Considered a "lost" film for many years, Leslie Stevens' unique and unforgettable Incubus has been rediscovered and resurrected some 30 years after it was first released. The film, which is notable for many reasons, was and is the only feature to be filmed entirely in the language of Esperanto. That alone should be worth the price of admission. But the Outer Limits-like mood, the magnificent cinematography by the legendary Conrad Hall, and the fact that William Shatner stars in it, also make Incubus worth watching. With this DVD release, hopefully a whole new audience will discover this film's rich surreal delights. Fox Lorber Films' disc should more than whet the appetite of the fans. The picture is subtitled in English (unfortunately non-removable), and, like the previously released videotape version, the subtitles take up a considerable amount of space in the frame. The reason for this is because the only known print of the film in existence came from a French source. The English subtitles had to be placed over the French ones. The disc includes two running commentary tracks, one with star Shatner and the other one with producer Anthony Taylor and cinematographers Conrad Hall and William Fraker. Shatner's commentary track is the weakest of the two, since the actor spends most of the time just describing what's on screen. The second track is far more interesting and offers up plenty of interesting production anecdotes and more. Also included on the disc is a nice lengthy video interview, conducted by horror writer David J. Schow, with Taylor, Hall, and Fraker. The disc also includes filmographies, a trailer, and more. A fantastic disc all the way.
