Hypnotic (Netflix streaming):

A young woman seeking self-improvement enlists the help of a renowned hypnotherapist. But after a handful of intense sessions, she discovers unexpected and deadly consequences.

Starring Kate Siegel (who was EXCELLENT in “Hush,” a very recommended movie), who does well here, with what she has to work with. The premise is promising, but the movie devolves into a cable-movie-of-the-week. Not Lifetime/Hallmark bad, but it does end up being a dud. It really could have been so much more, however, I think laziness just took over. The twist at the end was a good ol’ college try, but meh, it couldn’t save the movie.

Related note: in movies like these, sure, the characters don’t make the smartest decisions, the kind where one says, “Ok, that was dumb, but I get it.” There is that, but then there are “are you an effin’ idiot?” decisions. The latter types of decisions are made in this movie.
