YMMV / Gothika

  • Complete Monster: Dr. Douglas Grey and Sheriff Ryan are two sadistic serial killers and rapists who have destroyed countless lives for their depraved gratification. When Doug killed his first victim when he was 16, Ryan eagerly participated. They used the basement of a nearby cabin to keep their female victims alive for weeks, raping them repeatedly and filming it before finally killing them. They also used Doug's position as the warden of a mental asylum to rape the inmates there, knowing that nobody would believe them. Doug and Ryan seemed to get off not only on the rapes but the power it gave them over their victims, with both noting that it made them feel like gods.
  • Critic-Proof: The film made back over three times its budget, but currently holds only a 15% rating at Rotten Tomatoes.
