Shocking, well-made chiller is an undervalued tale of atrocious murderand evil forces.Small town doctor tries to discover who, or what, is committing aseries of violent sexual murders.Incubus is a tight mystery, with some horrific murder sequences, thatbuilds to an off-beat and eerie climatic twist....
John Hough's horror films are a mixed bunch, but this one is far moreinteresting than its horrendous critical reception would suggest. It isostensibly a detective story of a small town policeman (John Cassavetes)investigating a series of unusually vicious rape homicides. Hough uses thestructure to ...
I picked up this one solely on the basis of its having John Cassavetes init. Yes, it is low-budget, but despite that -- or maybe because of it --the film is surprisingly effective. It's creepy. There's some gore buttheslicing & dicing is almost all off-camera. With the exception of one sceneabou...
I saw this movie about three years ago on a defective rental tape, and Imust say that I was shocked. I was shocked at how a film dealing withsupernatural rape and mutilation can be so...conventional! Yes, you read itright. When the screen isn't gushing blood at regular intervals, the movieis actuall...
A brutal rapist is on the loose in a small Wisconsin town,and Dr.SamCordell(John Cassavetes)suspects his daughter's boyfriend,until thehorrible truth is discovered-the rapes and killings are committed by amysterious demon."The Incubus" is an above average horror film that hasslick production values ...
Seriously, I can easily stomach a lot of on screen blood, gore andrepulsiveness, but what really makes this film disturbing &uncomfortable to watch is how the doctor character keeps on ramblingabout the physical damage done to raped women. He, John Cassavetes of"Rosemary's Baby", talks about rupture...
*SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT*My friend and I were out at a used video store when "The Incubus"caught my eye. There was a demon creature on the front of the video boxstaring at me with his little red beady eyes daring me to buy themovie. Next to the creature was his tag line: He is the Destroyer. "...
Horror is perhaps one of two genres where logic doesn't always win out overimagination. We all know that killers like Freddy, Jason, Michael and evenLeatherface shouldn't be able to sustain the amount of pain they do andstill live to fight another day. Most of us don't believe that zombiesreally r...
"Incubus" is one hell of a bizarre and trashy horror film. In fact,it's just bizarre and trashy enough to keep its viewers watching out ofsheer curiosity. It doesn't exactly have a strong story; it's based ona novel by Ray Russell, and perhaps something was lost in thetransition to film. The story i...
The movie to me is pretty good mostly cause i seen it when i was 14. soi show a lot of respect to movies i seen in my younger days. They keepwith the old 50's 60's theme "don't show the monster" . that seems tomake the movie move very slow. but to me the ending alone is worth theprice of admission(r...
There are many worse horror movies out there! Thank God most of themdon't get saddled with John Cassavettes in the cast. This film suffersfrom his underwhelming acting. From his expression alone you are neversure if he is appalled by the bizarre violence that continuesthroughout the film or is just ...
A young couple Mandy Pullman (Mitch Martin) and Roy Seeley (MattBirman) are relaxing on a beach in the small town of Galen. They decideto start playing practical jokes on each other. Mandy hides in an oldrun down cabin, she is attacked and raped by an unknown assailant. Roytries to help her after he...
To say that The Incubus is underrated is quite the understatement.Fromstart till finish (even with a somewhat flawed script) it keeps youinterested.There is a very good build up in suspense and it is gorywhen needed.Not everything is what it seems and there are a few redherrings thrown it to keep th...
After the success of 'Halloween' in 1978, the Horror genre became areally big deal in Hollywood. The fact that it was made for so littlemoney, but made so much inspired other upcoming filmmakers to maketheir own scary film. Of course, the consequence of this was a slew ofimitations, but not all of t...
~Spoiler~ 1981's The Incubus is a hard film to review. There were moments thatare tense and scary, and parts that are cheesy and dumbfounding (I loveBruce Dickenson, but that Samson video was lame, not to mention out ofplace). The film's plot follows several characters investigatinghorrendous rapes ...
In a small Wisconsin town a series of aggressive rapes and bloodymurders plague the community with the police authorities baffled to whoor what is responsible. The local, drained-out Dr. Cordell is calledupon to examine the bodies when they start to pile up. He is basicallya newcomer to the town, al...
I love horror and was looking for something to watch while the membersof my family-who do not love horror-were out for the afternoon. Since Ihad heard of this film and John Cassevettes was in it I thought it mustbe worth a look. Well, it is, but only because it's a 'good BAD movie'.In almost every s...
This is the worst film I have ever seen. I don't know what the crew wasthinking when they shot this, but I'm willing to bet they spent themajority of their time crying. The sound is poorly recorded. The videois grainy and dark, making it difficult to tell what's going on. Theactors (read: people who...
Based on Ray Russell's dark bestseller, this John (WATCHER IN THEWOODS) Hough-directed bust has little going for it.Though it does not lack gory violence, it lack narrative sensibilityand "characters".The "Incubus" of the title is a demon endowed with a mammoth penis thatshoots red sperm into vagina...
The supernatural has always been subject of personal interest."Incubus" is a very fascinating movie of all sorts. Here you got andfather and daughter who just moved into a small town, where gossip iscommon. A couple of young people are out having fun at a quarry, untilnighttime, where the woman deci...
When I created that list of titles for people to choose from, TheIncubus lay among them - a title I virtually knew nothing about. Thisalways excites me because you never know what you're going to get; aprize-winner or an utter failure. The film's director, John Hough, isthe same man responsible for ...
You know you're in trouble when John Cassavetes is operating at half-speedinstead of full-throttle in a movie, and "The Incubus" is a dreadful,worst-case scenario of a great actor going through the motions to pay thebills. Actually, observing the hammy script and John Hough's 'baroque' artdirection...
"The Incubus" is a mix of the good (an interesting murder mystery), thebad(a disconnected script, a sloppy resolution, badly made attack scenes) andthe weird (strong incestuous overtones, a strangely sleepy and stiffperformance by John Cassavetes - was that character really meant to be so"wacko"?)....
Years ago a movie going friend and I went to see a horror film that wethought would be good because it starred John Cassavetes. For theuninitiated, John Cassavettes was an actor, screen writer and director(married to actress Gena Rowlands), nominated for Oscars three times,who wrote and directed a v...
I rented this back in the 80's and honestly can't remember anythingspecific about the movie - only that it is THE worst movie I have everseen. This isn't one of those "it was so bad, it was funny". This isn'tone of those "it was so gory, it leaves you with a bad feeling" movies.It wasn't even one of...
