With The Visit, M. Night Shyamalan reminded audiences he still had exceedingly creepy ideas. Especially for gerontophobics. Riding the found-footage film's critical praise, the writer-director returns with another low-budget thriller that might be peak Shyamalan.
Split stars James McAvoy as Kevin, a young man with at least 23 different personalities. As the trailer above hints, he also might have the ability to alter his body chemistry with his thoughts. (That might not make sense, but this guy supposedly has a 24th personality called "The Beast," so roll with it.)
Also featuring Witch actress Anya Taylor-Joy, Brad William Henke, and some good flowers, Split hits theaters on January 20.
