Werewolf of London (1935)
Mystique changes from Senator Kelly into Lady Deathstrike while passing through a series of columns, exactly like Wilfred Glendon.
Them! (1954)
The sound heard by the mutants and the humans when Xavier is starting to kill them is the same as the sound emitted by the ants.
Match Game PM (1975) (TV Series)
you hear the theme song as the kid is flipping through tv channels during the night of the attack
Scanners (1981)
Stryker says his wife took a drill to the temple of her head because she couldn't get the images projected by her son out of her head. Michael Ironside takes a drill to his frontal lobe because he can't get the thoughts of others out of his head.
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982)
The Jean Gray death sequence heavily references Spock's death in The Wrath of Khan. While the rest of the crew is trying to get the engines started before disaster strikes, both Jean and Spock slip away unnoticed and sacrifice themselves to save their companions many of the shots, facial expressions and reactions of characters in both movies are the same. Both movies end with a voice over by the character who died and a long panning shot over an idyllic scene that shows the final resting place of Jean and Spock with a hint that they might not be dead at all. Even the score played over the final scene in X2 sounds closely related to Khan's familiar theme.
Firestarter (1984)
The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
The prison scenes of Magneto resemble the prison scenes of Hannibal Lector.
Wolverine: Adamantium Rage (1994) (Video Game)
