Movie Review – Hypnotic

Read Time:1 Minute, 13 Second


I don’t think this should have been a movie. It would have been a better TV show. Come to think of it; it reminds me a lot of an episode from the X-Files—Pusher, season 3, episode 17. If you watch the extra scene in the credits, then it’s not too late. It might still be a TV show.

The story has an interesting, although unoriginal, premise. And the pacing is really tight. This movie moves along rapidly, but it doesn’t feel disjointed. It pretty much follows the story of one character so it’s easy to keep track of things even though it’s impossible to know exactly what’s real and what isn’t. I’m sorry; vagueness is unavoidable since I don’t want to spoil anything major.

Ultimately, I would recommend waiting for this movie to stream. I’m sure it won’t be long in the theaters.

Grade: C-

About The Peetimes: This is a short movie, but I managed to find 3 Peetimes. If you can make it, I recommend the 3rd Peetime. It’s a long montage of scenes you have already seen, just from another point of view.

There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Hypnotic.

    I saw this movie yesterday and I liked it, I was unsure at first but when the twists and turns started I was all on board, I mean it surprised me and I did not see it coming so I always like that, and the ending seems like one thing happened, but if you leave then and do not wait for the end credit scene it changes everything and you see another thing happened. I would say I liked this movie MUCH better then Inception which felt all over the place to me with no real ending, so I would give this movie a B at least for having a interesting take on something new
