20 Easter Eggs Hidden In Our Favorite '80s Movies

Orion Pictures, Universal Pictures

To people of a certain age, the 1980s was a landmark decade in film. Various blockbusters and franchises were born to turn into sequels, reboots, and reimagings that are enjoyed and marketed worldwide to this very day. Not a day goes by that you can see a Ghostbusters t-shirt at Target, a Michael Keaton Batman collectible at Target, or a former 1980s child star working at Target. 

So many films from the 1980s are celebrated by nearly-40-year-old millennials, along with hand-me-down nostalgia to Gen Z, too. Many of these films have been played over and over on VCRs, DVD players, Blu-Ray players, and streaming services that they’ve been quoted to death. However, there may still be some fun things you missed during your first, second, or 91st time watching them.

This week we have some fun Easter eggs that we’ve found in some of your favorite films of the 1980s. Have a peek.
