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

"A mother and her 6 year old daughter move into a creepy apartment whose every surface is permeated by water. Well this is a very good horror movie for parents as things will hit home quite deep...not so sure for singles... "

"@ 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.

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.
