Ghouls are evil spirits that haunt cemeteries or graveyards and preys on dead human flesh. They possess supernatural powers like shape-shifting, regeneration and paralyzing touch. Traditionally from Arabian mythology and folklore, they are said to be desert-dwelling demons that can lure unwary travellers into trap by tricky schemes. Also, they are sometimes regarded as a lesser being enthralled by a vampire.
Ghouls date back to pre-Islamic times, males among them are called Qutrub and the females are called Gulah. They inhabit places like graveyards, huge cemeteries, deserts, lonely dark alleys and caves.
