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

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.

Equal parts quiet, creepy, tragic, and visually gorgeous, Dark Water might be one of the best movies of 2005 that nobody went to see.

Un filme bien hecho, mucho mejor actuado y que, a pesar de ser innecesario, logra firmemente su cometido.

A watered-down version of the Japanese original, Salles's remake is still an enjoyable, atmospheric horror flick, with strong performances from its cast.

As far as American remakes of Japanese horror flicks go, this one's better than either The Ring or The Grudge.

[Connelly] does superior work creating a woman struggling to be a good mother while feeling like she's falling to pieces.

[Jennifer] Connelly's assured performance as the devoted mom struggling to stay afloat in a watery hellhole makes up for the lack of serious scares.

Because it's not a festival of horrors, there's time for viewers to notice how well-made it is.

a stylish cut above most of the recent J-horror remakes - but once again it seems that the waters of Asian ghost stories flow purer, deeper and darker at source.
