The ending of 'Sixth Sense' certainly was unexpected to me!

The Sixth Sense and The Others have the best. There are a few movies that would not be that great of movies without the revelation toward the ending, such as Orphan, whereby the very "twist" clears up just about all suspension of disbelief found in all events leading up to it.

I would, but IMDb dosen't considered 'Identity' a horror movie. It is considered 'thriller and mystery'.

Good idea. My vote would go to 'Psycho' or 'The Others.'

Since you list the movies, not the twists themselves, I suggest changing the intro a bit; perhaps something like:

Which of the following horror movies features your favorite twist?

FYC:
House on the Haunted Hill (1959)
Friday the 13th (1980)
Haute tension (2003)
Saw (2004) (to be honest I almost forgot how great this franchise starter was. Ending left me rather impressed as Fear Factory's "Bite the Hand That Feeds You" started playing on the end credits, a great fit for the movie, as well)
Trick 'r Treat (2007)

Although I've got to admit: Split (2016) will probably have my vote. I love everything about that ending. I mean, I love everything about Psycho (1960) and A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), but in terms of sheer greatness of ending Split is rather unique. It's just... It was practically never done before in that respect. It's unique.
