Solomon, a physics graduate arrives at a recently vacated house with three friends to set up a party. Even though they find a dead body that has been embalmed for decades Solomon refuses to accept there is anything supernatural in the house. He needs to believe if he wants to save the girl he loves from the ravenous blood spirit he has unknowingly set free…
“Blood Spirit is a pretty daft hour and fifteen minutes, where an awful lot of sitting about and chatting eventually leads to a narrative turning point that descends through layers of silliness involving mirrors, beyond the veil rituals and some very gothy makeup […] The cast do their best with a script that meanders all over the place and then piles on the mystery without concern that the plot’s actually bobbins.” Dark Eyes of London
