The chilling and eerie film about insanity and safety The Canal is being released in select theatres across the UK and Ireland this Friday. After Ivan Kavanagh’s critically acclaimed supernatural thriller screened at over thirty international festivals, it will now be released onto ten screens starting from May 8th 2015.
The Canal stars Rupert Evans, who won Best Actor at Fantasporto for his portrayal of insanity driven film archivist, along side Antonia Campbell-Hughes (Under the Skin) and Steve Oram (Kill List).
After David, a father, husband and film archivist, and his family move into a supposedly haunted canal side period house, he uncovers a terrible secret. David discovers a film reel that shows a grisly murder that happened in his house. The discovery leads into a very dark and disturbing path of madness.
