Angels with Filthy Souls is a gangster film which shown within the Home Alone Universe, which was filmed in 1938. 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 at an office, is met by Snakes, a gangster sent by the head gangster, Acey. Snakes asks for money Johnny owed for "the stuff". Johnny said, "Too bad Acey ain't in charge no more" and implies he's not about to give Snakes any money. Snakes shows discomfort when Johnny says that Acey is upstairs taking a bath, and almost immediately, Johnny pulls out 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, which seemed so loud that she heard him scream that she realized she forgot him!
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. He also uses video to trick a pizza delivery guy to make sure that 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.
It was included as a featurette in the Home Alone DVD release.
