We're proud to present this debut British film produced by Curzon's very own Jack Guttman, assistant manager at hmvCurzon Wimbledon.
From executive producer Ben Wheatley ('Kill List', 'Free Fire') comes a mind-bending British psychological thriller to sit alongside such classics of the genre as Nicolas Roeg and Donald Cammell’s 'Performance', David Lynch’s 'Lost Highway' and Christopher Nolan’s 'Following'.
Chris is a homicide detective called to London to investigate a strange double murder. Both victims appear to have continued moving towards their assailant despite multiple gunshots to the face and chest. On a hunch, and with the help of an old colleague - and former girlfriend - Chris decides to go undercover as a patient to investigate the suspect’s psychotherapist, the mysterious Alexander Morland, who has a taste for the occult...
The debut feature of writer-director Gareth Tunley, starring Tom Meeten ('Sightseers'), Alice Lowe ('Prevenge') and Dan Renton Skinner ('Notes on Blindness'), 'The Ghoul' is the latest standout addition to a thriving new wave of British cinema.
★★★★ "This murky, sweaty thriller is a perfect example of the best unhinged British horror" - Ed Potton, The Times
