5 Of The Best And Most Surprising Movie Endings Of All Time

Published

on

There are many movies with predictable endings. You know what is going to happen nearly halfway through the film. But on the other hand, there are plenty of films that have surprising, satisfying endings that surprise all audiences. This includes these five brilliant films. Warning: This list contains several spoilers.

Hitchcock Does It Best In “Psycho”

Alfred Hitchcock is one of the best film directors of all time. His 1960 psychological horror film Psycho is proof that Hitchcock knows how to shock audiences. This is especially true with the film’s famous shower scene. Marion Crane (played by Janet Leigh) is taking a shower when she’s stabbed to death by Norman Bates. What’s most shocking is that audiences think Bates’ mother killed Marion when it is revealed Bates killed his own mother and dressed up as her to kill Marion.

They Don’t End Up Together In “La La Land”

The 2016 musical romance La La Land has one of the best endings ever. You think the lead romantic duo, Mia and Sebastian (played by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling) would have a “happy” ending, but that’s not the case. They break up and Mia marries someone else. Years later, the duo meet again and they fantasize about an alternate ending— one where they would have ended up together. It’s a clever ending to show audiences “what could have been.”

The Big Reveal In “Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back”

Many plot twists occur in the 1970 Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back. For example, Han Solo might be dead. But what’s most shocking to audiences is the famous scene when Luke discovers who his true father is— Darth Vader. “No, I am your father” is one of the most famous (and often misquoted) movie lines of all time.

Unfortunate Fall In “Vertigo”

Alfred Hitchcock really was the master of suspense. His 1958 thriller, Vertigo, is his most twisted film. The film’s protagonist, Scottie (played by James Stewart), ultimately gets everything he wants at the end: The love of his life, Judy, is alive; he’s conquered his Vertigo and he solved the film’s mystery. But in the film’s final moments, Judy falls to her death. Scottie will live with his obsession and guilt for the rest of his life.

Best Plot Twist In “Fight Club”

No one was expecting the ending of the 1999 film, Fight Club. The movie focuses on an unnamed narrator (played by Edward Norton) and his new friendship with Tyler Durden (played by Brad Pitt). The two begin a “fight club” that turns into a national movement. But the movie has one of the best plot twists ever created: Tyler doesn’t exist. The narrator suffers from dissociative identity disorder. Everything you just watched was an illusion in the narrator’s mind. Pretty cool, right?
