In case you haven’t heard about it, Split is the latest from M. Night Shyamalan. The creative mind behind The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs hasn’t had a major hit in a while but with the charismatic, talented actor James McAvoy fronting his latest, could this all be about to change?
We sent Ciara King over to sit down with the director and star of Split. Their new movie sees a young man, named Kevin, abduct three girls and hold them in a room. Kevin exhibits 23 alternate personalities, and in order to escape, his captives must convince one of the personalities within him to let them go.
M. Night Shyamalan talked about the scariness of Split, as well as his thinking behind the different names of Kevin’s distinct personalities. He also tells us the reason for there being 23 personalities, and why Kanye West was the music of choice for Kevin’s nine-year old personality. Plus Ciara and he share their experiences with horror classic The Silence of the Lambs.
Meanwhile, Ciara tells James McAvoy of a spooky prediction while he shares whether he found the part a daunting endeavour and reveals his favourite of the personalities.
