Another Bland Found Footage Horror Movie
13 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

The found footage genre has just about ran it's course, not to say that there hasn't been some pretty good found footage films, but it's gotten to the point where this kind of film has become to go to for film makers who just want to cash in on a few jump scares while not blowing a lot of money on a big budget.

There lies the problem with "Ghoul", there's is nothing about this film that makes it stand out from the massive pile of found footage horror that we have seen made in the past years. It follows the same basic story line (people making a documentary) and it throws out the same basic scenes (Jump scares, running through the woods, lots of arguing and screaming), it never tries to do anything to make itself be more than "Just another Found Footage horror flick".

Blair Witch Project was a scary and interesting movie because it made us feel like we were really watching a group of people get lost in the woods, plus obviously we weren't use to seeing films filmed in that way. But now we are just way too use to everything that these kinds of films can do and it doesn't seem like the Filmmakers behind "Ghoul" had any real interest in trying to show us something we haven't seen before.

If you've seen one Found Footage film then you have pretty much already seen this. It's just not good and it's really not worth your time.

3/10
