Trivia

Her arms, on which hang broken chains, are lifted towards heaven, indicating that her suffering is over and she is about to rise to heaven. It is most prevalent in Catholic cultures. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the movie, they are supposed to be in New York City. However, as Chloe is getting into the cab, you can see a (partially burnt out) Tim Horton's sign in the background. Tim Horton's is a Canadian coffee shop not found in New York. However, in the years after this movie was made, Tim Horton's did open shops in New York. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Chloe: He came back again last night and tore me like paper. He opened me like a flower of pain, and it felt good. He sank into me and set me on fire, like he always does. Made me burn from the inside out.
Miranda: How did you know it was the devil?

A horror I liked!
7 May 2004 | by ororomunroe1805See all my reviews

People really must lighten up about movies. Before they were for pure entertainment, and could be as good or bad as they wanted to be, but they were to be watched for pleasure and not to be scrutinised to death.

Gothika was entertaining; it was fun, scary, sinister and spooky. It was good and if we look over the predictability and insignificant holes then we can maybe see a good movie. The characters were great, Miranda and Chloe heading a thoroughly good cast that carried a more than decent movie. The directing must be given its due credit, and this is a much better movie overall than the mess of 'parodies' and 'romantic comedies' that are tumbling out of the cinema right now like a drowning and persistent tidal wave.

I personally fell in love with the movie after never seeing a horror before in my life. In my mind it reaches to be one of Halle Berry's best movies to date, and my favourite movie of the year so far. Then again I can sit back and let myself enjoy a movie instead of waiting hungrily for holes and bloopers to come out and entertain me instead.

8/10
