This term Intertexuality is used to describe the same visual references between films we watch. The scene's are not exactly the same but there are certain aspects you recognise from other films. The film makers borrow from each other. You can tell this from various things such the props that are used, certain camera angles, sounds and methods of editing. An example of this is in the film stepfather there have a curved staircase and in the film Fatal Attraction they have exactly the same curved staircase same colour and design. One other example is in the film Psycho when the women gets murdered the shower come out of there rings and fall on her, this same shot was in the Stepfather when the women stabs the killer in the neck the director purposely showed the shower curtains coming out of there rings.
