We’ve all been watching a movie where there was a pretty massive twist and we all found ourselves going “alright, they got us there.” The interesting thing about some of those twists is they were hinted at earlier in the movie. Directors and writers love to give little Easter Eggs that would totally give away the plot if we were paying attention the way we should have been. The best Easter Eggs of all include the ones where we end up slapping our forehead with the palm of our hand once the big reveal is made because we realize we should have seen it coming from a mile away. The movies on this list certainly make up that population. Check out our list of 10 crazy movie clues that you missed and let us know which ones you caught ahead of time.

Shawshank Redemption

When Red is talking to Andy about forgetting about the world outside the prison, Red tells him to forget his “sh!tty pipe dreams.” Later in the movie we see Andy escape using the waste disposal pipe, in other words, the sh!tty pipe.


During the early part of the film, Norman is talking about his love of taxidermy and then the conversation turns to his mother. At one point, he makes the comment “Why she’s harmless. She’s as harmless as one of those stuffed birds.” We find out later she has quite a bit in common with the stuffed birds.
