James McAvoy stars as Kevin, who has 23 distinct personalities. In this clip, we meet Hedwig, who warns The Witch‘s Anya Taylor-Joy that she and her friends are in terrible danger. Something awful is coming and awful things are going to happen to them…
There’s two more clips below, one in which we meet “Patricia”.
Betty Buckley, Jessica Sula and Haley Lu Richardson also star in Split, which Trace Thurman reviewed after its secret screening at this past September’s Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas. He explains that, “Like many of [Shyamalan’s) films, it will no doubt split (sorry) audiences, but McAvoy’s performance alone earns the film a full recommendation. He is a marvel to behold.”
“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 (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), 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 (Anya Taylor-Joy, The Witch), 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.”
Here’s two more clips. In the first, Taylor-Joy uses a walkie talkie to call for help, while the other introduces us to McAvoy’s “Patricia”.
