About as frightening as a soggy diaper.

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
November 7, 2003
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.

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

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

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

...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.

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

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

It's flawed, but you should see Dark Water, a decent little chiller that brings a whole new meaning to rising damp.

Its cleverness relies on transferring our concern from the supernatural events emanating from one lost child to the natural fear of a mother losing her own child to the other world.
