The real fascination of the plot is that Miranda Grey (Halle Berry) an outstanding psychiatrist working in a penal institute for the criminally insane is suddenly and for reasons she cannot understand finds herself incarcerated in the same institute, with inmates she has previously been responsible for.
Everything is seen from Miranda Grey's point of view and Halle Berry's fine acting draws you right into her character, her horror as she discovers first hand the problems her patients inmates from the their perspective.
Outstanding production values, fine direction and acting make this an intriguing view.
This is one of those. There's a supernatural edge to the psychological turmoil, and also at the centre is some real deceptions and personal tragedy due to relationships. In this, it is effective in being disturbing and chilling.
I think appreciation of this is whether you like this vein of cinema, because it is a well-paced plot with a good level of viewer deception and plot levels. Acting is great, and it's creatively told and shot. It also stands up to a further viewing.
Being set in a secure mental institute, some of the scenes brought about a sense of claustrophobia, which I think really upped the scare factor, especially when Miranda was being tormented by brief, flashing images of the girl. It also makes you wonder if there's really any way out for her, whether she will succomb to madness or the clutches of the girl.
The music, the suspense, the camera angles, the actors and the disjointed time-frames made this film one of the scariest films I've ever seen. I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good psychological thriller.
I went to see this purely because it was the only decent looking film on at the time. I quickly became intoxicated with its amazing storyline and superb acting.
The story starts out with Miranda Grey (played excellently by Halle Berry) having a psychiatric session with inmate Chloe (played by Penelope Cruz) at the prison hospital that she works at. During the session, Chloe talks about the devil literally raping her, remeber that because it becomes an important fact later on. We then get a quick insight into Miranda's life. She is married to the warden Douglas Grey (Charles S. Dutton). We see her going through a small portion of her daily routine, and also see her drive home.
On her way she encounters a strange girl standing naked in the middle of the road. Miranda swerves to avoid her, then scarmbles out of a ditch to help the poor girl, suddenly she is surround in flames and Miranda wakes up 3 days leater in a cell in the prison she used to work in.
That is were the story starts.
From then we see Miranda trying to figure out who or what is haunting her every minute of everyday, or whether she is crazy. Around this time you get a good insight into how psychiatric patients are treated, and how even the sanest of people can be thought of as insane.
The film builds up to its first twist, and then leads onto it second, more obvious twist, the ending is pretty predictable but all the same brilliant.
This is a must see I urge everyone to see this fantastic film. For those who enjoy a good fright there are plenty of jump out your seat scenes, and for those who enjoy a good, indepth storyline it got it all, suspense, twists, the works.
If I could I'd give this film 10 stars.
