Critic Reviews for The Incubus

All Critics (7)

[A] dreadful, mirthless film.

March 3, 2007 | Full Review…

it forces you to constantly wonder whether it's so disturbing because it was meant to be ... or if it because of ineptitude on the filmmaker's part.

underscored, underedited, and underacted

Audience Reviews for The Incubus

Feminist's worst nightmare. A series of brutal murders and raped have occurred in a small town. A young man is convinced that he's somehow committing these horrendous acts but something supernatural seems to be behind these murders and the town's past might contain a clue to find out the truth. It was quite an effective horror film if you ignore the bad acting. Hough was a great director who knew how to use gore well as well as using techniques from Argento to make this supernatural slasher spine chilling.

Ridiculously over directed, but not without some really nice moments. Cinematography was unusually rich and creative. The story is total rubbish, and everyone outside of Cassavetes is as well.
