Gaddamn that movie

So last night around midnight or so, me and Karl, the two most burnt out, exhausted, in need of rest and comfort people ever decide to watch a movie.
We watched <http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0261983/">Session 9</a>, which I think was reccomended to us by Andre maybe...who loves the horror movies. So there was every change that it would be *excellent*.

This was probably the absolute *saddest* horror movie I've ever seen. But it was sooo good. The excellent slow build, tension filled, sense of *dread* sort of horror movies. Love those.
This was so incredibly good and disturbing and it avoided a lot of the obvious cliche shit with an asylum setting and really just showed off its classic horror roots.
I was impressed
But it IS a really disturbing movie (to a point where Karl suggested halfway through that we watch something else, just becuase of the look on my face) The comparisons that all the reviews like to make to the Blair Witch Project are out of line, I think as that was such a ham fisted attempt that I would have a hard time even matching up the *genres*

And now I'm looking at IMDB to see what else the directors and wow... there's just not much there. He wrote edited and directed session nine and then went on to do TV show directing. Neat.

You should go find it and see it.
It's *excellent* but disturbing. And if you're someone who's just into as much gore as possible, avoid it and go see Freddy vs Jason instead. It's probably more your speed.
