Eric Hayes (Muskatell) makes his living as a news stringer finding gruesome atrocities and filming them to sell to the media. One night, he stumbles upon some ghouls devouring a young woman in an alley. After discovering that he didn't have any film in his camera, Hayes convinces his friend Clift (Haaga) to help him track down the ghouls again.


The film was independently produced and shot guerrilla style in Los Angeles[1] on Mini DV for $15,000.[2]

Connor Foster plays the protagonist.


The Ghouls has been described as "a no-budget horror opus"[1] and a "vicious cross between Paparazzi and Kolchak: The Night Stalker".[3]

The film won the 2003 "Sinners Award" at the Saints and Sinners Film Festival.[4]
