Starring  James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Betty Buckley, Haley Lu-Richardson, Jessica Sula

M. Night’s best film in damn-near fifteen years, a return to his former glory that included original films like Signs, Sixth Sense, and, best of all, Unbreakable. Those films were fifties B-film material made with top actors, serious artistry, and a seriousness which those genres usually lack. Split follows in that vein crafting a psychological horror film around James McAvoy’s career best performance(s). He plays Kevin, a man juggling 23 personalities in his fractured mind, with three of them being particularly dangerous. They kidnap three pretty teenage girls and hold them hostage for some unnamed event. Tense, surprising, genre-bending fare.
