The Top Ten

The Usual Suspects The Usual Suspects Product Image

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!

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

The identity of the criminal mastermind is revealed

And like that, he gone.

The Sixth Sense The Sixth Sense Product Image

What a movie! Roger Ebert himself was blindsighted by the end. Even if you guess the end, the movie is still brilliant

It should be required watching. It has the best ending of all time.

Literally, you have to watch the whole thing over again to be sure

One of my favorite endings to a movie. They did it perfectly!

Fight Club Fight Club Product Image

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.

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

It turns out that the narrator and Tyler Durden are the same person

I did not see it coming
best movie ever!

Memento Memento Product Image

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.

The Prestige The Prestige Product Image

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

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

Borden had a twin.

FACT: Christopher Nolan is amazing

Psycho Psycho Product Image

I already guessed it what's going to happen. So I don't think its very twisty to this gen viewers. But yeah, for a 60s movie its very twisting.

Norman Bates' mother is dead, and Norman is pretending to be her while killing people.

Oldboy Oldboy Product Image

The most unimaginable twist of all time,should be number 1
i mean anyone could figure out the twist in sixth sense in six minutes but OLDBOY'S twist is just amazing and breathtaking

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

Saw Saw Product Image

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...

John "Jigsaw" Kramer has been in the same room as the bathroom trap during the whole movie. The hospital worker they thought was the mastermind is merely an accomplice.

The only movie of the Saw franchise, with a good plot twist to be honest well besides Saw II but that's it.

My list
1. saw
2. momento
3. identity
4. others
5. psycho

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Product Image

Only #15? Seriously? Don't get me wrong; 90s twists and Hitchcock twists are fine in their own right, but this one comes from what is RIGHTFULLY known as one of the greatest scenes in cinema history! The best part: Lucas had been planning it as he made A New Hope, (previously just known as Star Wars).

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

People in the modern age know the twist before they watch it. it is still an amazing movie

Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker's father. " No, I am your father."

The Others The Others Product Image

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

Ripped off sixth sense with the twist
