love it. so, now we have all three possible points of view :D
Gothika is aptly named (though the director doesn't seem to realize why in his commentary), as it is a Gothic story told in the modern day, with its "is it supernatural or isn't it?" plot about a psychiatrist accused of killing her husband and admitted to a creepy asylum after encountering what could be a ghost on a dark and stormy night. The movie is fine so long as you don't know what's going on, and has some interesting effects to sustain its mood, but the solution to the mystery is, give or take a few details, pretty much what you figure it will be by the time you get there, the third act jumping feet together into a dumb high-concept television premise. Stylish, but ultimately silly.
I actually liked it a lot! Really scary and interesting. All the actors were really wonderful. I'll surely watch it again.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
