The Ghouls (also known as Cannibal Dead: The Ghouls) is a 2003 independent American horror film that was written and directed by Chad Ferrin. Its main antagonists are the Arabian cryptids known as Ghouls.
The film, described as "a no-budget horror opus" and a "vicious cross between Paparazzi and Kolchak: The Night Stalker", was independently produced and shot guerrilla style in Los Angeles on Mini DV for $15,000.
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.
Connor Foster is the main star in this film.
The Ghouls won the 2003 "Sinners Award" at the Saints and Sinners Film Festival.
