Great possibility but total let down,
This review is from: Ghoul (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.
