movie review

title: dark water
starring: jennifer connelly, camryn manheim, pete postlethwaite, and a bunch of people i didn't recognize.

the movie would make a lot more sense if they told you at the beginning, rather than at the end, that it was based off of a japanese novel. in my experience, japanese writing tends to make very little sense, which is about what this movie did. it was billed as a scary movie; it was fairly dark, but more startling than actually scary. and very strange.

verdict: worth watching, but not worth paying for. wait till it's out on DVD. [unless, like me, you like jennifer connelly, in which case it's probably worth paying for]
