Dark Water Reviews

The supporting characters, in fact, are the most enjoyable part of the film, often more enjoyable than Connelly or Gade, each taking great advantage of their scenes to create real people in a short space of time.

...a horror film that suffers from a lack of commitment. Its story and characters are as murky as the water that flows endlessly throughout it.

It's so lacking in heartfelt frights or cheap scares that the few real hair-raising moments, in the finale, don't pay off.

Excruciating and less scary than a clogged up toilet, Dark Water should be allowed to quietly drain.

Dark Water has plenty of creepy moments, but few scares, and it becomes bogged down in setup.

The film's greatest mystery turns out to be: Why, with so much talent, does Dark Water never cross the tipping point?

No amount of tastefully desaturated color or imaginary friends going whoo-whoo in the deserted apartment upstairs can save this lumbering echt-thriller from fatal tedium.

A single mother, a mysterious haunting, urban terror: This well-crafted Japanese horror remake has a too-familiar "Ring" to it.

Dark Water is based on one of those low-key Japanese chillers where there are a whole lot of potentially scary things and maybe one thing that actually turns out to be scary.

A moldy, third-generation retread of The Ring.

Japan's chief horror export used to be a giant fire-breathing lizard who smashed cities and destroyed things. Now it's damp girls who crawl around and harass new homeowners.

[Dark Water] is dripping with clammy, claustrophobic atmosphere, but ultimately reveals itself as just another mildewed, child-centric ghost story of little import or resonance.

A dull and occasionally risible remake of an even duller, more risible Japanese horror flick ...

Although the film portends to be a creepy ghost story, you'll more than likely be bored to tears, which, of course, will be lost in all the icky water gushing everywhere.

The only thing scary about Dark Water is the fact the movie never seems to end.

Esteemed Brazilian director Walter Salles ("The Motorcycle Diaries") falls flat on his face on his first Hollywood outing with a horror movie that will bore you to tears.

Dark Water has more substance and a more interesting look than many horror films, but the familiar elements of the story disappoint.

The tagline says, 'Some mysteries were never meant to be solved.' Unfortunately, the filmmakers solve it for you just a few minutes into the movie.
