Tied In Blood Movie Review 351

Tied In Blood is a 2012 horror movie directed by Matthew Lawrence and starring Paul McEwan and  Kenneth G. Hodgson.

George Morris(Hodgson) returns to his isolated home after being away for a long time and finds his wife, son and daughter all dead. He thinks that it is because of a ghost that haunts the house. He calls in medium Robert Brandon(McEwan) to come up to the house and see what he can do about getting rid of the ghost. Robert is happy to do this and they go together. They reach the house and Robert tries to contact the victims.

George is impatient and Robert has to tell him to back off as he tries to communicate with the spirits in the house. Stuart, his son appears. He tells a story of a ghost that was in the house and how he saw it. He tells Robert that it killed the other two and how he killed himself to stop the ghost from haunting him. Robert is not buying this story so he calls George's daughter, Tamsin. She tells a different story. She says that the family was having money problems and that she and Stuart slept together. She tells of their relationship and she says that Stuart killed his mother, her and himself because she wanted to leave him. The mother finally comes through and she tells the entire story. She found out about Tamsin and Stuart sleeping together and she threatened to spilt them up, Stuart couldn't take that, so he and Tamsin killed her. Then, Stuart killed Tamsin when she wanted them to split up. He killed himself also. George is horrified. It emerges that he used to beat Stuart and that the mother never did anything to stop it. She feels guilty and she says that she will forgive her son and daughter if they appear. They do appear and all three ghosts hug and forgive. They move on, leaving all of their pain and guilt to George to deal with forever. Robert leaves too, having done his job.

This was an interesting movie. It was made on a very small budget, but I liked it. The story was a bit slow at the start, but it picked up as it went on. It wasn't the best movie I have ever seen, but for a very low budget movie, it was OK. I will give it a 4/10.

The Walking Dead, Season 5, Episode 8

Rick chases after the cop who hit Sasha and kills him brutally. The other officers decide that they will say that he was killed by walkers so there will not be a war between Dawn and her officers and Rick's group. dawn is beginning to lose her position as top dog and people are wondering if she should be in charge. One of the people who does not want her on top is pushed down an elevator shaft by Beth. Dawn is pleased, but Beth feels manipulated into doing it by Dawn.

Gabriel wanders around and gets himself into trouble when he encounters a group of walkers. The others at the church have to help him as he leads the walkers back to the church(moron!). They have to let him in and then escape through his little hiding place under the floorboards. They then lock he walkers inside the church. Abraham and the others arrive in the nick of time and they tell Maggie that they know where Beth is and they are going to get her.

Rick and his group meet up with Dawn and her crew and they agree to trade Beth and Carol for the officers. At the last minute, Dawn decides that she wants Noah too. They don't want to hand him over, but he tells them that he will go. Beth stabs Dawn in the shoulder with a scissors and in a reflex action,  Dawn shoots her in the head, killing her. Daryl shoots her in the head. The other officers tell them to go. They will not retaliate. Noah is free to go too.They leave, carrying the dead body of Beth. Maggie and the others arrive just in time to see Beth's dead body.. In an extra scene at the end of the show, Morgan is shown following a trail. He finds a map left by Rick and he realises that he is on the same track...

This was a great episode and the mid-season finale. I have to say that Beth was not one of my favourite characters, so when she died, it wasn't sad for me. I am looking forward to the next episode now...
