I just finished watching director, writer, editor Tom Lewis' new film The Channel. This is a film about a girl named Cassie who survives an auto accident and ends up being pursued by a negative entity. She also starts seeing spirits, including her friend who died in the car accident. We follow her as she deals with her doctors and psychiatrist who figure she has a mental condition and her parish priest and his young associate who start to suspect something demonic is threatening Cassie's life.
Director Tom Lewis uses his modest budget very well, depending on creative camera work and the use of colored lighting and shadow to create a creepy mood. He also uses digital and practical FX sparingly and to the greatest affect. This is truly a well made horror film and I hope to see a lot more from this wonderful director.
