Connelly: 'Dark Water' NOT a horror movie

July 10, 2005 at 7:00 PM

NEW YORK, July 10 (UPI) -- Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Connelly describes her scary new movie "Dark Water" as a psychological thriller, not a horror flick.

"I'm reluctant to call it a 'horror' film," Connelly told reporters in New York. "It's more of a psychological thriller -- a ghost story. To me, I associate 'horror' film with more gore -- slasher films. There's no blood here. You get through lots of the film and no one's died."

Based on a chilling novella by "The Ring" author Koji Suzuki and directed by "The Motorcycle Diaries" auteur Walter Salles, Connelly's new film is about a distraught young mother struggling to cope with her recent divorce, a mysterious, persistent ceiling leak, and the arrival of her 6-year-old daughter's terrifying new imaginary friend.

"Dark Water" opened at No. 4, with an estimated gross of $10.1 million.
