Movie Info

Fresh off the international success of such Japanese supernatural flicks as Ring (1996) and Cure (1998) comes this bizarre mystery thriller. The film opens with a trio of inexplicable suicides: a groom strangles himself at his own wedding, an old man hurls himself out a window, and an athlete runs until her legs break. In each case, the victims dying words were "The green monkey is coming." Burned-out cop Sakurai (Ken Utsui), along with psychologist Saga (Goro Inagaki), set out to investigate the deaths. The search leads them to Yuka (Miho Kanno), an enigmatic TV hypnotist. As the bodies continue to pile up, Sakurai and Saga desperately go about looking for the deadly trigger to these otherworldly murders. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

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~~~~~
