Despite the intriguing premise, Hypnotic has not attracted a positive reaction from critics.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the feature film has an approval rating of just 25% at the moment. A very negative review came from the Den of Geek.
The site noted: “Netflix original movies are like fast food. They’re cheap and easy to make, they can satisfy you temporarily, they have an acceptable flavor that’s familiar and indisputable, but they’re forgettable or make you totally sorry.”
Despite this negative reception, the psychological suspense worked with some Netflix subscribers. Check out some reactions about Hypnotic on Twitter below.
