Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment and Jinga Films have  announced the UK and Ireland DVD and VOD release of Ivan Kavanagh’s acclaimed supernatural horror THE CANAL, with a street date of September 15th 2015.

Arguably the scariest film of 2014, THE CANAL stars Rupert Evans (Hellboy) as a film archivist driven insane after newsreel footage reveals that the home he shares with his wife and son was the scene of a brutal murder.

Following its world premiere at Tribeca THE CANAL has screened at over thirty international festivals including Busan, Torino, Sitges and Fantasporto where Rupert Evans won Best Actor.

Total Film voted the notorious skype sequence in THE CANAL the best scare scene of FrightFest 2014 and at Dracula Fest in Romania THE CANAL was awarded Best Film.

“On five occasions I lost control of my limbs. I’m not talking about your standard mini fright here but five moments at which I found my arms and hands covering my face and my legs and feet hanging stiff in the air” – Thomas Bell, Screen Relish  

 “One of the best pieces of Irish cinema this decade and most certainly a fresh take on the traditional ghost story” – Front Row Reviews 

 “Dripping with tension and chilling to the core, this visceral ghost story is a visually arresting and genuinely shocking journey into the darkness within” – Eric Eidelstein, IndieWire

“A stylish and scary mash-up of psycho-horror traditions with echoes of spooky classics including Roman Polanski’s Repulsion, Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now, Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining”. – Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter
