Ghoul 2018 / A straightforward supernatural thriller with a sharp, timely message


Though relatively low on scares, this three-episode Indian miniseries fully believes in horror of a different kind: governments that indiscriminately call anybody terrorists if they try to think for themselves. Set almost entirely in a military interrogation facility, Ghoul wastes no time telling us who the real monsters are, never making the mistake of making the victims appear morally questionable. When the horror finally kicks in, it feels like satisfying karma—but always with a lingering reminder that a greater evil is still out there. So while its runtime may be perhaps too short, its promise of righteous revolution is something many people around the world just might need to hear.
