The thriller centers on a young woman seeking self-improvement, who enlists the help of a renowned hypnotist. But after a handful of intense sessions, she soon discovers unexpected and deadly consequences.
Matt Angel and Suzanne Coote, who previously teamed on the Netflix horror film “The Open House,” will direct “Hypnotic.” Richard D’Ovidio (“The Call,” “The Forger”) is penning the script with Angel and Coote.
It is unclear when “Hypnotic” will be released on the streaming service.
The Netflix project has no relation to another film that is titled “Hypnotic,” which is currently in development with actor Ben Affleck and director Robert Rodriguez. That movie, an action thriller, has been backed by Solstice Studios and Studio 8.
