British indie horror let down by terrible direction
I saw this on Amazon Prime under the title TAINTED LOVE - NIGHT OF THE INCUBUS. It's a cheaply-shot British horror film made in the home counties and with a wishy-washy storyline that doesn't really go anywhere. It's the kind of film content to get by on scenery-building and chit-chat instead of offering much in the way of concrete incident or storytelling.
The horror content comes from suggestion and some brief scenes featuring mysterious religious cult figures. The central lesbian relationship is long-winded and only one of the actresses makes an impression, the younger of the two. The bizarre supporting caricatures are uninteresting and the direction is quite awful with shaking camera-work ruining key scenes. This tries to be monumental but all it turns out to be is monumentally boring.
