It has already presented two acquired movies, Love Per Square Foot and Lust Stories, which were successful upon their release.

Again, Netflix has released its first-ever original series from India in hopes of tapping into one of the streaming service's largest potential markets. Blumhouse partnered with Indian production company Phantom Films, which was responsible for the controversial, yet well-received black comedy Udta Punjab; another notch in the show's belt that the trailer wastes no time in mentioning. The first trailer, in all honesty, is low on the chills but sets up the interesting premise very well. But despite there only being one out-and-out horror scene in the trailer, you can expect Ghoul to be an excellent experience. Radhika Apte, who also plays an important role in Sacred Games, is seen in the lead role in Ghoul as well. Taking place at a remote military facility, the Hindi horror series centers around an interrogation that takes a turn for the supernatural. But there is more in store for everyone at the base than they bargained for. Things take a darker turn when the criminal turns the table on all his interrogators, exposing their most shameful secrets. In the end, there is a shot of Radhika being attacked by a ghoulish figure.

Netflix's first original series from India, crime thriller "Sacred Games", debuted Friday to overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics. Co-producer Vikramaditya Motwane, Phantom Films, has said, "Ghoul is a first in class, edge-of-your-seat horror series - that we are incredibly proud of. We are extremely proud of Ghoul - and can not wait for audiences around the world to experience an elevated horror narrative from India".
