Dark Water

Dark Water(2005)

I have waited anxiously for this move to come out, based on the trailers in theatres. Jennifer Connally has proven herself as an actress, and I thought with an Oscar in hand, she would have picked a winning project. I must say that I was rather disappointed. It was not very scary, instead it was "atmospheric". The mood was established early on, and the constant repetition of water leaking or spewing got old quickly. How many of you figured out what had happened when you first saw the backpack? I sat in the theatre for the rest of the film waiting to be proven right (I was). I go the movies to be entertained, to escape, and that did not happen here.
