    A woman is taken on a voyage to the other side of sanity in this moody thriller. Dr. Miranda Grey (Halle Berry) is a clinical psychologist who works alongside her husband, Dr. Doug Grey (Charles S. Dutton), in the mental ward of a top security prison, where Miranda has been devoting much of her attention to a clever but deeply disturbed murderer named Chloe (Penélope Cruz), who shares gruesome tales of torture and violence that may or may not be based in fact. One night, Miranda has a hideous nightmare in which a chance meeting with a strange young girl leads to a terrifying journey into madness. Once she wakes, however, Miranda discovers that the real horror has just begun -- Doug has been brutally murdered, and the evidence points to Miranda as the prime suspect. She soon finds herself a patient in the same facility where she once treated others, and finds that her claims of innocence and sanity do little to convince Dr. Pete Graham (Robert Downey Jr.), the psychologist assigned to her case. Gothika marked the American debut of acclaimed and controversial French filmmaker Mathieu Kassovitz. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
  • The Butcher - DVD

    Type: Event | Date: Tuesday, Oct 27, 2009

    Emerging South Korean filmmaker Kim Jin-Won takes a cue from the "torture porn" horror sub-genre propagated by such controversial shockers as Hostel and Saw for this first-person frightener centering on a group of sadistic snuff film producers and the unwilling stars of their most recent production. The action begins as a handful of people awake bound and bloodied on the floor of a dilapidated slaughterhouse, their captors casually discussing the bloody mayhem that is about to unfold. It seems that overseas audiences are hungering for films that feature Koreans killing one another in a variety of inventive ways, and these producers are prepared to make a killing by catering to the growing demand for senseless violence. Each of the "actors" has been outfitted with a head-mounted video camera, their terror conveyed in immediate and unequivocal terms as they struggle to find an escape from the horrors of this dark abattoir. As the terror intensifies, the viewer experiences the scene from both the head-mounted cameras that have been placed on the actors, and the filmmaker's cameras as well. Later, a married couple is dragged mercilessly into the Butcher's blood-soaked chamber and the husband is forced to partake in a dehumanizing game of death that pits his love for his spouse directly against his survival instincts. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

    Includes:Rest Stop (2006) Rest Stop: Don't Look Back (2008) Rest Stop The Hollywood dreams of two runaway lovers are suddenly transformed into living nightmares when a momentary pause at an abandoned roadside rest stop turns into a struggle for survival against a predator who sadism knows no boundaries in this tense nail-biter from X-Files writer and executive producer John Shiban. The west coast was a long way off, and when Jess and Nichole decided to stretch their legs at a deserted rest stop they could never have anticipated the terror that awaited them. Now Jess has disappeared, and a savage stranger with a penchant for cruel games has turned up in her place. This is no coincidence, however, and before the day is over Nichole will be forced to fight for her life against a murderous maniac whose creative use of power tools will have her screaming for mercy. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide Rest Stop: Don't Look Back One year after unsuspecting road trippers Jesse and Nicole were drilled, ripped, and splattered into oblivion, the same psychopath responsible the gruesome deaths of those two young girls returns to refine his torture skills on the three travelers who have come searching for them.
