Storyline

An asbestos abatement crew wins the bid for an abandoned insane asylum. What should be a straightforward, if rather rushed, job, is complicated by the personal histories of the crew. In particular, Hank is dating Phil's old girlfriend, and Gordon's new baby seems to be unnerving him more than should be expected. Things get more complicated as would-be lawyer Mike plays the tapes from a former patient with multiple personalities, including the mysterious Simon who does not appear until Session 9, and as Hank disappears after finding some old coins.

Trivia

The scene shot outside Danvers when Bill ('Paul Guilfoyle') and Gordon (Peter Mullan) are discussing the bid for the asbestos abatement job, apparently a student pilot was flying circles overhead for about 3 hours. This forced the talent and crew to film the sequence in spurts starting when the plane was furthest away and stopping as it grew nearer. See more »

User Reviews

Some movies are too good for people
2 December 2003 | by (Los Angelis CA) – See all my reviews

I usually don't write reviews on imdb. But I wanted to in this case after reading so many user comments for "Session 9". I think it's a shame that film audiences today have become so lazy. Here is a film that displays artistry, subtlety, and intelligence, relying on the viewer to actually use their brain instead of be bombarded by useless imagery. This truly is a horrifying movie. And so many people have problems with it... people say it's the "worst piece of crap" they've ever seen, but then go and high-five each other while watching "The House on Haunted Hill" or "Jeepers Creepers 2". Movies like this are rare, but making a come-back. The horror is psychological, and the director's handle on atmosphere is intimidating. I found this film to be one of the most disturbing movies I'd seen in a long time. Another great independent horror film, "May", is also suffering from poor reviews by people who don't seem to really understand what they're watching, and react angrily to that. If you are a serious movie fan, who likes to use your brain and be challenged by a film, watch this movie. It's fantastic. If you'd rather just see what the latest computer effects wizards are dreaming up, there a number of other films where things pop out at you and teenagers get killed by something. Stick to those.

Session 9: 10/10
