A masterpiece of atmospheric horror.
8 October 2003 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Mariano Baino's "Dark Waters"(also known as "Dead Waters")is one of the most surprising horror movies I have ever seen.This is surely a powerful film in terms of visuals and style.The film is extremely eerie and the visuals are stupendous."Dark Waters" is pretty slow-moving,so fans of Hollywood's crap like "Scream" should avoid it.However if you're a fan of Italian horror you can't miss it.The plot is as follows:Elizabeth(lovely Louise Salter)decides to venture to a remote island called Crimean.She has chosen this island because her father funded monastery on the site.The nuns at the place are not friendly and soon Elizabeth will be in a real danger!
