Critic Reviews for The Ghoul
Tunley confirms his mastery of macabre moods here. Now he needs a bigger budget and a broader canvas.
British writer-helmer Gareth Tunley makes an auspicious debut with this blend of Lynchian psychodrama with low-budget cop mystery.
The British import The Ghoul is a clever, deceptively chilly example of narrative unreliability, presenting an increasingly askew perspective in a way that's somehow both off-putting and absorbing. It lingers.
Chris's depression is well drawn out, but when the film broadens into vague questions about the occult, it becomes unfocused, before finishing up with a hammy scene that undoes much of the careful characterisation that came before.
First time writer/director Gareth Tunley marshals the meagre resources of this micro-budget psychological thriller and creates a pleasingly perplexing enigma of a movie.
