Inkubus is a horror film produced by the Woodhaven Production Company, written by Carl Dupré, and directed by Glenn Ciano. The film stars Robert Englund, William Forsythe, Joey Fatone, Jonathan Silverman, Mike Cerrone, Tom Denucci, and Michelle Ray Smith.

Plot[edit]

'Inʞubus' tells the story of a skeleton crew working the final shift at a soon-to-be demolished police station in Wood Haven, Rhode Island. The night takes a gruesome turn when the demon, Inkubus (Robert Englund), calmly walks into the station holding the severed head of a murdered girl. Inkubus toys with the crew, allowing himself to be restrained, and begins to proudly confess to his litany of crimes, some dating back to the Middle Ages. Inkubus has a score to settle with the one detective (William Forsythe) that almost put him away some thirteen years ago. To their dismay, the cops quickly become pawns in Inkubus’ brutal crowning achievement of murder, gore, and mayhem.[1]
