Directed by Walter Salles Jr., this remake of Hideo Nakata's supernatural psychological drama Honogurai Mizuno Soko Kara revolves around the plight of a single mother (Jennifer Connelly) whose messy divorce and subsequent battle for the custody of her five-year-old daughter is taking a heavy toll on her emotional well-being. Ultimately, the mother and daughter are able to relocate to an apartment, which, despite its excessively dilapidated interior, seems to be an adequate location for beginning a new life. Before long, however, what appears to be the spirit of a young girl begins to haunt them. No stranger to mental illness, the wary young woman brushes the visions aside as part of the inherent stress of making the transition from housewife to working, single mom. As time goes by and the apparent haunting does not subside, the apartment's new residents are forced to examine the history of its former tenants. Dark Water also features performances from John C. Reilly, Tim Roth, and Dougray Scott. ~ Tracie Cooper

This film is ok, not scary, more of a drama than anything else. Parts of it could have been made frightening, and intense, but they weren't. All in all, wait for it to be on tv.

I saw this movie the first day in theaters and I bought it when it came out. It is aedge of your seat thriller that is not to scary, but is a well made movie. I reccomend watching it

I won't say that this was a poor movie,but it doesn't seem to make any sense to me.I did not understand it.From what I can remember it was stupid.I was diappointed.I am still going to buy it on DVD,though.Maybe then I could understand it.I am not one to be so pessimistic about a movie,but Dark Water is an acception.If there was a rating of a questionmark,that's what I would rate it:?

How can anyone say this was a good movie? Okay the acting is good, but the movie is not scary! It's really boring and does not keep your attention! I saw it in theaters and somehow made it through just to see if the end was worth it, but nothing is really that good about the movie. Not recommended!

I expected this move to be scary, maybe not great, but scary. Boy was I wrong. About every five seconds, I thought, "This is it, this is the scary part." I would flinch and squint my eyes in preparation, but the sacry moment never came, and I watched the UNRATED version. So I wonder, how aweful was the original? Don't waste your time on this movie. It's really not worth it.

Totally not what I expected. Not scary or "suspenseful" at all. Ok, I take it back... It left me in suspence wondering when the real action or creepy stuff would come. But it never did. Seems the majority of the movie was focus on the mothers problems, then she dies at the end. What's with THAT?!? When this movie was finally over, I thought it was a COMPLETE waste of time. Good thing we only rented it! Had it been labeled as a drama, it MIGHT have been OK. But don't expect much from it otherwise..

This is one of the better movies that I have seen. It was very touching to see how a mother would help her daughter so much in such a tough part of both of their lives. I think that every mother could relate to the mother in this movie in some way or another, especially at the end. It just reminds me that my mother is always with me, no matter where I am.
