@Maillman Bob, Yes and long clips ( which is probably enough) of Incubus W/ Shat, also
  1:46pm kym:

Wasn't the Incubus film surrounded by a lot of tragic or early death? I seem to recall reading that the woman who played Shatner's sister died violently and possibly the woman who played the older female lead (or her daughter). And there was some sort of fatal love triangle involving the actor who played the Incubus. It was considered cursed.
