Sleepaway camp

3 ( +4 / -1 )

Remember having a day off from school and seeing a matinee of the "Matrix".

Information online was scarcer in those days and from the trailers thought it was about super-powered goths? Vampires?

It was a cyberpunk revelation.

The Wizard of Oz wasn't a real wizard.

The one that got me the most was the Tarantino film From Dusk Till Dawn which flips film genre in an instant halfway through the film. I didn't see that coming at all.

The Sting was excellent.

6th Sense really made me go, "Ohhhhh..." near the end when I saw it. Nowadays, it seems so obvious but at the time, "Ohhhh......"

Terminator 4. He was a robot the whole time! (Spoilers)

Sixth sense and Fight Club.

Fight Club really got me… Sixth Sense though… a friend told me he had just seen it and that I should see it because there’s a huge plot twist. Maybe it was just that he mentioned the words “plot twist” that made me think it… but I guessed from the trailer it was Haley Joel Osment could “see” Bruce Willis. Was a letdown for me in the end.

The Sixth Sense.

Start from the old days: Psycho is number one all-time. Not your typical plot twist nowadays but in 1960, you could not have guessed you'd see mom's skeleton in that chair or Norman wearing that wig and acting like mom. That was a heart stopper. The Wicker Man was a good 70s movie. Angel Heart was good in the 80s. Sixth Sense, The Usual Suspects and Se7en are good ones from the 90s. Nowadays, the plot only sickens, not thickens.

Eat Drink Man Woman. When the old chef announces he's marrying the younger woman and not her mother. Terrific.

Maybe not the best in cinema history, but 1991 was a good year for movies with great plot twists.
