The Moving Picture Show

Berry struggles to retain some shards of dignity as she dutifully plods through the contrivances of Gothika.

Georgia Straight

The same story was told much more skillfully-and with a lot more scares-three years back, when it was called What Lies Beneath.

Common Sense Media

Grisly, disturbing, extremely violent horror film.

Cole Smithey

This shoddy B horror movie doesn't deserve a national theatrical run, much less the capable talent assigned to it.

The burning question I'm still asking myself: What does Gothika mean? Now that I think of it: I could care less.

Lessons of Darkness

Succeeds in making every plot twist more unbelievable and irrational than the last.

An ceaseless stream of Fake Scares, Dream Sequences, and Shrieking Halles.

Berry's grating screams might send you to looney land too.

October 23, 2004

Gothika est donc un autre film d'horreur qui semble sortir tout droit d'un programme créant des scénarios. Heureusement que l'on peut en rire.

Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)

... the 80-minute setup for the shock has nothing to do with engaging the deep-seated fears and emotions that really plague us all, at some level, every day.

| Original Score: 0.5/4

Joe Utichi

A tense storyline and a well-realised performance from Berry make Gothika a nice addition, but there's nothing that stands-out to make it anything more.

Halle is always great to watch and this is a well-written horror story.

May 26, 2004

Lights flashing on and off are not scary. Overweight cops with sexual problems are not scary. Both together? Not scary. Or even mildly entertaining.

RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)

The only mystery worth trying to figure out here is how so much talent signed up for so ridiculous a movie.

The jumpy twists are terrifying enough; the loony asylum is a Gothic masterpiece; but the continuity is sloppy

Gothika first seems like a sharp psychological thriller, but it quickly turns into a campy, supernatural ghost story,

I would like to call out a moratorium on the use of young, wet girls looking through the tops of their eyes with hair in their face, as ghouls. What is up with this trend?

F5 (Wichita, KS)

Director Kassovitz piles on atmosphere and effects, borrows plot points from other, better films, and hopes for the best.

...prone to loud noises, loud music, and red herrings for its scare tactics. Before we know it, cheap thrills substitute for serious plot development.

Se alguém chega por trás de você e o assusta com um grito, você parabeniza a pessoa por sua inteligência e senso artístico? Se 'sim', ótimo: considere este filme um clássico.
