5.0 out of 5 stars Session 9 and The wonders of Danvers State Hospital, 23 Feb. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Session 9 [DVD] (DVD)
Session 9 was recommended to me by a friend who stated it was pretty close to actually watching a Silent Hill movie (and we all know what happened with the eventual one they released)This film is very clever in many ways.

Firstly I wouldn't state that it is a Horror film, more a fictional Biopic about the breakdown of a man's mind. That could be a contradiction in terms but it does closely follow one man's decline from a Hard working typical 'American' style family man to a terrifying conclusion.

I won't say too much, but the very fact that the majority of this film is filmed through the bright sunshine of the day with it streaming through broken windows, following the laborious efforts of an Asbestos mitigation team really does denote the least suspense filled plotline until we find ourselves in the belly of the beast itself, the Danvers State Hospital, where this film is set and actually filmed.

The place itself really does end up becoming the most watchable character in the film and it does leave you wanting to see more of the Hospital itself, hence the Documentary is absolutely fantastic to watch.

Whilst i've not said too much about the film itself, I conclude simply saying that this is a wonderful memorial to the now demolished Danvers Hospital, so get this film and don't expect to be 'shocked' in every other beat of it, but do expect to find yourself roped into the falling apart of one mind's mind with terible consequences.
