Top Definition
A phrase used to point out a major twist in a film, conversation, or story.

The phrase originates from Shymalan's notorious reliance on twist endings. It usually holds a scornful connotation, due to the lackluster quality of many of Shymalan's recent films.

It is most commonly seen on boards such as Reddit, Tumblr, or 4chan.
