1964 • Brazil • Directed by José Mojica Marins
Once seen, never forgotten! Zé do Caixão (Coffin Joe) makes his screen debut in José Mojica Marins’ At Midnight I’ll Take Your Soul, the first Brazilian-produced horror film.
Zé do Caixão is an undertaker in a small Brazilian town, searching for the perfect woman to bear him a superior child. Unable to conceive with his wife, he kills her and sets out to find someone else. Nothing and no-one will get in his way of his quest to propagate his bloodline and Zé’s only chance at immortality!
Writer, director and star José Mojica Marins made such an indelible impression as Zé do Caixão/Coffin Joe that their names became synonymous, defying military dictatorship and religious censorship to be embraced as Brazil’s national Boogeyman. Newly restored with a wealth of new and archival extras, it’s never looked better!
