The Horror Honeys: Friday Favorites: Best Twist Endings Edition

Friday Favorites: Best Twist Endings Edition

In recent years, and thanks to a certain director who shall remain nameless (except for that meme in the corner), the concept of the twist ending has become rather cliche. If a horror director wants to make an impression on an audience right before they walk out the door, BOOM, throw in a twist. Unfortunately, most horror fans just find that the twist is a lazy and annoying way to wrap up your movie when you've run out of plausible options. "He's been dead the whole time!" "It was all a dream!" "He's been dead the whole time AND it was all a dream!" (Don't laugh... that's happened more than once.)

Every so often, however, a twist ending is done right and that, darklings, is magical. So this week, the Honeys have compiled their favorite twist endings (obviously, spoilers ahead.) Some are sick, some are terrifying, but all of them totally caught us off guard the first time we saw them! Do you have a favorite twist ending from a horror film?
