Incubus (2006)

1 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Lab Splats

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Anya Camilleri's horror film smashes together some interesting ideas with a bunch of tired, old ones. Unfortunately, many viewers may not even stick around long enough for the good ones to begin; the first half-hour of this blood-spattered spectacle runs through a worn groove. Tara Reid, along with five other twenty-something actors, plays a college student lost in the mountains. They find an abandoned laboratory and break in, little realizing that there's no way out. Inside, they find two dead bodies and a creepy guy hooked up to a bunch of cables in a glass case. If they fall asleep, the creep can enter their brains and turn them into homicidal maniacs. Sadly, to obtain this information, the characters are required to do several stupid, nonsensical things in a row. It's more frustrating than it is interesting. (Not to be confused with the 1965 Incubus starring William Shatner, nor the 1981 The Incubus starring John Cassavetes.)

DVD Details: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment's 2007 DVD comes with a bunch of trailers for this and other horror releases. This is the "unrated" version, which doesn't include anything terribly surprising.
