M. Night Shyamalan's Comeback Glory? SPLIT (I'm Split on That)

I don't care what people say: I adore M. Night Shyamalan. He's creative. He's a risk-taker. He's game for breaking the mold. That, however, resulted in some major duds coming out of his directorial duties after practically knocking it out of the ballpark with "The Sixth Sense," "Unbreakable" and even "Signs." However....

He Just Might Have a Winner With SPLIT


Simple title. Strong. Visceral even. And groundbreaking. And it's quite the character vehicle for one X-Men in a wheelchair, Mr. James McAvoy (do you see those freakin' forehead veins, man?), literally playing it up in a way that absolutely has to be Oscar worthy. I mean, it has to be! Check out the most recent trailer of SPLIT to get what I mean:


I don't know about you, but that's pretty intense. Something like "Kiss the Girls" meets "Sybil" on freakin' acid. I'm game. And you know Shyamalan sort of earned some of that clever indie favor with the surprise sleeper to a certain extent, "The Visit," reinvigorating the tired idea of the found footage cinematic phenomenon. And then this is what Shyamalan's got coming next?

This Might Be a Return to Form for M. Night Shyamalan


Or it just might be a dud again (like the remake of Rocky Horror). Who knows. We'll see from the critics. We can't exactly judge a book by its cover (or a movie by its trailer). One thing's for sure, though -- Shyamalan nailed the character(s) with the study and performance of McAvoy. And that might make all the difference.

SPLIT will be opening in theaters on January 20, 2017. Let all your other personalities know about it, too. Except for the monster inside you.

Why THE FACULTY Has so Much in Common With Body Snatchers and Pink Floyd

The Faculty took the idea of the invasion and simply localized it. Instead of a planet -- everyone is in danger, no discrimination, nothing to signify what these aliens want or are looking for -- the alien(s) instead focused their effect on just those few teachers. Now there's an interesting high concept.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.

'It Follows': Not Just a Cautionary Tale About Casual Sex

And in all its basic-ness, you'd be shocked to realize that it's not just a linear-type film with one main idea. There are actually a ton of deep meanings behind all of the frames, the shots, the sequences, the scenes. With obviously the underlying principle, the whole point of it: meaningless sex is bad!
