Movies with unexpected endings

So, before you are American thrillers, the ending of which can be predicted by few.

Psychological thrillers

The more tense and stronger the atmosphere of the film, the better, at least when it comes to a thriller. In this category, maximum attention is paid to psychological pressure, and minimal attention is paid to gory details, falling off parts of the body and scenes that are disgusting to most people. Of course, in some films there will be deaths, and injuries, and other things inherent in horror films, but you will not have to focus on them at all.

So, if you like to scare yourself but don't like movies that are more unpleasant than scary to watch, you've come to the right place: here are the best American thrillers in the psychological subcategory.

Before you, the second most popular after the psychological American thrillers. You may not believe in the existence of supernatural forces, creatures and worlds, but it is interesting to watch ghosts, poltergeists, demons and other otherworldly creatures, as well as frightened people and fighters against evil spirits. And most importantly, it is safe, because judging by the films, meetings with something that goes beyond human stereotypes usually do not end well.

The opponents of the main characters will be evil forces, bloodthirsty (or not so) otherworldly monsters, powerful people and even death itself, which has a peculiar sense of humor. In most cases, there is not much blood in the films, but there is more than enough psychological pressure, almost like in the previous category. Turn off the lights, turn on your chosen movie and enjoy (be afraid):
