Some of the hidden messages in the movies concern the Iluminati, Mind Control, the NWO, the Occult, Satanism, and all the stuff we love to talk about in this column. It is believed by some that messages that promote a secret agenda appear in every single movie. Sometimes the purpose is simple to understand on the face of it. One of the most famous examples of this were the gruesome images used in "The Exorcist"; subliminal images were edited in to increase the fear of the audience. This could explain why this movie induced such strong reactions of terror with so many people.
A hidden message is information that is not immediately noticeable, and that must be discovered or uncovered and interpreted before it can be known. Hidden messages include backwards audio messages, hidden visual messages and symbolic or cryptic codes such as a crossword or cipher.
Stanley Kubrick, in his 1999 release, "Eyes Wide Shut", features a scene depicting a Satanic ritual, where in the soundtrack one song "Masked Ball" consists of a backwards Latin liturgy.
In 1976, the U.S. signed a UN treaty called Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques. In other words weather control. In the motion picture "The Avengers" part of the plot alludes to weather control.
Part of the actual plotline in the movie "Fight Club" is itself about subliminal messaging in movies. A scene where Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt's character) adds frames of a penis on the screen while working as a projectionist in a movie theater. Also it is claimed that you can see Tyler Durden for just one frame, three times before the character appears for the first time in the film.
In the Disney movie Aladdin , some have heard a whispered message saying "Good teenagers, take off your clothes." In another Disney film, The Lion King , the word "sex" seems to form in the clouds above Simba's head after he watches his father die.
In the movie "Gladiator" the character Maximus is taken to be killed and the word "Kennedy" flashes on the screen. At the end when he is stabbed by Commodus, the word appears again. You can view it with a reliable dvd player when you slow it down.
It is claimed that in the Jim Carrey movie "23" lots of messages can be viewed but with much difficulty due to some extremely deft technical editing. Many people have made a game out of hunting them all down.
In the first "Spiderman" film a spooky image of the World Trade Center can be seen reflected in the eye of Spiderman.
A subliminal ghostly figure can be seen in the movie "Silence Of The Lambs". As the asylum director escorts Clarice into Lecter's lair, at the bottom of a flight of stairs, they walk out of picture and for one frame you can see an ominous figure looming menacingly behind them. Some say this was only an extra, a strait-jacketed patient. The effect, however, was undeniably of a subliminal lunge from behind.
There is a scene in the movie "A Fish Called Wanda" where Otto sits up in the background behind Wanda played by Jamie Lee Curtis that is reminiscent of a scene in Halloween (1978), in which the character of Michael Myers sat up behind the character played by Jamie Lee Curtis.
In the movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith there is a scene where John Smith is in his office where a black suit with a white shirt and red tie can be seen hanging in the background. This is the same outfit worn by "Agent 47" in the popular Hitman game series.
In the 2001 movie "Oceans 11" Matt Damon punches "1138" on a elevator keypad as a homage to George Lucas's first movie THX 1138 made in 1971.
In the same movie Andy Garcia's line to Brad Pitt, "If you should be picked up buying a $100,000 sports car in Newport Beach, I'm going to be extremely disappointed," is in reference to the actual kidnapping of Steve Wynn's daughter, Kevyn. The kidnappers were caught trying to spend some of the ransom money in Newport Beach as they attempted to buy a very expensive car in cash.
In the movie "Constantine" the hero slits his wrists, starting with his left, and Lucifer reaches out to claim him with his left hand, in keeping with the traditional depiction of the left ("sinister") side being associated with evil.
Of course we have to wind up with the movie "National Treasure" which is all about hidden messages. The movie does contain some interesting messages. For example: As the camera pans through the treasure room we can see a statue of a black bird - an homage to "The Maltese Falcon" (1941), which was another treasure hidden by a group of knights and sought after by several parties.
Also, for some reason good guys in the movie use Google and bad guys use Yahoo! for search.
In the DC segment during the planning stage of the burglary the movie cuts to an external shot of a building on the Potomac River - presumably where the bad guys are planning their attempt. This building is the actual Watergate Hotel.
When Gates is purchasing a replica Declaration of Independence in the gift shop, on the counter next to the register is a stack of books for sale. The book is 'The Secret Architecture of our Nation's Capital' by David Ovason and is about the Masons and the building of Washington DC. Ovason also wrote "Secret Symbols of the Dollar Bill", and US currency is used as one of the clues in the film.
Finally, in this film there is a secret message printed on the back of the Declaration Of Independence. The movie suggests that some important clue is written on the back of the Declaration. It is true that something IS written on its back. The writing on the back of the Declaration of Independence reads: "Original Declaration of Independence dated 4th July 1776" and it appears on the bottom of the document, upside down. While no one knows for certain who wrote it, it is known that early in its life, the large parchment document (it measures 29 3/4 inches by 24 Ã‚Â½ inches) was rolled up for storage. So, it is likely that the notation was added simply as a label; however, you NEVER really know!
