Too many movies and shows with twist endings make it evident that the directors are looking for a simple way to deceive the audience. Twist endings may surprise viewers or push the narrative in unexpected places, but that doesn’t mean they always make perfect sense. Many twist endings ruin the masterpiece, and this is often due to the unexpected revelation’s lack of coherent consistency. Here are some of the ‘Epic Movies & Shows Ruined By Wildly Stupid Twist Endings.’
This 2004 film directed by M. Night Shyamalan depicts the residents of a 19th-century town who are unable to escape owing to the monsters that dwell in the woods. By the end of the film, we’ve learned that the two most evident plot twists have both occurred. The narrative takes place in the current day, and the creatures are fictional. Given how disturbing and aesthetically appealing the entire film is, it’s a major disappointment.
How I Met Your Mother?
The conclusion of How I Met Your Mother gets so many things wrong that it’s hard to believe anybody thought it was a good idea. Finally offering audiences clarity into how Ted Mosby and his future wife Tracy met, the film flashes through their whole relationship in a flicker, then tells us that Tracy has been dead the entire time. Worse, Ted then tells his kids that he’s been telling them this prolonged, convoluted narrative with a divinely terrible conclusion so that he can beg their approval to start seeing his ex-girlfriend Robin again since their mother has passed away.
John Hancock is an eternal superhuman with no recollection of his existence 80 years ago. Because of his rampant drunkenness, he attempts to save the day but typically ends up inflicting more harm than good. Hancock rescues a public relations expert named Ray, who promises to help Hancock’s public image be restored. The only issue is that Ray’s wife, Mary, is also superhuman. She tells Hancock that they are married and have been married for thousands of years, but being close to one another is slowly turning them mortal. As a result, Hancock does the only sane thing and travels to the moon. Sheer waste!
Without a second thought, the last season killed our expectations like nothing else and turned out to be a complete waste. The fantasy epic offers some nice set pieces in its concluding hours, but that’s about it, with hurried emotional kickbacks and obviously unnecessary character executions. Dany loses her wits without warning, the wicked Cersei becomes a sufferer, and Jaime Lannister is slaughtered while racing back to his sister, despite his honorable evolution. The shock that Dany was meant to be just like her father is evident but poorly handled, and the closing minutes, in which Bran, of all people, is proclaimed king carelessly, just add insult to injury. It’s an ending full of twists and turns, and none of them land.
Marie and Alex, two female friends, head to Alex’s parents’ house for the weekend in this 2003 French horror thriller. Marie is left battling for her life when a mysterious guy appears in the dead of night and begins executing family members. Hight Tension, as the title suggests, contains a lot of stressful situations that will keep even seasoned horror lovers on the verge of giving up. The tension is shattered, however, as Marie is unveiled to be the assassin, effectively rewriting everything we’ve seen so far, including several encounters between Marie and the fictitious killer that could never have happened.
