    Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971)

    Willy Wonka was a deranged, child-hating killer who staged the industrial accidents that took place in his factory. How else do you explain the fact that there are only a specific number of seats on his ferry after Augustus got stucked in the pipe? Or that the Oompa Loompas are always ready with a death song?

    Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)

    The entire film takes place in Cameron’s head, with Ferris created by his buddy as the polar opposite of his own depressive personality. As a quiet and depressed, quiet high school-er, it’s not that farfetched to think Cameron would create an alter ego who’s cool, fearless and can do the things he’d never do in real life. So, he created Ferris Bueller.

    Grease (1978)

    While singing “Summer Nights,” Danny boasts about Sandy: “I saved her life. She nearly drowned.” Sandy actually did drown and “Grease” is just a dream she had before meeting her death. At the end of the movie, we saw Sandy and Danny fly off in a red convertible as they wave goodbye to their friends on the solid ground below. Is this a metaphor for heaven?

    Dr. No (1962)

    “James Bond” isn’t a man but rather a codename, passed on from one MI6 agent after the other over the years. The theory explains the multiple faces and slightly differing personality of the different Bonds, from Connery to Craig.

    The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones (1987)

    The time machine didn't transfer The Jetsons to the past, but to the future. The world of The Jetsons is an advanced futuristic era, with cities set above clouds... but we never see the ground. The only explanation is that the Earth was devastated by something (war, virus, plague...) and that's why people are living 'in the sky'. So, according to that theory, The Flintstones is set on Earth, after the society of The Jetsons crumbled/left to space - that's why we have TALKING dinosaurs & prehistoric animals, coexisting with humans - evolution/mutation did that. That's also why there are TV sets, automobiles and other 'modern' equipment in the 'stone age'.

Drag Me to Hell is all about eating disorder. (c)
