I love watching films which have a big twist haven't seen any in a while. Love Shutter Island.

Last one I watched was Serenity which had a big twist but wasn't amazing!

Any suggestions?

Presumably you’ve seen Sixth Sense and Fight Club?

I thought the same about Serenity once they revealed the twist half way through it went downhill for me.

The Orphan has a good twist.

Also the Village and The Uninvited is really good

Not sure it counts as a twist, but I wasn’t expecting the ending of LaLa Land.

Identity was probably the first film that completely caught me out with a big twist.

Usual Suspects and The Six Sense.

Cannot think of any recent ones at the mo.

Oh just remembered..split and the others. Ok I'm done now...I think confused

The Prestige. And The Illusionist. Similar premises in both and once you've seen one you might predict the end of the other. Both really good though.

And Saw (the first one) if you can stomach it. Jaw-dropping twist at the end.

The Usual Suspects has the best twist ever.

@HearMeSnore you beat me to it. Was about to say The Prestige. Great Movie!

Love shutter island and usual suspects. Also Primal Fear is a good one.
