Editorial Reviews

Something ghastly haunts Golgotha Cemetery – an entity of unspeakable evil…and insatiable hunger. It is the summer of 1984, a time that should be full of lazy, carefree days for 12-year-old Timmy (Modern Family’s Nolan Gould) and his two best friends, Doug and Barry. But when a teenaged couple goes missing among the gravestones of the local cemetery, the bloodcurdling legend of a horrific ghoul begins to seem more like reality than myth. As the body count rises, Timmy and his friends are forced to confront their worst fears when they unearth long-buried secrets and unleash not only their personal demons…but also the one lurking underground! Based on the novel by Brian Keene comes GHOUL, a tale of terror about the convergence of monstrous inhumanity and a ravenous, inhuman monster.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing January 24, 2013
By 1D8
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I've been looking forward to this movie for a good while now. The book was a favorite of mine, I felt it perfectly combined horror and elements from the movies The Sandlot and Monster Squad. Unfortunately, the movie simply begins to ignore its source material and even ignores its own scenes. The acting is a bit rough around the edges but I can live with that.

This movie simply lost the magic from the book. Even without comparing it to the book there's so many things wrong with the movie it's just a huge let down. As I said before, the main monster, the main plot point, the TITLE CHARACTER is nowhere to be found. It's hinted upon and even shown briefly but in the end, it simply does not exist the and the writer/director must have forgotten all about it. That right there is the ultimate slap in the face for someone watching the movie.

It's like being promised a cookie to sit through some boring meeting. You see the cookie plate sitting there but once the meeting concludes the cookies are gone, only to be replaced with rice cakes.

1.0 out of 5 stars MY GOODNESS THIS WAS BAD! January 14, 2013
Format:DVD
My feelings are pretty much the same as the other two reviewers. Avoid this like it was Death! I don't care if it's only a couple of bucks to rent, save your money. It is atrocious. Bad acting. Bad dialogue. Bad costume and makeup. Bad locales/settings(i.e. fake). Bad directing. Characters you hate. Well, you get the point. This one is a mess and I'm sorry my friend actually rented it. I'm even sorrier we both sat through it. There's bad 80's cheese and then there's this. And this is much worse. This should never have been made. The only good thing was when I hit the power button on the dvd player. We're still really early in the year, but this one already receives my nomination for the Golden Cheese award.

UPDATE:

I'm not sure why all the Brian Keene diehard devotees are voting no on everyones reviews... oh, wait, I know. They think anything that has his name attached to it is pure gold. Well, for all you hardheads that don't believe, then please do go buy the movie and pay full price while I roar with laughter at what a sucker you are. I guess 4 one star reviews just isn't enough to make people believe this is a stinkffest. Some people have to learn the hard way....

2.0 out of 5 stars Great possibility but total let down January 21, 2013
By BGG
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I won't say it sucked but, IT SUCKED! The DVD cover is scarier! These boys had issues that were a bit too deep to have me focus on a creepy creature terrorizing the town. In the first place the acting could have been better. Second, the plot about the ghoul was disjointed. Last, the attempt to wind a young male bonding theme around a horror theme was done only once with Stand By Me (King). This should have been either about how these boys helped each other get thru their personal nightmares OR about some kids out to catch a real ghoul. The ending was a let down and predictable but kinda like the end of a Scooby Doo mystery ("if it weren't for those meddling kids!"). Plus I was hoping a better message would have been sent about how the abuse issues could be handled. If I were a kid in similar situation I'd be left not knowing what I might be empowered to do. This has its place on the Sci Fi Channel.

I can't believe I spent money renting this. People often say they want their money back, I actually really do want my money back.

Okay, first we have a cast filled with completely unlikable people. I wanted pretty much ALL of them to die. The only people I wanted to live were the ones that died. So that was annoying. The acting was NOT good. Not even almost good.

They put pounds of dirt and make up on people who were just shoveling and doing minor tasks. Pretty much all the parents were abusive in disturbing ways and this is supposed to be a made for TV movie. The abuse was also stupid because they tried to make it WAY overly dramatic and when you couple that with horrible acting it just does not work. The abuse story lines don't even really have a resolution to it. And for some reason when 3 girls are trapped by the ghoul they just have to mention that he "Did things". All 3 of those girls were trapped together under ground and never bothered to try slipping through the giant holes they could have used to get out. And they never bothered kicking out the two thin boards nailed into the dirt keeping them there. They had to wait for a tiny kid to come by and pry the boards lose. The fake decor of the underground was worse than what you'd see in a soap opera.

Things wrong with this movie:
1. The plot
2. The script
3. The cast
4. The acting
5. The directing
6. Being overly dramatic
7. Having situation that don't even play out. Why put them there?
8. Wimpy females
9. Bad costumes and make up
10. Bad sets
11. Killing off the wrong people
12. The ending

Things good with this movie:
1. It eventually ends.

I like campy and cheesy movies. This is not that type. This is just really bad. It's like somebody in college put it together or something. Don't waste your money!

Pretty ok b flick, but Keene is one of horror's best current novelest, would be nice to have some bug budget films to do his fine novels justice.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Ending February 20, 2013
By Cindy
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The ending was stupid and confusing. Where did the Ghoul go? That question wasn't answered. It was sad with the children dying in a flashback, but it only made it confusing.
