    I'm looking for some movies that shocked the heck out of you at the end because you didn't see it coming. My sister is a movie genius and she can almost always predict an ending. I want to prove her wrong!!! Help!!

    Frailty

    I knew what Sixth Sense and The Others would turn out as, but Frailty surprised me a bit.

    No list of this type can exist without a mention of Sleepaway Camp.

    Y Tu Mama Tambien. But somehow I doubt that's the kind of a horror/suspense film shock that you're looking for.

    Ok, it's not really shocking, but it is sort of:
    North By Northwest
    You never do find out how Cary Grant and Eva Saint Marie get out of the cliffhanger situation!
    Great way to end, however. [​IMG]

    I've found women tend to be much better at guessing a film's ending in advance. What do you guys think?

    Oh and The Usual Suspects is pretty 'turnaround'...

    Shiri -- a rather unexpected plot twist, to be sure.
    The Stunt Man -- although really, the whole movie is just one big twist 'innit?
    And another nod for Abre Los Ojos.
    Although the movie mostly stunk on ice, I was rather surprised at the twist in Along Came A Spider...
