Ghoul
11 December 2015 | by ArgemalucoSee all my reviews

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.
