1.0 out of 5 stars Ghoulishly Awful, June 22, 2013
This review is from: Ghoul (DVD)
Chiller TV is a relatively new channel trying to make a name for itself--think very early SciFi (but not nearly as good). It, too, has its premieres of movies and this happened to be one of them. I did not read the book, so this review is based SOLELY on what I watched.

The movie takes place in 1984. Why? Who knows; I guess that was a very good year for ghouls. Seems Timmy (played by Modern Family's Nolan Gould) and his friends are busy...warding off beatings from fathers...and mothers, who take the phrase "mommy loves you best" to a new and sickening degree. This is why I was shocked (and believe me it takes a LOT to shock me) when I viewed this movie. First, there was no ghoul--not that I could tell anyway. The only ghouls in here were the father who beat his son black and blue and the mother, who wanted to take showers with her 12-year old son; trouble is, mommy did not just stop at the showers and the network (who will not show an unedited movie) were fine with these two plot points. Anyway, some girls disappear, and the boys try to rescue them (all the while avoiding mommy's amorous advances and daddy's beatings).

Chiller TV should be ashamed of itself. Although I savaged "Hostel" in my review, it was not one-tenth as vile of a movie as this was. At least in "Hostel," you knew ahead of time what to expect. In this big, fat, overbloated t*rd, you did not. It might be one thing to hint at incest, as well as a child who has a completely over-the-top father whose sole intent and mission in life is to beat on his son. "Ghoul" takes TRASH to an all new level. It was directed (*wink, *wink) by Gregory M. Wilson, who should be dragged publically and flogged afterwards.
