5 Deepest and Darkest Movie Theories So Far

“According to the darkest recesses of the Internet that some kid-friendly films are nowhere near as innocent as we'd like to think.”

Of course, these are fan and conspiracy theories and the product of an insane amount of over-analysis, wild interpretation and borderline obsession.

Here are top 5 Deepest and Darkest Movie Theories:

5. Jack was a figment of Rose's imagination - Titanic (1997)

The theory argues that Rose (Kate Winslet), who's engaged to the insufferable snob Cal (Billy Zane), suffered a psychotic episode aboard the ship. In short, Rose created Jack to distract her from her own misery.

The most compelling clue is the scene which finds one of the ship's modern-day treasure hunters telling 101-year-old Rose that there's no evidence that Jack was ever anywhere on the "Titanic." No boarding pass, no belongings. Nothing.

"No, there wouldn't be, would there?" elderly Rose says mysteriously. "He exists now only in my memory."

4. Kevin McAlister Grow Up to Be Jigsaw - Home Alone (1990)

Home Alone movies concerned Kevin setting traps against a couple of stupid criminals. But doesn't he seem to have a little too much fun and torturing causing these men extreme pain?

According to some, Kevin later became the Jigsaw killer to satisfy his psychotic need to torture people.

3. Joker is an ex-Military Intelligence suffering PTSD - The Dark Knight (2008)

Some fans theorize that the Joker’s psychological manipulations of cops, underlings, and copycat Batmen were learned from a stint in military intelligence. It couldn’t be more clear than in Batman’s interrogation with the Joker, which the Joker effortlessly turns against him.

While the theory that the Joker is a victim of PTSD with potential ties to the military is not new, but what we see in the Joker seems to fit pretty well with what we know of military interrogation tactics.

2. Peter Pan is the Angel of Death - Peter Pan (1953)

There's a theory that Peter Pan is actually the angel of death, who appears to kids to safely guide them to Neverland (AKA heaven).

The theory posits that Wendy, John and Michael all died were transported to afterlife by Peter and met more dead children also known as the Lost Boys. Why do you think they never grow up? Well, if you died in childhood you literally can't.


1. Willy Wonka's Candy is Made from Dead Children - Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971)

Willy Wonka runs a chocolate factory which offers lucky golden ticket holders a chance to receive a guided tour - led by the man himself. But if the film's morbid fans are to be believed, there was nothing lucky about the children who found themselves navigating his deadly lair.

According to the dark explanation, years of living in isolation turned chocolate genius Wonka, and he hatched his "golden ticket" plan to wreak revenge on the world. Only Charlie was spared.

How else could the Oompa-Loompas have come up with choreographed routines for each fallen child?

But then again, even if you pick away at them, they do kind of make sense …
