1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst movies ever made. Bad acting. Horrible all around., January 13, 2013

This review is from: Ghoul (Amazon Instant Video)
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!

Agree. I have never seen what was suppose to be a mainstream movie, even a low budget one, with such poor acting and production value. I'm not sure what the problem was. The child actors weren't amateurs, with Nolan Gould, even having a role in the sitcom "Modern Family". Unfortunately, they come off with less polish than your average Junior High theatre production. One of them, even kept glancing to the side everytime he was having a conversation with another character, reading a script or taking cues I assume. There was even a couple instances of flubbed lines that were left in, very poor production. Then there was the part you mentioned about the three girls supposedly being held captive by the mindless, evil Ghoul. Who we are led to believe, raped them mutliple times and boarded them up in a wall to eventually kill and eat. Yet, they were all fully clothed (including shoes) when found. Mighty considerate of that depraved mindless ghoul to let them dress between rapes... (I know it's relatively minor, but stuff like that annoys me...)
