Benefits from having an undercurrent of sadness, which makes it feel quite similar to the ghost stories in Kwaidan.

He [Nakata] wants us to absorb, to feel a location, and to understand the plight of the characters before he goes any further.

Um terror bem construído que não quer apenas provocar sustos passageiros, mas sim estabelecer um clima de tensão constante e personagens com os quais realmente nos importemos.
| Original Score: 5/5

Shadows on the Wall
February 23, 2004
With extremely heavy echoes of his own 1998 film Ringu, Nakata is on subtle creep-out form here rather than big horror movie mode.

just beneath its surface horror this film conceals a deep reservoir of tragedy, addressing themes like family breakdown, isolation, abandonment, and - something of a taboo in Japan - the terrible legacy of mental illness.

The picture is melancholy remembrance and its sources of fear are intimate and brilliant.

...while Dark Water isn't a complete wash (no pun intended), watched side-by-side with Ringu, it ultimately comes off as a pale successor.

So much of Dark Water is contrived that it defies the mind to try to make sense of it.
| Original Score: 2/5
July 16, 2003
A horror movie that sits there and drags and seems very full of itself, and is based on the premise that puddles are scary. They're not.
| Original Score: 1/4
