7 Good Films Ruined By Terrible Plot Twists
5. The Witch
The low budget horror film The Witch received positive reviews when it was released in 2015; however, there was one blaring issue with the film – the plot twist at the end, which comes out of nowhere when it is revealed that the goat, Black Phillip, is the Devil and he’s been infecting the family. The story becomes even more confusing when the family’s only surviving member, Thomasin, seems to sell her soul to the devil and is led out of the woods by Black Phillip where she joins a coven of witches dancing around a bonfire. It needed more explanation to be effective.
4. Iron Man 3
Iron Man fans were deeply dissatisfied with Iron Man 3’s plot twist, which involved The Mandarin (played by Ben Kingsley) not actually being The Mandarin, but instead being some random guy named Trevor, who was hired by the movie’s real villain, Aldrich Killian (played by Guy Pierce), to distract from Killian’s real schemes. Trevor, as it turns out, was more of a buffoon. He was a boozed up, formerly homeless actor acting as The Mandarin in exchange for drugs and boats. Fans found it really unexpected, but not in a good way. The Mandarin was one of Iron Man’s arch-nemeses, and this character was anything but.
