There's an exciting Irish horror film making its way to the Tribeca Film Festival in the coming weeks by the name of THE CANAL. Directed by Ivan Kavanagh, THE CANAL is of the ghost story variety that looks to make quite a splash during its festival run. While we don't have much to hand over to you guys on this one just yet, we did manage to get a look at the film's eerie festival poster. Dig on that below!
The film is set to have its world premiere on April 18th. It goes like this:
Sitting in an empty theater, 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.
THE CANAL stars Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Rupert Evans, Hannah Hoekstra and Steve Oram.
