I love any sort of movie with a twist, horror, thriller, etc. Anyone know any good movies with a twist. I've seen plenty such as CUBE (series) Exam, Nine Dead, Bone Collector, Memento, Fear Island, the mist, shutter island, inception, the list goes onnn.... but anyone know any others??

I heard "The Perfect Host"  with David Hyde Pierce, has a good twist. But I can't vouch for it either way, have not seen it.

Check out Scream Of Fear posted in the Hammer thread.

Also, Diabolique, a French film.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

Ummm,B.itch Slap was amusing. Not horror ,more like The Usual Suspects ,except with girls in wet tee shirts .
Lucy Lawless,Renee O'Connor,Kevin Sorbo and Michael Hurst ,all do cameos ,which are quite campy .
It was choreographed by the same stunt woman that choreographed Quentin tarantinos Grind House.

There's a seriously sick Japanese one called Cold Fish ,based on a true story ,and if their movies say that,its true .
Cold Souls ,with Paul Giamatti is ...well odd .
I still love The Mad Room ,but its old ,and not on dvd .

There's that other one with Roddy mcdowall and Stella Stevens ,also not on DVD ....I think its called Arnold .
The Manchurian Candidate . I prefer the original to the remake ,but the story is cool.
Feed,with Alex O'Loughlin .

Theres a few good Australian one .Psychological thrillers .let me remember the names .

Iassume you've seen all of peter Jackson's originals . Bad Taste ,Dead Alive ,Meet The Feebles ,Beautiful Creatures ,also based on a true story .


On the Japanese end :
One Missed Call ,The Suicide Club  ,Exte ,which literally mocks all the long haired demon girl movies .Tokyo Gore Police ,Audition .


Sometimes old ones ,are the best ones .
Blue Sunshine ,Torture Garden ,The House That Dripped Blood.

Let me think a bit . I have seen sooooo many .

Not a movie but The Outer Limits series. Every episode has a twist.

Just started watching it properly. I remember watching it when I was young but could never remember the name of the show (In fact I thought it was a movie I had seen, turned out to be a movie length episode of this show).

The 90s version is the one i'm watching at the moment, only seen two episodes, so far it's been awesome.

Bit.ch Slap ,then Audition ,which is just horrific,in and of itself . Bitc.h Slap is ,as I said,similiar to The Usual Suspects.
If you've never see The Usual Suspects ,I highly recommend it .
Cold Fish ,is about this creepy guy and his wife,who own a tropical fish store ,but so all sorts of horrible stuff to people ,to stay on top .
Cold Souls is about this new technique where you can remove your soul ,or remove it,and put someone else's soul in your body .
It reduces stress etc. Very odd flick . Paul Giamatti promoted it,by swearing all over the place ,it was a real proceedure .
I just watched something that had a freaky ending....let me...think.....

Also Blood Simple ,and Fargo . Murder kind of stuff,but kick ass endings .

Miss me?

I would add to this,Seven,with brad Pitt . Oldboy is Korean .It's famous for the live octopus eating scene.
I was going to say Infernal Affairs,which is an awesome Chinese cop movie .
The Departed ,is actually a remake of infernal affairs ,except using the Irish mob,instead of triads .
The Departed did it justice ,but Infernal Affairs is much cooler for me. It starts Andy Lau ,and little Tony Leung.
Hard Boiled doesn't have a twist ending per se,but its just twisted throughout .
And The Killer is great .Both star Chow Yun Fat .

I've seen so many ,Chinese ,Japanese ,brit ,its all a slurry in my brain at this point.
There was a cool Korean one,where a serial killer sends the head of his last victim ,to his next victim .That was messed up ,but I cannot recall the name.
Also ,a Korean movie called Antique . Serious twist ending ,but its kind of lighthearted prior .So you don't see it coming at all .It's got funny parts too .

Don't let the initial mood throw you . I think its all here in parts ,with English subtitles . I liked it . It's funny to begin with,but odd.
Then the end totally threw me .

I thought A Perfect Getaway and The Uninvited had good twists.

They just showed Diabolique on TCM last night. The original twist ending film.

Most of William Castle's stuff.

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