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

Brutal at times but mostly well worth watching.
31 March 2006 | by (victoria bc) – See all my reviews

This is the best amateur effort I have watched in a very long time. It is not great, but it is very good for what it is...some stock footage of fires/crimes.. news reel stuff ..to open up on a very interesting story and a few ugly characters.This is low budget , but the stabbing scene was horrific and strong, as was the "rape" that turned out to be cannibalism. WOW.

All the Characters are unappealing and the zombies , tho not the worse I have seen , are not too believable. This does not mean it was poorly acted, it is not, and I was quickly drawn into this quirky movie.

It is not for everyone, movies like this never are, but if you tolerate average filming, interesting characters, and some disturbing scenes of violence and a simple but cool story line, give this a try, what is 3.00 bucks for a rental anyways? If you do not like it, turn it off. Personally, I was impressed with this low budget effort.
