I would also think a particular risk in using revelations to get an ending is making sure they're an actual true twist and not a "mindfuck".

In science-fiction, the last minute twist is almost a convention, somewhat cemented by THE TWILIGHT ZONE but seen in other stories like THE WAR OF THE WORLDS, TWELVE MONKEYS, BLADE RUNNER, and others. But even those can run the risk of being essentially a mindfuck or deus ex machina that ruins the story.

And of course, the murder mystery subgenre necessitates a revelation for an ending, and all these problems can still ruin the ending.
