Any examples for me to watch?

I didn't see the twist in the usual suspects coming, also the orphanage, any similar films?

I was going to suggest the Orphanage. I'm probably a bit daft but I didn't see the twist coming in The Others.

The Prestige with Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman. I loved the twist at the end.

Orphan - not to be confused with The Orphanage - fab film, that.

I did not see the twist coming in the "sixth sense"..the movie still scares me..

All of the above plus Fight Club, Memento, Shutter Island, Oldboy, Planet of the Apes and The Crying Game.
(Oldboy is a tough watch - be warned)

The only one that comes to mind is Fight Cub.

I don't see how anybody could have seen the twist coming in Vanilla Sky. However I didn't see the twist in any of the films mentioned above; think I must be an undemanding viewer.

OldBoy is a cracking film! And I'm not really a big fan of fight scenes in films but there is one in particular there that is brilliant (the corridor bit).

Shutter island and in a similar vein A Beautiful Mind as I didn't know the story behind it.

The Prestige. That was a very clever film. I really liked it. I watched it again and realised that you're the viewer on two different levels really.

Sixth sense got me too.

im sure there's a film ive seen recently that had a twist i wasnt expecting.

will ask dh tonight or tomorrow (he's away), so im marking my place so i hopefully dont forget

Aside from those mentioned, I saw 'One Day' recently and didn't see that coming. I actually gasped! maybe because it was the first interesting thing that happened

My sister told me there was a 'huge twist' in sixth sense so unfortunately I worked it out in the first 10 minutes and it ruined the film for me.

Sixth sense and the others.

First film I thought of was the others but also Remember Me. Cried like a baby...

I watched The Prestige last night. The twist really made me shock too, and I'm usually a real arse who likes to spoil films by loudly predicting what's going to happen.

Just being told "this movie has a twist" is enough to put you on high alert.

I didn't see the twist in the sixth sense and when I watched it for the second time I STILL didn't see it coming (dumb brunette)

One Day (although I read the book first so strictly speaking I did see it coming in the film) and the Sixth Sense - OMG!!!!

Another one (in book form admittedly but I would not be surprised if it makes it to the big screen) is The Dinner by Herman Koch. Great book, leaves you reeling a bit at the end, going 'WTF?' shock

FellatioNels0n Thu 10-Jan-13 14:50:55

nomore I remember 'that bit' in the book of One Day and gasping out loud 'Aaah?! No!!!! That can't happen!!!!'

agree with one day. read the book first and kept rereading the previous few pages as i thought id missed something blush

totally forgot about it and in the film it made me jump and i was so shock

starter for ten a much better book. no twist but it was just better and funnier. the understudy and one day coasted on starter for ten's success (imo)
