    Nope, I don't think it did. I saw it, and it is excellent and freaky as hell. One of the best horror films of the year. Now I'm just waiting for a DVD release so I can view this gem whenever I want.

    Yeah, I've been wondering that myself. I love horror and had been anticipating this one.

    It came and went with little fanfare. As far as I'm aware, the release was limited. I did get to see it. In spite of all the great buzz from FANGORIA magazine that made me excited to see it, I didn't like it at all. It was neither scary nor interesting. By the time the story resolved I couldn't care less.

    One of the best Horror films I've seen in a long while. It's a shame that it didn't have a wider release as a horror film that relies on atmosphere and doesn't revolve around a bunch of vapid teenagers is a real rarity today.

    Its distributor, USA Films, has the worst track record in the business for releasing small "under the radar" films-- both this and the equally underrated "Series 7: The Contenders" barely got any release despite great press and buzz.

    Brad Anderson must be cursed. His films have received very minimal distribution despite the generally good reviews.

    It played briefly here in Philly, but I missed it and am eagerly anticipating the DVD release! I've heard both good and bad about Session 9, but I think it looks pretty creepy.
