What I love about this fan edit is it helped me appreciate a story that I already appreciated. I love the M. Night trilogy and the surprise at the end of Split that it actually was a trilogy. This surprise connection is not a surprise in this fan edit. Framing techniques are used by Wraith to tell a narrative through more of a flashback structure. We know all three stories are connected at the beginning and this brings about a feeling of tense inevitability. I was concerned that the tonal differences of the three movies would be jarring when put side by side; however, the tone shifts only added to the story. As much as I love the slow burn of Unbreakable having it juxtaposed with the more intense Split added to the intensity and also broke up some of the formulaic elements of Glass. Wraith took a well-crafted trilogy and told his own well-crafted single film.
