Brilliant
7 June 2000 | by (Santa Fe, New Mexico) – See all my reviews

I was referred to this film by someone in some chat room in '88. He convinced me that having a copy of this film would be worth while, and he was right. It now lists among some of my favorite and most played movies, alongside such classics as Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, Liquid Sky, and The Evil Dead. Needless to say that with its appearance on such a lofty list of films one could be overwhelmed by the hype! I assure the reader that this could not be further from the truth. Dark Waters is stylish, coherent, artsy, and deeply disturbing, all rolled up in one. You owe it to yourself to go out and pick up a copy of this right now. My only complaint is that it wasn't longer.
