The Canal

The Canal

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

Great start, great cast. Gets some legitimately uncomfortable feelings across with sophistication especially in the first half. Begins to drag halfway through and suffers from some generic ghostly visuals (though some are quite good). I liked the ending. Worthwhile.

Components are there, but ultimately too slow and heavy handed.
