DARK WATERS REVIEWED
“Dark Waters” puts me in a place that I rarely get to visit. While I know a decent amount about Italian horror, I always find the random movie that knocks me for a loop. This film about a young girl trying to reconnect to her past is kinda odd. What did her dad have to do with a Convent? Why does she feel drawn to it? Hell, why does everyone else she travels with seem crazy?
While the HD upgrade seems amazing, I’m not sure if I’m seeing anything new. But, it’s not like this film has been easy to find on home video. I’ll chalk this one up to being impressed by what Severin can pull off with its reach. The real winner on this disc are the 4 hours of special features that helped me to get a beginning grasp on the film.

The Plot Thus Far
It has been acclaimed as “visually amazing” (Videoscope), “deeply disturbing” (BBC Radio One), “a must see for serious horror buffs” (Film Review), and compared to the works of Bergman, Bava and Argento. Now experience the modern Nunsploitation masterpiece from co-writer/director Mariano Baino as you’ve never seen or heard it before: When a young Englishwoman attempts to discover her mysterious connection to a remote island convent, she will unlock an unholy communion of torment, blasphemy and graphic demonic depravity.
Louise Salter (INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE) stars in this “stunning and horrifying debut” (Digitally Obsessed) filmed on location along the grim Ukraine coast now transferred in HD from the original 35mm negative and featuring over 4 hours of startling Special Features.
