3. Shutter Island (2010)

4. The Other (2001)
Watch this video on YouTube “The entire film, you believe that the mother and her two children are being haunted by a family…only to find out that THEY themselves are the ghosts. I never saw that plot twist coming at all! The whole movie was confusing, but then it all made sense with the twist.”

7. Absolutely, Stupid, Love (2011)
Check out this video on YouTube. “It’s a rom-com, so you’re not expecting a huge twist or anything, but — when the twist came — I was floored. Never thought all of the characters’ worlds would collide in the way they do, but it’s SO funny. Ryan Gosling sincerely got ignored during awards season for that role.”
8. Secret Window (2004)
Watch this video on YouTube Sony Pictures Releasing “The final scene of this thriller completely threw me off.

Watch this video on YouTube Lions Gate Films “The first time I watched that and that ending came, I was genuinely shocked!”
12. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

13. arrival (2016)
Check out this video on YouTube. “It was already such a good movie, but that plot twist was so well-executed…I honestly don’t think anyone who’s seen the movie could’ve seen it coming.”
14. Scream (1996)
Watch this video on YouTube Dimension Films “Not only when you find out that two of Sidney’s friends are the killers…but also when you find out that they are also the ones who killed Sidney’s mother! The first three
Scream movies really did have mind-fuck plot twists for my teenage brain.”
15. The Boy (2016)
“Say what you want about the movie, but if you thought there was a fully grown man living in the walls before it was revealed, I think you may need to see a therapist. There was no way to see something THAT crazy coming.”
16. Frozen (2013)
Watch this video on YouTube “Disney marketed Hans as the ‘good guy,’ and then — with less than 20 minutes left to the movie — he turns out to be the villain?! He portrayed every quality of a typical Disney prince, and I think that’s why it was such a shock to everyone. We, as the audience, were made to believe that Hans was perfect for Anna, and we didn’t question it because of the ‘true love’ concept created by Disney. I remember sitting in the theater watching that and hearing the audible gasps in the audience. I still get mad to this day watching that scene.”
