Storyline

Kia is a succubus, luring to their final perdition men who already have sinful habits and libertine inclinations. She tires of this, it's too easy, and these souls are going to Hell anyway. She wants to match wits and charm with someone who is good. So, against the advice of her sister Amael, Kia seeks out Marc, a man who has already faced death with courage. After a night together, Kia finds that not only is Marc's goodness still intact, but she has been ravaged by love. In anger, she and Amael conjure an incubus to deal with Marc. The incubus starts with Marc's sister, Arndis. Who will win the struggle for souls? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

According to Anthony M. Taylor on one of the DVD commentary tracks, the screenplay was written in English and translated to Esperanto. When the sole surviving French print of the film was remastered for release, English language subtitles were created based on the original English language screenplay, not from a translation of the spoken Esperanto dialogue back into English. This results in as strange situation for a foreign language film: discrepancies between the English language subtitles and the spoken dialogue are actually due to mistranslations from English to Esperanto, not vice versa, or else reflect late changes which were not back-ported to the original English language screenplay.

Quotes

Amael: I warn you, Kia, that quiet, modest man, who seeks no honors, no rewards, that gentle person who seeks only peace, that man is a hero!
Kia: He is a mortal man!
Amael: A great hero, Kia... great and good.
Kia: Then he has a soul worth fighting for! There are no heroes burning in the fires of Hell! No Martyrs and no Saints! Don't try to stop me, Amael.

Would be an unique experience even without the Esperanto
1 February 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

People's opinions are really divided on this one it seems. My opinion is that while its not a cult classic, its certainly a haunting experience. Its also unique for several reasons, not the least being its the only feature film filmed in Esperanto, the international language created to foster peace and understanding. And who personifies peace and understanding better than Captain Kirk himself you may ask? The fact this is one of the earliest starring roles of William Shatner, before "Star Trek", is another attraction. Past all these, this is still an interesting film. Its not completely successful (the pace is a bit too slow for many), but it achieves that sense of b-movie surrealism that "Carnival of Souls" and "Night Tide" had.

All around this is a well-made project. The acting ranges from decent to pretty lousy but its not distracting enough. The direction by Leslie Stevens is fine and subtle and has some truly eerie moments (and one all out shocker when the demons ravage Shatner's sister). The best aspect is by far the cinematography by Conrad Hall. "Incubus" looks wonderful and is seeped in shadows and absolutely perfect lighting. All of the angles are perfectly chosen and often very creative. "Incubus" would be an unique experience even without the Esperanto. (7/10)
