The Danvers State Mental Hospital was in fact a real hospital, which used treatments such as the lobotomy, electroshock therapy and drug therapy. In the 21st century most of the building was destroyed and is now for sale as condo property. The film Session 9 was also shot at the hospital building. In the 1970's the outdated treatments were stopped and community-based mental health treatment replaced the former. See more »

I have always enjoyed movies featuring Jean Simmons,and her part in Home Before Dark was excellent.Even though this film was slow paced I liked it very much and would like to add it to my collection. This movie was viewed on television years ago but never again.It was no worse than other films of this type but are shown over and over.
