“Gothika” (2003)

Alright, I have been watching too much movies lately. So much that I seriously think, that my body is slowly evolving itself to suit the cinema environment. You know, sooner or later, my eyes will be able to see efficiently in the dark… one of my hands will evolve to become the shape of a cup holder… and probably my mouth will become a small orifice just enough to fit the size of a popcorn.

Watched “Gothika” last night. What can I say? It has been a long time since I have watched a movie that good. Initially, I thought this might be one of those stupid movies with confusing plot… but I was so wrong. It turned out to be a surprise, to discover that it was actually quite good.

The movie’s got a blend of “Silence Of The Lambs” kind of suspense feel… and with enough scare elements to shame many horror themed movies. Story plot was creative the least and the design of the ghost was just awesome. One can tell that the director actually paid a meticulous attention to even the smallest detail in the movie and it brought some senses into even some of its most ridiculous ideas.

Personally, I don’t like Halle Berry… but after this movie, I think I’m beginning to like her… body. Yeah, that chick’s got a kickass body. But nevermind that. The movie’s good. Highly recommended.
