Movies that dramatically switch halfway through

Movies that switch genres midway through the movie. The tone changes, the atmosphere changes. The second half of the movie is very different from the first half.

First up...From Dusk Til Dawn.

First half of the movie is a roadtrip with a kidnapping. Tense and creepy.

Second half is balls out vampires and gore and killings.

Yeah that's because each half had a different director

Monty Python’s Meaning of Life is like 7. 8 if you count The Crimson Permanent Assurance.

Meaning of Life is just a series of sketches that are more or less related to each other. Holy Grail is the same, though it gets a little more tightly bound.

They only made one movie that had something like a single plot.

You don’t say. 

Point is, it's not a shift in tone if you don't have a single narrative all the way through it.

And the tone doesn't even shift; it's silly all the way through.

They should’ve made a weekly tv show using that model.
