The ghosts made me do it!

By chance, cinema archivist David happens upon an old newsreel which reveals that the house in which he lives with his wife Alice and their young son was the scene of a series of grotesque murders in 1902. David suspects that Alice is cheating, and as jealousy fastens its grip on him, he senses that something in the house wants to repeat the actions of 1902 - but this time with him as the perpetrator. Mixing themes and tropes from the best of American, British and Japanese horror, THE CANAL delivers in terms of both style and suspense.
