This is a clever, well made little movie. I cannot understand the negative comments by other reviewers. The criticisms of the acting and story are, for the most part, completely unwarranted in my opinion.
I was impressed by the fact that this is a character driven story, dealing with real people who have recognisable human personalities and lifestyles. It certainly made a refreshing change from zombies, vampires and cheapskate "found footage" atrocities.
Tied In Blood has a supernatural element of course, which is nicely set up and introduced in a gradual way. This is essential in keeping the story plausible.
Most of the cast are very good. Paul McEwan and Laura Donohue in particularly give standout performances. The only weak link in the cast is Alan Brent who looks as though he is reading his lines off a card. Fortunately he only makes one small appearance and something about him perfectly suggests the kind of sleazebag who would do or say anything to separate honest people from their money. This attitude makes his casting as McEwan's boss quite understandable.
The film is an entertaining story with a twist that I didn't see coming. I really enjoyed it and found it a welcome change from other b-movies.
