Dark Water – 2005 – Walter Salles

49m.jpgDark Water drowns under the weight of well, water and expectation. Not a scene goes by in this ‘timid horror’ without a flood, a downpour, a constant leak, an exploding toilet. The problem is that DW is essentially not a horror (neither was the original Japanese version). Jennifer Connelly stars as a newly separated mum trying to start anew with her daughter. However, the occupants of flat 10 F have otherworldly desires for the pair. Disappointing. JJ
