Arrow Video USA plunges into DARK WATER (review)

Hideo Nakata's follow-up to RINGU and RINGU 2 adapts another Koji Suzuki story with DARK WATER.  Going through a custody battle, Yoshimi must settle for a rundown apartment for herself and daughter Ikuko.  A sinister spreading stain across the ceiling turns out to be the least of her problems when Ikuko starts talking to an imaginary friend who may be the ghost of a girl who disappeared in the building.
