Fresh: 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

- Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: ...I preferred this movie back when it was called Session 9.

- David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews, Friday, April 17, 2009

Rotten: Dumb sensationalism that trusts blood-buckets dumped on thesps are enough to raise a fright.

- Dennis Harvey, Variety, Wednesday, September 19, 2007

The Devil's Chair is one of those films that has a good concept for a film, unfortunately , the filmmakers don't know how to build up on the idea and ends up with a really bad film. This film sucks. The film seemed interesting, and I thought the film had an interesting idea for a film. Unfortunately, the film just didn't deliver. The Devil's Chair is an awful film that has a poor plot. I felt that that film was poorly made, and that director Adam Mason directed a film that is simply bland, tired and overall unimpressive. I hated the film, and thought it was a mess. There are many sequences that simply don't make sense, and frankly don't add anything of interest to the film. This film might have worked if the script would have been worked on a little bit harder. There was some interesting ideas for a film, but none seem to really work. The Devil's Chair was a bad horror flick with a poor cast, poor directing and a poorly constructed script. This was boring, and The Devil's Chair was simply a forgettable film not worth your time. I thought that the film was a missed opportunity to do something truly memorable. The film tried too hard to deliver on the gore with little emphasis on horror. Adam Mason is terrible director in the genre. This film just goes to show that he isn't capable of directing a film that has genuine terror or suspense. That's what this film lacks.

Really weird and strange supernatural horror movie that made me really confused in the crime scene between a brilliant psychology professor, his students and the accused killer. The screenwriter made this story really silly and not 100% perfect to understand from the beginning to end of the killer.
