Best Movie Twist Endings

Twist endings are when at the end of a certain story, you realize what really happened about something, that was hidden all along the tale and which finally makes sence.... In the End...

Have fun!

The Top TenXW

1The Usual Suspects

What's not to love about this movie? Kevin Spacey winning tht Oscar was much deserved! He putting one over on the police and his clean getaway was classic. Very well done! - curlyqgirly

This blown me away. Fight Club, I knew the ending in the first 5 minutes of watching the film. I have yet to watch "The Prestige" but I will soon.

In the meantime, if you have not seen The Usual Suspects, you must! - Gasmaskboi19371945

2Fight Club

I saw Fight Club for the first time in 2014 and somehow never heard about the twist. I loved every second of the movie the first time I saw it, and when the twist happened at the end it completely blew me away. Incredible movie.

such a hard choice between this and the usual suspects... but this wins - arsenal193

This is actually my favorite movie of all times, not just the one with the best twist ending

I did not see it coming
best movie ever! - RonGuns

4Memento

Honestly, it's a good movie and all, but in the end it's just a story played backwards and I could actually see the twist coming. I think it deserves to be on this list, because of good acting and in the end a great story, but I'm just writing this because in my opinion Fight club should be over this one, because you definitely couldn't think of this ending! No disrespect to this movie anyway.

The best twist endings are the ones that provide some new insight into the character and his motivations, and this is one of those. The set up for this movie is nearly perfect, and the twist is no exception. - beasthound

5The Prestige

Saw? Seriously? Thanks God, I'm not a kid to love stupid saw franchise.
The Prestige is already cult film with smart storyline and phenomenal ending. I could easily predict The Usual Suspects' ending but I was blown away with this one - Alexandr

A mind boggling film with great suspense and phenomenal ending. I wish every film was like this one.

FACT: Christopher Nolan is amazing

6Saw

I love thriller, and this was the best thriller that I have ever seen. When I started seeing this, I was fully conscious what gonna happen next... It is awesome... Specially the third part...

7Oldboy

GREATEST TWIST OF ALL TIME!
BRILLIANT MOVIE COMPLETELY TOOK ME OFF GUARD!
WHERE IS PSYCHO THOUGH?

8The Others

A dark and ominous ghost story... And the ending is as eerie as they come.

9The Baby (1973)
10Seven

SPOILER:

Absolutely brilliant. Yes the other movie endings above are phenominal but this one truly is the winner. The whole movie is dark and grimy and while it is not a torture porn or gore flick it certainly doesn't shy away from blood, death, and several particularly nasty scenes and implications. But the end...

The ending is a bright country side, a polar opposite to everything leading up to the climax. At this point we're happy, but wary, as viewers- I mean, hey, we've caught the bad guy, we win. And then you see Morgan Freeman's face as he looks in "The Box" and swings around to look at Mills, far in the back ground. That line "Back off, John Doe has the upper hand, I repeat, he has the upper hand" completely throws off the viewer. Mills (Brad Pitt) has a gun to the bad guy's head. And then everything falls apart as he reveals it is Mill's wife's head, and that John Doe and Mills are to be the final sins if Mill's chooses to kill Doe.

No ...more

The Contenders

11Frailty
12Psycho
13Shutter Island
14Identity

This is a good one.
If you haven't seen it, watch it.

A mind blowing movie

15Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

If the ending wasn't ruined to you like it wasn't to me and you see that it changed everything for you. While there were some good endings in movies, none shocked the world like this one
