The Greatest Horror Movies You Haven’t Seen

Session 9

This indie effort from Brad Anderson, who went on to direct episodes for Boardwalk Empire and The Killing, is one of the more underappreciated horror films of the past few decades. Oozing atmosphere, the film is utterly chilling, thanks in no small part to the setting — an abandoned mental institution where an asbestos cleaning crew uncovers the dark secrets of the building’s past. Session 9 doesn’t rely on the usual horror film scares and immerses audiences in its quiet terror and intense performances — including (surprisingly) David Caruso.
