Prepare to enter the world of Coffin Joe! Unholy undertaker, evil philosopher, denizen of dreams and hallucination–Coffin Joe, with his trademark top hat, black cape and long talon-like finger nails, is a horror icon in his native Brazil. He is the creation of writer-director-star Jose Mojica Marins whose perversely original and strangely personal filmmaking style has been compared to an unholy blend of Mario Brava, Luis Bunuel and Russ Meyer. The film debut of Coffin Joe was also the first true horror film made in Brazil. Joe terrorizes a small religious community in his search for the perfect woman to bear a child. Frightening, atmospheric and startlingly graphic for it’s time. 35 year later, "At Midnight I’ll Take Your Soul" has become an international horror classic.
