Asphyx, The (Blu-ray)
Blending elements of Gothic horror with the more contemporary ingredients of steampunk, THE ASPHYX has emerged from obscurity to become a cult favourite of the sci-fi/fantasy genre. Utilising an experimental photographic device, a scientist (Robert Stephens) captures what appears to be the imageof the Asphyx - the ancient Greek spirit if the dead. With the help of his adopted son (Robert Powell), he conducts further experiments and conceives ofa way to harness the Asphyx and thereby gain immortality. But as every visionary scientist should know, defying the laws of nature and the spiritual worldunleashes dreadful consequences.
