The Asphyx (1972)

The Asphyx

Directed by Peter Newbrook

1972 • PG • English • 99 min.

A doctor becomes obsessed with gaining immortality by capturing the asphyx, a supernatural death entity. It’s kind of like Frankenstein-meets-Ghostbusters-meets-Flatliners set in Victorian times, and it’s also weirder and creepier than that description might imply.

Cast: Jane Lapotaire, Robert Stephens, Robert Powell, Ralph Arliss
