Ghoul Review 2018 TV-Show Series Season Cast Crew Online
Stars: Manav Kaul, Radhika Apte, Rohit Pathak
Review: Overall this series was pretty good – good acting, good production values, the horror elements were done well. But sadly there wasn’t anything that took it to the next level or made it particularly notable. Here are my main issues with the film:
- Probably 90% of the cool scenes were shown in the netflix trailer. It hyped it up to be more intense than it was, which leads me to…
- This was too long, they should have either turned it into a full series and fleshed out the story-line, or left it as a normal length film. Despite being so long there was very little development in the story and as such they could have cut out quite a bit to focus moreso on the action and horror elements without negative impact.
- The setting is way too similar to Equilibrium and it didn’t particularly add anything to the story; it felt like they were trying to do 2 movies at once- one half is the exploration of dystopian society and the struggle people go through to deal with it. and the other is the possessed guru getting captured. Both potentially interesting ideas, but they don’t particularly fit together with what we’re given. Maybe if the series was longer they could have tied it all together more effectively. As such, I found myself largely disinterested in the dystopian stuff and was wanting them to hurry it along to get to the horror parts.
- They referenced Djinn in the very beginning (smokeless fire) and I was really hoping they would go hard into occult/mysticism territory but sadly they did not and it was a pretty generic possession story without much depth.
