not the best of asian horrorBy sakuraba1982 (116 reviews) from Dover , 01 Aug 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]I am a big fan of asian horror, that being said this is just and average scare or two after watching and hour or ten minutes of build up. Nice ending to the film though. If you want asain horror choose the eye, the ring or the grudge.

clear waterBy tmt (14 reviews) from Poole , 08 Dec 2013disappointing remake of a very good film. The foreboding horror does not transfer into this version. The suspense is not held and the outcome is a little too obvious
worth a watchBy a customer , 13 Sep 2013Good film have watched a few times now,rented so other half could watch it. wouldn't class it as a horror, great acting all round.
worth the watchBy Lulabell1 (5 reviews) , 19 Feb 2012Film is well worth the watch very interesting story line.
Was not a very predictable film either which was good to see.
Not much memory of this film?By Crookshanks (327 reviews) from Newport, Shropshire , 31 Oct 2011From what I remember of seeing this film is that it was ok. I only saw it a few months ago too! It has its fair share of jumpy moments and a good twist at the end. However, it doesn't seem to stick out much in my memory so maybe just another average horror movie. I've not seen the original, which is probably 10 times better!
Subtle geniusBy Zap (17 reviews) from Lincolnshire, England , 15 Jul 2011What throws this film is being called a 'horror'. It isn't. I am not a fan of horror (I always find them silly, not scary). If you're wanting an in-your-face no-brainer that will squirt blood all over the place and make you jump then this is not the film for you. If you want a film that makes you think, however, and leaves you feeling you understand a little more of what it is to be human, then this will interest you.
Dark Water is a deep, sensitive drama probing the experience of child abuse and neglect and the impact it leaves on those who survive it. As Dahlia's life becomes more and more fragmented, echoing her childhood, so her physical world deteriorates. A true tragedy, in the Shakespearean sense. Beautifully shot, too, every scene seems to equate in a visual sense to what is happening in the storyline. Subtle genius. I loved it.
