Inkubus tells the story of a skeleton crew working the final shift at a soon to be demolished police station. The night takes a gruesome turn when the demon, Inkubus, calmly walks into the station holding the severed head of a murdered girl. Inkubus toys with the crew, allowing himself to be restrained, and begins to proudly confess to his litany of crimes, some dating back to the Middle Ages. Why? Inkubus has a score to settle with the one detective that almost put him away some thirteen years ago. To their dismay, the cops quickly become pawns in Inkubus' brutal crowning achievement of murder, gore, and mayhem. They ultimately realize it's his world, they only die in it. Written by
The setting is pretty terrifying thanks to solid directing and camera-work, but it serves as only a backdrop, overshadowed by a cornball story.
Robert Englund is absolutely awesome, but the performance (very believable for a demon) is totally wasted, surrounded by a horrendous supporting cast.
From the get-go, we're shown exactly how the A plot will unfold, and it's obvious that Inkubus is invincible. This adds up to a one-sided affair without a hint of suspense. Sadly, this means the only thing that could have improved this movie is more gore, and more deaths. The only route given is for the film to expand on a spooky back story, which it doesn't do satisfyingly.
Still, I'd actually recommend this for fans of Englund, or people who are interested in the demonic. There is entertainment value here... unfortunately it's all delivered under the guise of having a story. I would have much preferred to just watch Englund doing an 80 minute monologue as a demon.
