2 from Coffin Joe at Gary's

Hey everyone, for my January cult movie selections I've chosen 2 films featuring Coffin Joe, the twisted creation of visionary Brazilian writer/producer/star Jose'Mojica Marins. The films are "At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul" (1963), and "This Night I'll Possess Your Corpse" (1966). "At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul" was not only Coffin Joe's debut, it was also Brazil's first horror film. Coffin Joe is an evil undertaker who terrorizes a small religious community in his search for the perfect woman to bear him a child. This film has a truly unique vision that has been called an "unholy blend of Mario Bava, Luis Buruel, and Russ Meyer". Coffin Joe returns in "This Night I'll Possess Your Corpse", and he continues his quest for the perfect woman to bear his unholy seed. This time his campaign of terror is even more intense. At one point Coffin Joe is dragged to hell and the film changes from black and white to color, just like "The Wizard of Oz". I promise you, you've never seen anything like this. Feel free to bing a drink or a snack to share. We'll order some pizzas between the films. Hope to see you there!

    I learned a couple of things:
    1. Hell could use some Photoshop editing
    2. I know where Chippendales dancers go when they die

    I am the first to post a comment; this can only mean that my fellow attendees must be weak and inferior, HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!

    Seriously, it was great to get another chance to look at the cinematic stylings of the one and only Coffin Joe.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
