The narrative plays it too safe and straightforward, making for a serviceable but generic effort.

San Francisco Chronicle

This is the kind of made-for-cable-level movie where a pedestrian script (by Richard D'Ovidio) with the usual horror cliches is elevated by strong acting, no-nonsense direction and a couple of neat twists.

The performances from this wonderful cast go well beyond the shallow script and illogical story. Slickly produced and coolly shot, Hypnotic is all surface.

What's actually going on here is so simple, yet so insane, that you wish the filmmakers had explored it for maximum screaming-at-the-screen enjoyment.

While the resulting cat-and-mouse dynamic is predictable, particularly if you've ever watched a Lifetime movie, "Hypnotic" takes its cartoonishness to admirable heights.

A dire attempt at a psychological thriller so mired in predictability you often wish for a zombie apocalypse to liven things up...Why is the woman always on the wrong end? Couldn't they have reversed the genders, or made the shrink a woman as well?

Hypnotic is anything but.

It's certainly not the best choice as a release to watch with Halloween right around the corner.

It feels like one of those 70s psychological thrillers... dealing with that weird pop psychology.
