in your opinion which slasher has the best twist ending?
mine is Sleepaway Camp
I like the Happy Birthday To Me twist ending. Never saw that coming when I first watched the movie back in the day.
Yeah, Sleepaway Camp definitely puts all the others to shame.
Other slasher twists that deserve recognition:
Friday the 13th
April Fool's Day
Dressed to Kill
Happy Birthday to Me
My Bloody Valentine (both versions, really)
And ones that deserve it in a bad way:
A Day of Judgment
Don't Go in the Woods
I'm gonna go with Girls Nite Out. I honestly don't remember if the twist was an obvious one or not, (haven't seen it since 1984) but I remember the way it was presented genuinely gave me the creeps.
Pieces surprised me when I first saw it.
(wait, you didn't mean literally?)
oh how could i forget April Fool's Day...that is a great twist
Yeah, all the ones rhett listed!
My personal favorite "twist ending" slashers are April Fools Day and Sleepaway Camp.
Happy Birthday to Me, April Fools Day, The Initiation, Dont Look Now, Dressed to Kill, Sisters, Sleepaway Camp, Sleepaway Camp 5.
Terror Train. I have never known anyone to figure out the ending before it happens.
I was looking over all the slashers I'd seen to try and remember the endings, and from what I remember Terror Train is pretty straight forward. What did I forget?
Did the killer have a sex change operation or something? It wasn't Copperfield, was it? It's been awhile, but I do remember that at the start you saw the prank, and then the rest of the movie was the killer exacting revenge using the different masks. Then he's pwned by Ben Johnson and falls off the train into all that Canadian snow. Again, seems straight forward, but I imagine I'm forgetting something about the killer's final reveal.
April Fool's Day...I seriously didn't see that coming. Knowing how many '80s slashers got "slashed" by the MPAA, I just assumed April Fool's Day was another victim. TOTALLY didn't see that ending coming. Sleepaway Camp I think tops them all, though. Such a mindfuck of an ending. Wow.
I remember being incredibly disappointed with the ending to Happy Birthday to Me. In all honesty, I think it's a perfect slasher and that the ending just ruins it because it just ends up being stupid. (It's like how the fuck could she have pulled that off!?) To me it just seemed very sloppy and half-assed.
Did anyone mention Unhinged that has got to be one helluva twist, and definitely top ten.
Copperfield was a red herring, it turns out to be his assistant that is the killer in drag. The way he/she is shot throughout the film though makes it pretty hard to tell that it is a guy.
Ahh, that's right. That was good. That trick was better than any of Copperfield's throughout the movie!
But he did have those sweet dance moves.
Yeah, but Lou did it better a year before in Prom Night.
Just finished DEADLY GAMES. Add that to the list of bad twist endings. What a piece of shit.
haha I pretty much enjoyed that one. It's grade-Z fodder but I thought it had it's entertaining bad moments. Well, at least it kept me entertained
