5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating, 3 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Dark Water [VHS] [2003] (VHS Tape)
This film is one of the best films (not just horror) to have come out of Japan. It is directed by Ring master, no not Sauron but Hideo Nakada and the author of Ring, Koji Suzuki. Both men combine (again) to produce a brilliant film. There are inevitably Ring influences but seeing how good that movie is, is that a bad thing? No, I think not. Have you not seen the film then here's a quick synopsis. Unfit Mother Yoshimi (she goes to the same school of bad parenting as Reiko!) fights for custody of her only child Ikuko, she moves in old apartment where there's a leak, things start to go funny as leak gets bigger plus there's an omnipresent red bag that keeps popping up. Ghost of a little girl starts appearing and making Ikuko isolate herself from friends and more importantly her Mother. Things get to a head and the ending has tearjerker all over it. Guys were in tears at the cinema it really does break your Heart. This adds evidence (as if we needed any more) to the debate that Japanese films are more emotionally binding with the viewer than pretentious American rubbish ever can be. One not to miss.
