    Ghoul (The) [BLU-RAY]




    The first British film ever to be labelled "horrific" (as well as being the first British horror with sound), The Ghoul is presented here for the first time in High Definition in a restoration from original film elements in its original aspect ratio. Starring Boris Karloff, Cedric Hardwicke and Ralph Richardson, this landmark film is a key title in any horror film collection.

    The Ghoul

    An eminent, dying Egyptologist has purchased a precious stone stolen from an Egyptian tomb which, he believes, will appease the ancient gods after his death if they are buried together. When the stone is stolen from his tomb, he returns as a ghoul – furious at the theft and hell-bent on wreaking revenge upon those responsible!

      Under rated masterpiece.

      I have been a fan of this film for many years and yet it still suffers from critics comparing it unfavorably to " THE OLD DARK HOUSE" . The reason I feel this film is superior are many. The sharp witty dialogue, the plot, the cast (both films have Karloff and Thesiger - though Karloff at least gets a better part in The Ghoul) and last but by no means least a magical score from Richard Vagner arranged by Louis Levey. This has thrills, chases and a great deal of understated British humour.
      Over looked (maybe due to it having only been re-discovered in the 60's after being regarded as a "lost film") it is well worth buying and you will find your enjoyment of the film increases.
