One of the most famous plot twists of all time has to be the one in The Sixth Sense, which captivated audiences when the film came out in 1999. In fact, it was probably on the strength of that plot twist alone that the film became such a smash hit, even receiving multiple Academy Award nominations.

That twist has been parodied multiple times, including in the Scary Movie series and become a pop culture phenomenon. And despite that, the film is still very much worth a watch. Too bad M. Night Shyamalan has struggled to top it since.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor glock_baby asked the online community,

"What movie do you think has the best plot twist?"

Saw (2004)

"Saw. When Jigsaw got up off the floor blew my mind."

This one is a pretty revolutionary twist that influenced so many horror films thereafter. Too bad the rest of the series kept introducing twists to the point where it just got silly.

The Skeleton Key (2005)

"The Skeleton Key had stuck with me as not many movies can pull the "the hero is f*cked" twist very well."

This film is very underrated. A decent horror film that came out during a slew of terrible studio efforts. The ending is good stuff.

The Others (2001)

"The Others. I saw that movie a single time 20 years when I was a kid and the twist stuck with me. It was pretty great."

If you liked The Others, check out The Innocents (1961), from which The Others takes a lot of inspiration.

Memento (2000)

"I feel like I should have seen it coming but I genuinely didn't expect it."

Mossenpay

Good choice. Worth seeing for Guy Pearce's great performance alone.

Primal Fear (1996)

"Primal Fear. This is one solid movie. And when he starts clapping at the end I couldn't believe all this time he had the wool pulled over all our eyes."

HighJumper81

This is also the movie that put Edward Norton on the map, and we should be grateful.

The Usual Suspects (1995)

"The Usual Suspects. Favorite thing about that movie is you have no idea what was true and what was made up."

FlickFreak

This one is very satisfying and has been mimicked multiple times since!

The Prestige (2006)

"I'm convinced that Chris Nolan is obsessed with plots that make the viewer watch multiple times. Sometimes it works like Prestige and sometimes it doesn't like Tenet, but it's always a unique take to filmmaking."

This one is definitely worth revisiting. For those of you who are interested, you can rent it on Apple TV for just a few bucks!

Orphan (2009)

"Orphan. Never in a million years would I have guessed THAT plot twist."

StarWarsChristian

Too bad the trailers kept insisting that no one would guess the ending. Still worth a watch, though, with some great acting!

Frailty (2001)

"Frailty. I started to get suspicious near the end but it still took me a bit by surprise."

I saw this again after I realized it was on HBO Max and it was well worth revisiting.

Se7en (1995)

"Se7en. Kevin Spacey plays such an incredible creep. Turns out he wasn’t necessarily acting."

Rouguespiffy

That he does. Unnerving to think about and realize after the fact, huh?

Hopefully you don't mind reading spoilers–or the suggestion of spoilers–for films that are in some cases more than 20 years old.

Regardless, these are worth seeing, so you can appreciate these films for what they are.

Some people are far more conscious of their health than others.

Be it out of obligation or self-interest, many people make a point of avoiding certain foods and products, and partaking in extreme diets and exercise plans.

Which doesn't mean they avoid unhealthy habits or products altogether.

Indeed, all of us are probably unaware that we all likely partake in eating food, using products, or even performing what might seem like everyday activities which could be harmful to our health.

Be it by happenstance or obligation.

I'm always stunned by bad parenting.

And I see it far too often.

People need a license to drive.

A license to fish.

But having kids?

Let anybody do it. Sure.

So many kids deserve better.

CW: Suicide.

Finding a dead body is one of my worst fears.

The only one I've ever found was my grandma's.

She was dying of cancer so it wasn't horrific.

Blood makes me faint, so any horrific scenes will not go well for me.
