GHOUL is a supernatural horror film involving the real life story of the Soviet Union's most violent serial killer, Andrei Chikatilo. Three Americans travel to the Ukraine to film a documentary about the cannibalism epidemic that swept through the country during the famine of 1932. After being lured deep into the Ukraine forest for an interview with one of the last known survivors, they quickly find themselves trapped in a supernatural hunting ground.Written by
Ghoul is an absolutely execrable pseudo-documentary "horror" film with hateful characters who videotape every second from their useless lives and have never-ending arguments in order to fill in the time between "terrifying" moments which don't generate any terror, suspense or even surprise. The only positive thing about this piece of junk is that it lasts for only 86 minutes, so the holy end credits don't take too long to show up. And the least I say about the actors, the better... their performances make their characters even more hateful than they already are. The screenplay is a confusing parade of unconnected ideas which desperately try to wake any interest on us; in other words, we have a cannibal, ghost appearances, demonic possession, spiritualist sessions, dark catacombs, a post-Soviet witch and videos from a serial killer... anything to fill in the time and unnecessarily complicate the awful screenplay. Might we have reached the lowest point in "found footage" cinema? Might things get better after this vomitive film? I don't think so. In fact, it seems that things can always fall lower in this type of cinema. "Hope is a mistake", like Max Rockatansky says in Mad Max: Fury Road. If you excuse me, I'm going to rewatch that masterpiece in order to erase Ghoul from my memory.
