X Men star James McAvoy plays an unbelievable character – one with 23 personalities (!) in the horror/thriller Split. Directed by the once master-of-twists Manoj Night Shyamlan, the trailer gives you the chills! Watch it below:
Besides McAvoy, the movie also stars The Witch star Anya Taylor-Joy as the lead abducted girl. She’s quite a name for herself in the horror and thriller genre, as she also stars in the sci-fi thriller Morgan coming later this year. The rest of the cast includes Betty Buckley, Jessica Sula, and Haley Lu Richardson. Shyamalan found his mojo with the creepy hit The Visit last year and here’s hoping this movie does not disappoint! Here is the synopsis of Split:
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 (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), 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 (Anya Taylor-Joy, The Witch), 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 releases 20th January, 2017.
