Intertextuality is when a form of visual text that is taken and placed into another type of media visual text and is then given the credit of taking one part of that visual text and then putting it into their own work.
Intertextuality can be taken from both novels as well as older films.

For example, in the Thriller film; The stepfather, They take the iconic shower scene from the film 'Psycho', using the same shower curtains and the white tiles and the framing and angle of the camera. This straight away reminds the audience of the film that it had been taken from, which is yet again bringing some sort of feeling of suspense towards the audience.
