The director follows last year's found footage horror flick "The Visit" with another psychological thriller, "Split." The first trailer introduces James McAvoy as a super creepy, very crazy man named Kevin, who abducts three young women. They are horrified to learn that Kevin has 23 personalities, ranging from a 9-year-old named Hedwig to a motherly woman to a priest. Some of them could help the women escape, but others mean to do them harm.
Since this is Shyamalan, no doubt there is some twist involved. But regardless, McAvoy's performance looks stunning, even from the bits we can see in the trailer. "The Witch" star Anya Taylor-Joy plays the main kidnapped girl. Betty Buckley, Jessica Sula, and Haley Lu Richardson round out the rest of the cast.
"Split" opens in theaters January 20, 2017.
