Friday the 13th isn't a national holiday... unless you are a full-blown horror fan. For all of our crazed CinemaBlend readers, we have a terrifying gift this upcoming Friday the 13th. We want to send you to M. Night Shyamalan's pending creep-fest, Split, which we've been lucky enough to pre-screen, and I'm telling you, it's going to send chills down your spine.
CinemaBlend and Universal have teamed up for a series of exclusive screenings of M. Night Shyamalan's Split, which will be held this Friday, January 13, in 24 different cities. Why "24" cities? Because James McAvoy, the terrifying antagonist at the center of Shyamalan's new thriller, has 24 distinct personalities, and they are all on display in this white-knuckle film.
How do you win tickets to the movie? Simple. Click the link below, check and see if your city is one of the ones hosting a Friday evening screening, and register. Once you submit your RSVP, you should be able to download the Admit Two, First Come / First Served passes. What are you waiting for?
It is very important that you guys know that even if you have tickets, the theater will be full, and an Admit Two pass DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOU A SEAT. So we encourage you to show up at the theater as early as possible, even if you have a pass, to make sure that you are seated and able to see Split on Friday, January 13 in your city.
Here's the breakdown on Split from our friends at Universal:
Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan returns to the captivating grip of The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs with Split, an original film that delves into the mysterious recesses of one man's fractured, gifted mind. Following last year's breakout hit The Visit, Shyamalan reunites with producer Jason Blum (The Purge and Insidious series, The Gift) for the thriller being hailed as "Shyamalan's most terrifying film to date." Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities---each with unique physical attributes---to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy, The Witch), Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him---as well as everyone around him---as the walls between his compartments shatter apart. For the film The Guardian calls "a masterful blend of Hitchcock and horror," Shyamalan and Blum reassemble their core team from The Visit, the No. 1-grossing horror film of 2015. Their fellow collaborators on Split include producer Marc Bienstock and executive producers Ashwin Rajan and Steven Schneider.
Split will open in theaters on January 20 for the rest of us unable to see it for free on Friday, January 13. We sincerely hope that you live in one of the 24 cities participating in this contest. If you get in, and go to see Split, come back around and tell us what you think of M. Night Shyamalan's latest. Good luck, and enjoy the movie!
