Doc's Profoundly Twisted Listby DrNostromo | created - 15 Aug 2012 | updated - 2 weeks ago | Public
This is my list of movies with the most profound twist. Now I'm not talking about movies that make the viewer go, "Oh, I didn't expect it to be them", or, "I didn't see that coming". I'm talking about twists that are so profound that they completely change your perception of everything you've seen so far. Come up with any others, make a comment and, if I think it fits, I'll be glad to add it.
Please note that I may not be able to reply to your comments as IMDb won't let me without attaching a Facebook acct to my acct here and I refuse to do that. But I do read your comments daily.
