Unexpected Horror Plot Twists

I am going to discuss a few movies without giving away the endings if you haven't seen them that have strange, confusing, and clever plot twists. I'll link the ones that are available free online and show you where to watch the ones that aren't without paying a mint! They are in no necessary order from best to worst, this is just a list.

1.   Gothika (2003) - a film which stars Halle Berry and Robert Downey Jr. Halle portrays a psychiatrist who gets in a car accident nobody bears witness to and she winds up waking up in the very asylum in which she practices. She has to figure out what the hell happened, why she got there, and who committed the horrifying crime for which she is accused.

Gothika is available on Netflix.

Gothika is also available on Amazon & Amazon Prime, Vudu, and iTunes.

Its also available below if you don't have an Amazon Prime Subscription.

If you sign up with the link I just posted, you get 30 days free and you can cancel at any time during or at the end of the 30 days if you choose not to keep your subscription.

2.  The Uninvited (2009) - Emily Browning stars in this thriller, which is the American version of the 2003 South Korean film, A Tale of Two Sisters, in which she returns home from a psychiatric hospital visit which resulted following the death of her mother.  When she arrives home, Anna is shocked to discover that her father has recently gotten engaged to Rachel (Elizabeth Banks), her mother's former nurse. 

Anna's suspicions about Rachel are quickly realized to be true when her deceased mother contacts her from the beyond the grave to warn the girl and her sister to try and convince their father that Rachel is not who he thinks she is. 

You can watch The Univited on YouTube, MGo, Vudu, Amazon, Best Buy's Cinema Now, and iTunes.

Its Korean version, A Tale of Two Sisters is available on Netflix.

3.  Lost Highway (1997) - This one was really weird.  I still don't think I get it all these years later.  Fred Madison (Bill Pullman), a musician, receives a message from an unknown man on his front door intercom saying, "Dick Laurent is dead." When he looks out his window nobody is there, but he hears the faint sound of police sirens.

The next day, there is a random package on his front doorstep with a video tape of inside his house.  After their evening lovins seesion, Fred sees Renee's face as that of a pale old man. Another weird tape shows up showing inside their house and frames of he and his wife in bed sleeping. They call the cops, but two detectives Al and Ed say that there's nothing they can do about it, but agree to keep an eye out.

That evening, Fred and Renee go out to a party held by Andy where Fred meets a creepy old guy played by Robert Blake clas in all black.  Oddly, his face looks like the one he saw on his wife's head after a lovins session the other night.

He actually tells Fred that he is at his house right now. Fred phones his house and the voice of the creepy guy answers his phone while he's standing right in front of him.  Fred walks away and asks Andy who the guy is and and he says he's a friend of Dick Laurent.

The next day, another random tape arrives and Fred watches it alone. I can't say what happens next, but its a really weird flick and you have no idea what's going on until the end.  I still haven't figured it out, but it was entertaining and has a killer soundtrack, which includes music from NIN, Marilyn Manson, and David Bowie.

You can watch it on Netflix, Amazon, Amazon Prime, Blockbuster, and Daily Motion

4.  The Attic (2008) - After her family moves into a new house, Emma starts to see visions of her dead twin sister. For her, the attic of her Victorian house may deliver the answer to her questions, but when she starts going up there, she starts getting all crazy.
