Few things are more sure-fire creepy than huge abandoned buildings, and Session 9 has one of the eeriest buildings you've ever seen. A hazardous-materials-cleanup company has been hired to eliminate asbestos tiles and other toxic material from a gigantic mental hospital that had been shut down in the 1980s. But as one member of the team starts to nose into old files in the office, he uncovers a series of tape recordings of psychiatric sessions--nine of them--related to a notorious sexual abuse case. Soon, toxic materials and dark spirits start to merge. Like The Blair Witch Project (and most horror movies, really), Session 9 is longer on atmosphere and dream logic than story--but the atmosphere is effectively unsettling. A strong cast (including Peter Mullan, David Caruso, and Brendan Sexton III) do an effective job of slowly cracking under stress and evil influences. --Bret Fetzer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I don't actually like horror flicks, and this movie is one of the main reasons why. Not because it sucked, but because it did its job too well (on me at least). It's creepy and smart and suspenseful and creepy and gripping and creepy... I saw this thing purely by accident a few years ago on a sunny summer afternoon and I STILL have nightmares about the ending (the movie's not called Session 9 for nothing). Minimal violence/gore, true, but you know the old adage abut how "less is more"? Brrrr, I've got the heebie-jeebies all over again just thinking about it. To conclude, I may have been permanently traumatized by Session 9, and if that doesn't deserve a 5-star rating I don't know what does.

This is a very disturbing film! Creepy special effects, excellent (yet creepy) cinematography, and a VERY creepy soundtrack that will send chills down your spine. The acting (for the most part) was nothing to brag about, but the performance on behalf of Peter Mullan was excellent.
This is not a movie for people who are without a brain; you will have to put your thinking caps on for this one. I strongly recommend watching it more then once because there are things that you will probably miss the first time around. This truly is a psychological thriller, and one that will most likely freak you out! I found the amount of profanity in this movie to be both unnecessary and annoying, but other then's pretty clean. If you like intelligently made horror movies (they are rare today) you will love this film.

I can forgive the guy who said that the Session 9 tape after which the film is title, was 'Ultimately, a Macguffin', because I assume that he thinks a Macguffin is something served at McDonalds with egg and bacon.. Quite obviously to anyone who experiences the film with their eyes and ears, the 'session 9' tape is the complete embodiment of the psycholoogical theme of the film. It's the recorded session where the personification of the patient's potential repressed capability for evil finally manifests - the trait of humanity that the voice describes as living in 'the weak and the wounded'. So there's a huge and blindingly obvious parallel between the patient's final session, and Gordon - even to the extent that the final tape plays out as we begin to uncover the truth about him. And as for 'confusing sub-plots', what sub plots? Is someone really complaining about a subplot about a vagrant woman that was REMOVED in it's entirity from the film by the director because he felt it didn't work? Erm... what? Incidently, these scenes are available as extras along side a nice documentary and a superb commentary from some great filmmakers. The film expertly straddles the line between psychological and supernatural horror intermingling the two with creepy and disturbing expertese. It's superb, a great story that is brilliantly performed, and directed. If you're not afraid to engage your brain, give it a watch!

I had never heard of "Session 9" until a couple of weeks ago. Ever since I saw it, I can talk of nothing else. It's absolutely AMAZING, and it's sad that it's so overlooked. "Session 9" is like no other horror movie I've ever seen and leaves the viewer absolutely dumbfounded. If nothing else, it'll make you more afraid of the dark than you ever were before.
It's nearly impossible to summarize the plot without giving away the entire film, but I'll do my best. The setup: a crew is preparing an abandoned mental hospital for construction. Gordon, the leader of the crew, has held his position for a long time, and thinks that the stress is beginning to get to him. Then the strange things start to happen. One member of the crew discovers a room filled with psycologist's session tapes of the various patients. He starts listening to the sessions of a schizophrenic girl named Mary, who has three personalities: The Princess, Billy, and the eluisve Simon, who we don't hear from until the very end of the film. Another crew member goes missing, and Phil, Gordon's second in command, starts becoming wary of his superior's behavior, and maybe even gets a little power-hungry when he realizes that Gordon might not last too much longer. After a strange discovery, things begin to spiral out of control, leading to a completely unexpected ending.
"Session 9" is one of the most unpredictable horror films I've ever seen, which is a rarity in today's films like "Gothika" and "The Ring" which, while artsy, most people had figured out a quarter of the way into the movie. Everything is shot very cleanly and artfully and never sacrifices explanations for aesthetics.

i thought this would be a supernatural movie. its not. its about these several guys who go to an abandoned mental asylum to clean it from its old, old...stuff. 2 of the cleaners in particualr are alittle off from the begining. one of them keeps having flashbacks and suffers a hidden mental breakdown, while the rest endure odd happenings inside the creepy asylum. throughout the entire movie it somehow keeps you interested. i guess because its so confusing and you just want to figure out what the hells going on! theres very few scary parts, which makes those few parts even more impactful. at the end, the film reveals, somewhat, what all the twists in the movie were about and what exactly was going on with the characters. they all go alittle crazy by the end, yet one in particular just loses it and...well, youll see. the first time i watched it, and so far the only time i watched it, i hated the movie because it gave all of this suspense which lead up to a completely confusing dud ending. but then, after i thought about it for hours, i figured it out...partially. i do believe they shouldve left the alternate subplot in there about the homeless lady. yes, it would have made it even more confusing, but still, it was a better ending. and by the way, for those of you who didnt understand what was going on with the alternate footage---turn the commentary on! my suggestions is dont buy it at first. rent it. then, dont judge it at first. think about it till your head falls off. but heres a hint: the only reason its so complicated, is because its so simple. oh, and i forgot to mention one of the best addons in the movie---the very believable mary hobbes. shes the woman in the session tapes that has multiple personalities. at the end we finally get to hear simon speak as he infests our imagination with lines that tie the movies plots all together...kind of.
