37 Best Twist Endings in Film
You often go into thrillers or mystery movies not knowing what to expect, but every once in a while, a plot twist will shake up everything you thought you knew so much that it changes the entire movie, even in the last few seconds. Director M. Night Shyamalan is known for throwing plot twists in all of his movies, like The Village and Glass, the recent sequel to both his 2000 film Unbreakable and 2016’s Split. But screenwriters and directors of all genres — although maybe not rom-coms as much as thrillers — have been fans of the twist ending for decades, aiming to shock fans and audience members at the last second. Sometimes it’s fun to get that shock from a movie. Predictability can get boring. So if you’re in the mood for a twist that will leave you shook, here are 37 of the best movie endings we didn’t see coming. But be prepared, and read at your own risk of spoilers.
