What an unexpectedly good thriller
16 February 2015 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a psychiatrist who uses hypnosis to treat a very difficult case, which is a woman who believes that she can see ghosts.

I heard good things about it, but I really did not expect "The Great Hypnotist"to be this good. To begin with, the topic of hypnosis is quite mysterious, which is a good setting for a thriller. The plot is engaging and suspenseful, especially the very unexpected twist happening in the middle. This twist doesn't feel contrived. Even though in retrospect there are telltale signs of the trust in the being, I just did not expect the twist coming. I'm very impressed by the plot. I very much enjoyed watching "The Great Hypnotist", as it's an unexpectedly good thriller.
