One of the worst things a film can do is feel predictable and the genre that suffers from this the most is horror. With so many releases, these projects can end up feeling like a blur due to just how similar they can be.

It also doesn't help that a lot of scary movies contain time-tested troops such as the main cast splitting up or the mirror jump scare that will leave savvy audience members unimpressed.

But a good horror film manages to go beyond the mold and prove that while the genre is vast, it can still manage to deliver a few surprises here and there. This can happen with genuine twists that leave people speechless, brief unexpected moments of humor, or just a great subversion of audience expectations. Regardless of the reason, these elements help turn your standard scary movie into a great one.

Let's take a look, then, at some of the most recent insane moments from the horror genre that range from the shocking to the hilarious. As these will consist of plot points, spoiler warning to those who haven't these films.

10. Improvised Cushion - Fall

Scream 6

2022's Fall takes fear to new heights as friends Becky and Hunter decide to climb a 2000-foot radio tower. Naturally, things don't go according to plan and the pair are left stuck on top of the structure with the risk of dehydration or falling from a huge height.

The film has a mid-story twist where we find out that Hunter had died moments earlier and is just a hallucination of poor Becky. You see, the former tried to leap to safety in an earlier sequence where audiences were left to believe she made it. In reality, the daredevil missed her jump and died; her corpse rotting below our heroine.

Knowing that her cell phone will only send messages on the lower ground, Becky uses her friend's body and inserts her device inside. She then sends her SOS and throws the corpse off-screen in order to successfully send her text.

And wouldn't you know it, the film cuts to Becky's father as the authorities successfully bring the young girl down. It just happens that in order to do this, she had to use poor Hunter's body to protect her phone.
