It’s weird, wicked and well worth the crazy price of a cinema ticket these days. In this disturbing psychological thriller, James McAvoy plays the role of a young man called Kevin who suffers with a severe identity disorder. Despite seeking help from his doctor, trying to control 23 very different personalities isn’t easy and it’s only a matter of time before Kevin falls into a very dark place. After kidnapping three school girls, the countdown begins until the ‘might beast’ arrives. Filled with plot twists and creepy chills, this film is deemed as the creator of the The Village, M Night Shyamalan greatest film yet.
