Nominated for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer at the BAFTAs 2018.
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
