The media is roaring about a new movie that is becoming increasingly popular. The film focuses on a man who has Dissociative Identity Disorder (D.I.D.), the scientific name for multiple personalities disorder.

Released at the end of Jan., “Split” is a horror/thriller film about three girls kidnapped by a man with 23 different personalities.

The film begins with the man kidnapping the girls and it becomes apparent that he has severe OCD. He then locks them in a room and comes to check on them a multitude of times, but as different people.

As the movie progresses the girls learn he has multiple different personalities because he acts as a different person almost every time he checks on them.

This movie is filled with tension and horror and will keep viewers hooked until the very end. The movie only has five characters, all of who make consistent appearances and the acting is extremely well done. Brilliant actors are able draw viewers into the movies and make the situations seem real; which is exactly what this movie did.

James McAvoy plays the man with multiple personalities which include the parts of Dennis, Patricia, Hedwig, The Beast, Kevin Wendall Crumb, Berry, Orwell and Jade.

Each character has different accents, health problems and personal interests. McAvoy does a great job playing all of them. I believe this would be a difficult role to play because McAvoy needed to invest himself in all of these characters, rather than just one character at a time.

It is not like many horror films with paranormal activity, it makes viewers feel as though they are living through the action due to it being more realistic.

If you enjoy having your hands sweat and adrenaline pumped as when watching a movie, I strongly suggest for you to go see “Split”.
