Christmas time means everyone watching their favorite holiday movies. One of the most beloved is the movie that made Macaulay Culkin a star: Home Alone. However, decades after the film’s release, even Culkin himself is learning new facts about it.
It all started with this revelation from Seth Rogan.
My entire childhood, I thought the old timey movie that Kevin watches in Home Alone (Angels With Filthy Souls) was actually an old movie.

In Home Alone, Kevin McCallister, played by Culkin, entertains himself watching an old black and white film entitled Angels With Filthy Souls. However, the movie within the movie was also created just for the Home Alone universe.
Turns out that it was news to Culkin too.
Others were shocked.
I thought it was until I read this tweet ????

Given that it’s not a real movie, why has nobody ever bothered to make it one? Would definitely watch.
