Critical Condition: Ghoul

Ghoul | Netflix, from Friday

➢➢ “Ghoul is very different compared to anything Netflix has released before. First up, the show has only three 45-minute episodes. Ghoul wasn’t produced as a web-series; it was acquired during post production. Overall, the series runtime clocks in at just two hours and 16 minutes, practically a feature film … Although it has its fair share of jump scares, Ghoul thrives on creating That Eerie Feeling from the very first scene. It uses rain, long pauses and isolated foley effects to build suspense, and keep you wondering.” — GQ India.

➢➢ “The three-part Indian original horror miniseries may not have been successful in spinning a flawless and chilling yarn but breathes new life in the horror genre with its subversive plot … set in a dystopian world that is at once foreign and familiar with its uncomfortable resonance with the current political climate in India.” — The Quint.

➢➢ “Blumhouse Productions has made some of the best horror movies ever in the West. They have collaborated with India’s most creative production house, Phantom Films, for  … a terrifyingly scary series. The first episode is a little tiresome to sit through, but if you do make it past that, it is a fun ride.” — Bollywood Life.

➢➢ “Blum has two Academy Award nominations under his belt, one each for Whiplash and the recent Get OutGhoul is similar to Get Out – and fellow Blumhouse hit The Purge – in many ways, in that it uses horror as a means to make meaningful social commentary about the world.” — Hindustan Times.

➢➢ “Ghoul isn’t likely to keep you up at night, with the show being more disturbing than scary. It stays away from the overused horror mechanic of jump scares and it won’t give you the chills when it does deploy them. Instead, it uses the claustrophobia and the grimness of its setting to fuel uneasiness.” — NDTV.
