Shocking, well-made chiller is an undervalued tale of atrocious murder and evil forces.
Small town doctor tries to discover who, or what, is committing a series of violent sexual murders.
Incubus is a tight mystery, with some horrific murder sequences, that builds to an off-beat and eerie climatic twist. The murder scenes are intense and gory, so this isn't a film for the squeamish! The direction of John Hough, along with a bizarre music score, combine to create a dark atmosphere of dread that runs through out the film. It also carries a kind of Gothic vibe as well. Nice filming locations and some stylish camera work also highlight.
The cast isn't bad either. The great John Cassavetes does a solid performance as the new doctor in town. Also good are the performances of Kerrie Keane as the local reporter, Helen Hughes as the town historian, and Duncan McIntosh as a tormented psychic teen.
All around Incubus is a forgotten horror film that needs to be re-discovered and re-evaluated.
*** out of ****
