Kate Siegel married filmmaker Mike Flanagan in 2016. Naturally, as an actress, she ended up collaborating with her spouse on a number of projects. The pair partnered on Oculus, Hush, Ouija: Origin of Evil, Gerald’s Game, The Haunting of Hill House, sequel series The Haunting of Bly Manor, and this month’s Midnight Mass. Though, the star does not entirely lean on her husband to keep her career moving.
In addition to landing a supporting role in HBO’s The Time Traveler’s Wife, Siegel has a horror film coming up. Hypnotic (not to be confused with Robert Rodriguez’s high concept sci-fi thriller with Ben Affleck) is coming to Netflix October 27th.
The plot finds a woman on quest for self-improvement. She enlists a renowned hypnotist for assistance. However, she discovers that her sessions yielded dark, dangerous, and deadly consequences. The first images from Hypnotic are out now.
Matt Angel and Suzanne Coote direct. They are no strangers to Netflix original horror, having helmed 2018’s The Night House with Dylan Minnette. They also co-wrote the screenplay with Richard D’Ovidio. Jason O’Mara and Dulé Hill co-star in what’s set to be a big hit for the streamer, based on nothing but the fact Hypnotic is a horror title debuting four days before Halloween.
