Blue Blood is a 1973 British horror film directed by Andrew Sinclair and starring Oliver Reed, Fiona Lewis and Derek Jacobi. It was based on the novel The Carry-Cot by Alexander Thynn. It was shot on location at Longleat House in Wiltshire.[1]


A debauched young aristocrat entrusts the running of his country house to Tom, the butler, on whom he depends absolutely. Before long the servant begins to dominate his master, to the alarm of the newly hired German nanny who senses sinister, demonic intent in Tom's control of the house.
