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. Posted Image

I am surprised that no one has mentioned:

-Right around the big bloody spot.
-I'll get the neosporine. Da na na na na NEO da na na-na-na-na-na SPORINE.

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...

Whenever the laws of any state are broken, a duly authorized organization swings into action. It may be the called the State Police, State Troopers, Militia, the Rangers, or the Highway Patrol THE CITIZENS AUXILIARY POLICE!!! These are the stories of the men whose training, skill, and courage,...
