Split - Author: Sara

Read with caution- PG 13 movie.  

I recently saw the movie split and it was a thrilling movie with lots of unexpected twists and turns.  Split came out a couple of months ago and it’s one of my favorite movies that I’ve seen in awhile.  Believe it or not Split is based off a true story, although Louis Vivet was the first person to be diagnosed in real life with dissociative identity disorder, in 1863.   Dissociative identity disorder is what the main character has, it’s when you have a multiple personalities.  The main character in the movie is made up of 24 personalities, including one overpowering one, the beast.  All of these personalities are in one human body Kevin.  All of his personalities have names and voices and even their bodies can change.  Together they are called the “Hoard”.  They all trust one psychiatrist Dr. Fletcher.  His good personalities are allowed ‘into the light’ which means they are allowed to be the ones talking.  He and the doctor submerged a certain personality who enjoyed to abduct teenage girls. That personality comes out and does some crazy things to them. Including locking three girls he abducted in a room in his apartment.   The main character is one of the girls Casey and she is ‘pure’, you’ll have to see the movie to know what that means.  I highly recommend you going out to see this movie to have a small scare, and even some laughs.
