Midsommar picture

Trivia: During the feast in which Christian finds a pubic hair inside of his food, look closely at the drinks on the table. While the camera never calls direct attention to this, if you look closely, Christian's drink is very slightly darker than everyone else's. Earlier in the film, the camera briefly passes over a mural that depicts a woman collecting menstrual blood in a cup. (Along with the image of a woman cutting off pubic hairs, like the one Christian found in his food.) It seems Christian's drink has been laced with something he didn't expect.

Happy Death Day 2U picture

Trivia: Spoilers. In the end, Dr. Butler and his wife Stephanie are revealed to be the killers. They were actually the killers in the original script for the first film, but the ending was changed several times until the final version seen in theaters with Lori being the killer. The original idea was recycled into this film, since the dimension-hopping angle of the story allowed the presence of a new version of the killer.

Us (2019)

Us picture

Trivia: Spoilers: Among the video-tapes seen next to the TV after the opening credits are "C.H.U.D." and "The Goonies." This is quite relevant to the plot, in which it is revealed that the doppelgangers come from beneath the ground in a series of tunnels that used to be run by the government. "C.H.U.D." is about mutant creatures that live underground and have began to rise up and attack, like the doppelgangers, and "Goonies" takes place largely in underground tunnels and caverns, much like the film's climax.

The Lighthouse picture

New this month Trivia: The movie was filmed in a full-frame aspect ratio and in black and white in order to help put the audience into the film. The aspect ratio was chosen in to make the film feel more confined and closed in. And it, along with the black and white filmstock, also helps the film feel aged and older.
