Preview: Hysteria (2012)


A handsome doctor discovers a new device that enables women to pleasure themselves, but can't seem to find the pleasure he seeks himself except with the bizarre sister of a colleague's daughter.

  • Poster: C-


I would have expected more from a poster designed for a period drama. This leaves a great deal to be desired and there aren't even any names that will make this a must-see event, so their inclusion seems further perplexing.

  • Trailer: B-


Hugh Dancy and Maggie Gyllenhaal could be fun here, but the film looks quite a bit similar to any number of period-set seriocomedies about situations, events and inventions that some would simply find too risqué.

Oscar Prospects:

It could be an Art Direction or Costume Design nominee, but other than that, I wouldn't expect much from this film.
