Dr. Mason (Tim Torre) stems from a long line of seers and spiritualists - a field that couldn't be more alien to him, and thus he has chosen to become a psychiatrist instead. And he puts so much passion into his work that his wife Cassie (Taylor Foster) starts to feel neglected - and yet he seems to be immune to her pleas to not bring his work home. Mason has become especially obsessed with his latest case, that of Oliver (Adam Johnson), successful construction company owner who's on the verge of losing everything as he has grown more and more unstable of late. Thing is, Mason fails to get into Oliver's mind as he claims he has no memories from before the age of 12 but every now and again surprises Mason with talents he didn't even know he had (like knowing foreign languages or being able to play the flute). Frustrated for not making any progress, Mason tries hypnosis - to at first very astounding results, as Oliver comes up with pretty vivid memories of the 1851 London's World Fair, something he could naturally not have attended in person. At first, Mason thinks Oliver's faking it, but soon Oliver's memories under hypnosis become darker and darker, and thing is, soon Mason has dark visions somehow linked to what Oliver tells him when under. And somehow it seems whatever's wrong with Oliver is somehow linked to Mason's own bloodline ...

 

Hypnotica sure enough isn't a film that tries to explain everything away prematurely - in fact, it leaves the audience in the dark about things just as much as its protagonist throughout. And that's really a good thing, as the uncertainty of what's going on is the key driving force for the film's tension and suspense. But what really makes this work is that the lead gives very grounded performances upon the pretty out-there plot and thus keep things relatable, while a genre-savvy and atmosphere heavy directorial effort makes this a pretty cool piece of horror cinema.
