Session 9 (2001)

Herein, a small team of hazardous waste removal specialists find themselves working a gig in the beautifully dilapidated ruins of Danvers State Mental Hospital. There’s an external luxurious calm that jigsaws perfectly with the internal unease and paranoia of the characters and setting, both before and after sunset. Said characters are not particularly well fleshed out, but you should be adept at filling in such gaps if you’re a fan of masterworks like Jacob’s Ladder and the Silent Hill franchise. Whereas that effort’s fingerprints can be seen on the entire series, this film very specifically influenced SH3 in several notable ways. The deleted scenes are definitely worth viewing, as well, if you want to explore an excised plot thread.
