Today, Netflix debuts Ghoul, a three-part Indian horror series about a flesh-eating demon.

Set in a dystopian future, Ghoul involves a prisoner at a military detention center who turns the tables on his interrogators, exposing their most shameful secrets.

Ghoul, in English and Hindi, is based on Arabic folklore known as Jinn, about a shapeshifting demon. In this case, the demon eats flesh and can assume the image of the last person it conquered.

British filmmaker Patrick Graham wrote and directed the series.

Ghoul is a joint production of Blumhouse (Get Out, Insidious) and Phantom Films (Udta Punjab).
