It was reported yesterday that Netflix will launch its first Indian original horror series “Ghoul” on August 24th. The three episodes will be available to the service’s 125 million subscribers in 190 countries, including India. Now, we have a trailer to go along with the poster that looks pretty frightening.
Based on Arabic folklore, “Ghoul” is set in a covert detention center and follows an interrogator who arrives at the facility to discover that some of the terrorists held there are not of this world.
Written and directed by Patrick Graham (“Phir Se”,) and starring Radhika Apte (“Padman”) and Manav Kaul (“Tumhari Sulu”,) “Ghoul” is a co-production between Blumhouse Productions, Ivanhoe Pictures and India’s Phantom Films.
“’Ghoul’ is a thrilling horror series, both frightening and insightful. Its high production value, a chilling performance from Radhika Apte, and quality writing are sure to scare Indian and global audiences alike,” said Simran Sethi, director, Netflix International Originals.
