In his review of the new movie Dark Water, Roger Ebert describes the arrival of Jennifer Connelly's character at an apartment for rent on Roosevelt Island:
The entrance hall is dark and dank. The superintendent lurks in his cubicle like a poisonous toad. The elevator seems programmed to devour little girls or their mothers. The rooms are dark and dank. Murray talks optimistically about a new coat of paint, and when he fails to find the second bedroom he instantly redefines the living room as "dual-use."... It's just that, well, that stain in the ceiling seems sort of malevolent and alive, as if it were eating up the apartment and will eat them, too. And a trip upstairs reveals unspeakable horrors.The realism of special effects these days continues to impress.
