I watched this when it first came out back in '03. I re-watched it again tonight and it was just as I rememred. Great movie. You will definitely not be disappointed and I am very picky when it comes to movies. I want to start off with Robert Downey Jr. first. It may stun some of you to see him in a co-star role and not the lead role. Remember, before this movie came out, Robert Downey was severely addicted to drugs and did a prison stint. This was his first movie after beating addiction and being stable for a while. This was his coming back movie and let me tell you, even though he didn't have the lead dramatic role, he is still phenomenal as is the rest of the cast. Every single one of them carried their weight in this movie which is why it was so good, especially Halley Berry. Can we just say wow? She definitely deserved an Oscar for this role I believe. The movie and story itself is really, REALLY good. It is a little disturbing so please be mindful of that but it doesn't rely on disturbing if that makes sense. The only bad thing about this movie is, it reminds you that they don't make movies like this anymore (a dang good story line and great acting). It reminds that all the movies suck now for the most part.
Spoiler alert – stop now if you don’t want to know the following details. There are just too many holes in the story. Is she possessed, and is that a defense strategy? She did kill her husband. It seems that she did it while possessed by one of his victims, but I doubt a jury is going to buy that defense, even though her husband was a dirtbag and deserved it. And what was up with the cutting on the arm? Did she do it or was it the ghost? And the guard who hides her and gives her his keys. Where did that come from? She spoke to him once in the beginning, but he doesn’t come back until she needs his car. I like Halle Berry, and I think she did well in this movie. She wasn’t great but good, but there was too much wrong with the story. I’ve never been a big fan of Robert Downey, Jr., but he did okay. Again, they had a difficult script/story – a supernatural thriller that wasn’t much on either of those counts.
I watched this based upon the many great reviews. What an awful movie. It tried to mix a bit of the supernatural with psychological thriller and failed on both. The main setting is a psychiatric hospital with a doctor being held for having killed her husband. The character development was weak and there was never enough in-dept development to gain any sense of attachment to any character. Awful - Awful - Awful!!

Murder mystery at its finest. Halle plays the role of clinical psychiatrist trying to help a rape victim. she blacks out and finds herself in that sane facility with her husband dead. hang on to your seats folks this one gets scary and moves fast.
So, I watched this movie a long time ago but I had the urge to watch again. My ex and I watched it. My ex never seen it before and in his opinion; he was surprised that it was actually really good. And, this is from someone who is super picky about what to watch next. xD
What can i say? When It comes down to psychological supernatural thrillers, Gothika is one of the best in its league alongside the early 2000s supernatural films The Others, Stir of Echoes and much more. But be careful with these types of movies they are not as fiction as people think, America and Hollywood's obsession with ghosts and demons:)
A brilliant dark thriller with a twist when the psychiatrist finds herself the patient with no recollection of how she got there. Contains ghosts, violence and horror but not at the cost of the storyline which shows that it doesn't matter how upstanding ppl are in their public life, their private life can reveal something very different. The way it ended, I have always expected there was going to be a number 2, but I suppose after all this time that's not the case.
Brilliant performance by Halle Berry and backed up by the equally talented Penelope Cruz,top movie with a twist fast paced it keeps your attention throughout one or two make you jump moments highly recommended

I'm not usually a fan of horror films, but this is excellent. It received rather poor reviews when it came out, but I found it to be well acted and written. Robert Downey Jr is excellent in it (probably making a good impression because he wanted to snog the producer, whom he subsequently went on to marry). There is some gore in the film, but mostly its a psychological thriller. Very enjoyable and well worth a watch.
