Dark Water (2005)

An odd film this one, certainly dark and eerie but not really a horror. Don't expect a fright but you will be unnerved.

Jennifer Connelly is fantastic and you really feel her plight in the dump of an apartment she rents. Its nice to see an American production aknowledging the reality of inner city lifestyles rather then the acre of apartment seen in shows like friends.

The film is very pedestrian though and is fairly predictable from the start, however the climax is EXTREMELY good and edges towards the realms of a tearjerker.

Watch this with an open mind and don't expect a horror, the film has been dreadfully miss advertised in this way. Watch to then end and you will think it thought provoking and worthwhile, it just not a classic.
