Trivia:
Just one year after this film came out, as its prints were being destroyed, William Shatner was cast in "Star Trek" (1966), cinematographer Conrad L. Hall got his first Academy Award nomination, actor Milos Milos murdered Carolyn Mitchell (estranged wife of Mickey Rooney) and then killed himself, and actress Ann Atmar committed suicide.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: As Marco chases Kia down to the beach, night changes to day and back again many times. One minute it's pitch black, then it's daylight shot through a filter, then it's twilight shot without lighting, then it's daylight without a filter at all. It goes back and forth like this for a long time. In one night scene the sun is actually visible.See more »
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
Author: TheMarquisDeSuave from Worcester, MA

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)
