There's nothing like a good surprise to totally throw you for a loop at the end—or in the middle—of a really good movie. Whether it makes a thriller even more thrilling or a classic that much more surprising, we love a plot twist that leaves us reeling for days. Which is why we've put together this list of movies with plot twists that you won't be able to stop thinking about. No spoilers, we promise. (Except, you know, that there's a big twist.)

An instant horror classic, director Jordan Peele delivered an incisive social commentary that kept us guessing the entire film.

Honestly, this cast is killer. Forget the twist (even though it's a good one), we just love to see Oscar Isaac busting out some moves on the dance floor.
The Sixth Sense
Starring: Haley Joel Osment, Bruce Willis, Toni Collette, Donnie Wahlberg, Olivia Williams
