I see teen people… In a twist (damn, we’ve dropped the word already), M. Night Shyamalan delves into a variation on the superhuman themes of Unbreakable, as “Dennis” – one of some two dozen personalities inside the one bonce – kidnaps and imprisons three teenaged girls. Their Dissociative Identity Disorder-stricken host veers between personas ranging from a nine-year-old kid named Hedwig to a grown woman called Patricia. One thing they all have in common is a belief in a mysterious character known only as “The Beast”. Is it real? Is it imaginary? Is “Dennis” (actually Kevin Wendell Crumb, played with gusto by James McAvoy) real, or a figment of one of the girls’ imagination? Is up actually up? Hey, it’s a Shyamalan flick, so we can’t say too much without getting spoilerific, but if you’ve liked his better past works (like The Visit) then you’ll dig Split.
