Kate Siegel has made a name for herself in horror and thrillers, and she’s back with a suspenseful new trailer for Hypnotic.
Siegel plays Jen, a woman whose life feels at a crossroads. To relieve her depression and anxiety, a firend suggest she visit her therapist. As soon as they start a series of intense therapy sessions that include hypnosis, everything changes for the worse. Via Slashfilm:
Siegel has been ruling the horror genre for quite some time now, but “Hypnotic” still marks a change from her recent filmography. She’s spent the past few years collaborating with Mike Flanagan, the writer-director behind Netflix hits like “The Haunting of Hill House,” its sister-show “The Haunting of Bly Manor,” and the more recent “Midnight Mass.”
The pair, also a married couple, co-wrote the 2016 Blumhouse slasher “Hush,” which Siegel starred in before going on to appear in Flanagan’s “Ouija: Origin of Evil” and his Stephen King adaptation “Gerald’s Game.” Continuing down the path of horror, Siegel is giving us another terrified but clever protagonist to root for. In “Hypnotic,” she teams up with Suzanne Coote and Matt Angel. The team previously wrote and directed the Netflix 2018 horror, “The Open House,” and theirr third feature, “Sick,” is soon to follow, having just entered production.
The Haunting of Hill House is a great way to pass the time till the new film drops:
Hypnotic premieres on Netflix just in time for Halloween, on October 27.
