Incubus (1965)

Nomination Year: 2002
SYNOPSIS:  This is a European art movie disguised as a horror movie ("disguised" in the same sense that a water buffalo would be "disguised" with a false nose and glasses). Kia, the world's least alluring succubus, decides she's bored with taking the souls of the evil and wants to corrupt a man who's pure of heart. Her search leads her to Marc (William Shatner), a war veteran. He falls in love with her, and the question becomes: Who's corrupting whom? But when he takes her into a church, Kia decides this has gone too far and summons the Incubus to take revenge on him. Oh, and in case you don't understand the dialogue (less than usual, that is), it's because this is the only movie ever filmed entirely in the artificial language of Esperanto. Enjoy.
