Dark Water

Dahlia finds out that her daughter's (Ceci) "imaginary" friend was Natasha, who was neglected and then abandoned by both her parents. While exploring the water tower ontop of the roof of her run-down apartment...she fell in, no one came to help her and she eventually drowned. Dahlia discovers that Natasha is still floating about in there...superintendent Veeck left her to rot in there. He is dragged off by the cops as his neglegence caused her death and then he had the cheek to cover it up. Dahlia (understandably) can't stay in a place like this anymore and plans to move Ceci out. But that night as Dahlia puts Ceci in the bathtub, Natasha locks Ceci in, and asks for Dahlia to read her a story. Once Dahlia discovers where Ceci is, she rushes in the bathroom, only to find the water is filling up the whole bathroom, and she cannot break through the glass to get to her daughter. Dahlia then sees Natasha in the tub drowning Ceci, and begs that she stops. Natasha was already was jealous of the great relationship that Dahlia and Ceci shared, but now she's being deserted once more she's seriously pissed. She makes it clear that she wants an eternal companion, being either Dahila or Ceci, so Dahila lets herself be drowned so her daughter can survive. Ceci goes off to live with her dad in a different part of the city.

Continuity mistake: In one scene with Dahlia and Ceci sleeping in the same bed, Dahlia is awoken from a bad dream. The kid rolls over and pulls the blankets over her shoulder. The next shot, from the hole in the ceiling, shows the blankets around her waist.

More quotes from Dark Water

Question: Was the mother (the drunk lady that picked up Natasha and the one that was throwing up in the toilet in 10F in the dream) Dahlia's mother or Natasha's mother? Which one was imagining it?

Answer: The drunk woman in the begining of the movie was Dahlia's mother. (Remember, the husband was going to say that Dahlia was unstable because she had an abusive father and an alcoholic mother) That was a flashback. Dahlia was dreaming when she saw herself throwing up in the toilet.
