Reviewed by: Jonathan MeltonRead Jonathan Melton's film review of The Ghoul
Considering it’s age and it’s former status as a lost film, The Ghoul looks great, with a really crisp picture and strong blacks. The mono track is functional without doing anything spectacular, which is all you can ask of a seventy year old film.
Horror experts Newman and Jones deliver a very informative commentary, covering everything from the frustrations of watching the Czech print - which for years was the only one available – to the possibility that one of the screenwriters doesn’t even exist. The pair clearly know and love the genre, and enjoy talking about it.
The stills gallery is a stills gallery (does anyone actually look at them). For some reason, there are no subtitles on the disc, which is fairly unforgivable for a new DVD.Reviewed on: 28 Mar 2009
