What's A Movie Or TV Cliffhanger So Well Executed, It Deserves Some Kind Of Award?

"What the...?!" —All of us, as a scene suddenly cuts to credits.

WARNING: This post contains spoilers for "The Good Place," "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," "The Umbrella Academy," and "Avengers: Infinity War!" Please proceed with caution!

A bad cliffhanger can piss the entire audience off — but a good cliffhanger? Oh, a good cliffhanger is hard to top!

Warner Bros. Pictures
