The main difference between ghouls and zombies is their appearance. Ghouls sometimes look like demons, but unlike demons that would like to get the spirits of people, ghouls would like to eat the flesh of humans.

Zombies are corpses that have come back to life because of different reasons. It may be because of a curse or because of magic. They also love to feast on the flesh of humans, although according to reports, their favorite part has to be the brain.

The first time that the ghoul was first introduced to the public is through Arabian folklore. Since then, people have already been confused with ghouls and zombies. Some even assume that they are the same.

Zombie and Ghoul are different. However, they are both fictional characters commonly used in literature and films. Both of them refer to flesh-eating creatures. A zombie is considered a deceased person who usually becomes reanimated to attack the living. Zombies have no form of intelligence as they are considered brain dead. Zombies are said to carry a contagious virus because when a zombie bites or scratch a person, that person automatically becomes a zombie.

Zombies do not speak or have the ability to control how they move as the virus destroys their brain. Ghoul, on the other hand, are monsters or sometimes referred to as spirits that live in the graveyard who consume human flesh. Unlike zombies, ghouls have thought, and they are intelligent. Ghouls are usually not human, or they are humans that have been transformed. Ghouls are created by black magic, and they are often possessed by demons. They are attracted to carcasses and dead things. They usually have a will of their own.
