Hypnosis in Fiction

  • November 13, 2017 7:39 AM PST

    A friend gave me a box of Jack Reacher novels. The fourth book "Running Blind" does feature some hypnosis, for those who are into that kind of thing.

    Hahahahha I have not read the Reacher novels but now I will have to put them on my list. Have you seen the movie Get Out? It has an interesting twist on Hypnosis. I actually laughed out loud and it's suppose to be a horror movie. The plot was good but I wish they would have added something to the hypnosis part. All in all it's a great movie for hypnosis lovers!

    Have not seen "Get Out". Will look for it at Redbox.

    I plugged this on the old IR site.

    For the story of a beautiful blonde who literally must be obeyed, check out Callahan's Lady by Spider Robinson.

    Great find! I haven't seen Sharon Tate in anything before now I know why it was all in black and white! Good timing!

    The hypno scene in Stir of Echoes gets me everytime. All up until Bacon starts seeing ghosts and stuff.
