exchange between a gangster called Johnny and a man known only as 'Snakes'.
Snakes arrives at Johnny's office, telling him that he has 'the stuff', but Johnny tells him to leave it on the doorstep and vamoose.
A confused Snakes then asks about the money he's owed, having been told by 'Acey' that he should be getting 10 percent of the cut.
"I tell ya what I'm gonna give you, Snakes," Johnny says.
"I'm gonna give you to the count of 10, to get your ugly, yella, no-good keister off my property, before I pump your guts full of lead."
But Johnny ends up cutting the count short, whipping out his Tommy gun.
"One, two... 10!" he shouts manically as he sprays Snakes with bullets.
"Keep the change, you filthy animal!"
The scene also crops up again when Kevin sneakily uses the audio to dupe his pizza delivery guy into thinking his customer is some hot-shot gangster, leaving him scrambling away from the door to avoid the supposed gunshots.
Well, you'll be shocked to find out that what appears to be an archetypal, classic crime drama doesn't actually exist. Hey, it wouldn't really be Christmas without destroying someone's happiness, would it?
Actor Seth Rogen actually shattered our festive tradition into smithereens when he tweeted on Christmas Day back in 2018
"My entire childhood, I thought the old timey movie that Kevin watches in Home Alone (Angels With Filthy Souls) was actually an old movie," he wrote.
It turned out the revelation wasn't just Rogen's, as many others were equally stunned to find out that it was, in fact, just a fake movie.
One said: "I'm gonna give you til the count of 3 to take this back!"
Another added: "I googled it yesterday and found out it was a made up movie for the movie. Shocked me to my very core."
And a third commented: "You've shook tens of thousands with this information - including me."
But our favourite of them all:
"I was right now years old as I learned this while watching Home Alone and wearing Merv gloves," one user said, posting a photo of them watching the 1990 classic while wearing a set of fingerless gloves.
Many other celebs were equally shocked, with Nick Kroll also commenting: "It isn’t? (Dead serious)."
To which Rogen replied: "Yeah man. You deserved to find out in a better way than this."
