    How can Saw 1 not be on this list ? Only reason I keep going back to watch the rest of them is how the first one ended.

    I remember the first time I saw Fight Club it blew my mind.

    Seven definitely had an wild twisted ending that kept my heart pumping. I do not see it coming!

    The end was a nasty moment, but i couldn’t help but laugh.

    Inception had heart pounding ending, that’s for sure. But i don’t think it was a twisted ending cause i still had questions in the end.

    “Luke, i am your father!” How is that not a crazy twisted, shocking ending?!

    I have to say, i heard about Norman Bates before i watched the movie. in the middle of the movie i was thinking to myself, ‘how is norman considered a great slasher villain if the mother was killing people?!” the ending answered that question ambitiously.

    My god that was one seriously shocking and twisted ending.

    In saying over and over again that “Matchstick Men” is one of the most criminally under-rated movies of all time, seeing it left out of this list of best twist endings further proves my point. It was so unpredictable, shocking, brilliant, yet served a purpose in changing the protagonist’s life, leading to a surprisingly upbeat ending.
