    I watched this late one night after choosing it from TCM's Comcast "On Demand" section. I had never heard of it before and didn't know anything about it (I recognized William Shatner, of course).I had no idea what language it was in - I heard some similarities to Latin languages, but one of the actresses sounded a little Scandinavian, and the environment looked kind of southern European or maybe South American, but I could tell that it wasn't Spanish - so I settled on maybe Portugese. :-)The movie was obviously low-budget, obscure, strange. With the black-and-white film, the young-looking Shatner, and possible influence from certain French films, I thought it might be from about 1959-1962 or so.After a while, the strange language and oddly-placed subtitles, the thin plot, the overacting, and the lengthy tromps back and forth to the sea made it pretty tedious and tiring, even though it's not a long movie, and I was glad when it was over, but I was also happy that I'd watched it. It was definitely different.I am glad it wasn't scarier or in any way realistic, because it might have wormed its way into my subconscious more, because there was something about it that stuck with me. In the three days since, I have thought about this at least once a day. Mainly, I wanted to remember to look it up online to see what the background of the film was. Yesterday there was a current news article about the 80-something William Shatner (some kind of argument between him and his butler and maid), and again I thought about this film.Tonight, I looked it up. I was surprised to find that the movie was filmed in the made-up language of Esperanto, in California, in 1966. It was not released in the US, there were several tragedies regarding some cast members, and the original print and all copies had been lost until one was found in France a few years ago. The cinematographer later won several Academy Awards. Strange film - worth watching 15 minutes of, anyway!

    About a year before William Shatner flew off into outer space on "Star Tek", he starred in this film about a man being pursued by Kia(Allyson Ames) a "succubus" or female demon, they should have renamed the movie, seeing that the incubus or male demon doesn't enter until about 45 minutes into the film. Anyway, Marc(Shatner) and his sister Arndis(Ann Atmar) living in the land of Nomen Tuum(Big Sur) are attacked by the incubus who was summoned by the succubus, see, it all fits. Spoken in Esperanto, some of the tanslations are loosely fitted to the story, otherwise we would all be rolling in the isles. if we understood it. Available with subtitles "Incubus" stands the test of time, in a peculiar way, it was created by some of the members of the Outer Limits crew, and it doesn't get much weirder than that. 1 esperanto star or is it espresso.
