What is the movie about?

'Hypnotic' sees Jenn (Siegel), an unemployed woman suffering from general anxiety. Following her friend's advice, she visits a therapist named Dr. Meade (Jason O'Mara), who specializes in hypnotherapy. After a few visits that attempt to "unlock" her mind, she begins experiencing disturbing and deadly visions that make her think she's losing control of her sanity.

The official synopsis reads: "Feeling stuck both personally and professionally, Jenn (Kate Siegel), a young woman reeling from a series of traumatic events, enlists a renowned hypnotherapist, Dr. Meade (Jason O'Mara), to help on her road to recovery. After a handful of intense sessions, terrifying events, and mysterious blackouts, Jenn soon finds herself caught in a dangerous mind game.
