What is more scary than a ghoul? Why a foreign ghoul of course! Gad! Watch as our attractive young upper-class British protagonists get terrorized by the nasty corruptions of the orient and the working classes.
Four young flappers challenge each other to a motor-car race across the country side. Predictably one of the couples runs out of petrol and is enveloped by fog on a marsh. The young lady is frightened by a rough-working-class type and sets of on foot to the manor to find some of her "own sort" only to discover the master of the house has been lured and corrupted by the exotic ways of the Indian orient. Much ham-acting ensues, as posh young ladies get chased by characters straight out of a Tory fever-dream.
This movie starts slow and stays slow, as bit by bit the rather predictable details of the story are revealed. Unlike the original film "The Ghoul" 1933, this film has no excellent character acting to save it from being yawn-fest.
