Siegel is joined by Jason O’Mara, who plays hypnotherapist Dr. Meade, as well as Dulé Hill, who plays a cop trying to help Siegel’s Jenn out of her terrifying mental trap. As part of the Scary Season, Netflix is rolling out a number of horror-themed movies and shows, which started early with Midnight Mass and will continue throughout the month. Flanagan is currently working on his upcoming Netflix horror series, The midnight club, which is based on the young adult horror novel by Christopher Pike and is due out in 2022.
Siegel has worked extensively in film and television with Netflix and it looks like as long as she appears in Flanagan’s work this trend will continue, as Flanagan made the most of his time with the streamer. The couple are a unique duo in that they both seem to really enjoy the horror genre and continue to make hit after hit, from The Haunting of Hill House To Midnight Mass and beyond. Hypnotic may not involve Flanagan, but Siegel’s presence makes him all the more appealing as she slowly becomes something of a modern, low-key Scream Queen, solidifying as a genre favorite that offers its own blend of spooky gravity in every project it appears. Hypnotic debuts on Netflix on October 27.
