[Netflix] Movie Review – Gothika

“A repressed female psychiatrist wakes up as a patient in the asylum where she worked, with no memory of why she is there or what she has done.”

I really don’t know why I don’t have this movie on DVD. Every time I find it on TV or Netflix I watch it. It has slowly become a favorite movie of mine. It stars Halle Berry, Robert Downey Jr., and Penelope Cruz.

I love how everything starts out seemingly normal, well normal for a mental asylum? I’m not sure what the PC nomenclature for such places are at the moment. It’s a home for the criminally insane. There that’s what it is. Anyway.

I love how it starts normal, goes completely insane(!), and then finally the end brings a sense of “everything happens for a reason”.

It’s a creepy, dark movie, and I happen to love creepy, dark movies.
