What interests me about intertextuality

Probably most films today, at some point in the film, have borrowed an element from another film, whether it be visual, sound or editing. Some films choose to use intertextuality subtly whereas other choose to make that there key feature.

Scary Movie:
The Scary Movie Quadrologies are best known for creating spoof of various horror films or thrillers. Some of the references are from films like Scream, The Matrix and The Shining, to name a few.
Scary Movie makes reference to Scream by saying that it has no plot.

Scary Movie makes reference to The Matrix in a fight scene of Cindy Vs The Killer
