Directed by Ted Kotcheff
Split Image is a spirit-stirring story revolving around an all-American college athlete, Danny Stetson (Michael O’Keefe, The Great Santini), who is innocently lured into Homeland, a youth-oriented cult, by a compellingly beautiful girl (Karen Allen, Raiders of the Lost Ark). Here he is programmed by the charismatic leader Neil Kirklander (Peter Fonda, Ulee’s Gold) to believe that his new life now has the true meaning that it previously lacked. Anguished by their son’s disappearance, the Stetsons hire a modern-day bounty hunter, Charles Pratt (James Woods, Cop), to abduct Danny and exorcise his brainwashed mind, deprogramming him to return him to his family and friends. A truly intense psychological drama directed by suspense master Ted Kotcheff (Billy Two Hats, North Dallas Forty, First Blood). Featuring Elizabeth Ashley (The Carpetbaggers) and Brian Dennehy (F/X) as Danny’s parents; music by Bill Conti (Rocky).
