"At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul"
Directed by Jose Mojica Marins
This psycho-sexual gothic thriller from Brazil's horror auteur Jose Mojica
Marins represents the debut appearance of the evil protagonist Coffin Joe
(played by the director). He's a grave digger who torments the residents of
a small town. Coffin Joe is looking for a woman who will bear his child and
preserve his reign of terror. Marins' style blends genuine surrealism with
eerie classic horror elements and scenes of pure (sometimes rather sadistic)
exploitation. Several Coffin Joe sequels followed. Portuguese with
English subtitles. 81 minutes.
