Format: DVD
Dark Water desperately wants to be another "The Ring", but fails miserably in its ambition to do so. This is not to say that Dark Water is a bad film, but it advertises itself as having the same author who wrote "The Ring", leading us to believe that we are in for another great horror film. But if that is the case, then the author has gone to the well one too many times. Dark Water has nothing original to offer, attempting to copy many story ideas from The Ring, but having nothing of the aura or power of the aforementioned classic.

The main problem with Dark Water is that the film is nothing more than a run of the mill version of a haunted house movie, except in this case it is a haunted apartment. The film lacks any real suspense or foreboding angst, and has nothing of the mood and style of The Ring. The ghost in this film is no where near as menacing as the one in The Ring, and the end of the film is somewhat anti-climatic. Finally, Jennifer Connolly is simply no Naomi Watts. She simply does not have her presence as an actress, and as a result the film suffers for it.

In the some ways, the best part of the film are the two eccentric characters in the film, played respectively by John C. Reilly and Pete Postlethwaite, who give the film what little style it has. They are both terrific in their roles, which is another fine example of the great talent of these two actors.

Fans of ghost movies will find this film entertaining enough, but nothing to write home about.

Format: Blu-ray
The strength of Steven King is being keeping his creepiness on the edge of what can be real or normal. This story, a remake of the Japanese film by Hideo Nakata and based on "Honogurai Soko Kara" by Koji Suzuki is one of those that are just on the edge of real.

Probably mentally challenged Dahlia Williams (Jennifer Connelly) is in the middle of a nasty divorce and due to economics is moving with her daughter `Ceci' (Ariel Gade) to a creepy slum tenement. Her daughter is also going a little funny, seeing dead people and so are we. Can her mother turn this all around and pull us out of this slump with a happy ending? Only time will tell. Now sit back and do not get caught talking to the invisible or very visible Natasha Rimsky (Perla Haney-Jardine.)

Dark Water is Creepy and Murky Feb. 6 2007
By Steven Hedge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The ever reliable Jennifer Connelly gives another very convincing performance in this atmospheric film. The supporting cast is perfect and believable. The direction is clever and well-paced, but not heavy-handed for this genre. The scriptwriters created terrific characters and believable plot twists in this very suspenseful and eerie film.

This is another well-adapted and even improved version of the original Japanese horror flick, but it isn't in the same vein as The Grudge although it is influenced by it. It is much more subdued and darker than that film and is more character driven. Some may not like this slower, more deliberately paced chiller, but that is what gives it momentum and suspense. I think it's very well-paced for the genre it falls into which is the traditional haunted house kind of film.

This film is worth owning, but not having seen the film in the theaters, I have no clue what was added to this "unrated" edition of the original PG-13 theatrical release. I can say that I found nothing objectionable in it as sometimes happens with these "unrated" releases. Less shocking and intense than other Asian horror imports or influenced films, but that made this a fun popcorn film for me and my family as there is no bloodshed, violence, sex, or nudity in this film.

What would you give up to keep your child safe... Jan. 16 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Dahlia (Connelly) is a newly divorced mother in a bitter custody battle with her ex (Scott) over their daughter Cecilia. Dahlia finds an apartment on Roosevelt Island. The apartment's cramped and the building on the neglected side but the school is excellent. The ex threatens to sue for custody unless she moves to his neighborhood. So Dahlia is trying to find a lawyer, get the plumbing in the upstairs apartment, which is leaking into her bedroom fixed, and deal with Cecilia's sudden development of an imaginary friend, and finding a new job.

Dahlia suffers from severe and frequent migraines and her ex is charging that she is mentally unstable and unfit to care for their child. Finally, getting a lawyer she begins to take charge of her life. She tries to find the source of the water leaking from upstairs and learns that the family moved out and the daughter has the same name as Cecilia's imaginary friend. The lawyer takes each issue at face value as Dahlia seems to be degenerating into insanity.

The audience can see things going on that the major characters don't see and so you're left wondering what is going to happen next. The film is dark and creepy but far more psychologically creepy than scary for most of the film. Of course, just when you think things may turn out okay there are several twists that pull the rug out from under the viewer. But this is a bleak film about love and family -- it may be hard to watch not for the violence, horror, or whatever but because in spite of the supernatural aspects it hits close to the heart for many people with less than ideal family situations.

Anti-climatic Wash-up July 5 2008
By ninjasuperstar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Dark Water is great at manufacturing tension using a contemporary project (apartment) complex as the source of shadows, dim and yellow light, strange noises, and black-colored water. The tension is level almost from the beginning of the movie until the end, and rarely is there a scary moment to break it. Even the comic relief of the daughter is unintentional as she plays with her toys in the bathtub -- although she steals this scene, it is due to her personality, not the script.

This film is largely plotless. It's also not entirely a character sketch, as many plotless movies can be. For a horror movie to be a character sketch is risky and quite interesting. For a horror movie to have no plot is downright suicidal. The movie fails mostly because it lacks a believable sequence of events. The relationships between the characters are well-developed and the cast is quite good, but there's nothing for them to do. Look scared, be scary, but why? And the utter non-ending is truly thoughtless -- the film ultimately has no regard for the audience.

I suspect that much of the problem has to do with translation. Not Japanese to English, but rather Japanese sensibility to Hollywood sensibility. Something is missing here, a finger on something important. After all, the best horror movies are about our worst fears. Who is afraid of dark water stains?

A depressing situation ain't scary, just depressing July 3 2007
By John D. Aldridge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I found this film to be more depressing than scary. The bulk of it seems focused on the soul numbing daily problems faced by a recently divorced young mother. I wish to forget the "rat-race" part of life when I am in that darkened dream arena, not be plunged eyeball deep in another's. For the most part, whatever few scares there are can easily be explained by natural causes, provided by the film's storyline. The music and overloud/overdramatic sound effects try desperately to drum up the suspense...but grow tiresome when there are no payoffs in the story. It's got a group of good actors that need a story with an arc that includes tension and release, ups and downs of human emotions, scenes that instill dread and suspense...drama. Not unrelenting depressing existence.

Why exactly is the water dark? Jan. 4 2006
By John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Dark Water showed great promise. Good actors, intriguing trailers, the credit given to the movie by misunderstood confusion with other Japanese-to-American thrillers. So where did it go wrong? After about the first hour. If you are patient enough to sit through a slow moving plot, the first hour of this story is fine. Tense moments, flashbacks, creepy environments, and anguished characters will keep you busy while you wait for the resolution, which promises to be something worth waiting for.

Then comes the let down. The seemingly deep characters become shallow, plot seems to be wrapped up, but it's not, and (**SPOILER ALERT**) Jennifer Connelly's ex-husband the movie has been trying to paint as a ruthless, adultering, manipulative, arrogant thug, becomes the hero-father-figure.

So why exactly is the water dark? The movie never really explains, but I am guessing it's because regular water wouldn't have fooled people into thinking this movie was anything more than an ordinary plumbing problem. Another guess - because in the dark is the only place the moviemakers could lead you into believing the illogical and desperate plot presented here.
