Movie Monday: Split

Movie Monday is a weekly feature here on my blog, in which I’m rambling about movies I’ve watched lately.

This week I watched an amazing thriller that scared the shit out of me (excuse my french).



split Split is one of those movies which, after watching it’s trailer, you can’t ignore.
You think about it all the time and simply can’t wait to watch it.
At least that is how it was in my case. I was so obsessed with Split, even before I watched it, that I even had a nightmare in which that Denis guy abducted me. I don’t think I have to stress out how creepy it was.
If you dare, you can see the trailer here.

The movie follows the story of a schizophrenic guy with 23 different personalities, living in one body.
He abducted 3 girls with only one purpose: to give them to “the beast”.

I watched this movie with 4 friends, and I was the one who liked it the best.
My friends said it was really good, but to me, it was amazing.

James McAvoy is such a good actor. One of the best ones out there. The way he potrayed those different pesonalities is beyond me. He managed to transform his face in a way that we could guess just from his expressions who was in the light at the moment (read, who is in charge of the body).

The story itself was creepy enough, but the subplot is what’s even more scary (Casey’s story).

I knew everyone talks about the end even before I’ve seen the movie (but I managed to avoid the discussion so I wouldn’t spoil myself).
However, I have to admit that, once I saw it, I didn’t understand it (famous actor cameo). Thanks to the online community, now I know what was so special about the ending and, even though I don’t remember I watched the movie Split was linked to, I still appreciate how the director connected two movies.

If you’re not scared too easily, please go watch this movie. It was so good, it’s no surprise everyone talks about it at the moment.



Quick note: After posting my movie review, I was told (and researched it afterwards) that DID is NOT schizophrenia.
I didn’t want to offend anyone and thanks to the community, I now know so much more about DID.
I also found out how people with DID are offended with this movie, because it portraited them in a wrong way, as violent persons.

I want to state that Split is piece of fiction, and most people do know how to separate fiction from reality, but there will always be people who take everything they see as facts.
I feel sorry for people with DID to feel that way, but I also, once again, want to stress out that this movie is piece of fiction and I take it as it is.

  1. I haven’t heard of this film, but it sounds really creepy and scary. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I’m going to see Trainspotting T2 this week have you or are you going to see that? Is it showing in your country?

    1. I read an article about it so I know it will come to our theaters, I’m just not sure when (maybe it will start showing from Thursday on), but I think it won’t be showing in the theater that’s closest to my town, because they only show 2-3 movies per week, so they usually show only most popular ones. This will they will show 50 Shades Darker and one Croatian movie.
      Have a lovely time in cinema, I really like Trainspotting, so I hope the sequel will also be good. 🙂

  3. I haven’t heard of that one, but I like the sound of it! I’ll have to check it out. I just watched a movie called Runner Runner last night, with Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck and it was really good! About poker/gambling/greed, and it was action packed!
