About the Film

The Gothic tradition of violent change enveloped in mystery and steeped in moody atmosphere is re-imagined for the 21st century in Gothika, the chilling tale of Miranda Grey (Halle Berry), a brilliant psychiatrist who experiences an unwelcome awakening when she is accused of a heinous murder she cannot remember. Unable to fathom having committed an unmotivated act of such brutality against a husband she loved and admired, Miranda is shocked to find herself incarcerated at the Woodward Penitentiary for Women, alongside the criminally insane patients she once treated. As Miranda struggles to reclaim her sanity, she realizes she’s become the pawn of a vengeful spirit. Now she must quickly determine if she is being led further from her sanity or closer to the truth.
