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.
