Inkubus Review


This movie tells the story of a skeleton crew working the final shift at a soon to be demolished police station...

Inkubus (2011) is an American low budget horror movie that I was curious to see because the title and cover image was attractive. First-time director, producer and writer of the story Glenn Ciano (Infected (2012), Homie Spumoni (2006), Loosies (2011)) failed at making this movie anything worth watching. The movie failed in every aspect, and the actors did a miserable job and did not help the film at all. The director did not have a chance to make this movie excel with the poor storyline, weak screenplay, miserable acting, poor cinematography and an awful dialog. There are so many things wrong with this film, but I think people wanted to see this movie because of the horror actors that are in it.

Inkubus revolves around Inkubus taking revenge on a police officer, finding a new host and causing havoc on people. A few cops are working the skeleton shift and are questioning a teenager in the murder of his girlfriend. It was their last night at the police station in Wood Haven, Rhode Island because the police station is scheduled to be demolished. A stranger walks into the prison holding his girlfriend’s severed head and allows himself to be arrested. He also confesses to his crimes dating back to the Middle Ages. The quiet night takes a devilish turn as Inkubus ( Robert Englund - Freddy vs. Jason (2003), A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989), Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991), A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)) started to torment people at the police station. Detective Gil Diamante ( William Forsythe - The Rock (1996), Once Upon a Time in America (1984), Raising Arizona (1987), The Devil’s Rejects (2005)) almost arrested Inkubus about thirteen years ago. Inkubus wants revenge on Diamante, and he also wishes to find a new host for his rebirth because he intends to live for another century.

The movie had an okay concept that could have excelled to something better, but it had too many blemishes to stay strong. I gave this movie a two because I like the concept and would love to see a remake of this film. I would recommend all horror fans to stay clear of this movie because it will be a disappointment and might make you view horror icons in a different way.
