The Horror Corner – Session 9

So here I sit a dismal but sunny Friday morning. I have been absent from the game reviews and for that I apologize. I know my thongs of adoring fans are beating themselves silly right now with anticipation of whether or not I’m going to post my Horror movie reviews. So without kidding myself any further about my own popularity I’ll get right to Session 9. If you listened to the 18th podcast you heard richieraw and myself mention this thriller of a movie. Not so much a gore fest or a fright show its more of a psychological thriller that keeps you guessing the entire time. Session 9 directed by Brad Anderson released in 2001. The movie centers around a group of Asbestos removal technicians who are working to rehabilitate an older mental facility. This team is filled out by such societal winners as a law school dropout, a dreamer with the hopes of one day running a casino, the bitter lonely guy and the new guy with severe fear of the dark. This motley crew of weak and wounded workers makes the movie that much more appealing. The character development takes place sequentially throughout the film and allows you to gradually get to know each of the guys on the crew, right before they are murdered. The ending of the film is a bit heavy and relays the fragility of the human mind. Now you all know I’m not going to ruin the movie for you so grab yourselves a six pack of a nice amber beer, a girl who isn’t easily scared, and turn the lights off and surround sound up. I’m sure all you dream machines out there will love this movie for its absolute creepiness factor.
