Customer Reviews

It is smart, well acted and fun.
Joseph M. Davis
The film is a bit gruesome and gory at times, but the prime focus almost always remains on the character's interactions and the unraveling of the plot.
Roland E. Zwick
In fact, don't waste your time reading any more of my words about how bad it is.

"Close Your Eyes" is a supernatural thriller based on Madison Smartt Bell's novel "Doctor Sleep". When police detective D.I. Janet Losey (Shirley Henderson) visits a London hypnotist, Dr. Michael Strother (Goran Visnjic), to try to quit smoking, she discovers Dr. Strother's unusual gift: he sees what his patients see while under hypnosis. The London police are at an impasse in a child murder investigation. An apparent serial killer has abducted children, transfused their blood, and tattooed them with an occult symbol. D.I. Losey is charged with protecting a 10-year old girl named Heather who escaped the killer but has not spoken a word since. Losey convinces a reluctant Strother to assist in her investigation by hypnotizing Heather to find out what she remembers about her captor.

"Close Your Eyes" is an enjoyable supernatural thriller that plays for the "Da Vinci Code" audience as well. The murder investigation involves Rosicrucian alchemy, ancient heresies, and the occult, although these things are not explored in depth. Like most thrillers, the story isn't intended to be credible, except on an emotional level. And "Close Your Eyes" does build real suspense. The ending will undoubtedly be too far-fetched for some people. I found that it disappointed on some counts, but packed a nice punch on others. "Close Your Eyes" owes much of its success to its two lead actors, Goran Visnjic and Shirley Henderson. I like these two in every movie I see them, and they don't disappoint here. Both bring a distinct style to their roles, which is very appropriate and appealing in this film. "Close Your Eyes" has some tendency to rehash elements we have seen before, but it is a entertaining thriller nonetheless, and Goran Visnjic is a charismatic presence.

***1/2

Written and directed by Nick Willing, "Close Your Eyes" (aka "Doctor Sleep") is a taut, highly effective British thriller that supplements its crime drama scenario with generous helpings of the supernatural and paranormal.

Michael Strother is a hypnotherapist who has returned to England with his pregnant wife and young daughter after seven years living in the States. Strother is asked by one of his patients, a policewoman named Janet Losey, to bring his professional expertise to bear on one of her most baffling cases, that of a little girl who's managed to escape the clutches of a serial killer but who has been rendered mute by the experience. Strother's involvement leads to complications not only with the highly skeptical police force who are less than thrilled at the prospect of having a hynotherapist working on the case, but with his wife as well who fears that any untoward publicity might reflect badly on her husband's career. Of even more concern is the fact that Strother's involvement might also be making him and his own family a target of the killer.

It would hardly be cricket to reveal much more of the plot here, so I'll just say that "Close Your Eyes" boasts a better-than-average storyline, intriguing characters, an effective back story involving Strother's past in America, and enough genuine suspense to help us ride up and over some of the inconsistencies and absurdities inherent in the material. And if the resolution comes out as a bit flatfooted - well, that doesn't wind up being too much of a handicap since weak endings seem to be just about par for the course when it comes to these types of films anyway.

This psychological horror starring Goran Visnjic and made by BBC Films is basically in the same vein as Stir Of Echoes, but has a completely different story. It concerns a murder case involving an (or maybe a group of) occultists who are kidnapping children for evil purposes.
Goran's character is a hypnotist who is ropped into helping a female police detective question a young, now mute, girl(who was the last captive child but escaped)to find clues to the case;He's also suffering from insomnia (altering his sense of reality) and was involved in the drowning of his former patient back in the States.
To provide a change for themselves, the hypnotist, his pregnant wife and young daughter have moved to London and aren't finding life any more pleasant than back home.
It's a very hypnotic scary little film which i definately recommend.

`Close your Eyes' released in '01 is an expertly crafted occult tale dealing with the possibility of transferring individual consciousness from one body to another, from the old to the young, from generation to generation thus achieving a form of personal immortality.

While conducting a hypnosis session aimed at curing police officer Janet Losey (Shirley Henderson) of her smoking habit, Dr. Michael Strother (Goran Visnjic) experiences a brief but vivid vision of a young blonde girl floating just below the surface of a body of water. He inadvertently mentions the girl to his patient after the session only to discover that she had been thinking of the girl. Her name is Grace (Claire Rushbrook) who just happens to be involved in an ongoing investigation dealing with a series of kidnappings and ritualistic killings of children in the London area.

Against his better judgement Dr. Strother agrees to assist in the case and hypnotizes the little girl who has been mute since her escape from her kidnapper. During the session the Doctor envisions a sinister, bald Crowleyesque individual surrounded by occultic signs and symbols. It appears black magick maybe involved.

Is there an evil sorcerer or black magician loose kidnapping children for some dark, unknown purpose? Does this evil person really exist and if he does will the psychic abilities of Dr. Strother be able to help find him before any more children turn up missing?

`Close Your Eyes' is one of those undiscovered gems that film fans love to stumble upon. The storyline is well thought out, the sets excellent and the film exudes an eerie, unsettling atmosphere absolutely perfect for the subject matter. As for the acting, Goran Visnjic is excellent. He is fast becoming one of my favorite actors.
