Intertextuallitiy is the idea of borrowing another idea presented in a film, to give off the same connotations in another film. An example of intertextuallity is knife blocks in most common Thrillers like ‘The Stepfather’ knife blocks are used, they are used in the same way as ‘Fatal Attraction’. Another example of intertexuallity is spiral wooden stair case, we see the same staircase in ‘The Stepfather’ and ‘What Lies Beneath’.

The famous and most obvious knife block shots.

A few examples images of Intertextuality is within The stepfather we find the spiral staircase in the high angled shot a lot, this idea was originally taken from the thriller what lies beneath.
