    Unrated British horror film.

    Cool movie where a group of scientists in Victorian England invent a machine which can capture the living spirits which escapes from people when they die. Fascinating concept, which looks interesting on film. The "Asphyx" creatures don't like being bottled up, and eventually create havoc. It's a great little movie done in a Hammer Horror style.
