The Ghoul (Guest Speaker)

April 9

As a detective, Chris, (Meeten) investigates a double murder, the case begins to indicate the best way to follow up leads is to go undercover as a patient seeking psychotherapy for depression. What follows is a sinister story where nothing and no one seems reliable and Chris begins to doubt himself. An intense psychological thriller, with a panoply of shady characters and an unsettling score that ramps up the tension, The Ghoul is a debut feature for Tunley and made on a tiny budget.  It’s also a fine example if indie filmmaking and London noir grabbing 4 stars from reviewers again and again.

 To make it a very special evening we have BAFTA-nominated producer of the film Jack Guttmann with us for Q&A.

‘Gareth Tunley’s terrific shoestring debut as writer and director […]creates a pleasingly perplexing enigma of a movie.’

Wendy Ide, The Observer
