Critic Reviews for Hypnotisören (The Hypnotist)

All Critics (3)

Dark and brooding, there's an intriguing mystery buried amongst the clichés and plot holes.

August 26, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It is not long before the recurrent motifs of sedative drugs, deep slumbers, comas and hypnosis have all come to highlight the film's soporific pace, making the viewer just feel sleepier and sleepier.

An inoffensive enough Nordic thriller that nevertheless completely blows its interesting premise.
