Park Films are delighted to announce that their upcoming horror feature, The Canal, written and directed by Ivan Kavanagh and starring Rupert Evans (Hellboy) and Antonia Campbell-Hughes (Albert Nobbs, Kelly + Victor) will have its world premiere on the opening weekend of the pretigious Tribeca Film Festival in April.
Cinema Archivist David Williams lives with his wife, Alice, and their 5-year-old son, Billy. All seems well until David begins to suspect that Alice is cheating on him. His anxiety is then compounded by a bizarre coincidence at work: cataloguing a film-reel from 1902, he learns that his home was the site of a brutal series of murders by a man named William Jackson, who slew his wife for being unfaithful and drowned both of their children in the nearby canal. As David’s suspicions grow, a shadowy figure of a man, who resembles Jackson, starts to appear to him and David becomes convinced that this “evil supernatural presence” that inhabits his house, never ever wants him or his family to leave.
And even though I played a small part of Margaret Jackson, I made it into the trailer too —–> Tribeca 2014: Watch The Pulse Pounding Trailer For Midnighter THE CANAL
