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
Arthur 'Weegee' Fellig, a famous crime-scene photographer in the 1920s and 1930s was the main inspiration of Eric Hayes. The original news stringer, Fellig was licensed to possess a "scanner" radio that allowed him to listen to frequencies used by the police and fire departments. This enabled him to arrive at crime and fire scenes, sometimes before the authorities did, as if informed by telepathic powers, to which his nickname, a corruption of "Ouija", alludes. See more »
The stylishly produced zombie face on the DVD box fooled many viewers into thinking this ghoul fest would be a polished production. After about 30 seconds one can see that this is not the case. This movie feels like a student project on a 100 dollar budget at times. Also there truly is no hero to cheer for and that bugs the hell out of some folks here. The producers of this movie definitely cut against the grain of typical films of this genre by giving our main protagonist the personality of a scoundrel. His motivation was clearly based on his own personal greedy ambition to be famous & rich. I loved the originality here & I was thoroughly engaged by the story. However the dialogue & acting was dreadful at times & the pacing & editing needed much more work. But overall the handy cam view point feel worked for me, poor sound & lighting included. The soundtrack was bizarre but it fit the mood of this movie. Unlike the bigger budget variety of zombie flick this movie was not predictable and I liked the sleazy city & sewer settings. Curiously all the movie props looked like they were from the late seventies right from the cars to the rotary dial phones to the huge video camera our schmuck reporter was dragging around. I'm not sure what time frame this film is supposed to take place in. Overall the suspense was good and the ending was satisfying. The downs syndrome punk really cracked me up with his Robert Deniro " Taxi Driver " impression. That was classic stuff. If you want something original that will stick in your head long after you watch it, this movie is it. You may love or you may hate this video but I bet you won't easily forget it! "Are you talking to me cuz I don't see anyone else here!" LOL
