Directed by Ivan Kavanagh
Whilst sorting through film footage of a horrific 1900s murder case, archivist David (Rupert Evans) discovers his family home was the scene of the gruesome crime in question. Initially dismissing the case as ancient history, David begins to question everything when the horrific crimes of the past bleed into reality. 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
Watched this on a whim, was happily shocked at the quality. First film to actually scare me this year! That's rare these days, but luckily every once in a while I'll find a great film like this!
Very Predictable, I figured out how the movie will end in the first 5 mins however it’s interesting
how do i even begin to describe this movie? it is a psychological masterpiece that i pray won't stick with me. it is just so beautifully made/acted/designed/etc. i love and am terrified of this film.
you've got watch this one!! won't be disappointed. 😶😶😶
