18 years after the release of The Sixth Sense, we're still reeling from the shocking twist that BRUCE WILLIS WAS IN THAT FILM THE WHOLE TIME.*

That film's director, the very talented and super-friendly M Night Shyamalan, is now back with his latest release, Split, a frighteningly creepy look into the fractured mind of James McAvoy's psychologically-tormented Kevin; a man with 23 distinct personalities battling inside of him... with the terrifying 24th about to be unleashed.

Having previously sat down with Night and presented him with a delicious Twister ice pop (because he loves twists, obviously), we were delighted to have the opportunity to talk to him again for his new release.

This time around, he was joined by up and coming superstar, Anya Taylor-Joy, who stars as Casey, a young girl taken captive by Kevin and who has to use all of her wits and life experience to try and escape his chilling clutches.

We also caught up with James McAvoy AKA Kevin/Barry/Hedwig/Patricia/The Beast to chat about all manner of various things including the perfect hangover cure, delicious pints of Guinness and head-scratching plot twists.

*SPOILER KLAXON ALERT*

A word of warning though - we do talk about the twists and ending of M Night Shyamalan's film, so you have be careful if you want to avoid any spoilers.
