Most 70's movie ending (Spoilers for Death Game)


Death Game


Out of nowhere. Major characters die. Weird color filter. Jaunty song over credits.


Yup. That checks all the boxes.

All right. I see your Death Game and raise you one:

Dirty Mary Crazy Larry

And, uh...spoilers obviously.

Holy shit!!

Reminds me of Vanishing Point (not really a shock ending) and Electra Glide in Blue.

What was the deal with the 70's and vehicles and shock endings?

How about Zabriskie Point. So, the movie's done, let's randomly blow shit up to the music of Pink Floyd.

Parallax View: the Watergate-era downer ending comes out of nowhere, like the others upthread; only you realize, after it happens, that, no, it didnít come out of nowhere, itís one of them there Oh Thatís What Was Going On All Along bits.
