James McAvoy teams up with M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) for a psychological thriller about a deeply disturbed sufferer of dissociative identity disorder.

Psychiatrist Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley) has already counted 23 discrete personalities in her client Kevin (McAvoy). But there remains another one incubating under the surface, waiting to reveal itself and dominate all the others. After abducting three teenage girls, Kevin's personalities fight for prominence while the terrified girls fight for their survival.

After a prolonged bout in director jail, M. Night Shyamalan may never restore his career to the mainstream respectability once afforded by the success of his earlier work such as The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. With his previous film, the endearingly daft found-footage flick The Visit, and now the gloriously demented Split, he’s managed to rejig our expectations somewhat, comfortably embracing his position as solid craftsman of schlocky, modestly-budgeted genre pictures – nothing more, nothing less.

A welcome return to form from 'The Sixth Sense' director M. Night Shyamalan, whose unhinged new mind-bender is a worthy extension of his early work.

This is a Shyamalan movie through and through. And it's his best in some time, thanks to a magnetic McAvoy.

There's a tiny shiver of something in the final few seconds that doesn't exactly change what we've watched so much as say, "I'm still M. Night Shyamalan, and I'm still crazy!" He's become his own twist ending.

If you thought the "I see dead people" reveal was the most powerful in his arsenal, you ain't seen nothing yet.

"Split" doesn't just revive Shyamalan's career; it resurrects his brand.

The director ties themes together at the end with more finesse than usual, letting a couple of meaningful visuals speak for themselves where he might have thrown in a line or two of explanatory dialogue.

Shyamalan papers over plot-holes with dry black humour and well-judged suspense, and - as always - holds back some surprises.
