Cast overview:
Carina Palmer ...
Fata Morgana ...


Johan (Carsten Frank) is a successful artist whose work is surreal and symbolic. One evening before returning home to his wife Rosa (Lina Romay), he encounters a woman (Fata Morgana) in a bar. The two knew each other in the past and she demands a meeting with him. We see in flashback the history Johan and the woman have - they were involved in a Sadomasochistic relationship twenty years ago before Johan achieved success. In fact it is revealed that the woman is the key to Johan's life now. We see that the woman made Johan make her a promise at the height of sexual torment. The deal is that in exchange for a successful life he would surrender his, at the time, unborn daughter to the woman. Johan's now adult daughter, Lucy (Carina Palmer)is unaware of the deal her father made. Johan's wife Rosa is terrified that the woman has now come to collect her daughter and Johan has to confront the woman, today, whether he likes it or not. Written by Mark_a_Wood <>

Incubus (2002)

1/2 (out of 4)

Jess Franco remakes his very own Lorna, The Exorcist with horrid results, which is the case with the recent Franco/One Shot productions. Twenty years earlier a father made a deal with an incubus that she gives his fame and wealth in return for his daughter on her 20th birthday. The original film is one of my favorite Euro Horrors but this thing here is just downright awful from the poor script to the poor acting to the horrid direction. Franco's "talents" can be debated but this recent stuff is just incredibly bad. I did give the film half a star due to the music score by Daniel White but this was just lifted from Franco's The Perverse Countess.
