Dark Water is a ghost story that is more melancholy than fright. I think one of the bad things that this movie endured was that it had the label of a horror movie on it. If you are looking for a horror movie or something to scare the pants off you, keep moving you won't find it here. This movie as said above is more of a touching heartfelt story between mother and daughter than a ghost looking to kick some butt. Overall the movie ended on a good feeling and there is a couple "jump frights" but not enough to make this a horror or scary movie. I like the movie for what was present in it. There was a good plot, a close mother and daughter bond and a building that holds some paranormal mysteries of its own. I still wouldn't recommend this movie for the younger audiences it does deal with some social content that they might find hard to comprehend. But if you like ghost stories like older movies such as "The Changeling" and "The Lady in White" then this movie is for you.
