We all know the great plot twists of cinema, from The Usual Suspects to Citizen Kane… and if you don’t, I’m not going to spoil them for you. Because this article isn’t about great, surprising movie scenes–it’s about the predictable ones. The times when the director expected shock and awe from his audience and only received yawns and snores. Some of these are sad, others funny, some even controversial, but all are bound by the common thread of the surprise fail.

10. Saw II: Daniel’s in the Safe

Most people agree that Saw II was released before the franchise started going down hill (while other would suggest it didn’t have anywhere to descend to), but I’m not so sure. There’s at least one plot twist predicated entirely on a disastrously bad pun: Jigsaw tells the main character that he’ll find Daniel, his son, in a “safe… state” while the camera lingers near a mid-sized industrial safe. We’re then expected to be surprised when that safe opens several scenes later and reveals that Daniel was inside all along. The only reason this painfully predictable, bad pun of a twist doesn’t rank higher is that it’s from the Saw movies, so did you really expect better?
