Ghoul: Season 1 (2018)

TOMATOMETER

——

Critic Consensus: Short, spooky, and surprisingly poignant, Ghoul's concentrated brand of horror is familiar, but effective.

Critic Reviews for Ghoul Season 1

A fresh take on horror TV, Ghoul simplifies the genre while maintaining a tense plot condensed with fine characters. [Full review in Spanish]

All together, Ghoul is a bit all over the place, but it does show promise for writer-director Patrick Graham and serves as a great introduction to Indian horror films.

Ghoul is a bite-sized horror treat that blends Thing-style paranoia and terror with a very personal story of one woman coming to terms with her choices and the price her loved ones paid for them.

Three (or so) episodes is enough to establish backstory to get you to care about the characters. The first episode of Ghoul doesn't have the same splash as the next two, but it's incredibly important to the payoff of the third episode.

Ghoul is a fine way to pass three-ish hours, and Apte is a find.

Brutally violent dystopic horror story explores myth.

Aug 28, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Ghoul is let down by its reliance on cliched genre writing such as characters behaving stupidly for the sake of the plot or falling prey to narrative convenience towards the end to drive up the tension.

Ghoul pulls from Arabic folklore to craft a tense, tightly edited monster movie with a fantastic leading woman.

Aug 24, 2018 | Full Review…

Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of Ghoul is its view of horror as more of an instrument than a language.

I can't wait to watch the rest of the series from start to finish - in one sitting. You should, too.
