SESSION 9 Blu-ray Release Details

Brad Anderson‘s Session 9 (2001) is releasing on Blu-ray on August 16, 2016, via Scream Factory. The special features list is not too bad, but I was expecting a little more. Check out the list below for yourselves and tell us what you think.

Press Release: Fear is a place… A "deft exercise in atmospheric horror" (L.A. Weekly) that takes place in an abandoned mental hospital, Session 9 makes its Blu-ray debut courtesy Scream Factory on August 16th, 2016. This release comes packed with new bonus features, including interviews with cast and crew, and Horror’s Hallowed Grounds, a new revisiting of the locations of the film.
It looms up out of the woods like a dormant beast. Grand, imposing… abandoned and deteriorating, the Danvers State Mental Hospital, closed down for 15 years is about to receive 5 new visitors.

Donning protective gear, the men of the Hazmat Elimination Co. venture into the eerily vast and vacant asylum that is filled with an evil and mysterious past. Rampant patient abuse, medieval medical procedures and rumors of demonic possession are some of the many dark secrets the hospital holds - but then so do each of the men.

This "deliciously disturbing" (Us Weekly) thriller, directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist), features a talented cast including David Caruso (CSI: Miami), Peter Mullan (War Horse, Trainspotting), Paul Guilfoyle (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), Josh Lucas (American Psycho), Stephen Gevedon (Show Me a Hero) and Brendan Sexton III (The Killing, Boys Don’t Cry).
