Netflix has released a trailer for new film Hypnotic — we have the details
Just in time for Halloween (October 27 to be precise), Netflix is bringing us a new thriller in the form of the film Hypnotic. Here’s the synopsis:
Feeling stuck both personally and professionally, Jenn (Kate Siegel — The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor), a young woman reeling from a series of traumatic events, enlists a renowned hypnotherapist, Dr. Meade (Jason O’Mara — The Man in the High Castle), to help on her road to recovery. After a handful of intense sessions, terrifying events, and mysterious blackouts, Jenn soon finds herself caught in a dangerous mind game. With the help of Detective Wade Rollins (Dulé Hill — Psych, The West Wing), Jen looks to put the pieces together before it’s too late and there are deadly consequences…
While the idea of a possibly rogue psychotherapist is not a new one, we do feel it’s a modern story, given how much more emphasis (if not enough) is put on mental health in society. There’s a trailer, and while it gives away little of the plot, it does show some of the dangers Kate Siegel’s character faces. You can watch the trailer now and decide for yourself, but our view is it might just be worth a watch in the build up to Halloween.
