The set for Session 9 (2001) is fantastic; I’m surprised they use its real name, Danvers State Hospital, but I guess it saves money without having to change props. I can see why they chose the location as it’s creepy. I also enjoy how they adopted the use of camera angles without going over the top with filters or lighting to distract from the amazing location.
As is typical of a “found footage” film, though it isn’t one of those, well, maybe it’s a “found audio recordings” movie, the scenes become more intense after Mike listens to a recording, building suspense gradually with each passing minute. I was impressed that things weren’t too obvious, though I did suspect something was off with Gordon.
Session 9 isn’t the best haunted asylum movie that I’ve seen, but it isn’t the worst, and for that reason I give it 3.5 out of 5 Stars.
