9 Most Shocking Movie Plot Twists

  

Some movie plot twists don’t shock anyone and that’s because they aren’t executed properly. When a plot twist is done well though, it can make a good movie great, and there are plenty of examples of this. We have a list of 9 of the most shocking movie plot twists that no one saw coming:

9. Fight Club

Fight Club is regarded as one of the greatest films of the ‘90s and one of the big reasons for this is the movie’s major twist ending when the viewer realizes that the meek and mild narrator (Edward Norton) and the anarchist Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) aren’t some dynamic duo, but are really one person. The narrator has multiple personality disorder and, while the narrator has been sleeping, Durden has been taking over his body and traveling around. To get Durden out of his head at the end of the film, the narrator shoots himself in the face without killing himself, which effectively rids him of Durden.

8. American Psycho

In American Psycho, we see Patrick Bateman murder several people; however, at the end of the movie, when we expect to see decomposing bodies in Paul’s apartment and a police investigation underway, there’s nothing there. It’s vacant and for sale. We also see Bateman in a shootout with the police where two police officers die, and he even leaves a confession on his lawyer’s answering machine, but the following day it is like nothing happened. It turns out that, while Bateman is a lunatic, he’s not a serial killer.
