4 September 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Ghoul, 2016.

Directed by Gareth Tunley.

Synopsis:

A cop goes undercover as a patient in order to investigate a psychotherapist involved in a strange murder case.

With Ben Wheatley (A Field in England/Kill List) credited as executive producer you can guarantee that The Ghoul, the directorial debut feature from Gareth Tunley, isn’t going to be an easy or straightforward viewing experience. Opening on a police investigation of a double murder in a suburban house in London, the story centres on Chris (Tom MeetenSightseers), a burned-out homicide detective no longer on the force but brought in by his friend Jim (Dan Renton SkinnerHigh-Rise) to help out as Jim cannot figure out how two people were shot three times each and still managed to walk towards the front door of the house. »

The softcore silliness and lite-erotic stylings of François Ozon’s horribly middleweight psycho-suspense thriller may yet give it camp classic status, like a super-porny version of Roald Dahl’s Tales of the Unexpected.

There’s admittedly a cheeky wit to the opening visual gag, which converts a gynaecological image into a crying eye. And it has what future cultural historians may come to think of as the best female strap-on scene since Myra Breckinridge. Who knows?
