M. Night Shyamalan--on something of a roll after 2015's surprisingly good, stripped-down thriller The Visit--casts James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class) as a psycho killer with 24 distinct personalities. In order to escape his death dungeon, three young women must seek out and exploit the "nice" personalities inside of him, while avoiding the "nasty" ones. Sure, there's a twist to it all, but Shyamalan expertly delivers enough psychological gimmickry and nerve-jangling scares to give this claustrophobic little frightener a solid base before the big--and completely unexpected--reveal. 117 minutes PG-13.
