M. Night Shyamalan

Briefly: Shyamalan's new thriller has a date for early 2017. Over at The Wrap, they report that Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions have set a release for M. Night Shyamalan's Split on January 20th, 2017. Split is written and directed by Shyamalan, following up his return to low budget films The Visit this year, and is supposedly a "suspense thriller with elements of the supernatural". Other than that, there's no plot info available. The cast includes James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Betty Buckley, Jessica Sula and Haley Lu Richardson. There's already a lot of other weird horror scheduled for January 2017 between the delayed Friday the 13th reboot, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, plus Power Rangers and The Dark Tower movie. I'm curious what exactly Shyamalan's Split means - maybe split personality? McAvoy would be a great pick.

It was a decent movie! Not for the hardcore horror fan ofcourse,but the mainstream moviegoer will find it thrilling....

It's his best movie since Signs. A real treat for people who like his style of filmmaking.

I am glad he is staying small budget, whether he wants to or not.

DAVIDPD on Oct 27, 2015


He does better with small casts and lower budgets. He'll be fine if he stays in his element

Bounty 4 Zuckuss on Oct 28, 2015


Still one of my favorite film makers. I'm super excited he's staying small budget.

Given his track record, I'm not really excited about this....has anyone seen "The Visit"?.....any good?

TheOct8pus on Oct 28, 2015


It wasn't bad.

It was a pleasant surprise actually. Better than Paranormal Whacktivity

Hmm... Haven't seen a good Shyamalamadingdong movie in a while. I'm surprised to see The Visit got decent reviews on RT. What a twist! Might check this out mebbe... or not.

The Visit made 89 mil worldwide on a 5 mil budget. Pretty good I'd say.

Bounty 4 Zuckuss on Oct 28, 2015


The visit was okay, like a tv movie level good or something.

M. Night has become the Ed Wood of our time.

This movie is a very inaccurate and stigmatized representation of Dissociative Identity Disorder. (what multiple personality disorder is actually called. please consider taking a look at and signing our petition asking the actors of this movie to do a PSA.
