Why should people book it The Ghoul is a British Independent psychological thriller about madness, maths and magic. It’s about the dangers of belief, the potentials and perils of radical approaches to psychotherapy and the destructive power of love. It’s also a film about London. In The Ghoul, the English capital is a brooding, ever-changing presence in the story. TheGhoul is a vision of London as hell. The script shifts and warps from an investigation with occult undertones, into a character study before shifting gears again as Tom Meeten’s rogue cop / troubled loner undergoes a startling, mental and existential transformation. The Ghoul is an ensemble piece, the characters, all seen ‘through a glass darkly’, have multiple and often mysterious motivations. The film is directed by Gareth Tunley, executive produced by Ben Wheatley and stars Tom Meeten, Alice Lowe, Paul Kaye and Dan Skinner
