The Best Movie Plot Twists of All Time

Dual identities, dead people who don’t know they’re dead, and more! 

Some movies want to entertain us, others want to mess with our heads. When it’s done right, a surprise twist can make a movie the subject of party conversation for ever more (and there’s always be one asshole insisting he saw it coming a mile away; don’t believe him). Though we’re dubious of filmmakers who traffic exclusively in third-act shockers (we’re looking at you, M. Night Shyamalan and Christopher Nolan), it’s not a coincidence that some of the movies on this list are also some of the best movies of all time.
