Critic Reviews:

The unsureness of the reality and the back and forth between madness and reaching for a cure, makes the film seem longer than its 96 minutes, but not in a bad way. The audience will become lost in the surreal depiction of mental illness and the very physical and emotional struggle with a dissociative mind.


Hypochondriac is a solid, if not particularly innovative addition to the mental health horror sub-genre, with a queer twist thrown into the mix. It is that queer component that adds something new to the tropes we’ve seen a hundred times before...


There have been a lot of horror films about trauma lately, like Hereditary, Violation, Possum, Midsommar, just to name a few. But Hypochonrdiac really succeeds at showing the difficulty of mental illness. [...] Heimann treats such a delicate storyline with care.
