A new thriller from M. Night Shymalan? The twist must be it's a good movie. (ba-dum-pssh!)
But seriously, Split stars James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Betty Buckley, Haley Lu Richardson, and Jessica Sula.
"While the mental divisions of those with dissociative identity disorder have long fascinated and eluded science, it is believed that some can also manifest unique physical attributes for each personality, a cognitive and physiological prism within a single being. Though Kevin has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher, there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey, Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him - as well as everyone around him - as the walls between his compartments shatter apart."
Well that's that, James McAvoy is officially an awesome actor!
Also, there is hope for M. Night to make more good movies after all.
This film was well-crafted, and kept an underlying sense of dread throughout.
VERY GOOD STUFF.
