When Yoshimi Matsubara and her five year old daughter, Ikuko move into an old apartment building, their new life is threatened by a supernatural force.

Dark Water moves slowly, delivering an ever increasing tension and unease instead of relying on the normal shock and gore. It's very much about things that you see out of the corner of your eye or stuff you would chalk down to your i... read more

After winning a custody battle for her daughter, Yoshimi tries to make a new start. The apartment she moves into seems perfect at first. Soon though, strange things begin happening. Huge water stains appear on the ceiling and drip constantly, more liquid oozing into the rooms every day. She calls the landlord in but he refuses to do anything about it. A child's red bag shows up in odd places and soon the child herself starts appearing. Yoshimi then discovers the origin of the ghost...

"6.10. (DVD) Teknisesti hyvä leffa ei onnistu pelottamaan edes vahingossa, vaikka astetta hiuksia nostattavampaa kyytiä olin uumoillut. Sen sijaan loppu on lähellä liikuttavaa savinaamaisen pikkutytön vaatiessa halausta."

"@ DVD I vaguely remember watching the remake some years ago, a film I totally despised, which only good quality were Jennifer Connelly. Yet, when I found this in the store for a ridiculous low cost, I thought I would give it a go. And it is certainly better than the remake, but it's also low on scares, terror and suspense. It's basically just build up that never gets exploited enough. There are some great moments here, and the build up is fine, but it ends to quickly, and it doesn't produce en"

“When Yoshimi Matsubara and her five year old daughter, Ikuko move into an old apartment building, their new life is threatened by a supernatural force.

Dark Water moves slowly, delivering an ever increasing tension and unease instead of relying on the normal shock and gore. It's very much about things that you see out of the corner of your eye or stuff you would chalk down to your imagination.

At a number of points you find yourself wondering if Yoshimi is actually experiencing a nervous breakdown because dripping water shouldn't be scary. Yet Hideo Nakata manages to build such dread into the constant plink of water from the ceiling.
