Audience Reviews for Saimin (Hypnosis )(The Hypnotist)

An intriguing mystery that will genuinly scare you if the silly moments don't deter you first. Stick with this movie; some scenes and facial expressions almost seem out of place and may cause a burst of laughter; at times it appeared to me the lead detective wondered to himself (and the audience) what he was doing in this type of movie. The further the viewer is immersed in the story however, the ultimate hidden secret is revealed and has a chilling effect. This is an uneven movie, but original in concept with an interesting premise even if at times the execution of the story is shaky; the last twenty minutes will frighten you~~~~~
