Doctor Sleep (Hypnotic)

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

You won't snap out of it.

Hypnotherapist Doctor Michael Strother (Goran Visnjic) has a dangerous gift; he gets flashes from the inside of his patients' minds.

The thrills start when Strothers, whilst trying to help a police detective stop smoking, sees in her mind an image of a young girl floating below the surface of a stream. He is soon caught up in the detective's pursuit of a ritualistic killer who believes he has found the secret of immortality. Although the girl has managed to escape from the killer, she has been struck mute by her trauma and the only clues are weird visions trapped in her mind. Only Michael can help release her memories, and provide a clue as to the whereabouts of the killer.
