At first things seem to be going well, but soon strange things begin - water begins to seep down, a red bag appears and disappears and a is soon joined by a child's apparition.

Watch this version over the horrid American remake. Much more interesting and a hell of a lot scarier.

Judging from the year, this seems to be the Japanese version. which is pretty good. I wouldn't even dare to see the J. Connelly version.

"Dark Water" by Yojimbo

Hideo (Ringu) Nakata once again wheels out the old J horror staple of young woman stalked by mysterious child after moving into a new apartment with her young daughter. The fact is that there's nothing really WRONG with this film (aside from when the soundtrack skirted dangerously close to power ballad territory), it's just that we've seen it all before. To the point where I knew what the so-called "twist" would be virtually from the outset, and spent the first hour wishing he'd just cut to the chase. There are a couple of atmospheric scenes, but otherwise it's strictly by the numbers and a little sterile, with an occasional lapse in logic (has this woman never heard of a staircase...?!) Not bad, but nowhere near as good as the very similar Ju On.
