36) Chamber of Horrors (1966) and 38) The Hypnotist (1999)

36) Chamber of Horrors (1966) Dir: Hy Averback Date Released: October 1966 Date Seen: February 4, 2010 Rating: 2.75/5

38) The Hypnotist (1999) Dir: Masayuki Ochiai Date Released (DTV): August 2001 Date Seen: February 4, 2010 Rating: 3.75/5

The former is gimmicky as sin and only really memorable as such but the latter is completely tonally cracked and fittingly so. The Hypnotist is generic in large parts but completely bewildering in others, which makes it all the more schizophrenic. See my blurb about both films for my list on serial killers for Ugo.
