5 Of The Best Plot Twists In Movies, From One M. Night Shyamalan Fan To Another

Nothing is better than a movie with a plot twist; it's something about the twist itself that makes the movie so much more satisfying to watch. Here's a list of 5 of the best ones, most made in the last '90s and early 2000s.


The Sixth Sense (1999)

Giphy

In arguably M. Night Shyamalan's best film, young Cole Sear "sees dead people." With the help of child psychologist Dr. Malcolm Crowe, he seeks medical help regarding his supernatural abilities, only to find one of the most unexpected plot-twists of cinematic history. Actually, it's not that unexpected once you watch it a second time.

Shutter Island (2010)

Giphy

U.S Marshal Teddy Daniels and his partner visit Ashecliffe Hospital, an insane asylum for the mentally disturbed, on Shutter Island to uncover the story of a missing patient. This action-packed sinister movie touches on topics of war PTSD, past trauma, and murder.

Donnie Darko (2001)

Giphy

An isolated highschool boy is haunted by a 6-foot-tall bunny rabbit named Frank who tells him the world will end in exactly 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes, and 12 seconds. What initially seems to be schizophrenia is later revealed as a deep, interconnected time travel and space story through unexplainable events in the movie, and of course, the ending.

The Village (2004) 

Another M. Night Shyamalan classic, a story of an Amish village who willingly remains underground, citing the outside world as an area full of dangerous creatures. But when one of the young villagers becomes ill, a blind girl risks herself and goes to the next village to fetch medicine.

Fight Club (1999)

Giphy

A depressed man and a soap salesman, Tyler Durden, form an underground fight-club and encourage people who are fed-up with their lives to join. In the end, though, the unnamed narrator is exposed to the awful truth about Tyler and his fight club.

To The Boy Who Changed Me

Just another open letter from a crazy ex-girlfriend.

You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
