The Canal {2014}
« on: January 20, 2015, 10:16:01 PM »
Film archivist David (Rupert Evans) has been having a rough time lately, as he suspects that his wife Alice (Hannah Hoekstra) has been cheating on him with Alex (Carl Shaaban), one of her work clients. This stress is compounded when David's work partner Claire (Antonia Campbell-Hughes) gives him a reel of to-be-archived footage that shows that his house was the setting for a brutal murder in 1902. Becoming progressively more unsettled and unhinged, David begins to believe that a spectral presence is in his house and ends up following his wife to a nearby canal, where he discovers that she is indeed having an affair with Alex. When Alice goes missing shortly afterwards, David contacts the police- only to become the prime suspect in her disappearance. As the police grow more convinced that David has murdered his wife, he struggles to find proof of his growing suspicion that something otherworldly was instead responsible




Director: Ivan Kavanagh


David has a strange, semiconscious encounter in the most nightmarishly disgusting public bathroom to have graced the screen. This scene creeped me the fuck out. I think of this film and I think of Blood , my co admin, I need you to see this. I would like your thoughts on this film.  :yes:

As mentioned in my rant on the Australian release of Starry Eyes I just saw this too is cut by 2 minutes. Which makes me want to see it the way it is meant to be seen even more!

I'm intrigued by why Blood needs to experience this…only can mean good things! Amazon or ebay here I come soonish!

Just realized this is by the same director as Tin Can Man. Fuck. No wonder this was amazing. Ivan Kavanagh.

I think I know why this isn't more well known.  Everybody was talking about The Babadook that year.  The Babadook is a good movie but I think this is way better.  Both reminded me of The Shining a bit.  When you combine ghosts with psychological horror.
