Good Buzz and a Date Shift for ‘Dark Water’

Buena Vista announced today that Dark Water, a remake of the classic Japanese horror film, has had its release date shifted from August 12th to July 8th. Why? Because word on the new cut is that its good- or should we say maybe even great! After early tests screening here in LA the movie was put on hold indefinitely, but now the buzz is beginning and BV is confident! The original rocks and I really really need this after suffering through Ring 2. The story revolves around a mother and daughter who escape an ugly custody battle with the girl’s father by retreating to a dilapidated apartment building. Instead of finding solace, though, they are haunted by the ghost of a young girl whose family used to live there. Read on for more plot details…
“Directed by acclaimed director Walter Salles, “Dark Water” is a psychological thriller about a young mother who goes to extreme lengths to solve a mystery and protect her daughter. Dahlia Williams (Jennifer Connelly) is starting a new life; newly separated with a new job and a new apartment. She’s determined to put her relationship with her estranged husband behind her and devote herself to raising her daughter, Ceci. But when the strained separation disintegrates into a bitter custody battle, her situation takes a turn for the worse. Her new apartment — dilapidated, cramped, and worn — seems to take on a life of its own. Mysterious noises, persistent leaks of dark water, and strange happenings cause her imagination to run wild, sending her on a puzzling and mystifying pursuit to find out who is behind the endless mind games. As Dahlia frantically searches for the links between the riddles, the dark water seems to close in around her. But one thing trumps all others in Dahlia’s world: no matter what it is that’s out there, she’ll stop at nothing to find it.”
