Guido Manuli "Incubus" (1985)

Born in 1939, originally based in Milan, Guido Manuli is inevitably linked to his partner Bruno Bozzetto with whom he collaborated in two of his masterpieces, Mr Rossi and Allegro Non Troppo. Michael Sporn has written about how Guido milks every situation for its gags. Incubus
is a case in point. Here a man living in a high rise block engages in various dark visions which are not real until, inevitably, he wakes up to discover his dreams are reality. I found the looped screaming a little tiresome to be frank but Manuli's wit and ingenuity are fresh and funny a quarter of a century since the short was made. Guido is thankfully still working, his series Acqua in Bocca being current and popular.

Didn't know he was still around at all. I'm more familiar with works like this than for the more accessible children's stuff he's otherwise done personally. I noticed he did this for DIC Entertainment 14 years back I didn't know about (of course I was already an adult and never had an interest in such videos).

I would say that, much like Michael Sporn's analysis of Guido Manuli, I feel he's the type of guy who likes to do his own thing if he's let off a leash. I think during the time he was with Bozzetto, he was kept on a leash as much as he could be trusted to help Bruno out with his work, but once he was let go, that's when his interest in life, religion and sex start to come out. A good example of this is a film called "Erection" in which an explosion of sexual activity brought on by penile obsessions leads to a rather abrupt conclusion with God flooding the planet again.

The music in Incubus by the way is rather impressive and it was apparently released some years before as a record by Baby Records in Italy. You can check it out in full here!
