Description: A Victorian scientist and his assistant discover the secret of death: everybody has a kind of personal "death spirit", the "asphyx"; when somebody is about to die, this "asphyx" comes in to claim his victim.

" A cool Gothic horror movie gem about a scientist trying to capture the death spirit just before dying. It is a cool concept that I like and feel is perfectly in tune with the belief people had in that era. A beautifully shot film with the great Sir Robert Stephens in the leading role together with a bunch of excellent British actors and actresses. It is really one of the last classic horror movies in the vein of Hammer and before the genre turned too violent and graphic. "
