Dir. Peter Newbrook
Rating: [R16]

Topics: Period - 1800s.


Aroview: Promising 'Victorian' horror set around experiments by a scientist (Stephens) into capturing the 'asphyx' (soul) of a dying person and gaining a measure of immortality in the process. Has some genuine sparks of inspiration despite the generally hammy acting.
