10 Movies With Post-Credits Scenes That Change Everything

10. Cloverfield

Leave it to J.J. Abrams to leave us with a cryptic message at the end of the credits that dramatically changes our perspective of the film. At the end of Cloverfield, the 2008 monster movie directed by Matt Reeves, a bomb goes off in New York City. It kills our main characters, Rob and Beth, but presumably while taking out the monster too. Or maybe not. At the very end of the credits, we hear a mysterious voice saying what at first sounds like €œhelp us.€ Maybe it's Rob and Beth begging for help after surviving the explosion? But when this audio is reversed, it€™s actually pretty clear that the voice is saying €œit€™s still alive.€ Who€™s the person we€™re hearing? Who knows. But this little bit is a clear indication that the monster was not actually destroyed by the bomb, leaving us with a setup for a potential sequel. Even if not a sequel hook, this knowledge that the monster wasn€™t killed at all gives the ending a whole new darkness to it. Rob and Beth died horribly, and their death was kind of pointless. They were killed because of the military dropping a bomb that didn€™t even work, and plenty of more people are probably about to die. In a five second piece of audio, our reading of the movie and its ending dramatically changes. That€™s J.J. Abrams for you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXskaIJ7V0Q
