German/Spanish co-production dealing with strange murders , being well directed by Eugenio Martin
28 July 2013 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Spanish/German ¨Krimi¨ packs killings , thrills , twists and turns . It deals about a couple of Hypnotists called Han (Massimo Serato , ordinary in Peplum) and his fiancée named Magda (Eleanora Rossi Drago who starred various Italian Giallo) . Furthermore, their helper called Eric Stein (the French Jean Sorel) who is secretly in love with Magda . When a boxer delivery boy called Chris (Götz George , still today playing) takes away roses at stage room , there takes place a murder and witnessed by a ventriloquist dummy called Grog that subsequently disappears . Meanwhile , a chief inspector (Werner Peters who performed several roles as Nazi) and police inspector Kaufmann (Heinz Drache, usual in Krimi as detective) are investigating the killing . One theater assistant named Katharina (Margot Trooger who acted in the classic TV Pippi Langstrump) tells the murder was committed by supernatural dark forces . The inspector pursues Chris out onto a ledge where he saves him from block falling before fleeing at night . While Magda suffers a breakdown and is attended by a doctor (Antonio Casas , regular in Spaghetti Western) . Later on , Chris asking for help his sister Karin or Carmen (Mara Cruz) to find the true murderous .

This ¨Krimi¨ contains suspense , thrills, chills , intrigue and plot twists . ¨Hypnosis¨ is compellingly directed with well staged murders plenty of startling visual content , though was submitted to limited censorship in Spain . This one belongs to ¨Krimi¨ , a German genre dealing with suspenseful killings and influenced in Italian Giallo genre , being mostly adapted from Edward Wallace novels . ¨Hypnosis¨ is a customary mystery thriller where the intrigue , tension , suspense appear threatening and lurking in every room , scenarios , corridors and luxurious interior and exterior . As only witness to the crime , is Grog , a ventriloquist puppet , is he a revenger killer ? , this is the main question of the film . The flick packs atmospheric blending of eerie thrills and creepy chills combined with a twisted finale . It's a solid movie , a thrilling story plenty of suspense and intrigue in which the victims seem to be continuous . The staged killings are the high points of the movie , they deliver the goods plenty of screams , shocks and tension . The intriguing moments are compactly made and fast moving ; as the film itself takes place from a strange point of sight , a rare ventriloquist puppet . Large support cast , being a German/Spanish/Italian co-production , here appear several secondary actors such as Spanish : Mara Cruz , Antonio Casas , Jose Maria Caffarel , as Italian : Eleonora Rossi Drago , Massimo Serato and German as Margot Trooger and Werner Peters . Evocative cinematography by Francisco Sempere , being filmed in Germany and Spain ; however , the photography is washed-out and for that reason is necessary an urgent remastering . Atmospheric musical score by Roman Vlad , though other version appears credited Francesco De Masi or Angelo Francesco Lavagnino .

The motion picture produced by the powerful Constantin Films and Spanish Procusa was professionally directed by Eugenio Martin or Gene Martin . Martin is an expert on all kind of genres such as mystery , horror movies (Hypnosis, A candle for the devil , The fourth Mrs Anderson , Horror Express), Musical (The Girl from the Red Cabaret, Leandras) , Spaghetti or Paella Western (Requiem for a gringo , Pancho Villa , The ugly ones , Bad man's river) and adventures (Golden Goddess of Rio Beni, Captain from Toledo, Conqueror of Maracaibo) . Rating : 6,5 . Acceptable and passable Krimi , well worth watching .
