15. The Others

And the scares don’t end there, as our next entry is the fantastic Nicole Kidman-fronted horror The Others. This creepy ghost story finishes with a head-spinning twist, revealing that Grace had smothered her two children with a pillow before committing suicide. However, there’s a subtle reference to this revelation earlier in the movie. Grace repeatedly chastises the kids for their breathing, which is in retrospect a very subtle hint relating to the night she smothered them.

14. No Country For Old Men

The Coen brothers reached a new peak in their movie-making careers with the release of the 2007 neo-western drama No Country For Old Men. And for you plot-clue hunters, there’s also a very apparent secret that probably passed you by. The film opens with Moss attempting to hunt an elk but failing to kill it. This is a mirroring of the movie’s finale, which sees Moss attempting and failing to kill Anton Chigurh. It turns out that it’s a metaphor for Moss not being a natural-born hunter.
