Critic Reviews for The Ghoul

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (2)

Tunley confirms his mastery of macabre moods here. Now he needs a bigger budget and a broader canvas.

August 11, 2017 | Full Review…

British writer-helmer Gareth Tunley makes an auspicious debut with this blend of Lynchian psychodrama with low-budget cop mystery.

November 1, 2016 | Full Review…

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.

August 7, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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.

August 6, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The Ghoul proves to be a dark, atmospheric and surprisingly moving portrayal of a crumbling psyche.

August 4, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Like the oft-referenced Möbius strip, lots of empty surface, precious little feeling.
