Storyline:

After a car crash, a criminal psychologist (Halle Berry) comes to, only to find that she’s a patient in the same mental institution that currently employs her. It seems she’s been accused of murdering her husband — but she has no memory of committing the crime. As she tries to regain her memory and convince her co-workers of her innocence, a vengeful spirit uses her as an earthly pawn, which further convinces everyone of her guilt.

One review

  • “Gothika” was good, but not great. There were a few creepy scenes from time to time but not the kind that makes you stay up all night… Just the kind that makes you think for a while but then you forget it. The acting by all was good and the storyline was easy to follow. In fact it’s more of a whodunnit than a ghost story, and the ghost aspect is a lot more believable than the resolution. However the movie is still worth watching – but purely for Halle Berry. She is an amazing actor, who can transform herself apparently effortlessly from smart, sexy, clinical psychologist to screaming, messed-up mental patient. All in all, like I said… good, but not great!
