Foreshadowing is a literary technique that involves dropping hints about forthcoming events before they happen. Some examples include the witches in Macbeth foreshadowing all the awful events to come in the story; or the part in The Wizard of Oz where the house is stuck in a cyclone and Dorothy sees Ms. Gulch turn into a witch. Another example would be in the Twilight Zone episode where the woman sees the sales lady who rang her up being trotted past her as a mannequin.
