    This one surprised me. I watched it on a whim, basically at random. I'm not an aficionado of J horror but I feel like this has to be one of the better ones. What it does best, I think, is that it builds atmosphere and has a sense of restraint. Building a sense of dread and unease with the threat just out of sight is probably the most effective way to do horror and Dark Water shines in that aspect. Pretty good acting turn from the young girl as well
