After a car accident in the mountains of Montana, six friends - Jay-Jay, her brother Josh, Bug, Holly, Peter and Karen - decide to find a shelter to protect themselves against the cold night. With the exception of Karen, the other five friends break in a facility using a rope through the skylight, but the rope breaks and they become trapped in the laboratory. They find two scientists dead and another completely insane, and they realize that the team of scientists was conducting experiments with a serial-killer in coma. When each youngster sleeps, the Sleeper invades the dream turning his victim into a slayer. The survivors try to escape from the sleepwalkers and find an exit.

When telling the story about the Sleeper, it was said and shown that he had bitten his tongue when he was a child. At the end of the movie he is speaking without any problems, which is impossible without a tongue. The same things happens with Peter, who also bit off his tongue when he was possessed by the Sleeper. Later in the movie, when he is lying on the floor, dying, he speaks normally. See more »

User Reviews

On a scale of 1 to 10? It SUCKED
17 February 2007 | by jthomas-71See all my reviews

It's a standard premise--people get into an accident in the middle of nowhere, look around, discover something they should have left alone, and murder and mayhem ensure.

Done right, you get the likes of Alien or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

But when the formula is implemented by ten spastic monkeys banging away at some typewriters, the result is Incubus.

Make no mistake: There will be a special place in Hell reserved for all who had anything to do with this piece of trash being made. This movie had not a single redeeming feature about it--bad acting, bad direction, and I could have eaten ten horror scripts, thrown up, and pieced together a script based on how the different chunks of partially digested script landed on the floor, and it *still* would have been more coherent than this.

You have been duly warned.
