Eric Hayes is a stringer. One notch below the lowest rung of the journalistic ladder. A video vulture preying on police chases, ambulance runs, and random street violence, selling his footage to the highest bidder and living on a steady diet of cigarettes and bloodlust. For years, Eric has lived off of other people's pain and misery. But he's about to discover something beneath the streets of Los Angeles even hungrier for blood than he is. He's about to discover THE GHOULS. Written by
Looking around on the internet, one will get mixed reviews for this independent film. Some comments will read "horrible effects/Script/Actors", others I read said "Great effects/actors, solid script and see to believe makeup/scenes". The truth lies somewhere in the middle.
I hadn't even heard of this film before plucking it off the shelf(to rent) at the video store. It's definitely not an average horror film. It includes some very unique/sloppy (you can decide) camera angles. Some shots seem too zoomed in, or perhaps not enough takes were done. The script has it's downfalls (character depth), and seems slightly, if not more, rushed. The dialog could use some work...
Having said that, this movie is worth seeing. The plot starts slowly, but once one gets into it, it can surly keep one's attention. There are some gruesome scenes, and it will shock, if not scare you. An overall dark mood throughout, comparable to 28 days later(the mood), but by no means the same.
If you expect to see a typical movie with this one, you're way off. Original, unique... there's definitely something here you can't get from big budget Hollywood movies. It's hard to forget about this one anytime soon after watching it.
A graph of this movie would start at the bottom and end at the top... slow starting but grows and grows to something... (for lack of a better term) better.
