Fair dues to Irishman Ivan Kavanagh for getting his upcoming horror a spot at the well-known Tribeca Film Festival. The Canal, written and directed by Kavanagh stars Rupert Evans (Hellboy) and Antonia Campbell-Hughes (Albert Nobbs, Kelly + Victor) and will have its world premiere on the opening weekend of the festival in April.
The plot of the horror is as follows:
“Film archivist David and his wife are perfectly happy—or so he believes. When a looming secret shatters their marriage at the same time as a turn-of-the-century film reel he is studying reveals their house to be the site of a 1902 multiple-murder David begins to unravel, and the house’s eerie history threatens to repeat itself. Dripping with tension and chilling to the core, this visceral Irish ghost story is a visually arresting and genuinely shocking journey into the darkness within.”
