The most devastating movie twists of all time

SPOILERS ahoy.

THERE’S NOTHING LIKE a good sting in the tale.

Twists are the best.  They keep you guessing, hit you in the gut and there’s nothing better than walking out of the cinema shaking your head, replaying the whole movie in a different light.

We’re warning you now: There are A LOT of spoilers coming up.

If you want the mystery of unknown films preserved, then LOOK AWAY NOW. Or forever hold your peace.

Sixth Sense

And almost everything else M Night Shyamalan has ever done, including The Village, Signs and The Happening.

At this stage, the only twist Shyamalan could include in a thriller is NOT to include a twist.
