1. Jacob's Ladder (1990)

“I watched that movie too young, mistaking it for a regular horror movie. I wanted to get scared, not depressed,” one person confessed. “That movie gave my dad legit flashbacks,” recalled another.

2. 12 Monkeys (1995)

3. Fight Club (1999)

4. The Prestige (2006)

“One great scene is when he's talking about the old magician's trick with the fish bowl. The reason why it's so evident to Christian Bale that the magician is acting about being bow-legged is that Christian Bale is actively living the same life and lying to everyone about who he is. So he's doing the same trick,” another suggested.

5. Shutter Island (2010)

“Watch it twice. Once you know the ending, it's an entirely different movie the second time—kind of like Fight Club,” one suggested. “I'm glad I'm not the only one on this. The movie messed me up the first time, but I've watched it a few times since, and it's a different experience. The book is even crazier,” another added.

6. Identity (2003)

Identity” is a clever play on And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie (1939). But, that said, it a phenomenal film that gets severely overlooked,” one said. “Identity was one of the few movies that caught me off guard with the twist,” another person informed.

7. Memento (2000)

“I saw Memento two times. What was that, like 18-20 years ago? I can still describe to a person who hasn't seen it what the movie is about,” someone confessed. “When my wife first saw Memento, right at the end, she said, Wait, what? And she immediately started the movie over and watched it a second time,” another shared. 

8. Tenet (2020)

Tenet messes with your mind because you don't know what is going on for some time,” one person said. “You never actually figure out what's going on in Tenet,” another person joked. “But Robert Pattinson gave a phenomenal performance.

9. The Game (1997)

Another stated, “My husband and I went into this movie without knowing the premise. In the first twist, we were like, whoa, crazy! And then it just kept getting crazier. We just stared at each other after the ending, completely blown away.”
