Sleep, sleep, sleep… Deeeeeeeeeeeeep Sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep!
25 January 2007 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

Spain, along with a handful of Asian countries, is like the new Promised Land for horror & thriller cinema, with a couple of multi-talented young directors that are active at the moment, like Jaume Balaguéro, Louis de la Madrid and – of course Alex de la Iglesia. I wish I could add David Carreras' name to this eminent list, but "Hipnos" is so far his only long-feature film achievement and… it really isn't that impressive. Carreras knows how to create a tense atmosphere and he can surely lead his cast members in the right direction, but the script – albeit very ambitious – simply lacks power and genuine thrills. I'm pretty sure that the large share of fans this movie has will just claim that I wasn't able to 'understand' the convoluted structure, but the truth is the events simply aren't fascinating enough. The story opens with the discovery of a young girl covered in blood standing over her mother's dead body. She's in a severe state of shock and doctors as well as police officers decide it's better to send her to Dr. Sanchéz Blanch's proclaimed sanatorium. He uses unique and supposedly advanced hypnosis to bring back the memories of amnesia patients, but the new female doctor Beatriz is about to discover that these techniques are endangers the patients rather then cures them. The first half of the film is rather compelling, since you constantly try to figure out what exactly is the connection between Beatriz and the mysterious institution. The main twist can be guessed rather easily, but Carreras ingeniously adds a lot of detailed sub plots and intrigue. Alas, near the second half of the film the red herrings become less and less effective and can no longer be bothered to predict Beatriz' complex fate. The dialogs suddenly get very tedious and the lack of spectacle doesn't really help, neither. Our young Spanish director was obviously influenced by the works of David Lynch, but still lacks his talent of maintaining the suspense and curiosity from start to finish. From a more technical point of view, "Hipnos" is a rather successful effort, with sublimely cool camera-work and fast-paced editing. Cristina Brondo is a devoted young actress and not exactly prudish, as she please the male viewers with several full frontal nudity scenes. Although no gem or a soon-to-be cult classic, "Hipnos" is worth a look and David Carreras is certainly a name to remember for the future of Spanish cinema.
