Brilliant Victorian scientist Sir Hugo Cunningham (Robert Stephens) has a morbid fascination with photographing the dead. But when his son’s death in a horrific boating accident is caught on film he discovers that a mysterious creature (called the Asphyx) appears at the point of death to consume the soul.

Sir Hugo theorises that if he can capture the Asphyx he can achieve immortality. Together with his soon to be son-in-law Giles (Robert Powell – Jesus of Nazareth) Sir Hugo embarks on a dangerous and all-consuming quest, to give his family eternal life. But as his obsession takes over, his experiments start to go wrong….

An unusual film seldom seen on TV

It's the tale of immortality with a twist. A good cast makes a far fetched theory seem almost plausible.
