‘Inkubus’ movie in limited showingat Island Cinema

By Staff | Oct 26, 2011

Island Cinema is set to screen “Inkubus,” the new film from movie producer, Captiva property owner and part-time resident Chad Verdi.

Island Cinema will show the film for three nights only and all proceeds will go to benefit the Captiva Holiday Village.

According to Island Cinema owner Kim Bacik, Sanibel is one of only five locations across the United States that will show the film, a decision by Verdi to premier the film in communities where he has close personal ties.

According to the Internet movie database, “Inkubus” tells the story of a gruesome night at a soon-to-be-demolished police station.

The title character is played by Robert Englund of “Nightmare on Elm Street” fame. The film also stars Jonathan Silverman, former N’Sync member Joey Fatone and veteran character actor William Forsythe.

Bacik said the timing of the film’s release and the Halloween holiday made sense to pair the two together.

“We have our own Halloween horror night on Sanibel,” Bacik said.

Verdi produces and acts in the film, according to the Internet movie database.

“This is a big deal,” Bacik said. “This is opportunity to showcase him (Vardi) and he’s growing as a filmmaker.”

Since Island Cinemas is one of only five locations nationwide showing the film, Bacik is hoping it will attract people from around the county.

“This is the first time we’ve done anything like this and we’re hoping it draws some attention since we’re the only place in the county screening the movie,” she added.

The movie will be shown at 9 p.m., Saturday, Oct 29 through Monday, Oct 31 on Halloween. Tickets are $10, and all proceeds go to help the Captiva Holiday Village.
