Product Description

Gordon Fleming, proprietario della Hazmat Elimination Co. con problemi finanziari seguiti alla nascita di un figlio, pur di vincere l'appalto accetta di smantellare in una sola settimana l'amianto dal Danvers State Mental Hospital, un manicomio chiuso da 15 anni e prossimo alla ristrutturazione. La squadra è composta da suo nipote Jeff, da Mike avvocato mancato, da Phil il caposquadra, e dall'ansioso Hank. Indossate le tute di protezione, i cinque operai cominciano a girare per i reparti fatiscenti del vecchio ospedale. Mike trova nei sotterranei alcuni nastri numerati (session 1,2...) che riproducono sedute psichiatriche relative a una bambina affetta da personalità multipla, e li ascolta nelle pause-pranzo di nascosto dai colleghi. I rapporti tra gli operai degenerano progressivamente, sia per lo stress di dover terminare il lavoro in tempi brevissimi, sia per avvenimenti inspiegabili che accadono all'interno dell'edificio. Uno ad uno gli uomini vengono uccisi, alla fine rimane il solo Gordon, l'assassino, forse posseduto dall'entità demoniaca del nastro n.9 o forse impazzito dopo aver ucciso la moglie e il figlioletto.

This is how a horror movie should be done. There are no aliens, no men in rubber suits, no cliched celluloid psyopaths and definitely no bad CGI monsters. What we get instead is almost unbearable, terrifying suspense, a film that truly makes the most of it's creepy location and will have you looking over your shoulder by the time the credits role. For maximum fear this should be watched alone, late at night with the lights down low.
David Caruso and Peter Mullan head an impressive cast, (Mullan particularly shines) who have the unenviable task of clearing out an abandoned asylum. That should be enough to put the creeps up anybody, but it soon becomes clear that the asylums past history may be coming back to haunt them.
What could easily have become territory for a bad B-movie, instead becomes a tale of terror as the tension mounts and the truth is slowly revealed. The brilliant location is expertly used to instill in you a fear that something rather unpleasant is waiting just around the corner, but it never once resorts to cheap thrills.
It is shocking to think that with all the rubbish that comes from Hollywood every year, an original film like Session 9 doesn't even get a cinema release in the UK.
You do however get the feeling that it will struggle for a convincing ending and indeed it does fall apart a little in the final thirty minutes. That said, this is still a brilliantly understated pyschological chiller, that is part "Blair Witch Project", part "The Shining" and it deserves to find an audience, hopefully it will find it's home on DVD.

This is the first time I have written a review but I just wanted to redress the balance as it seems to have very caused very mixed reactions. Some other reviewers have gone into more depth so I will not repeat everything already said.

I found this film to be chilling and scary in a way that gory, slasher type films are not. It builds nicely to its quite frightening climax, which was bloody but not too over the top. The actors were great in portraying the dread the building was imposing on them. The voice on the tape at the heart of the story was very spooky.

The mental hospital itself was a wonderful setting for this type of film and gave it the most fantastic atmosphere. My son worked in a mental hospital very similar to this in England before it was closed down and said that it always gave him the creeps at any time of day and now I know why. Anyway please give this a try if you like being scared but not sickened.

Whilst lacking depth and never really drawing you in enough, Session 9 oozes atmosphere and is one of the most beautifully shot horror films of recent years. Furthermore, if you buy it for the same reason I bought it - a look around the disused psychiatric hospital that is the real star of the film - you will not be disappointed. In many ways this is the perfect urban explorer's horror film, every nook and corner of the hospital explored, with great use of familiar props like patient's drawings, dusty boxes of documents and restraint chairs. An original plot, great ending and some truly creepy moments add up to make this the best horror film you've never heard of.

I read a review of this film in the USA this time last year and it was actually in the critic's top 10 scary movies! On returning to the UK I was annoyed that the DVD could not be found anywhere but, lo and behold, it was eventually released and on the back of the review, I jumped at the chance to see it.
I can see why it had no cinema release here : No massive stars, no nubile young girls and no overly gory scenes. In fact, the opposite to the usual fare on offer these days. Instead, you have a slow, well acted and beautifully shot piece of cinema that is worth watching for these factors alone. In terms of the story, it is a little confusing, particularly as what you expect to happen, may not actually happen. The good thing is that it leaves you asking questions and demands to be seen again and even again!! 'Horror' fans per se may not love the film but if you love cinema in general and like to be 'moved' be it by horror, suspense or just good acting, then watch this movie!!

The cover of the dvd was what drew me into it initialy, a solitary wheel chair at the end of a poorly lit corridoor (pretty much the signature shot of the film), how eerie. Basicaly Session 9 returns to the formula of ,arguably, the greatest horror films made (The Shining, The Haunting et al) by setting the entire movie in a large deserted location. (a hotel, an old mansion etc.) And this time it's a mental institution that closed down about ten years ago. It's huge and looming, the perfect setting.
The direction is spot on (in my opinion) sound overs and flash backs are utilised perfectly.. although maybe a particular scene is replayed a few too many times.. it is an important one though.
Ten minutes or so into the film and it really does deliver the same sort of psychological tension that the above classics do. You can feel something big coming. And it's not something like the typical scenes that characterise horror in the 80's to present day. It doesnt rely on shock moments, or hack and slash moments, instead it has some truly disturbing scenes that really are impressive. You'd be hard pressed to find any moments as chilling as the parts where we hear the tapes of an interview with a particular ex patient at the hospital. Absolutely terrific. There are other good moments, including the 'running from the dark' bit but I wont go into them. The film pretty much
sticks to the famous saying by Robert Wise (Director of 'the Haunting') "What you dont see is infinetly more frightening than what you do"
Unfortunatly however, this isnt a perfect ten. With such a good setting and build up plot, I felt this film had a lot more potential than what was produced in the end. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but it could have been so much better.
