Do YOU see dead people?

Warning: This post does contain SPOILERS for several horror movies!

A horror movie is, generally, a pretty stressful experience from start to finish.

Universal Pictures

However, if you throw in a plot twist ON TOP OF the already terrifying circumstances, you get a genuinely jarring outcome.

Dimension Films

So, what horror movie has the absolute BEST twist of all time?

Warner Sogefilms

Perhaps it's an oldie but a goodie, like when Norman Bates ends up being the killer in Psycho.

Paramount Pictures

Or maybe it's something more recent, like the graphic beheading that comes out of nowhere in the middle of Hereditary.


Heck, maybe it's one that's become SO engrained in pop culture, people have forgotten how great it is, like the ending of The Sixth Sense.

Buena Vista Pictures Distribution
