“You’ve emailed for an appointment two days in a roll. Tell me what’s going on? I’ve never seen a case like this before, twenty-three identities that live in Kevin’s body. Did something happen?” Well…the new trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s psychological supernatural thriller ‘Split’ certainly gave me the heebie jeebies. “There’s a man here. He abducted us and he’s going to kill us. There’s a flower on the pillows a flower in the bathroom like we’re important.” James McAvoy stars as Kevin, a man with multiple personalities who abducts three young women, and entraps them in a what appears to be a dungeon or secured basement.
“What are we doing here? What the hell is going on?” Compelled to abduct the teenage girls, 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.
‘Split’ delves into the mysterious recesses of one man’s fractured, gifted mind. “There is no limit to what he can become. I’ve never seen a case like this before, 23 identities within Kevin’s body. An individual with multiple personalities can change their body chemistry with their thoughts.”
“The human brain is the most complex object in the universe. The beast is real.” As the three teens are haunted by their predicament and are unable to escape this madman, a 24th and final personality – “The Beast” – begins to emerge. They begin to meet all his 23 personalities, from a little boy to a sophisticated woman, and the nightmare truly begins.
Written & directed by M. Night Shyamalan, with a cast that also includes Anya Taylor-Joy, Haley Lu Richardson, Kim Director, Jessica Sula, Sterling K. Brown, Betty Buckley and Brad William Henke, the multiple personalities psychological thriller is now available on Blu-ray.
The concept is intriguing, what do you think?
