British horror The Canal, said to be one of the scariest films of the year, is coming next month


I can’t wait to see director Ivan Kavanagh’s The Canal, it is said to be one of the scariest films of the year, and I still can’t forget the impact the films trailer had on me.

It looks to be ferocious, haunting horror of the highest quality, so now fright fans its time to get excited as the film arrives on DVD on 14th September!

The Canal is written and directed by Ivan Kavanagh, and the cast includes Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Rupert Evans, Steve Oram, Hannah Hoekstra and Calum Heath.


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. Through ghastly imagery and a chilling score, Ivan Kavanagh’s The Canal is an Irish ghost story that will leave you with a fear of the dark and a dripping chill down your spine long after the film’s conclusion.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
