don’t be fooled by the cover art, this is as generic as they come.

Another derivative Asian horror flick, this one putting one in mind of Dark Water. If you’ve seen that one, you can safely ignore this, but otherwise, you might have some fun with it (though the acting in Dark Water, and let me be clear that I’m talking about Nakata’s original, not the American remake with Jennifer Connelly, is far superior to what you’ll find here). Still, it’s getting kind of tiring searching through these things for something original and finding cheap knockoffs. **
