The Best Movies About Split Personalities

List Criteria: Films with characters that have multiple or dissociative identities

Oftentimes, the most interesting characters are the ones who are split on a dilemma.The internal struggle can be fun to watch because you can never be quite sure which side will win out. But what happens when that internal struggle becomes external and one character becomes two within the same body? Now that’s a character that’s truly struggling. The movies on this list are the best at depicting the war between two or more split personalities and characters who have multiple personalities or dissociative identity disorder. These movies feature characters who have no idea that there’s a darker, sometimes malevolent personality within them, trying to do harm.

Not only do these movies feature split personalities, there is also often a mystery involved, whether it’s about a murder or some other way a second personality is destroying a life. In movies like The Mask and The Nutty Professor, there’s a humorous take on split personalities. Meanwhile movies like The Three Faces of Eve take a more clinical look. However, most of the movies on this list are about darker split personalities.
