I was already paranoid in and around hypnosis but seeing this movie isn't going to help.
This movie did a bang-up job giving me that overwhelming sense of dread that you can't escape from. It's essential to the better creepy movies cuz you don't want to feel too at ease. I thought the performances were very good and although much of it is predictable, i still felt surprise at the direction much of it went.
People keep talking about the social commentary of this film but I didn't find that aspect as deep as people make it out to be. The movie is scary as balls and a fun ride, but I don't think it's quite as profound as that. Still, it doesn't have to be for this genre. Is Bradley Whitford only doing smart-scary now?
It's a rare thing to have such a great movie for the horror/scary genre. Need more of these.
Heart rating: 5 stars (absolutely, mine sunk down deep)
Brain rating: 4 stars (a little too predictable maybe)
