What a pity!
Unfortunately, I spotted few mistakes in what seemed to be the perfect recipe for a horror.
Nevertheless, I recommend ‘Gothika’, especially for those of you, who are fond of excersising your mind while watching scary films with quite intriguing story. Perhaps, unlike me, you’ll figure out who, why and how until they are revealed.
Not exactly the most terrifying horror I’ve seen, but definitely worth watching.
My rate: 6,5/10
