Trivia

The title of the film, Gothika (can also be spelled gothica), is an unofficial term used to describe a form of purgatorial state of mind, a situation in which someone sees or feels things that no one else does, and those who don't think those who can, are crazy. They simply have a connection to the supernatural world. See more »

Quotes

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?

Was not a fan
3 July 2019 | by nathanmansonSee all my reviews

That was very confusing and I struggled a lot to follow the film but I got there. There were way to many unanswered questions which was very frustrating. Halle Berry was brilliant and was really good to watch.
