15 cinema age rating  

A detective goes undercover as a psychotherapist’s patient to catch a suspected killer, and enters a mind-bending world where fantasy and reality are blurred.

Read the full synopsis

Full film details

Homicide detective Chris (Tom Meeten) is deployed to the scene of a mysterious double murder in the suburbs, which leads him to a man undergoing psychotherapy, who he firmly believes to be a suspect.

Deciding that the only way he can gain access to his psychological records is to pose as a patient himself, he goes undercover and begins visiting the elusive suspects’ psychotherapist. But he gets more than he bargained for when the therapy sessions lead him on a disorientating mind-trip, where nothing is as it seems.

With the tables turned, the only thing Chris can expect is the unexpected and he begins second-guessing every single shred of evidence to the point of obsession. Is Chris any closer to the truth or has he gone too far down the wrong rabbit hole?

The Ghoul marks an astonishing debut from writer/director Gareth Tunley, whose achievement has been heralded as remarkable considering its low-budget and tight filming schedule. The picture stars Tom Meeten (Paddington, The Mighty Boosh), Alice Lowe (Locke, Hot Fuzz) and Niamh Cusack (Hereafter, Testament of Youth).
