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
With Franco making a plethora of films in the new millennium on the digital stock that is flooding the market it is nice to see a bizarre film like INCUBUS leap from the director's fertile mind. a pleasure to have a film that you must watch, pay attention to and interpret what it means to you. Franco is the master of tangent film making. Lina Romay is still gorgeous after all these years and it's a pleasure to see such a lovely lady still gracing her lovers film. Sure, some of his recent work seems a bit...rushed, but INCUBUS is good stuff. It is time for all the Franco naysayers to just leave the man alone. If you don't like it, don't watch. No matter what you say the true Franco fans will be here to watch every frame that the madman genius of cinema creates.
