Split (2017) Review

For all one knows, Split is M. Night Shymalan’s response to the recent resurgence in the claustrophobic horror/thriller. Essentially, it is a Don’t Breathe or a 10 Cloverfield Lane, and Shyamalan does his best to distinguish his from them. There’s three young females trapped in a confined area with a madman, and in this case, a man with twenty-three split personalities. So far, its premise is intriguing, but throughout its entirety I couldn’t help but think of last years’ cramped thrillers. Aside from that, Split is undoubtedly a wonderful welcome back for Shyamalan, the tad terrific director we love to love and hate, and if this is his best effort since Unbreakable then possibly it might stay the same.

7.2/10
