Dark Waters (1993/Severin Blu-ray)

Picture: B+ Sound: B Extras: B Film: B

Accompanying the nunspolitation release of The Other Hell (reviewed elsewhere on this site), Severin Films brings Mariano Baino's horror masterpiece Dark Waters (1993) to Blu-ray in grand fashion with some brand new extras and a fantastic new HD transfer. While it also features killer nuns, this film is pretty disturbing and is not to be confused with the Japanese film Dark Water or its lackluster American remake to which it bears no relation.

The film stars Louise Salter, Venera Simmons, Mariya Kapnist, Lubov Snegur, Albina Skarga, and Valeriy Bassel.

Tortured by horrible visions from her childhood, Elizabeth (Salter) travels to a creepy island to discover the truth why her deceased Father invested in a monastery. On the island, Elizabeth finds a malevolent order of nuns and soon finds no escape from the menacing evil that inhabits the land.

Dark Waters is presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and a nice sounding English Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo (224 bps) track that doesn't disappoint. Many shots of the film, notably the ones that take place inside the candle-lit monastery are particularly impressive with dark blacks and textured details that pop out in this edition.

Definitely a unique and bold film, Dark Waters finally gets the Blu-ray release it deserves thanks to Severin.
