The interesting, true story behind the man that inspired the movie Split.

Jennifer Soper
I work at a mental institution on a unit with DID and PTSD patients. Although this is a movie, DID is real and NOT MPD. I watch these patients struggle everyday who have been abused in cults, sex trafficking, and horrific abuse by family. I watch them try to work “together” with all parts to live a normal life. They don’t want to be this way and often times want to end there own lives, not hurt others. The brain does what it has to do to protect itself, and when ongoing unspeakable abuse and trauma is constant, it will do what it needs to protect itself and the body. Please be mindful of how you leave your responses of snarky and uneducated comments. I encourage you to educate yourself and not be afraid and show your ignorance by making fun of these patients. I pray you never go through what they have been through. I hope no human being ever does....

I believe Kevin's mother abused him as a child. He's father was killed in the train that Mr. Glass put a bomb. Also David Dunn (Bruce Willis) touched Kevin's mom at a football game and saw her abused againt Kevin.
Telios Abraxas
The film is actually about the psychologist. She's the one who triggered Kevin to snap after being her patient for so long. She's the one who would tell him he was extraordinary and special and she also explained to him how some patients with DID will make their body's change with multiple personalities and that's what planted the seed in his head to transform, to evolve. He even tells her this when he reveals that the Beast is real to her. She pushed him to the apex of his psyche, so that he could evolve and transform. She created the Beast. The film is actually an initiation because it's for you too, to change yourself, to evolve, like the phoenix that ignites itself, only to rise from its own ashes to be reborn. This is demonstrated when the psychologist gives her talk via Skype- she is looking straight at the screen and what she says is not for those people in that conference, she's talking to the Self, to the audience. That talk is for you. It isn't enough to be broken, what matters most is what you do to put yourself together again and how you rise above your adversity.

I haven't seen the movie but I guarantee DID or MPD, as it was once called, is an actual mental illness. Not everything is fake just because you haven't seen it.
Dana Plummer
I loved the theme of mental illness being a supernatural power not a dysfunctional set back.
Gracy Jones
I thought the movie was brilliant. The main actor was amazing.

I have met Billy Milligan. He was in my hometown allowed out for several hours a day from the Mental health center in Athens Ohio. I worked in the diner that he came into regularly. He was quiet but nice.
Jake West
I read the book the minds of billy Milligan over 20 years ago...while billy is a multiple, HIS STORY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MOVIE SPLIT. As a matter of fact according to the internet they are making a movie about Billy Milligan with Leonardo DiCaprio.
Anthony Emrick
Kevin was troubled by the death of his Father, not his Mother. His Mother was the one who savagely abused him, thus creating the disassociation disorder.
Jennifer Siddons
Sybil is a movie of multiple personalities also. It is an older movie. Sybil is based on a real person. Wondered why you didn't mention that movie.
Brittany Ereaux
Honestly so sad 😞 I want to help people like Billy. I understand what it’s like to be abused as a child. I hurt for them.
Alfonso Lopez
False. All of Shyamalan’s films are based off fictional stories, none of them are actually based off real life
My Imaginary World Exists!
It's really sad that Billy Milligan hasn't became an actor. He could've got 24 oscars!
Antonio Torres
spilt personality disorder? wife.. once month.. hands down..
Sheena A. Living Hope
Although arguably based on the Billy Milligan case the problem with the movie Split, and other entertainment media like it ,is that it does villainize and mythicize Dissociative Identity Disorder and the perception society has of those actually living with it. For example there is no pattern ,data at all that suggests people with D.I.D. are anymore likely to be dangerous than those without that diagnosis.  And alters cannot exhibit behaviors that the human body and mind are incapable of. That is the imagination of Hollywood and therein lies the problem of separating fact from fiction when watching these films. One must educate oneself because mental illness is not pretend.
Kaydee DeVance
Your information isn't correct his mother abused him and his father died in Unbreakable on the train 177.

The Sequel is on it's way A Spin off from the movie Split and Unbreakable! I can't wait ⏳

My daughter actually has multiple personalities she's only 8 and so far we know of 4 not including herself

There is the story of Sybil from long before any of this as well. That gave me nightmares as a kid.😬
Their are millions of people with multiple personalities, you yourself may have a few and not know it, only being aware of your own mind.
Nova Lovely
Multiple personalities are other entities taking over the body. Our vessels can host many things.
Ebony Oliver
I believe multiple personality disorders are mostly due to unresolved issues, pain, etc. from childhood on. #myhumbleopinion
Christine Perkins
No it's not all fiction. There have been well documented cases about these split personalities. For instance, there was the 3 Faces Of Eve and Cibyl who was not violent but had like 22 or more personalities. These are true accounts and of course they are the names of 2 movies. I suggest before watching the movie you do your research on these 2 cases. Poor Cibyl was horribly abused by her mother.
Mental illnesses are manifested by and within the mind. The mind can be influenced by external stimuli but not physical agents (as are real diseases). They are not a disease. Diseases can be and are routinely cured. No one anywhere has ever cured mental illness. Not once, not ever. Psychologists and psychiatrists are simply quacks that postulate and theorize but have never actually cured a single patient. They just bury the symptoms under drugs.
Benjamín VarCas
Your videos are so good man, I hope this year you can have 1m
It's very real! People's minds break because they can't handle what's happening. Multiple personalities would never happen in a society without poverty, without homelessness, without abuse, without alcohol. All of these factors break people causing unnecessary deaths, pain, and psychological disorders.
Well, as far as multiple personality disorder is concerned, I'm in two minds about it.

I don't know if anyone would agree, but I think majority of world suffering from DID. Some cases are more extreme do to traumatic experiences. And before anyone bites my head off, let me ask. How many of you find yourself acting one way with one group vs how you act with another group? And it maybe barely noticeable to you, but think about it . But we all do it. DID is I think a human condition that we all suffering from. Some are worse off do to traumatic experiences. Just my opinion about the subject.
Mary Jean Dalogdog
He is possessed. Many people dont believe on this and they tend to take temporary relief through medicines but not really taking out the root of it. He needs deliverance. Check out Emmanuel TV.
Toby Mercer
As a person who suffers from this disorder can you not call it a “disease”, calling it that makes it sound like something it’s not and is actually really offensive

This movie is a great example of trauma based mind control that the CIA use to create mk slaves. This is still happening to innocent people all around the world. I'm a survivor of beta and omega programming. In order for them to control your mind, they torture you as a child so you can split. Then they program each alter by more torture, drugs and electric shock.
Hlengiwe Zungu
Poor boy. Abuse is not a game. He had to keep putting himself in these characters like a movie star. Well at least they can let go of those characters but he can't😢
Anthony Emrick
Actually it is an accurate depiction of an aspect of the disorder. The fact that the different personas are usually partitioned from one another. That is actually Correct. What generally occurs is when the person is young, something occurred that created so much trauma... so much stress and strain, that the Individuals mind literally fragments and begins to create partitions in order to protect the person's core emotional self from having to both remember and as such endure the continuous memories of whatever took place. One could say that it's a very complex form of psychological self defense. However, once the mind does finally begin to fracture, it doesn't take much to keep pushing it to segment even further, thus creating a new Individual persona for each new partition. That is, of course, assuming that the person in question is the Victim of some form of Ritual Satanic Abuse or perhaps the Victim of perverse and unethical psychological experiments... Not unlike the ones that were performed on an unknown number of AMERICAN CITIZENS, TOTALLY UNBEKNOWNST AND WITHOUT INFORMED CONSENT - BY OUR VERY OWN CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY, As formally uncovered by the Congressional intelligence oversight Committee led by then Honorable Senator Frank Church. A Congressional Committee that was held in the 1970's an uncovered an incredible and infamous list of Programs, Operations, and also gadgets and weapons developed by the CIA for use in covert assassinations, that were Absolutely Frightening, unethical, Illegal, dishonorable, dastardly and even disgraceful. And to know that what WAS uncovered about the CIA's funding and sponsorship of Mind Control programs that were all rooted in PSYCHOLOGICAL TORTURE in order to either mind wipe tye Victim completely and attempt to rebuild them (like a Jason Borne type), create sleeper assassins (Manchurian Candidate types), or essentially what were human slaves who had their mind's fractured and reprogrammed with Different personas in which each one was carefully programmed for a specific purpose (some being for sex slaves for diplomats and aristocrats, some being for the purposes of Intelligence Currier, some as sleeper assassins... Each being accessable through a series of code words spoken in a certain sequence). These were all abominations, and more than that... they were human beings, AMERICANS that ere horrifically tortured, many ending up in permanent vegetative states, many ending up dead as a result of the torture. And others still who went Stark raving mad, and of course those who were used as pawns by the Deep State to carry out assassinations. Take, for instance, James Earl Ray and Surhan Surhan (sp?), both of whom were implicated in famous assassinations of important people, who were perceived by certain elements to be threats to the establishment, and neither of which can remember anything about the events themself. Not what brought them there, nor the moments up to, during, and after the events. And both of them have said that they never had any obsession or even much of a thought about the men they are accused of having killed. Not to mention the fact that there are still many unanswered questions, many gaps in the official accounts still left unfilled, many strange coincidences that raise too many flags. All of which point to serious inconsistencies that lead one to believe that the real killers were never caught and that these guys are Patsy's or something much more unsettling.

I found Casey's story really intriguing
I enjoyed watching this movie. The fact that it’s a real condition makes for a cool twist and makes the movie even better because it makes you think that it could actually happen.

I’m curious how the brain handle so many splits in personalities? Granted I realize folks with such conditions. Often aren’t trying to harm people. Rather their more likely to experience harm from others.

i love split, and i really love that they are making a universe around the films now i dont know anyone who has what kevin has, i dont really care about people in real life anymore

I've met a few people with Schizophrenia in my time and a very common misconception is that they all 'Change' from one person to another ? As is the case in the Movie Split... NOT SO. I believe that form of Schizophrenia is Very Rare. Mostly (or rather far more common), in Schizophrenia, it is the 'Voices' schizophrenics hear that are the 'Other' personalities... But I have met one woman who did / does have that Multi-Personality schizophrenia... Very disturbing.

I have multiple personalities

Wendell crumbs not billy for goddess sake. Leave M alone. He made wonderful trilogy, he is a genius. And it's Disassociative personality disorder. Not multiple personality disorder. Idiots.

Esperanza Lopez
I thought the movie was brilliant and mesmerizing. I suffer from multiple mental disorders. And have for decades. There's nothing wrong with movies that start conversations about mental illness. I felt it was a rather thoughtful and thought provoking depiction. And of course it should go without saying...IT'S JUST A MOVIE. Can't wait to see Glass.

I wish I understood DID more my ex gf suffered from it and I could have helped her way more #mentalhealthawareness

They said Roseann from the show Roseanne has like 14 or 16 a lot I don’t really know how many but they said she does have a split personality throughout the years

I own the movie and I love the movie it's just a movie people don't need to read too much into it they just need to enjoy it and if they don't like it don't watch it

1 John 4:1  4 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. The beast is the evil one, the devil. Beware and be vigilant of false prophets and indoctrination with movies. This is the devil's playground.
moop noom
i find it odd that the personalities are often so well varied... it's never a bunch of simple, average personalities say like the folks ya work with or my family or friends. The personalities are hitting all the stereotypes on the nose. One of each character you'd find in fiction and entertainment. Obviously for the sake of a film i can understand this but also with this fella and others I've seen. Mind you, when one is in this state, why not have cool personalities that seem fantastic or above average. The human brain can hold 7 Smithsonian libraries of many life times of one person or one lifetime of many persons is that?
Tina Klinger
YES, DID is real. I used to work with a woman who had multiples. The multiples I've seen and heard were completely different in age. One was a little girl. We worked 3rd shift stocking shelves and one night about 2 am I heard a little girls voice. Kept checking and there was never a child around. Another time we were in the break room and she was smoking!!! I NEVER saw her smoke before. Everyone was surprised to see her smoking and was questioning her about it. She just shrugged her shoulders, but I knew what was happening because I am thoroughly fascinated by MPD.
Sara Lopes
I do now a girl that was sexual abused by har uncle. She whent true a Berry hard time to recover and she had 4 diferent personalities. She had one in comon. That was of man that was extrimely agressive. She almost killed 3 people.

If it true, this disorder is exist, i believe, that is multiple Jin work on the human who suffer this, its the only explanation for me.
Gwen C Toliver
SRA... satanic ritual abuse.
mpd doesnt exist
Mental disorders ARE NOT a disease. You can't catch it from being being sick from a cold. Quit trying to paint something that is serious and real as if it were something that can be cured with antibiotics. MPD is a real and scary thing that needs to be treated with respect.
It's a disorder, not a disease god dammit.
Entity The Imagination
Nice explaination.
Sun Shine
I can't wait for Glass to come out I loved both of Split and Unbreakable they were both amazing and I think that James McAvoy did an amazing job in split he's an amazing actor
I am not sure if anyone has this disorder, but I want to know how you can tell if someone has this disorder. Does quick mood changes count as it? I can get mad easily and calm down quickly. I can explain how or why. If anyone has any ideas please let me know.
Lin Bat
As one who has been diagnosed DID I found this movie compelling and at times similar to my own experiences. M Night Shamylan is pure genius and the acting here was superb! It is horrifying and terribly confusing to go through a life where people tell you you've done so many things you don't remember doing and you lose time. People, Drs., even my own children tell me things I've done and have to fill in the blanks for me. It's embarrassing to have someone walk up to me and start talking like I know them and I don't have a clue who they are. It's not a life anyone would choose.
You say people thought the director created a “psychopath” in Kevin, but that’s not really a correct description. Do you actually know the true definition and behaviours of psychopaths? It is nothing like DID. Psychopaths are very good at appearing NORMAL, and they act very charming and friendly and kind to people (this is their mask). They can keep this public act up their whole lives. Behind closed doors they abuse their victims. But their true nature is hidden very well and they are usually upstanding members of the community and well respected and liked (I’m talking about the high functioning ones, not the low functioning ones who act violently very obviously then get sent to prison). But Kevin does not hide his nature from the girls at all, he switches personality to personality. It is clear to others who encounter him that he is abnormal. So he is not behaving anything like an actual psychopath. The term psychopath is generally very misunderstood in society. People think psychopaths are obviously crazy murderers out to harm others - but in reality, though they do harm others, it is so hidden that most people cannot spot psychopaths. I know this from experience. Someone I trusted for years and seemed to be the most kind, humble, caring, considerate man turned out to be a psychopath. He seemed very normal in everyday life and was liked by everyone around. Only after I got close to him did I discover the truth - he was manipulative, a pathological liar and emotionally abusive. He had low empathy for the hurt of others (but he hid that well by pretending to care and being concerned by others’ troubles). He was sabotaging me behind my back and turning people against me, while pretending to be a trusted friend to my face, and maintaining his act as a good samaritan to everyone else. THAT is how a real psychopath acts. Very calm and calculated master manipulators who are interested only in exploiting people for their own gain

As someone who has a form of DID, I must emphasize that not all those with the disorder are psychopathic criminals wanting to hurt others. The movie is awesome, I love McAvoy, but I don't like that this is yet another depiction of someone with DID who is portrayed as the Big Bad villain. The majority of those with DID are more of a danger to themselves than anyone else. For once, I'd like to see a real life depiction of a person with DID who isn't a crazed killer, but someone who's just like anyone else...just extremely resilient and highly intelligent and creative. My system is very unique, but none of my parts would ever hurt anyone on the outside, and they are all my protectors. Don't judge everyone with DID as if they were Kevin Crumb from Split. It's just not reality.

From the mk-ultra documents that have been released. Yes people can develop M.P.D. a lot of survivors of satanic abuse develop M.P.D, I would say the possibility of running into somebody who has M.P.D with that person never being satanically ritualistic abused would be slim but possible. This has been going on for millennia, for sure the Egyptians we're actively and intentionally performing rituals to do it his to people. Look in the MK-ULTRA documents for yourself, and investigate the connections.

I understand how people with DID may really dislike Split. But in all honesty, I'm a horror movie fan and I enjoyed watching the movie. I knew "the beast" couldn't be possible and that was a fictional part of the movie, but I was very interested to learn about people with DID months after I saw the movie in theaters. I do agree that it is kind of like a super power having multiple personalities. There are people who are gluten intolerant but have alters who arent. Or they have diabetes but have alters who aren't. It's really incredible and fascinating!
Patricia Faircloth
The movie was very real to me I've got 3 personalities and it's very scary not knowing but there are cases everywhere with various people who in different categories and lifestyles suffer from this. I don't think he was being down hearted making fun of disease, he was telling a story and as scary as the movie was, imagine how scary it is to live like that
Leilani- sheree
I think it's real, this really happens

My niece was abused and suffered some horrific trauma growing up. She created a few new personalities to help cope. One could not read nor write, the other was more like a baby. My niece would only appear sometimes. It was so hard to believe but once my family reunited with her it was so real and mind blowing.
interesting facts about billy. his other personalities acknowledged that his core personality billy was there but sleeping. he couldnt be woken up because he would harm himself. also his female dislexic persona was the one carrying out the molestations. "she" claimed she did it out of loneliness.

There is no know medication for this disprder and this isn't a disease. The medical community does not know what causes DID neither do they know the cure. These people are demon possessed.

Not the first film about this condition search when rabbit howls it’s horrific and based on a true story
There is a book titled The Minds of Bill Milligan, tragic story. Read it several years ago. We wonder what's wrong with some of the people of this world. The cruelty that this young man experienced was horrifying. I'm still amazed at the evil of some people.
Three to four personalities mental illness.. Cool....but if identities claiming to be a different age and race or if somebody changed body mass I'll go with demonic be safe ...ohh..talking in different languages or backwards makes the demon list too
Other examples in fiction: Psycho and Bates Motel. I didn't understand the nationalities part... I mean, he maybe changed his personality, his way of moving and speaking... But... His nationality?? Those are documents XD.
