Girls are held captive. Man who is holding them is white, in good shape, and can crawl on ceilings and walls. Creepy guy. What is the movie name?

  • Hi, welcome to the site. In roughly which year did you watch this and when do you think it might've been made? Also, what did the place the girls were held captive in look like? And were the girls tied up/shackled, or just locked inside a room or building? Oct 6, 2023 at 17:50

    Laurel, good title edit: "Don't know the name of movie" takes the cake of most unhelpful title ever. Well, I suppose "Question" would win.

I think you mean Split (2016), the M. Night Shyamalan movie with James McAvoy.

Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all of the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey, 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.

    Yes that is it. For the life of me I couldn't remember such an easy name. Thank you very much.
