Yoshimi is going through a divorce. She moves to a badly maintained block of flats and tries to put on a brave face when confronted by dark corridors, flickering lights, damp spots and dripping ceilings. Her six-year-old daughter, Ikuko, starts disappearing onto the roof where she is drawn to the water tank. What secrets does it hold? Who is the other girl that also plays by the tank? This is another very scary ghost story from director Hideo Nakata (The Ring). It is chilling in its simplicity, exerting a psychological terror just as Nicolas Roeg managed in Don't Look Now. See it now before the inevitable Hollywood remake.
