Twist ending Movies , Mind Bending Movies, Mind boggling Movies

*Twisted Endings
*Mind benders
*Movies that make you go through shocks, skip heartbeats,
hammer your brains to rewind and watch things again.

P.S: i am still searching for more of such mind benders which really shock me... I have seen;

Requiem for a dream
District 9
Psycho
Inglorious basterds
Reservoir Dogs
One flew over the cuckoo's nest
Unbreakable
The Game, etc...

but they are far less appealing, disturbing and twisted. Only the best ones are included here.

Btw, I am still looking for more movies to find such mind benders... Next on the watch-list are Primer, Following, The usual suspects, Source code, etc..

I will be updating the list as i find new ones that take me for an unexpected roller coaster ride!.
