I cant believe the rating given to dark waters by users. Its a must see italian horror film!!
20 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

I grew up on Dario Argento and Lucio Fulci as well as Mario Bava and ive seen them all succeed and fail with certain movies. When they were at their best they were THE best. Dark Waters embodies the best of these great directors' works. It is extremely creepy. Atmosphere over substance is always a given with most italian horror films but with Dark Waters there is actually a coherent storyline to go along with the great "feel" of the movie. I highly recommend it if you are fan of these aforementioned directors. The images will stay with you long after the closing credits.
