No one had a problem with the ending? (spoiler)


I mean, why the twins twist ending? It just made everything really silly (not that the idea couldn't work in general, but here it just looks like the obligatory cheap final scare). Even the main character has the "oh no they didn't" expression on his face when he sees the twin. :) Those last few minutes just didn't work. And what's with the twins' ability to just "chill out" after being shot (sure, they die, but apparently feel no pain)? Since when insenity makes you feel no pain and gives you super stamina (and this is a constant clichee in movies)?

I thought this post was about the way the movie ends so abruptly after both villains are finally dead. =P

I actually liked the twist with the twins, although I agree that the other elements you mention were pretty silly.

I would agree with you that it just came off as a cheap way to give the audience That One Last Scare.

What do you think this is, a signature? It's a way of life!

I should have seen this coming, but I didn't.

I thought the twist was great :)

what really disturbed me was the very last scene. I really hated the step father and hoped he would die or at least be rejected by the boy... and yeah, the "twist" with the twins was kind of stupid.

The word is stepfather, and Mike wasn't married to Billy's mother, so he wasn't a stepfather.

I liked the way it started off, then it just fizzled. The twins were stupid.

I didn't mind the reveal of the twins... I would have been more bothered if the other brother wasn't revealed at all because they clearly talked about him earlier in the film and someone other than the original brother offed the sheriff so clearly two guys were in on the murders. The fact that he was a twin didn't bother me much either... while it's a bit cliché for anybody who has seen most of the 80s slashers, I preferred it done that way rather than for some random new actor to show up at the very end to try to finish off the family where his dead brother left off. The fact that they were identical would make sense on why there would be two identical golden necklaces, as well.

I guess it just made perfect sense to me and didn't strike me as random at all, an opinion unlike some others in this thread.
