The city is stricken by a wave of self-mutilations performed by beautiful women who seem to be in a hypnotic trance. The authorities suspect a stage hypnotist with a popular act, but the stakes are raised when the hypnotist sets his sights on the girlfriend of the detective investigating the case. What is the hypnotist's secret, and why does it seem to involve his beautiful assistant? Written by
The film opens up with a women washing her hair over a lit gas stove.Naturally her hair catches fire and she has the hairdo from Hell.This isn't the first case of self mutilation in the big city.Many women have been doing this for weeks.Some have washed their face with sulfuric acid, stuck their faces into fans etc.Is there a connection?
Well if you're the police department with a collective IQ of minus six it is tough to figure out.This force couldn't find a donut shop with a road map.Yes there is a connection. All of the women have been to see a show by Desmond a well known hypnotist.
Desmond hypnotizes woman picked by his va va voom assistant(Allison Hayes). He also whispers something to them just before he breaks their trance.Hmm, wonder what that could be?Then he hypnotizes the crowd and makes them do foolish things which is a giggle.Everybody goes home happy.
Sensing a connection before her idiot police detective boy friend does a young woman allows herself to be put under Desmond's spell.When she goes home that night Desmond's assistant tells her to take a shower in scalding water.Luckily old slow on the uptake shows up before she does.
There is a bit of twist ending to this movie.The disfigurements are done "tastefully"(no gore after all this is 1960).Much is left to the imagination. The acting is par for this genre.
The police are portrayed as such morons you wonder how any crime gets solved in this city.The movie is padded with lingering scenes of the audience under hypnotic commands.Even so it is above average.
You will look deep into the Hypnotic Eye.You will open your wallet/purse and send me your money.Told you I had a better use for hypnotism!
