Click

analogy Verb
To surprise the audience with a sad twist ending. The ending abruptly changes the mood of the movie, book, etc. from generally humorous or light to mournful and sad.
 
"That movie totally clicked me, I didn't expect him to just die like that."
Etymology : Coming from the title of the movie "Click". "Click" was, like all Adam Sandler movies, funny and light-hearted until a sudden and unexpected sad ending that makes men weep. In the movie, "click" referred to the sound of a remote control. That meaning of the word came from 13th century Old French "cliquer".
Source : My friend first used it around October 2011.
