Storyline

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.

Lina Romay Naked High Point Of Movie!!
24 July 2003 | by swnthomSee all my reviews

Let's face it. Jess Franco has not yet made a good movie. One would think, given his experience and the fact that he worked under Orson Welles and Jean-Luc Goddard, you'd think he could stumble once and make one but the fact is he hasn't. Franco, despite the cult that has arose around him, is a sleaze director, not a criticism mind you. However, In recent years, Franco has not even made a decent crap film. Ones like Mari- Cookie, Lust For Frankenstein, and Incubus and been pure waste of film stock, well almost. Gone is the atmosphere of Franco's 70's and 80's trash film and now it is replaced by totally incomprehensible story lines, which is a feat given they were never Franco's strong points, and digital camera work which makes his recent film look even sleazy, in a bad way! Incubus does not have all that much going for it. Save for Lina Romay, you'd rather all the other actresses keep their clothes on, which none do. The high point of the story is Ms. Romay totally naked arguing with her husband in the bedroom, which given the seemingly none existant storyline, may have been what this film was about. To prove a point, Franco's Ilsa movie had more of a plot than Incubus. Save your money and time. Leave this film alone.
