She is married with Dr. Douglas Grey, the chief of department where Dr. Pete Graham also works. Chloe Sava, a patient of Dr. Miranda formerly abused by her stepfather, claims that she is frequently raped by the devil in her cell. After leaving the asylum in a stormy night, Dr. Miranda has a car accident, and when she wakes up, she is an inmate of the institution, being accused of an horrible crime and having no memory of the incident.
Plot: After a car crash, a criminal psychologist regains consciousness 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.

Really good watch, could watch again, and can recommend.
Halle Berry carries this great Pyschological Thriller of a doctor turned mental patient. This definitely has the production value to support its needs.
They do a great job of calling into question whether or not she’s crazy at any given time while still presenting the “other worldly” aspects consistently.
I even think it holds up (currently) 18 years later as there are technological restrictions in place.
Well worth the watch if you like slasher killer detective movies.
Not great, yet enjoyable.
Halle Berry is the star of ‘Gothika’, but is also joined competently by Robert Downey Jr. and Penélope Cruz; though we don’t see much of the latter, unfortunately. The execution of the premise comes out alright, though could’ve been better of course.
There’s also a tonne of screaming, most of it unnecessary. As for scares, I can’t say it produces in that regard to be honest. It’s mainly just the cast that stick out, but I still like the vibe of the film even if it never had me feeling tense or anything close.
Thankfully they kept it relatively short at just 98 minutes, even just 10-15 additional minutes would’ve crippled my feelings towards it. As such, it’s passable.
Tedious asylum horror from Dark Castle
The third horror outing from Dark Castle productions (following on from HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL and THIRTEEN GHOSTS) and the first NOT to be a remake, GOTHIKA is a surprisingly serious mental-institute thriller which eschews the rubbery gore and bloodshed of the previous two movies in favour of psychological shocks and a “I’m losing my mind!” scenario. Sadly, the film as a result is rather uneventful, with too much time spent on aimless wanderings through ill-lit corridors and too little plot to carry it through. The final half hour of the film has some neat twists and is pretty eventful, but viewers must endure an hour of tedium before the payoff.
Oscar-winner Halle Berry reveals a poor choice in movies (something proved by her turn in the following year’s CATWOMAN) and, whilst adequate in this turn, she’s hardly outstanding. Penelope Cruz does ugly and is pretty poor, it has to be said. Hats off to Robert Downey Jr who is decent and likable as the chief doctor, whilst ALIEN 3’s Charles S. Dutton is excellent in the minor role he inhabits. The only other actor of note is King Theoden, Bernard Hill, but he’s wasted in what amounts to little more than a cameo.
The most annoying thing about GOTHIKA is the lighting: every shot is dark, punctuated by the flash of broken fluorescent lighting, and the resultant gloom makes the viewing experience a bit of a chore. The horror-movie ‘jump’ sequences are rather predictable and the film as a whole has a feel of going nowhere. Too many scenes of Berry running through the mental institute seem to use similar, better moments from TERMINATOR 2 as their inspiration, and the mystery and ghostly goings on are kept too subtle, the mystery too inexplicable to care about. Sadly, these negative factors result in a less-than-impressive film; thankfully the guys at Dark Castle went back to the remakes with this year’s HOUSE OF WAX.
Okay, But Lacked Something
Boy, this started off promising but turned out to be a tough movie to sit through. I talked to several others who saw this film and liked it, but I thought it lacked something even though it had a decent amount of suspense and it entertained, for the most part.
Halle Berry plays a psychiatrist who is accused of murder. Through communicating through ghosts (give me a break!), however, she winds up helping to solve the case and find the real murderer. There were a couple of good twists at the end.
With an interesting cast that also included Robert Downey Jr., Penelope Cruz and Charles Dutton, I still think the film lacked something that made the viewer want to care more.
