husband/father of those murdered, turns to spiritist Robert Brandon (Paul

First off, let me state the
obvious: Of course this film is reminiscent of Rashomon
in pure structure, it doesn't take a genius (or a movie buff) to see this.
But that doesn't keep Tied in Blood from quite simply telling an
interesting story of its own, a story full of unexpected twists and turns,
and one that doesn't shy away from digging beneath its own surface. Add to
this a very competent cast and a directorial effort that puts more than a
little emphasis on atmosphere - and you've got a pretty good movie.
