Awesomely Twisted Movies

by B-De | created - 05 Jun 2012 | updated - 28 Dec 2013 | Public

This is a list of movies with ether twisted content, a great twist or a bit of both. Weather they are Horror, comedy or just a little bizarre they all make the list. The order is not 100% as some of these films are hard to compare (ie "fight club" a classic vs "the woman" that nobody has herd of, both great movies in there own right, but would hate to say what ones best)... I will update this list as I see/remember more that need to be here
