DARK WATER: synopsis

Yoshimi Matsubara fights to gain legal custody of her five year old daughter while the two live together in a dark, sullen and musty apartment building. Already insecure and uncertain about her future with her daughter, Yoshimi is haunted by murky water dripping through the ceiling and walls, and by the almost taunting appearances of a small red bag that once belonged to a girl who had mysteriously disappeared two years prior. Though she desperately struggles to find the strength within herself for Ikuko's sake, her horror intensifies as she comes closer to discovering the connection between these events, and is completely unprepared for the truth which lies ahead.

director for directors such as Masaru Konuma, Hiroyuki Nasu and Yoichi Sai. He had made his solid career as a studio AD. His directorial debut, GHOST ACTRESS (1996), had a theme set on the studio environment and his direction in portraying the immense terror was well calculated. This has led to create a foundation to his successful film RING. Then he worked on horror films such as RING 2 and THE SLEEPING BRIDE and also worked on other film genres such as romance and suspense. His directing talent is now in broader range and he is respected as one of Japan's most sought-after visual creators. DARK WATER is his first film since he left the studio.

1996 GHOST ACTRESS
1997 ASSASSIN'S TOWN
1998 RING
1998 JOSEPH LOSEY ; THE MAN WITH FOUR NAMES
1999 RING 2
2000 THE SLEEPING BRIDE
2000 CHAOS
2001 SADISTIC & MASOCHISTIC

"On the horror film techniques, I have been pursuing the skills and possibilities on my own from many angles. The film could look overly surrealistic, once the direction went wrong. It has been three years since I made RING 2. Working on films in different genre has shown me new ways to direct horror films. When it comes to a horror film, portraying a surrealistic daily life with entertainment elements could lead to the best subject. DARK WATER by Koji Suzuki is an exceptionally brilliant modern-horror with a classic writing-style to portray terror, blending an indispensable item in our daily life "water" and "city space" such as apartments or condos. Reading this story, I couldn't help feeling extremely intense terror and anxiety. The storytelling style of Yoshimi, the main character, speaking to herself heightens the horror buried in our daily life to the maximum. Upon visualizing this story, I intend to throw audience into confusion on how they feel. Having made three horror films, all the skills I have gained will be reflected on the screen to the maximum. Finally, if the theme of this film, the eternal relationship of "mother and her child" somehow remains in the audience after experiencing this film, it will be rewarding to me."
