Dark Water is perhaps the scariest leaky ceiling movie ever made.
This American remake of the ghost story from Japanese filmmaker Hideo Nakata (Ringu) stars Jennifer Connelly as a single mom dealing with an ornery ex-husband, a creaky new apartment, and an unsettled spirit who makes it rain indoors (probably making it difficult to get the deposit back from the landlord). The soggy shocks come from director Walter Salles, who previously told the tale of a young Che Guevara in The Motorcycle Diaries.
