    Very cool, very Lovecraftian. It's not seen or talked about much, which is unfortunate, because it's a quality love-letter. Great ending!

    Stylish, but ultimately lacking, this Eastern European horror film features a lot of mean nuns, creepy townsfolk, and, well, water. It looks nice, and I think a lot of good elements went into the film, which I can only imagine was done on the cheap. Perhaps it needed to be shorter. Perhaps it needed more story. I'm not sure. But the random murderous nun attacks became almost laughable, and nobody seemed especially interested in doing anything, be it evil or good. OK, but not great.

    This movies owns. All over the place. Imagine Lovecraft meets Argento/Soavi... Definately one of the best...

    When I rented it, I remember two words shot through my mind. Skeleton Key! But I still gave it a try. Why? shot through my mind when the end credits were scrolling up.

    Rather surreal and full of disturbing images although the plot is slow to develop. Very interesting. Parents would think it is utterly nonsense.

    Beautifully eerie at times, with echoes of Lovecraft - think Dagon / Shadow Over Innsmouth / Call of Cthulhu. Highly atmospheric, Dark Waters is flawed (the story is muddled) but is still perfect midnight viewing. The blind nuns and painter remind me of something out of a Lucio Fulci flick, the visuals are as arresting as anything Argento has done. This won't be for everyone - the pace will put a lot of people off - but stick with it, and lose yourself in the grim, gothic atmosphere.

    "Shadow Over Innsmouth" if Lovecraft was really afraid of nuns, with Bavaesque lighting design and Argento-y camerawork (not always a good match, though). Weird as hell.

    The premise to this movie *could* be interesting if the entire movie didn't work to suck so bad that you forget there is a premise at all. ugh.
