Angels with Filthy Souls is a fake gangster film which is shown within the Home Alone Universe, it was made in one day and lasts 1:20. A sequel to this film called "Angels with Even Filthier Souls" appears in the Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. The main character of the film is called Johnny.
After being left home alone by his family, Kevin finds a videotape of "Angels with Filthy Souls" and is seen watching it while eating a huge bowl of ice cream.
Johnny, a gangster sitting behind a desk in an office, is met by Snakes, a gangster sent by A.C., the head gangster. Snakes asks for the money Johnny owed for "the stuff". Johnny says, "Too bad A.C. ain't in charge no more" and implies he's not about to give Snakes any money. Snakes shows discomfort when Johnny says that A.C. is upstairs taking a bath*, and that he would call Snakes once he got out. Almost immediately, Johnny remarks "I tell ya what I'm gonna give you, Snakes", and gets up from his desk while picking up his Tommy gun. Johnny tells Snakes to get out before he counts to ten. However, Johnny cuts the count short, counting to two, then jumping straight to ten ("One, two...TEN!"), and, while laughing maniacally, shoots rapid bullets at Snakes, killing him. Johnny stares at the corpse and says, "Keep the change, ya filthy animal!". Kevin then paused the video and shouted for his mom.
To thwart the burglars, Kevin plays the home video of Angels with Filthy Souls to trick them into thinking there are armed, dangerous adults in his house. Before that, he used the video to trick a pizza delivery guy in order to make it look like an adult was ordering the pizza.
The title is likely a reference to the 1938 film Angels with Dirty Faces. There is also a sequel to the film, Angels with Even Filthier Souls, in this film's sequel, which aids Kevin as well.
- Some fans have took "he's upstairs taking a bath" to mean that A.C is being dissolved in a bath of Sulphuric Acid; however, this is not known and can only be speculated.
It was included as a featurette in the Home Alone DVD release.
