    This was a good movie. I thought they would cut some of the things out of the book because they are too ï¿ 1/2not happy family friendlyï¿ 1/2?. But, Iï¿ 1/2(TM)m glad they did not. The ending has an entirely different from the book. Itï¿ 1/2(TM)s like an alternate ending. Read this Brian Keene book ï¿ 1/2GHOULï¿ 1/2?. It will not disappoint you. I do hope that other BK books are picked up and stay true to the story. There is so much to these books that many of them connect in one way or another. It would be a great series. -aAmanda. W.

    A small town's secrets have been kept buried beneath Golgotha Cemetery, but three young boys mistakingly unleash it when digging a nearby fort in the coming-of-age Horror film, GHOUL. Adapted from the novel by Brian Keene, GHOUL focuses far more heavily on the inner struggles of its three male protagonists than the subterranean terror lurking beneath the cemetery. In many ways, the ghoul is more of a physical manifestation of the horrors experienced at home than anything else, and in defeating it, the boys learn to free themselves from their inner demons as they progress in to manhood. Unfortunately, the stronger story elements are overshadowed by a lackluster production. Let alone the continuing struggle with pacing, GHOUL is incredibly uneven, pairing the light mood of a childhood drama with the gory trappings of an adult monster movie. GHOUL becomes less accessible to younger audiences due to its darker themes as well, with child abuse and molestation being the true "monsters" of the picture. There is no discernible hero to be found either, and none of the performances stand out enough to elicit an emotional attachment to the characters. Try as it may, GHOUL is unable to dig up any interest in audiences young or old.

    No wonder there is no info about this pile of dross - could have been Stand By Me meets The Goonies meets The Hole but its some weird child abuse message story. Avoid!
