Who doesn't love a good last minute plot twist?

Here's my favorite "surprise ending" movies, but I'm always up for other good ones. What are yours?

No Way Out
The Usual Suspects
Dead Again
The Crying Game

Others?

The Brave One surprised me a bit with the ending! Anyone else?

I have to say that "The Sixth Sense" threw me. I never saw that one coming.

ahhh, yeah! How did I forget that one?!?!? Too bad M. Knight hasn't had much further success . . .

Haven't seen "Mist" yet. Don't know if I will as I generally find that Steven King books don't seem to be well-translated to movies. I think the only exceptions were Carrie and the first Salem's Lot adaptation. But I guess that's a topic for a whole 'nother thread, huh?

ITA, Vagus. I was disappointed in his other stuff. I thought he'd turn out to be an extremely successful writer/director.

Really? I boggle a bit at reading how viewers were thrown by the ending of "The Sixth Sense". We caught it on DVD; hadn't a whiff of knowledge about how it ended; but 1/2-way through I was muttering "I bet he's .....". When it got the the end, I nodded sagely and said "yup, thought so."

I enjoyed "The Village", even with my own correct speculations about the end, just because of the thought of a set of people having the ability to go off and found their own supposed 19th century "utopia". And then protecting its existence by foisting superstitions and boogie men on the younger inhabitants. Made for an interesting premise.

Maybe not necessarily the endings, but the movie as a whole experience.
Secretary, I never though they would get married.
The Woodsman, before seeing this movie I'd never believe that a paedophile could actually stop being one. Now I think that it could be possible, although I still find it highly unlikely.
Bad Lieutenant, I never believed it possible that a character in a story could gamble, snort, inject or f*ck all the scenes of a movie together and still be interesting and thought provoking.
I mean the first half of the movie is just to establish how bad the lieutenant really is, but once you are able to get yourself through that it really is a good movie about good and evil.

Oh YEAH. That whole movie was just a trip. My husband and I watched it twice in two days to make sure we were seeing what we thought we were seeing. Excellent movie.
