OPENS APRIL 2, CERT 15,99 MINS Halle Berry plays a prison psychologist whose most interesting patient (Penélope Cruz) claims she's being raped by the Devil. While she ponders this, Berry sees a ghost, passes out and wakes up a prisoner in her own jail. Colleague Robert Downey Jr explains she's murdered her own husband with an axe, but she can't remember a thing. What's more, she keeps seeing the ghost, and has the eerie message "not alone" somehow carved into her arm, Richie Manic-style. What's going on? Is she already dead, like in Jacob's Ladder?
