3.0 out of 5 stars Third Rate Version of "The Ring" Nov. 30 2010
By Moodywoody TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could rival Stephen King May 12 2008
By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER
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.)

4.0 out of 5 stars 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars 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.

2.0 out of 5 stars 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?

3.0 out of 5 stars The Murky Depths Above Sept. 10 2007
By tvtv3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Based upon a Japanese film of similar name, DARK WATER stars Jennifer Connelly as Dahlia Williams, a recently divorced woman who is trying to make a new life for her and her daughter, Ceci (Areil Grade). An ongoing custody battle with her ex-husband, Kyle (Dougray Scott) hasn't left Dahlia with much money, but she is able to find an inexpensive apartment on an island across from Manhattan. The apartment is small and somewhat dingy, but the landlord Mr. Murray (John C. Reilly) seems quite helpful, the building is close to the school, and it's in Dahlia's price range. So she takes it.

At first she doesn't pay attention to a small water stain on the ceiling of the bedroom. Then Dahlia notices that the stain grows larger and is dripping dark water. Then Ceci finds a little girl's backpack on the roof of the building and later her schoolteacher informs Dahlia that Ceci has been speaking with an imaginary friend named Natasha. The apartment makes strange noises and Dahlia thinks she sees strange kids running around on the abandoned floor above. Her migraines become more intense and she starts having more frequent nightmares about her own troubled childhood. Dahlia believes that it's all connected and investigates into the root cause of all the problems.

DARK WATER was marketed in the U.S. as a horror movie. I'm not really sure why because the film isn't a horror movie. It does have a gothic tone and is suspenseful, but that's about the only connections to the horror genre the film has. The movie reminded me most of some of the suspense films of Alfred Hitchcock.

The biggest complaint I have about DARK WATER is that it moves at a very slow pace. The slow pacing augments the gothic tone of the movie, but it also makes the movie very difficult to watch all the way through in one setting. What I enjoyed most about the film was the actual story and the acting. The lovely Jennifer Connelly is brilliant as ever and John C. Reilly does a great job as the landlord.

If you can handle the slow pacing DARK WATER is an average suspense film that is particular fun to watch on a rainy day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Read before you watch Aug. 12 2007
By Cloud - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
When it comes down to horror movies, you can either have the types that are more preoccupied with portraying creepy atmospheres and foreboding tension. But then you get the type, which is kind of where we're stuck now, where violence is emphasized - more specifically, graphic carnage-like violence. So when you see a film like Dark Water, you get the feeling that you're going to watch the former right? Well turns out you're getting something a little different and if you're aware of this before watching you might like it.

Dahlia Williams is a recently separated woman in a custody battle with her husband over daughter Cecilia. Getting an apartment on Roosevelt Island, Dahlia's problems seem to get worse as the apartment is in rather poor condition, notably a leak in the bedroom. But then, Cecilia starts to talk of an imaginary friend and the apartment upstairs seems to be frequently full of movement and water. But with a husband out to gain sole custody, is she just made out to look crazy or is there something upstairs?

Watching a horror film, you genuinely want to feel creeped out and almost be on edge. I'm sure I'm not the only one who felt strange after watching a horror movie, like noises aren't just simply noises and whatnot. Dark Water on the other hand is not a horror movie so much as it is a psychological kind of film where it's a more slower-based tension and relatively light on jump scenes. In fact, what little scares there is they feel somewhat, excuse the pun, "watered down", as if the studio didn't want the film to be too scary or more focused on boo scenes than atmosphere. While the film does have a more slower pace which is rather atypical of the more wham-bam style that we've been seeing lately but it feels like a psychological film mixed with a horror film but trying to figure out which one to use when. As such it feels sort of disjointed and pulled from 2 directions.

But just because it might not fit a horror or thriller genre doesn't mean it has to have bad acting too. Led primarily by Jennifer Connelly, she's given the most screen time and luckily she's sympathetic and able to lend gravitas to a character when they're normally known for being either shrieking violets or just sad sacks that cry all the time. It helps too that she's supported by known character actors such as John C. Reilly (Boogie Nights), Pete Postlethwaite (Usual Suspects) Dougray Scott (Mission: Impossible 2), Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs) and Camryn Manheim (tv's The Practice). They're not really flashy roles but they don't feel useless either.

Is it a film that you should check out? Well, that is if you know what you'r'e getting into. Wanting to see a horror movie, or a character-based psychological film? If it's the former, you'll be disappointed but it's the latter you might find that you'll like it.
