Dark Water building

The oldest building in Shibuya(A little bit more than 50 years) is gonna be demolished in some weeks. The building is known because the rental space is really cheap, and it’s full of little companies that can manage to do their businesses with 20 square meters. But it’s even more well known because it was the building where most of the Dark Water movie was shoot. I think it’s pretty good horror movie (The Japanese version).

In the film there is a corridor, a room, an elevator and the building from outside. The only thing that was shoot in this building were the scenes involving the corridor, but that’s almost half of the movie. When I used the elevator from this building I was terrified, it seems they never changed the elevator since the built it. I guess they could have also used this building’s elevator for the movie.

These are some pictures I took when I visited the building some days ago:

I like the red umbrella



I think the front it’s even creepier than the corridors inside the building.

    That’s gotta be one of the best spots for a midnight test of courage.
