DARK WATER REVIEWED

“Dark Water” is so bizarre, especially when you compare it to the later American remake. It’s one of the most Western feeling J-Horror films while also playing upon a maternal lead. A single mother is fighting for custody of her child. Unfortunately, they have to move into a dirty apartment where our heroine is starting to experience hallucinations. Are these new terrors real or the figments of an over-worked imagination?

The film is shot amazingly well, as it feels claustrophobic and yet enveloping. While the American remake felt cold, this one feels almost too emotional. I always wondered what it would look like if Robert Benton tried to make a horror movie. Well, this is about as close as we’re ever getting to it. If you’re a fan of Nakata, then this is a recommended pick-up.
