Frankenstein (1910): Movie Synopsis

Frankenstein's creature stands over his collapsed creator

Young Frankenstein (no, not that one) goes off to university, leaving behind his lovely fiancee and her family. I support that move. You get your education, Frankenstein. You’re too young for that much responsibility.   Two years later, he has discovered the secret of life and death. They don’t make undergrads like they used to.  

The “Curse” of Incubus

Incubus (1966) was a commercial failure on a level that sounds made up. An independent movie that doesn’t get any distribution at all isn’t rare or strange, but an American independent movie that got distribution in one single market, France, is pretty special.   It can seem a bit strange that a legendarily cursed horror film couldn’t catch anyone’s attention.

Incubus (1966) Movie Synopsis

Incubus (1966) takes place on the spooky quiet island of Nomen Tuum (Latin for “your name,” and I’m still trying to figure out why). The sick come to the magic Deer Well to be healed and the vain come to be made more beautiful. The Deer Well is the perfect bait for corrupted souls, and temptingly lovely demons have full workdays luring bad’uns down to the beach for picturesque watery deaths.
