A mind-boggling curiosity: the first--and, so far as we know, only--narrative film shot in Esperanto, featuring a pre-Trek Bill Shatner and cinematography by master lensman Conrad Hall (IN COLD BLOOD, COOL HAND LUKE). In this utterly bizarre low-budget horror film, Shatner's a regular guy

menaced by evil forces, Allyson Ames is the succubus who's warm for his form, and Milos Milos is the Incubus, an infernal spirit who seduces women for the devil. All dialog is in Esperanto (the failed "universal language" invented by 19th-century cultists), which the cast learned phonetically, in

hopes of giving the proceedings an eerie feeling. The results--sounding, according to "Variety," like Latin spoken in a Brooklyn classroom--reduced the premiere audience to helpless laughter. Inept, pretentious, and dull once the novelty wears off, but handsomely shot in Big Sur.
