Rating: 3/5 -- It's is a cleverly convoluted tale that coils tightly around itself. Full Review

The British import The Ghoul is a clever, deceptively chilly example of narrative unreliability, presenting an increasingly askew perspective in a way that's somehow both off-putting and absorbing. It lingers. Full Review
The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Aug 18, 2017
Rating: B+ -- Writer/director Gareth Tunley's moebius strip of a movie is a puzzle piece like "Memento" crossed with the satanic tone of executive producer Ben Wheatley's "Kill List" and Simon Rumley's "The Living and the Dead's" unsettling portrait of mental illness. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- The title suggests an orgy of the undead loaded with jump scares, but this is a more restrained and more disturbing proposition. The monster here is metaphorical: part depression, part manic obsession. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Like the oft-referenced Möbius strip, lots of empty surface, precious little feeling. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Initially interesting but heartsinkingly pointless, this brooding Brit indie takes us on a journey to nowhere. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- The Ghoul is at its best when we think it's a psychological crime thriller but loses energy once we discover it's more about mental illness. Full Review

Product Description:

From executive producer Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Free Fire) comes a mind-bending British psychological thriller to sit alongside such classics of the genre as Nicolas Roeg and Donald Cammell s Performance, David Lynch s Lost Highway and Christopher Nolan s Following.

Chris is a homicide detective called to London to investigate a strange double murder. Both victims appear to have continued moving towards their assailant despite multiple gunshots to the face and chest. On a hunch, and with the help of an old colleague and former girlfriend Chris decides to go undercover as a patient to investigate the suspect s psychotherapist, the mysterious Alexander Morland, who has a taste for the occult...

The debut feature of writer-director Gareth Tunley, starring Tom Meeten (Sightseers), Alice Lowe (Garth Marenghi s Darkplace) and Dan Renton Skinner (Notes on Blindness), The Ghoul is the latest standout addition to a thriving new wave of British cinema.
