‘Hypnotic’ Trailer: Kate Siegel Stars In Netflix’s Hypnotherapy Horror

Halloween season is here, and there will be no shortage of horror films for you to choose from. Netflix will be going deep on the genre, as they always do, and one that fans of spooky stuff have to look forward to is Hypnotic, a Portland-set horror starring Kate Siegel who has been integral to the success of her husband, The Haunting of Hill House and Midnight Mass director Mike Flanagan.

Hypnotic isn’t directed by Flanagan, however. Behind the camera are Suzanne Coote and Matt Angel, working from a script by Ricard D’Ovidio. The cast finds Siegel starring alongside Jason O’Mara and Dulé Hill. Coote and Angel previously directed another Netflix horror, 2018’s The Open House.

Here’s the synopsis:  “Feeling stuck both personally and professionally, Jenn (Kate Siegel), a young woman reeling from a series of traumatic events, enlists a renowned hypnotherapist, Dr. Meade (Jason O’Mara), 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), Jen looks to put the pieces together before it’s too late and there are deadly consequences.”

Netflix will debut Hypnotic on October 27th.
