From the Blues
The main character is a film archivist. He walks in on his wife screwing one of his clients. He picks up a hammer but changes his mind and walks off in to the city darkness. He ends up at a public restroom were the ghost of a man stretches over the stall door and whispers in his ear.
How Was It?
The Canal is a horror mystery with some artistic, droning directing. I normally avoid these slow droning indie horror flicks but, I’m glad I checked this one out. It was a good movie that started out slow and brooding but got faster paced.
Good for fans of cryptic psychological horror or art-house pieces, but probably a sleeper to your average film fan.
