      Dennis Harvey Variety Dumb sensationalism that trusts blood-buckets dumped on thesps are enough to raise a fright. Sep 19, 2007 Full Review Andrew L. Urban Urban Cinefile Angry young working class Nick West (Andrew Howard) narrates this hideous story for us in an engaging and self-referential manner that, surprisingly enough, adds to the entertainment value Dec 20, 2008 Full Review Steve Dread Central The Devil's Chair delivers everything that a movie should while shattering just about every film convention possible. Rated: 4/5 Oct 1, 2008 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...I preferred this movie back when it was called Session 9. Rated: 1/4 Oct 27, 2007 Full Review Scott Weinberg Cinematical With only two horror flicks under his belt, Adam Mason's already a director to keep an eye on. Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 16, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

      adam b Good concept but ultimately felt like the ending was disappointing in resembling the film Session 9. The initial concept of a device putting someone into a different dimension from immense pain was so much better. Still, it's effective, weirdly funny, and straight up messed up Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member No jump scares. Hardly any scares really. Entertaining. The climax is properly disturbing. More of a who-done-it, with a satisfactory ending. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member It was bad to begin with, then they added the horrible narration and start. An unsophisticated Shutter Island cum Session 9. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member that ending though! my thoughts and opinions of this film were totally changed -- and i mean just COMPLETELY changed within a fraction of a second. what a hidden gem; i'm so surprised the audience reviews didn't rate this higher. i guess i've seen enough horror flicks that i really appreciate these kind of films versus the same-old-same-old that somehow gets so popular. if you're into psychological horror, i'd recommend this one. it's got a pretty cool monster, too, if that's what you like. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review jack z This movie would get 5 stars if it weren't for Gant's horrendous acting. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member An odd illogical film. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
