The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Canal (2014)

Starring: Rupert Evans, Hannah Hoekstra
Director: Ivan Kavanagh

A family moves into a new house. The man finds a film which shows heinous murders taking place at his new residence. He also discovers his wife is having an affair. When he wife turns up dead in the canal, he becomes the prime suspect. But is there something more sinister involved?

My Take:
The film and actors doe a great job of blurring the lines of reality and turning a standard ghost tale into a fine psychological horror flick. There are a couple of things which didn't quite jive with me but it's still worth watching.

Rating: In the middle

Watched: Netflix Instant
