... one of the best thrillers I've seen probably since The Ring.

An occasionally engaging but more often gruesome British thriller.

Hypnosis in the movies has always been synonymous with hocus pocus, and the tradition continues in this flashy, mildly tingly British thriller.

A cheaply made piece of 'psychological' occult schlock.
