This long-lost cult classic stars William Shatner as Marc, a soldier of pure heart who becomes the target of a beautiful demon who wants his soul.
This black and white horror movie, filmed in California but with dialogue in Esperanto, is unlike anything you've ever seen. Incubus inverts the usual moral battle of a good person tempted by evil. When a headstrong, blond, young succubus named Kia (Allyson Ames) becomes bored with luring the corrupt and sinful to their ultimate demise, she decides she's going to tackle a truly good man (in the form of a very young William Shatner, of all people). An older, wiser succubus warns Kia that the good have an uncanny power called love, but Kia recklessly dives in, confident in her seductive powers--until she finds herself spiritually defiled by goodness and must summon an incubus (Milos Milos) to enact revenge. The pacing is slow but eerily effective, as are the stark cinematography and low-budget effects. Shatner's intonations are just as distinctive in Esperanto as in English, but that only adds to the movie's overall stylization. Incubus shares a kinship with Carnival of Souls, another low-budget black and white horror film that has more going on than buckets of gore. Though Incubus would seem to be heavily influenced by Ingmar Bergman, director Leslie Stevens has said he was more affected by Japanese samurai films. A strikingly unique and beautifully creepy film. --Bret Fetzer

It's a horror movie of sorts that includes supernatural beings known as incubi/succubi who go about invisibly killing people whose souls have been corrupted. William Shatner is the good guy with whom a young succubus falls in love. The story revolves around the succubus' sister trying to rescue her from the corruption of love and goodness.
The movie seems like a very long episode of the Twilight Zone or Outer Limits. There is no goriness about it. It relies on suspense and creativity.
Well worth a watch.
Mi achetis chi tiun DVD-on pro scivolemo, kaj volo posedi iun Esperantlingvan filmon por montri al amikoj kaj scivolemaj konatuloj. Mi ekposedis strangan, belfrenezan filmajhon.
Ne achetu chi tiun DVD-on se vi volas havi ekzemplajhon de prononcita Esperanto. Achetu ghin por posedi peceton de Esperanto-historio.
INCUBUS is a popular Esperanto-language film, which is often advertised as 'the first totally-Esperanto-language film.'
I bought this DVD because of curiosity, and the want to own some film in Esperanto to show to friends and curious acquaintances. I received a strange, beautifully crazy film.
Don't buy this DVD if you're wanting an example of spoken Esperanto. Buy it to have a little piece of Esperanto history.
