It has already presented two acquired movies, Love Per Square Foot and Lust Stories, which were successful upon their release. The first original Netflix series, Sacred Games, debuted to rave reviews on July 6. Ghoul is a reteam for Netflix and Anurag Kashyap's Phantom Films along with Ivanhoe and Jason Blum's Blumhouse.
He has founded Blumhouse off the back of some seriously profitable horror series, including Paranormal Activity, Sinister, Insidious, The Purge, Unfriended and more, but is also responsible for the likes of Get Out, Split, Whiplash, the documentary series The Jinx, brand new drama Sharp Objects, and the upcoming Halloween reboot. The first trailer, in all honesty, is low on the chills but sets up the interesting premise very well. The official synopsis of the series reads, "You can fight the demons of this world but what about the ones that aren't?" Taking place at a remote military facility, the Hindi horror series centers around an interrogation that takes a turn for the supernatural. In the trailer, we see Apte as an interrogator Nida who turns against her father and exposes him as an anti-government activist. But there is more in store for everyone at the base than they bargained for.
All three episodes Ghoul's first season drop on Netflix August 24. Co-producer Vikramaditya Motwane, Phantom Films, has said, "Ghoul is a first in class, edge-of-your-seat horror series - that we are incredibly proud of". This is our second collaboration with Netflix (after Sacred Games) and yet another strong example of commitment towards high quality content. "We are extremely proud of Ghoul - and can not wait for audiences around the world to experience an elevated horror narrative from India".
