Teetering on the brink of insanity, a shattering betrayal sends David over the edge as he finds himself embroiled in a sinister plot. Based on an Irish ghost story, Ivan Kavanagh’s THE CANAL is an effective murder mystery with a compelling supernatural twist. Contains sexual scenes, violence and gore.
A film archivist is haunted by a turn-of-the-century murder in this acclaimed Irish horror.
Cast: Rupert Evans, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Hannah Hoekstra
I quite enjoyed this - I enjoyed the slow build up. The detective is gold.
Turned it off half way through as got really bored. Nothing exciting half way through....
It definitely is a typical plot rising, but sinister in progression. However, it takes so long to get to the climbing action of the story that I just had to fast-forward it as the movie just seemed to drag.
I'm hard of hearing and the subtitles are completely waaaaaay off!!!!! Jesus Shudder, I can deal with your slow as fuck load times... but at least keep your shit watchable. Netflix never has your problems.
