Gothika is not a horror film, plain and simple. It isn't quite a ghost story, either. It is most definitely a psychological thriller.
The beginning is well paced, although I wanted a little more. The middle of the movie is great; there was a lot of excitement and action. Then came the end. It was very predictable and a little quick. I felt like they could have explained more.
I watch a lot of Horror films and this one did make me jump, however, this certainly isn't the kind of stuff... (read more)

Gothika - There are a lot of parents who let their underage children watch movies that are MA, or even R, if they are younger than 15, and Gothika is one of those movies where I'd strongly recommend they DO NOT do that.

Gothika is a good stylish modern horror film, with a few twists to seperate it from other recent mediocre horror flicks. The film has a great deal of creepy factor, and the films story draws you in, wanted to know the mysterious events that began the film. Halle Berry gives a strong performance as always, I'd say the only problem with the film is the ending isn't quite as clever as you hope it might be. (read more)

Gothika is a film about a psychiatric doctor and her life, I won't give too much away as I suspect all you horror fans are itching to see it! Not only is this film scary but unlike most other horror/thriller films I have seen it has a great storyline throughout and keeps you guessing!! (read more)
