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
absolutely loved the movie and the ending left me speechless
A good thriller/horror film. Well made, well acted. Not a home run but worth the watch if you're the kind of person who likes your genre films with a European flair.
A good movie but very very slow! Not the hugest of plot twists at the end.
I agree it was a little slow but it was still a good film.
Found it a touch slow and boring to be honest, not my preferred choice. But others love it so it can’t be all bad. Horses for courses and all that.
