The sound-design and editing are sharp and effectively sinister, and the visuals are the sort that might carve out a dark notch in your brain never to let go… The Canal’s no slouch and it pulls no punches – as it dives deep into walls and underground tunnels (edited by the same guy who made the tunnels of 2011′s Kill List so monstrously effective) you’re gonna find yourself inching backwards in your seat most assuredly. Oh god that hole in the wall… –The Film Experience
Lakeshore Records is pleased to release the soundtrack to The Canal, a horror film by award-winning Director Ivan Kavanagh. The chilling score by Ceiri (“Kay-Ree”) Torjussen (Test, Big Ass Spider, Underworld: Evolution) will be available on iTunes on October 14th. Multi award-winning composer Ceiri Torjussen’s music was described by the Los Angeles Times as a “sudden bolt of creative lightning.” Welsh-born, but based in Los Angeles, his credits run the gamut of independent films, documentaries, network TV, animation and numerous large-budget studio films. Stay tuned for the download link!
The Canal tells the story of David Williams (Rupert Evans) and his wife, Alice (Hannah Hoekstra), who move into a beautiful period house by the canal with their small child, Billy. As David begins to suspect that his wife is cheating on him, he also starts to have nightmarish visions of an evil presence he believes inhabits his home.
