** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Kyle, Kunio's Remake counterpart. He's still a ''dick'' yes, but his reasoning are more over the fact he ''truly'' believes Dahlia isn't a fit mother due to her breakdowns, and unlike Kunio, he really does care for his daughter and wants what's best for her.

'''''Dark Water''''' (aka ''Honogurai Mizu no Soko kara'', translating to "From Under the Murky Water") is a 2002 Japanese horror film directed by Hideo Nakata, best known for being the director of ''[[TheRing Ring]]'' and ''Ring 2''. The film is based on ''Floating Water'', [[AdaptationExpansion a short story]] by Koji Suzuki (who also wrote the ''Ring'' series of novels), from his horror anthology also titled ''Dark Water''. There is also a manga adaptation that holds little similarity to the film, although the apartment building is similar.
