There's always that one friend who can predict the ending to any movie ever and always leaves feeling proud of their accuracy. Deep down they are probably devastated because there are no surprises in their life. But there are a handful of great movies out there that have a serious plot twist, good and bad, and have left most viewers speechless. *Warning: spoilers ahead!*
It seems surprise endings are becoming less common in theaters, maybe because it is getting more difficult to surprise viewers. Sometimes it seems like you can guess the ending within the first ten minutes.
But these are some classic, modern and unexpected films that, for the most part, created quite a sense of awe from viewers.
There was no way to see this one coming. Or maybe there was and I was just totally blindsided. The thrill and creepiness throughout this movie is enough to keep your attention, even if you were slightly confused majority of the time. For a moment, this movie has you thinking that you might be the one losing it.
James McAvoy I think surprised himself in this movie. So much was happening, so many characters to meet–I don’t think anyone knew what was going to happen in the end because it was all over the place. Once Kevin started eating people… yeah I don’t think anyone could have seen that coming.
Maybe not an incredibly complicated ending but it’s still pretty messed up. I mean, who dresses up like monsters to keep people trapped in a crazy village? The elders in this village use fear to control their townspeople and restrict them from living normal lives outside of their village. I was mostly just mad at the elders for being crazy jerks and scaring their friends and families; that’s just mean.
The Sixth Sense
*Still shivers when thinking of this movie*
In 1999, when this film was first released, I don’t think anyone could have seen this ending coming. Even today it still has first time watchers shocked.
This is truly a surprise ending, in every way possible. When you watch this movie for the second time, which I highly recommend you do, you notice so much that you didn’t see before, like the fact that Bruce Willis’ wife is actually ignoring him the whole time because he’s dead.
Just a classic, creepy plot twist that has scarred many viewers for the rest of their lives.
