The Witch and five movies on Netflix with shocking twists

With many shows on break and movie theaters on pause until mid-July, streaming services are out go-to for entertainment! Call us biased, but there’s no stopping Netflix. Though a few of its productions have had to shut down due to the COVID-19 spread, the streaming titan continues to dish out incredible content weekly.

If you feel like you’ve seen it all, we’re listing five movies on Netflix with shocking twists. It’s a fun mix of movies, particularly if you are into suspense.

While we highly recommend you tune in to fun and happy content, such as feel-good comedies and romantic comedies, during these times, it’s exciting to change things up with a good twist. Audiences enjoy breaking out of the regular routine and welcome surprises.

Sure, some twists and shocks are better than others, and some may even be disappointing, but if you are looking to escape the world for a couple of hours and become invested in a story, we’ve got five great selections.

The list below includes horror, drama, and one movie with an event we didn’t see coming at all.
