Not a horror movie, more of a Parody. It's corny but fun for what it is.
16 August 2017 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

Good intro. Starts out with enough oversexed camp that seems to favor that back in the day horror movie style. Let's me know the tone that I should expect, which I was not expecting cause I was expecting a horror movie trying to actually do horror (At least I'm hoping this movie is not trying to scare me cause it did not work).  Gives the essence that this is going to be a light horror film metaphorically poking fun of the concept of how those slasher movies of the 80s seem to be all about sexual frustration. It was arousing watching  Natasha Henstridge give us a tease as a woman who moves into a house with her husband that seems to be haunted by an incubus (AKA a male sex demon), and of course it possesses her husband than tries to bang everything in sight, except for his extremely hot wife. Give the movie credit for equality as they had scenes of erotic horror that's not focus on women. Not my cup of tea but respect for attempting the balance.

I personally don't see a horror movie here, it's mostly a parody of this, which is not to say it's bad, it's actually really great for what it is, but if you are expecting to be frighten or see some scary monsters that's not gonna happen, but the imagery is definitely really cool to see, and Henstridge is still hot.
