      Audience Member "Incubus"? A more descriptive title might be "Ingmar Bergman Meets The Outer Limits." Weird and enjoyable, although the Dominic Frontiere/Outer Limits rehash runs thin after a while. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Love everything about this. It is so odd and it goes to places these good/evil satan movies usually don't and that it's done in Esperanto, actually kind eerie/scary in places, the very distinctive harp etc music of the Outer Limits - and of course always Shatner! And the I am in love with this movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member The Esperanto and the B&W really add to the sense of "elseness." Shatner still sounds like shatner in any language. Interesting film. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Un proyecto que sin duda es interesante y que es toda una joya oculta para aquellos que somos seguidores del género del terror. Para empezar, como elementos positivos, contamos con algunas actuaciones bastante interesantes, a pesar del hecho de que se tuvo que grabar en Esperanto, y William Shatner demuestra sus tablas y que sin duda tendría que haber aparecido en muchas más cintas del género. La realización es más bien correcta aunque si es cierto que tenemos algunos planos sobrecogedores y que demuestran que tener un presupuesto pequeño no supone un problema para crear cine bello que provoca sensaciones. El uso del esperanto como idioma para la película es posiblemente lo mejor de la película. Aunque en un principio parece que es un simple "gimmick" para una película que cuenta una historia bastante pobre, lo cierto es que el idioma aporta cierta sensación de extrañeza que ayuda a toda la atmósfera.

D: Leslie Stevens. William Shatner, Allyson Ames, Milos Milos. A genuine curio if there ever was one: surprisingly eerie, effective horror story about pretty demon Ames who's intent of manipulating Shatner crumbles when she unwillingly falls in love. Lost for over 30 years . . . and remains only film in history to use spoken-language of Esperanza. Well-made, impressively shot by Conrad Hall (IN COLD BLOOD). Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Pre- Star Trek William Shatner speaking Esperanto is more than enough, but stunning black and white cinematography, a new twist on good and evil and a curse make this one of my all time favs. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Serge Daney Cahiers du Cinéma What remains is two films in one -- with none of Private Property's charms -- a parable and a horror film, both failures. Oct 4, 2023 Full Review Jeffrey M.

Thompson New Times It stars William Shatner, and it's in a made-up language. If you need to know more, this film is not for you.
