Live Poll: The Twist Endings We Didn't See

So I had an idea for a poll. I came up with one option. And then everything ground to a halt.

So, please, give me some suggestions!
------------------------------

Let's ruin some popular films by adding horrifying twist endings! Which of these is the worst?

List: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls068809487

Life of David Gale: In the last minute, we see David Gale as the real murderer hence proving that he "deserved" the death penalty thus contradicting his own argument about the execution of innocents... no wait, that really happened! Ugh!

Cinderella: they got married and lived happily ever after until a group of zombies came and eat their brains.

I haven't seen David Gale - are you saying it already had the terrible twist ending?

Exactly, the real ending matches your description so perfectly it's scary.

It's a Wonderful Life (1946) - George Bailey wakes up feverishly from a dream in an insane asylum. Clarence turns out to be his roommate. The apparent alternate reality in which George was not born is the true reality of what happened after George became insane as a young boy.

Snicker. I will never watch Casablanca the same way again. ;-) I'm pondering about the Simpson's alternate It's a Wonderful Life ending.

 For your consideration:

Miracle on 34th Street (1947) - The dream home that Kris Kringle finds for Susan Walker, Doris Walker and Fred Gailey burns to the ground due to the Christmas tree catching fire.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) - After the coffin with the body of Spock lands on on the Genesis Planet, the planet becomes unstable and explodes.

A Christmas Carol (1951) - Ebenezer Scrooge chokes to death while eating Christmas dinner with the Cratchitt family.

Excellent suggestions, call me crazy but I like when movies end unexpectedly, these all would be bittersweet endings. It might be even better if Santa caused the fire coming down the chimney to deliver the gifts.

Jen,

I was thinking about this poll while driving. It must be a sign that I really like this poll or that I've lost my mind.

The Wizard of Oz (1939) - The sheriff and Miss Gulch arrive at the farm to claim Toto.

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) - 81 years later, a US president finds out that the location the Ark in the government warehouse. This president and his staff suffer the same fate as the Nazis, when they try to remove the Ark from the crate.

Bambi (1942) - Bambi is contentedly nibbling the grass, seemingly unaware of his impending encounter with Godzilla. Bambi Meets Godzilla and Godzilla stomps Bambi. Bambi does not survive.

Is there a better way to word this? You have "at the end" and "even in the end" in the same sentence.

Bhuvan's team looses the match and there's no hope left even in the end. 

(Just remove "at the end" from the first time and add "the" before match as it was the only match played between Indians and British people)

Jen,

I hope you haven't given up on this poll suggestion.

Groundhog Day (1993)
A second scene of Phil and Rita waking up together on February 3rd is shown. It’s implied that Phil and Rita will repeat February 3rd until they resolve another unresolved issue.

Sorry Dan. These suggestions are shifted off the front page so quickly and are then easily forgotten. I'm not a fan of the suggestions you made two weeks ago but I will add the Groundhog Day option (changing it slightly).
