Directed by Hideo Nakata (“Ring”), the film is known in Japan as “Honogurai Mizu no Soko Kara” (From the Bottom of Dark Water). It follows a divorced mother, Yoshimi Matsubara (Hitomi Kuroki), who moves into a run-down apartment with her 6-year-old daughter Ikuko (Rio Kanno). Huge water stains appear on the ceiling and drip constantly, with more liquid oozing into the rooms every day. A child’s red bag shows up in odd places and soon the child herself starts appearing. Yoshimi then discovers the origin of the ghost.
