Ohhhh,good call . How could I forget Angel Heart . And I almost said reservoir dogs,as its a great flick ,but true ,no twist ending.
There is also a movie called THE OTHER no plural . Old. 80s I think,about Twin brothers . Also the one about the cloned Hitler boys .
What is the name of that one. They clone like 10 babies from Hitlers DNA. Also old . They put each in a home ,and recreat his childhood,including the murder of his dad I think,trying to make another Hitler ,with the same demeanor as the original .
The Boys From Brazil .That's the name of it.

Seven is really good too. It's about a serial killer,who kills all his victims using one of the seven deadly sins. Morgan Freeman is in it too.
Then 8mm I think ,with Nicholas cage .
I just saw a weird one with him ,filmed in new Orleans ,but he films there a lot ....its new though .Like 2011.The sister from Dexter is in it too .  Let me find the name . It's pretty messed up .
Here it is ,JUSTICE .

There are a few I will check out. Sadly, I've seen like literally every other one that you all have recommended. Thanks guys. I appreciate it. Keep them coming if any ones pop in your head. I don't think I've seen 8MM so I'll check that out. I like nick Cage.

Bet you have not seen 'Laura' (Lynch used it as the basis of Twin Peaks--with a twist!).

A couple more:

Planet of the Apes (the original) - The twist being that he wasn't on another planet but in the future...
The Omega Man - Although the twist was down played in the movie, in the book it turned out that HE was the monster - and they were the new normal...

Most of original series were pretty straightforward. Nearly all of the 90's series where Twilight Zone-esque twist ending though..

Oh right. I've only seen a few episodes of the 80s Twilight Zone, was a little bit slow. Really liking The Outer Limits right now, They barely make any good TV like this anymore.
