This dank, dark and disturbing psychological horror film is a remake of a Hideo Nakata chiller, but the film it most evokes is Roman Polanski's Repulsion, another tale of mental instability and bad real estate.

Dark Water is a failure as a horror movie.

It fails to deliver the narrative thrill twists its origins would promise.

Like so many recent thrillers of this ilk, many of them in some way exploiting the 'innocence' of childhood -- the dumb and unpleasant Hide and Seek springs to mind -- Dark Water falls apart in the wind-down.

That fatal flaw that this shares with the original is the best part of the film being in the initial plot-revealing 20 minutes. From here, it fails to build on the tension.

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.

Evolves from a supernatural mystery to a truly sad tragedy...

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.

This scary movie is too creepy for little kids.

Unfortunately, the supernatural element is underplayed to the extent that the story almost became nothing more than a domestic drama.

This murky urban ghost story about a possible haunted hi rise of horrors, basically lets the all-natural creepiness already native to its NYC landscape just do its deadly thing, likely intensified by 9/11's architectural carnage.

A moody, quirky movie that, although flawed, is worth a walk to the theatre in a gentle rain.

The gore-free Dark Water tries hard to establish a creepy atmosphere, but instead winds up being slow moving with not much happening.

Please god, just let this one get flushed and float away.

A mature film about the courage it takes to survive in a mortal world that's dependent on temporary relationships.
