great actors in a horrible remake
the original dark water was much better, more suspence better acting. i wish they would stop remaking japanese flicks into american half assed films
i like the original dark water better. i dont understand the obsession with taking great japanese horror movies and trying to remake them in the states, it really doesnt work.
Could they have copied The Ring any more for this movie? This movie was just terrible. Totally predictable, and utterly boring.
this movie is so so so good that they need to make another dark water movie were the little cece is grown up and has a little girl and goes back to the apartments and something happens to them and her mom comes back and so does natasha.
it wasnt bad but the ending was good. different from horror movies.
It is not a bad movie..but i think that the producer of this movie doenst have a lot of imagination...i thought his movies were almost the same...
Not the scariest movie, but better yet at least the storyline and plot was good. Scary movies, where all the characters are killed off in my opinion are waaaaaaaay overated anyhows.
it wasnt scary for me and i hate scary movies!!!
I LOVED this movie. I`m a big fan of The Ring movies, and this was a lot like them at some parts, so if you like The Ring I`m sure you`d love this movie. It was scary, funny, and sad--especially at the end.
I thought this was a really good movie, but it took a little too long to get to the point. The ending was awesome, certainly a change from many other movies that are currently playing.
You`ll want to walk out at any time of this movie it`s sooo bad. The best part of the movie is when the credits roll at the end.
I liked this movie a lot. It`s a lot better then the previews make it apear.
This is a very BAD movie don`t waste your money
Jennifer Connelly is one of the greatest American actors of our time... she proves herself again and again eventhough she doesn`t have to... let us all remember Requiem for a Dream
One of the greatest examples of the subtle, atmospheric side of Horror ever made. Starts slowly to build up, then quietly creeps its way into dramatic and immensely compelling territory, complimented by universally excellent performances, and concluding with an ending Completely ulike anythin I`ve seen in nearly three decades of watching. Not as instant or dynamic as other recent greats like Freddy Vs. Jason, Gothika or Dawn Of The Dead, but no less vital a part of the field for it. If you`re a horror fan trying to decide whether or not to go to this one, ask yourself this: how often does one get to see the gorgeous and incredibly talented
THIS MOVIE WAS NOT SCARY AT ALL!!! SAVE YOUR MONEY ANG GO WATCH WEEDING CRASHER !OKY
SCARY OR WHAT! I ALMOST DIED WACHING THE TRAILERS! GREAT JOB GUYS I THINK I WILL WATCH IT AGIAN!!!
This was the worst movie I have ever seen! It had potential, but was done all wrong in my opinion. Very boring. The best part of the movie was the last 10 minutes! I kept waiting for it to pick up, and it never did. Definitely NOT a scary movie! Very predictable, the plot.... wait... was there one? Anyway... HORRIBLE movie, very poorly done, a big disappointment!
this movie kept me on the edge of my seat the hole time . . . i apologize to the person sitting beside me when i screamed . . . like the whole time!!!IT WAS GREAT!!!!
This movie is my least favorite film of the year. But I thought it was pretty good. It`s pretty unexpected as well. Jennifer Connelly is beautiful and a very good actress, just not the right project of her career. The film had it`s moments of chills and goosebumps, but never really that scary. It was worth my $4 mattinee though.
i thought that this movie was extremely boring and unoriginal... it really reminded me of the ring in some parts. I went to see this movie hoping that I would be scared, but i wasnt scared at ALL. I found the "scary" parts predictable. But then again, when a horror flick is PG-13, you can`t really expect to see something that`s really scary. So basically, I would suggest that you don`t waste your money, and go watch some other movie.
Just a bunch of dripping water, its soo boring no plot and nothing ever happens then its over, go spend your money at mcdonalds
This had to be the worst film I`ve seen this year ... Jennifer Connolly picked the wrong project at the wrong time, kind of like Halle`s catwoman ... the thing that irritated me the most is the fact that this movie is MAD BORING, go watch Wedding Crashers instead of this garbage!
no offense but all you people who said it was ``scary`` or ``good`` or WRONG!!!!! it`s HORRIBLE. you obviously have A HUGELY BAD TASTE FOR MOVIES> don`t waste your money people. all these movies are the same. it reminded me of TheRing + Hide and Seek + the grudge = dark water. BUT CRAPPIER than all of those.
wow...after seeing dozens of REAL japanese horror films...this one really bored me out...predicatable and ineffective in plot, i gave this one a 2/5.
it was good i guess
If you are a thriller buff then you`ve seen similar plots several times previously. Predictable storyline..... generally boring with only a few tense moments. The acting was pretty good though.
Excellent movie! Great for those who enjoy thrillers! Has some very scary parts, although I can`t explain the genre.
its so scaryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
This movie was extreamly boring and the plot had to many gaps. I don`t really know how to describe its genre. It`s not scary and there is not action, its not a drama and it lacks comedey,I think family film would be the best to say.
I thought it was an incredibly drawn out movie. It was not worth the money I paid for the ticket. Not scary at all and very boring
the most boring movie of the year, not even worth the rental when it comes available on dvd. skip this and save your money
Very average film, and not that scary at all!
Really not worth it. Lots of questions are left unanswered. The movie has a few genuinely startling scenes, but in general the plot is very weak. Jennifer Connelly was definitely really hot and "Cessie" her daughter was adorable in so many ways--the only two reasons this movie wasn`t a total bust. About three quarters of the way through I was contemplating demanding a refund. A solid two stars! I wouldn`t even recommend renting this one boys and girls.
Well I thought this movie was going to be alot better then it was. For some reason they thought thats a little girl would scare everyone like it did in the ring. WRONG. I thought The Spice Girls Movie was 100% better then this movie. Like everyone else said DONT waste your money wait for it to come on DVD.
This is not the horror film you expect. It`s more heartwrenching than anything. The struggle for a mother to protect her daughter while trying to pick up the pieces of her life after divorce. My friend actually cried at the end it was so sad. If you`re looking for a scary movie, go to another movie. This isn`t it.
This movie was... ish. It started out quite slowly, and it seemed to take a long time to end. Overall, I give this film 3 stars. I wouldent see it again, nor would I rent it. I recommend it to the easy to please folk.
Scary movie...i ever see !!
One of the best scary movie in the Hollywood. Good plot, suprised ending, it is even better than tbhe "war of the world". Watch it!! you will remember for your life.!
awful movie!!! Pretty much the same movie as the ring...except the ring was actually scary. Half the movie is moving into an apt...what a waist of time...do not go see this movie!!
All I can say is go watch the Japanese Version it`s soooo much better with a better ending.
Not a very good movie. You can tell that it is the same writer as the ring for sure. He doesn`t seem to have much of an imagination, as this movie doesn`t differ very much from the ring. It was an ok movie I guess, and if you insist on seeing it, wait until it comes out for rental. This is definately not a movie you want to pay to see in a theater.
A huge disappointment!! Not even close to scary and there was a serious lack of plot...not to mention that they leave the viewer with loads of unanswered questions - wouldn`t even bother to rent it!!
I never write into these things however after watching this movie i feel i have to tell whoever reads this.... it IS NOT a Horror movie like you will expect as i did, not scary a coulpe little jumpy moments but not scary, its just too bad that the trailer for it totally tells us that is is going to be off the wall nuts...but it isnt.. dont even rent it.
This movie is not what is advertised. People that are going to see it because it is portrayed as an extremely scary movie will be disappointed. I thought it was more heartwrenching than anything. The struggles of a newly separated woman trying to protect her daughter and the ultimate sacrifice. The first three quarters of the movie you`re waiting for something to happen, and then when it finally does, it`s not what you thought it would be going into the movie. I would recommend waiting to rent this movie, and go see War of the Worlds.
Wow best movie ever! no, seriously, it was so boring, i went to watch it hoping to be scared and voila: a movie plot that a 2-year old could have made up!
Absoulutely thee worst movie i have ever seen. i was pratically dying to leave before in the middle of the movie and i should have just followed a couple who actually got up in the middle and left! WEll they didnt miss much except a movie with a stupid plot and not really a thriller....What a waste of film, money and actors...Trust me do not see it!!!
I should have paid attention to what viewers voted... it would of saved $12
