Description

Director: Peter Newbrook

Description:

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 image

of the Asphyx – the ancient Greek spirit if the dead. With the help of his adopted son (Robert Powell), he conducts further experiments and conceives of

a way to harness the Asphyx and thereby gain immortality. But as every visionary scientist should know, defying the laws of nature and the spiritual world

unleashes dreadful consequences.
