    Announced a few months ago and now at the upcoming releases list at Noshame's site.
    From what I've read so far this could be a nice one.
    Anyone seen it?
    It's only ten years old but I have the feeling it might turn out well.
    Described by the reviewer at IMDB as "Lovecraftian".Could be fun right?
    I liked "Dagon",will I like this?

    I have this on DVD and I won't be upgrading but I do like the movie. It's nothing like "Dagon", however. It has a slow and eerie feel to it and it's more reminiscent of "The Church" and "The Sect" in my opinion.

    Yeah, it's a pretty cool trippy flick. Definitely worth checking out.

    Yeah..i didnt dig it too much myself and got rid of the dvd awhile ago.In all fairness though..the dvd itself was shitty from a a/v standpoint...which never helps.I'll probably give it another go when this disc is released.

    There are no Asians in Dark Waters (aka Dead Waters). In my opinion the movie is actually pretty good but a little slow paced. It's thick on atmosphere as well. If you like the gothic feel then you'll like this.

    I second that. It's a little slow at times, but heavy on the atmosphere. It also reminds me somewhat of The Church too.

    Nope, no Asians at all. Much of the film was shot in around Ukraine and Russia, with much of the Cast and Crew actually being Russian.

    Same as above but without:
    Well I can live with(out) that.
    It's much cheaper too.

    That is INSANE!! There's about a thousand films I can think of that deserve this treatment way more than this film, but to see NoShame treat such an obscure film with such an awesome release is really cool either way.

    I like this film but never thought it would get such a fancy DVD presentation. Will most likely get the "barebones" edition.

    Thanks but I think I'll wait for some reviews.Preferrably with screenshots.
    I'm not sure what to expect from this movie since most people don't rate it very high.
    But I might end up buying the cheap edition in the end.
