Re: Let's Talk About Horror Fiction and Film

I just watched a film called Session 9 which I recommend to horror-fiction fans.

It's the story of what happens when a small hazardous-materials company is contracted to remove asbestos from a crumbling, abandoned lunatic asylum.

It's a true horror film, in that it concentrates on creating an atmosphere of dread, instead of startling the audience with cheap scares, or grossing-out the viewer with gore.

What exactly happens is never truly explained--the viewer is let to decide if some malevolent supernatural force was at work, or if the events depicted have a 'scientific' explanation.

The asylum in which it was filmed was a real place, and is creepier than any constructed movie set.

I give it a rating of , out of a possible four.
An illusion--with intelligence! A malignant vision, with a will of pure evil!
