The Sixth Sense
Strictly in terms of plot, The Sixth Sense isn't that far away from territory mined by Tales From the Crypt and The Twilight Zone. It gives us a story about the walking dead, always a popular topic for Tales From the Crypt (that goes for both the recent HBO television series as well as the original EC comic book), and it provides a tremendous twist in its final minutes--a hallmark of The Twilight Zone. Strictly in terms of plot, The Sixth Sense isn't particularly innovative or surprising. In fact, aficionados of the horror genre will likely have little difficulty seeing the final twist as it approaches.
