I just saw Session 9, an apparently direct-to-video horror movie and it was amazing. After seeing a movie I enjoy I usually like to read some reviews of it- compare my reaction with others who presumably have some insight into film.Apparently no one else “got” this movie, because all of the reviews were way off base.
It seems as if none of the critics understood the ending, or the character motivations.
Mike opens the evidence box because he is thinking of moving on- going back to school. He is drawn to the evidense box because his father was a DA who tried an important case against Danvers. Phil was probably selling drugs to the punks Gordan sees him with- note how Hank tells “Mullet Head” that Phil will probably introduce him to his “escape plan”.
The ending is purposefully ambiguous, but my feeling is that Simon was a demon or spirit of some sort. He tells the doctor that Mary let him make her do bad things “they all do”, implying that Mary at least believed she was posessed. Mary’s “Simon” voice is the same voice Gordon hears at the beginning of the movie. Simon says he lives in “the weak and the wounded”, all of mary’s other personalities claim to live in different body parts.
Anyone agree or dissagree with my theories?
