Depending on how much you value your brain’s sanity, there are some of us who find delight in having our minds completely twisted. And there are some films that do this better than others!
In this list, you’ll find a few classics, being twists, you’ve known about for years. Others will be further off from traditional twists and turns but still very much deserves your attention. Ready to have your brain blown?
1. Get Out
‘Get Out’ unfolds a layered story wherein the main character Chris goes from feeling like the odd one out to being auctioned off to a rich white man who wants to take over his body, and push Chris’s subconscious down into ‘the sunken place. Will he escape?!
2. Shutter Island
Teddy Daniels and Chuck Aule, two US marshals, are sent to an asylum on a remote island in order to investigate the disappearance of a patient, where Teddy uncovers a shocking truth about the place.
For its time ‘Psycho’ was a revolution. No matter what era you’re from; when you discover that it’s Norman Bates himself donning a wig and pretending to be his mother whilst murdering innocent patrons, it’s impossible not to be mind blown.
‘Us’ uses the idea of doppelgängers to represent the sides of ourselves we both keep hidden, on both a personal and societal level, which is what makes the ending twist so effective. Talk about a creepy mind-bending twist.
5. Black Swan
‘Black Swan’ is a strange and complicated film, exploring the often ignored fine line between talent and obsession. Main character Lily, dies as she realizes that her performance was perfect. The obsession with achieving perfection is her eventual undoing.
6. Gone Girl
‘Gone Girl’ is a wild ride! Nick Dunne discovers that the entire media focus has shifted on him when his wife Amy Dunne disappears on the day of their fifth wedding anniversary. But did she really die?
7. American Psycho
He’s a homicidal psychopath everything anyone does in his twisted eyes is reason enough to deserve death, and even though Bateman is cruel he’s highly meticulous, careful, and, ultimately, completely lacking in remorse. Makes us think that anyone is capable of murder!
For about 97% of its running time, the genre-invigorating ‘Saw’ plays like a straightforward piece of hardcore horror. There’s a killer on the loose, and, he has a thirst for avenge and torture.
A classic which is mixed-in with a grey-matter melting conceptual twist that makes Shutter Island look like an episode of Dora the Explorer!
10. The Sixth Sense
A supernatural thriller that’s been debated for its twist ending. Some feel it’s a masterful piece and amazingly executed!
