Session 9 (2001) 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.

  • Fear Is A Place.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Phil: He was a liability. I mean, he brought it on himself... Didn't he? I mean, it's typical. Typical Henry: The wrong place, at the wrong time. Gordon: You did this? Phil: Gordon! I need you to wake up, and take a really, *really* good look at him... You know what I wouldn't do? I wouldn't tell anybody about this, because if they find out about Hank, they're going to find out about the others.
  • Bill Griggs: They'd soak the nut-jobs in ice water, or they'd give 'em a lobotomy.
  • [last lines] Doctor: And where do you live, Simon? Mary Hobbes: I live in the weak and the wounded... Doc.
  • Doctor: Billy, where does the Princess live? Mary Hobbes: [voice of Billy] In the tongue. Doctor: Why the tongue? Mary Hobbes: [voice of Billy] Because she's always talking, sir. Doctor: And where do you live, Billy? Mary Hobbes: [voice of Billy] I live in the eyes - you know that. Doctor: Remind me, though. Why the eyes? Mary Hobbes: [voice of Billy] Because... I see everything, sir. Doctor: And where does Simon live, Billy? Where does Simon live? Mary Hobbes: [Silence]
  • Bill Griggs: This is where they'd keep the extreme patients. The psychotics... You know what they called Ward A? "The snake pit."... Either of you guys scared of the dark? Come on, over here. [Bill Griggs and Phil walk away together] Mary Hobbes: [disembodied voice of Simon] Hello... Gordon. Phil: [calling from a distance] Gordy? [shining flashlight] Phil: It's me, man! Come on!
Movie Trivia:
  • This was one of the first feature films shot using Sony's 24P HD video, which shoots at 24 frames per second, like film, as opposed to the 30 frames per second of conventional NTSC video. Using this technology, Brad Anderson and director of photography Uta Briesewitz were able to produce the uniquely effective, deep-focus images using mostly natural light.
  • Actor David Caruso reports in the official Production Notes that he saw "something pass my window" when shooting inside the Bonner Medical Building of Danvers State Hospital. "I didn't want to tell anybody, because people would start looking at me strangely..."
  • Brad Anderson was inspired to use the Danvers Mental Hospital as he drove past it every day.
  • The film unit only ever used a very small percentage of the building as most of it was off limits as it was unsafe.
  • The movie is mentioned in the book Project 17 by Laurie Faria Stolarz. The book takes place one night in Danvers State Hospital. A group of teens spend the night to film a movie, and encounter supernatural events - much like the psychological aspect of this movie. The main character in the book references the group's actions as reminding him of Brad Anderson's movie Session 9.
