Eerie Irish Horror “THE CANAL” Out this October

Ivan Kavanagh’s ghoulish THE CANAL hit Tribeca hard and quickly found a home at a new distribution venture between The Orchard and our friends at Shock Till You Drop. The eerie film out of Ireland now has a release date, appropriately right in the heart of spooky season. 

Shock Till You Drop revealed an October 10th release On Demand and in select theaters for THE CANAL. The film follows “Cinema Archivist David Williams, who lives with his wife, Alice, and their 5-year-old son, Billy. All seems well until David begins to suspect that Alice is cheating on him. His anxiety is then compounded by a bizarre coincidence at work: cataloguing a film-reel from 1902, he learns that his home was the site of a brutal series of murders by a man named William Jackson, who slew his wife for being unfaithful and drowned both of their children in the nearby canal.  As David’s suspicions grow, a shadowy figure of a man, who resembles Jackson, starts to appear to him and David becomes convinced that this ‘evil supernatural presence’ that inhabits his house, never ever wants him or his family to leave.”
