Split

Split

James McAvoy stars in master storyteller M. Night Shyamalan‘s latest, SPLIT, an edge-of-your seat nailbiter that follows the intense (and to-be-expected – always twisting) story of three girls who are kidnapped by a man diagnosed with 23 unique, distinct personalities. Can they escape before the emergence of an even more frightening 24th personality? Also starring Anya Taylor-Joy (THE WITCH), Betty Buckley, and Haley Lu Richardson

“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.”

SPLIT serves as a dramatic tour de force for James McAvoy in multiple roles — and finds writer-director M. Night Shyamalan returning resoundingly to thrilling form.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

“The movie’s simultaneous evocation of both the depravity at work beneath society’s deceptive surfaces and the inadequacy of the liberal technocratic order to defend against that depravity is the secret to its success.” (The New Yorker)

SPLIT is [Shyamalan’s] most thoughtful film in years, and one that contains ideas and feelings that resonate on a deep, visceral level.” (ScreenCrush)

The Gentlemen Hecklers Present Birdemic: Shock and Terror

Anything else you need to know about (other than writer-director-producer James Nguyen‘s ornithological nightmare, widely regarded as one of the worst films ever made, was… Continue Reading
