Storyline

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 Jahad Ferif

Best of the "B"s
13 October 2005 | by (Torrance, Calif.) – See all my reviews

I've seen allot of Independent horror/Sci-fi DVD's and this is one of the best so far, I almost consider it an "A" grade movie. Obviously shot on a limited budget, the movie is still well crafted, and the acting is way above par. The idea of a sub culture living in the inner city and predating on the forgotten souls of skid row isn't really that far fetched, it's been done before (right off the top of my head I can think of "C.H.U.D." as one example), this movie is a little more believable then that one. Another name for this movie could be "The Hills Have Eyes meets downtown L.A. I'm looking forward to hearing more from Mr. Ferin in the future.
