In 1983, financially struggling college student Samantha Hughes takes a strange babysitting job that coincides with a full lunar eclipse. She slowly realizes her clients harbor a terrifying secret, putting her life in mortal danger.
An investigation into a government cover-up leads to a network of abandoned train tunnels deep beneath the heart of Sydney. As a journalist and her crew hunt for the story it quickly becomes clear the story is hunting them.
A young woman's quest for revenge against the people who kidnapped and tormented her as a child leads her and a friend, who is also a victim of child abuse, on a terrifying journey into a living hell of depravity.
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.

Not many props were needed for the making of Session 9. Unfortunately though, much of the building had been looted and damaged by local teenagers using it as a place to party and drink, which is where much of the graffiti came from.

Upon the hospital's closure, any official records of which patients stayed at Danvers were moved to other hospitals, to archives and to records management offices throughout Massachusetts. See more »

was "filmic" and artistic).
I also appreciate any horror movie that can generate real tension and
suspense from imagination and suggestion rather than relying on lame and
lazy tricks that populate most horror movies (if something as limp as Urban
Legends can be called a horror movie).
First rate film and I recommend to anyone who appreciates a thinking-man's
