Ghoul – Official Trailer

When I heard that Netflix was releasing a new horror movie I went a little psycho (in the best possible way).

Then I learned it was called Ghoul I dared to think that maybe something wicked this way would come and touch me with some horror movie goodness.

Then I learned it was Indian–not Native American, who though underrepresented have some really good entries in the horror genre (Creepshow 2, Bone Tomahawk, etc)–but instead as in India the country (where apparently no movie is complete unless at some point someone is singing and dancing).

Now I’m probably generalizing more than a little bit though the thing is I’ve seen enough examples of it that I’m turned off by Indian-made horror films.

Which is a bit of a problem because at first glance it sounds like I’m asking for Indian movies to be the same as American ones, except in an Indian milleu and I’m not (not exactly, at any rate).

What I’m asking is less than a sanitized version of an American movie than an Indian one that touches upon the things that keep them up at night.

And hopefully don’t involve either dancing or singing.

And the Ghoul trailer? Not a dance to be seen.
