fantastic little ghost mystery
26 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Tied in Blood is a fantastic little ghost mystery. A decent script, strong direction, performances and an imaginative use of sound & music elevate it well above its somewhat modest budget.

Personally I think Tied in Blood is more of a slow burn psychological thriller than a horror film. Whilst there's a bit of gore and nudity thrown in there, these are secondary and used only to serve the story.

The story revolves around a medium called Robert who is hired by George; a desperate man who believes an evil spirit is responsible for the deaths of his family. Over the course of a turbulent evening Robert summons the spirits of George's family one by one and each gives a different account of what happened there. Robert must then piece together the clues to work out what has happened.

This kind of structure makes the film seem different and interesting as it's not something you see countless times in films, although it was used in an old Japanese film called Rashomon (which could well have been an influence for Tied in Blood).

I was surprised to see that this film got really poor reviews from a couple of users but don't let that put you off. It has faired pretty well with the critics, and the user reviews on Amazon (which is where I got my copy) are all really positive.

Tied in Blood may not be everyone's cup of tea but if you're a fan of indie cinema and you want something different and interesting then I'd definitely recommend checking it out.
