Session 9 (2001)
Director: Brad Anderson
Main Stars: David Caruso, Stephen Gevedon, Paul Guillfoyle
Storyline: An asbestos cleaning crew work in an old mental hospital and it seems to be haunted
Review (Spoils): An asbestos abatement crew wins the bid for an abandoned insane asylum. This was suppose to be a quick job for the company but the staffs personal issues start to impact the work and even gets more slower for the team once one finds an old audio recording of some of the patient interviews. The one that sticks out the most is the session 9 interview with someone by the name of Simon. Things started to turn bizarre from there on in.
This film hits the nerve of what a true haunting film should be about. If you love ghost films and the ones that come back to memory and give you chill this is one of them. The movie is so well done and the acting is awesome. The sounds and the music stand out and add to the creepiness of the film along with the ongoing of Simon. Danvers Mental Hospital is a place that should be remembered when it comes to places of horror films. Do not expect gore and graphic scenes, except creepiness of the higher level.
Rating: A film like this are rare when it comes to horror. You have a movie that does not lean on naked chicks, blood or shock torture instead this gives you acting, story and god damn chills. And yes don’t; drop dead David Caruso is not bad in this film. All hail Simon!
