Petr Jakl has come a long way from his roots in Prague, Czechoslovakia. He started out with roles in foreign films in the late 1990s and early 2000s and quickly found a spot in Hollywood playing supporting characters in movies like xXx and AVP: Alien vs. Predator. Not content to stay in front of the camera, Jakl has now written and directed two of his own projects. The latest one, Ghoul, is hitting select theaters on March 20th.

I’ve been interested in Director Adam Wingard’s work since reading about his award-winning 2010 film A Horrible Way to Die.

When Lionsgate sent me a copy of that movie to review, I immediately devoured it and was floored by the great twists and turns I experienced along the way.
