Session 9 (2001)
Under average flick forcing you to over-analyze it
I'm not sure how I should put this, but bottom line this movie is far from being as good as people say it is. Nothing will make you jump, which isn't a bad thing if you aren't looking for that, but nothing makes you nervous as well. Sure, you wonder what will happen next, but more because of boredom than anything else.
I was in the mood for something great, and I could forgive it for not being scary/creepy at all if it delivered plot-wise. I was promised some deep plot that would make me want to read more about it, and I actually did search for explanations since the movie gave none. It FORCES you to fill up the plot holes yourself instead of making you interested and feeling engaged in it. Obviously I won't spoil anything, but basically if you're not into having multiple theories (none explaining everything), the movie won't give you anything satisfying before the last two seconds.
The movie tries to be surprising, throwing things here and there without making sure it makes sense in the end. It's simply not a movie where once you "get it" it gets better, it's still messy no matter how you look at it.
It just looks amateurish, while pretending it's not. And people pretend it's just "psychological" or "beyond your comprehension" if you tell them how the movie doesn't live up to its reputation because that makes them feel better than you.
At least the bad acting in some scenes can make for a good laugh.
4/10, has some what-will-happen-next moments, doesn't really feel like a waste of time, but if you have anything else to watch or are searching for a truly scary movie, avoid this one. Sadly, its reputation made it a huge disappointment for a movie that would probably deserve a 5 otherwise.
