Bag of bones

The best movie I swear the only bad part is it's so long but anyways The narrator, Mike Noonan, a bestselling novelist, suffers severe writer's block after his pregnant wife Jo suddenly dies in an accident. Four years later, Mike, still grieving, is plagued by nightmares set at his summer house in TR-90 (an unincorporated town named for its map coordinates), Maine. He decides to confront his fears and moves to his vacation house on Dark Score Lake, known as Sara Laughs. On his first day, he meets Kyra, a 3-year-old girl and her young widowed mother, 21-year-old Mattie Devore. Mattie's father-in-law is Max Devore, an elderly rich man who will do anything to gain custody of his granddaughter, Kyra. Drawn to Kyra and Mattie, Mike hires John Storrow, a custody lawyer, for Mattie, and things start looking up.

What looked like a typical movie where a former junky girl starts seeing ghosts but no one believes her seems predictable, right? WRONG! A couple moves into Mollys childhood home and she starts hearing voices of her father who btw sexually assaulted her as a child but also passed away some years earlier. She keeps loosing control of her actions abd no one believes her. SPOILER: The fact is, we dont know wth happened. Was she possed or did she go

Dead silence

So basically if u havent seeny he movie, a guy and his wife had just gotten a doll in the mail. He finds it creepy, but she insists on keeping it. When he leaves the house and comes back, she's dead, with no trace of murder evidence. So he takes the doll back to his hometown because he remembers a poem about a creepy old lady who "had no children only dolls" and her name was Mary shaw. Turns out his father's dating someone new and it's creepy because deaths start going around town and their dead bodies have only their tongue ripped out. In Her notes, she talked about making the perfect doll. Mary Shawn's rhyme "or she'll rip tongue out at the seam" turnsoutreason Mary shawl was killedbecause a relative of his ha beemissing and she was blamed and she'd been trying to kill off the rest of his ancestors thru her dolls. She was posing as his father's girlfriend and kills protagonist (spoiler alert) His father was killed a LONG TIME AGO and HE was the perfect doll. she was using his tongue

The Bird with the Crystal Plumage

This film is about an American writer, Sam, who had briefly witnessed a struggle between a woman and a mysterious black-gloved assailant dressed in a raincoat at a small art gallery in Rome. The woman was stabbed and the other person escapes. However, the woman, Monica, managed to survive and the police decided to keep Sam's passport as they considered him an important witness to what may be the dangerous maniac they have been trying to find who had already killed three women. But Sam just couldn't remember clearly what he had seen in the art gallery and feels that there was something odd to it. After the incident, the killer had tried to kill him and kept taunting him with phone calls. The killer had even tried to kill his girlfriend and had also continued to murder more women. Some of the suspects were Monica's husband, who seemed very suspicious, Sam's friend Carlo and even an unknown man who had tried to kill him. However, in the end the shocking truth was revealed....

The Skeleton Key

The Skeleton Key ending is one of my favorites. One of the biggest surprises ever. What I also like about it is that it wasn't just got a single moment but keeps going. It starts with "The circle you've built around yourself isn't to keep us out, it's to keep you in!" (or something like that) Then the whole reveal starts and just keeps going. The souls of the servants were transferred to the children and they keep looking for new young bodies. The final scene shows our protagonist now trapped in the body of the old woman. I never saw it coming!
