Without a doubt, we've all been in the theater or on the couch watching a movie when something unexpected happens. Not a conventional twist, but something magical that no one could have called in a million years. There's no hard-and-fast rule for when a movie is going to get supernatural. Many of the films here are sequels that have run out of ideas, but just as many of them are standalone movies that were sold as grounded pieces of fiction.
Just because a movie takes a magical turn at random doesn't mean it's bad. A lot of the films included here have a WTF factor that makes them a fun watch even if it's only a one-time viewing. That being said, some of the entries that are part of a beloved series will leave you screaming "Why?" into the void.
Let us know which of these movies really took a turn for the supernatural out of nowhere, and which tonal changes you totally saw coming.
