Verdict on Hypnotica

Hypnotica is a horror thriller following a psychiatrist trying to help a patient with problems he can’t explain. This sees him diving into a risker method to solve the problem which only creates a new danger in their lives.

The movie takes on the difficult plans to help a disturbed patient. It does mean the doctor would have to try different methods that become risky. This ends up taking us down a disturbing path you would never expect to see. While it is slow getting there, the big reveal is something that leaves plenty of shock in what unfolds. The performances help create the shock, as the imposing presence of Adam Johnson intimidates the small Tim Torre during their sessions.

Final Thoughts Hypnotica is a movie with a disturbing final act.
