I think it's C, but I'm not sure.

Nope... Haven't watched that movie yet. I'll get my hands on it. Anyways, I'm planning to get a few things to watch for this coming months.

As long as it's not a horror movie... coz I don't watch horror films...

The correct answer is C.

Electroconvulsive therapy, also known as electroshock therapy or ECT, is a controversial type of therapy that entails induction of a seizure in a patient by passing electricity through the brain. The mechanism of action of ECT (specifically how it produces improvements in mental state) is not yet known. ECT is used to treat severe depression, particularly if complicated by psychosis and severe depression that is refractory to pharmacotherapy.
