Imagine what it would be like to be abducted by a strange man in broad daylight. You, along with two of your friends, are held captive in a room with no windows. The captor is strange, and seems to be a completely different every time you see him: sometimes wearing glasses and being a neat-freak, sometimes acting like a nine-year-old child.

This is exactly what happens in “Split,” putting an interesting spin on an abduction story.

Three female captors must try to convince one of their abductor’s 23 personalities to let them go before the 24th personality, dubbed “The Beast” comes out to play. Starring James McAvoy, “Split” is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.
