Official Trailer: Ghastly Domestic Horror, “THE CANAL”

A host of ghoulish and visually arresting moments are on full display in the official U.S. trailer for Ivan Kavanagh’s THE CANAL.

A distressing piece of work, THE CANAL is spooky endeavor I wholeheartedly endorse. The film premiered this past spring at New York City’s Tribeca Film Festival and has since been acquired by The Orchard/Shock Till You Drop for an October 10th release on VOD and in theaters. While spanning the entire film, the new trailer for the film plays as a context-free spookshow, essentially whetting your appetite with freaky flashes of David’s descent.

In THE CANAL, “a film archivist watches the grainy footage that will be his undoing. David and his wife are perfectly happy – or so he believes. When he finds out the home he shares with his wife and son was the scene of a ghastly turn-of-the-century murder, David dismisses it as ancient history. That is, until the sinister history ripples into the present and casts a shadow over life as he knows it. And when a looming secret shatters his marriage, David can’t help but suspect the dark spirits of the house are somehow involved. In his drive to unveil the shadows hidden in the walls, David begins to descend into insanity, threatening the lives of everyone around him.”
