This sequel to the ground-breaking Brazilian horror masterpiece, AT MIDNIGHT I’LL TAKE YOUR SOUL brings back the demented murderous caretaker, Coffin Joe (known as Zé do Caixão, and portrayed by director José Mojica Marins). Surviving the terrors of the first film, Coffin Joe is now joined by a hunchbacked assistant named Bruno to help him on his unholy quest for the perfect bride. After kidnapping and torturing women and submitting them to sadistic trials, Joe thinks he’s finally found the right woman to bear him a child. Unfortunately, things don t go as planned and Joe suffers horrible nightmares from killing a pregnant woman. What follows is a hallucinatory descent into the Hellish underworld as Joe struggles to survive his blasphemous visions and the wrath of the local villagers.
THIS NIGHT I’LL POSSESS YOUR CORPSE is even more brutal than its predecessor, and contains the controversial color Hell sequence.
This film is the second installment in the Coffin Joe Trilogy, and is followed by EMBODIMENT OF EVIL (which is also available from Synapse Films).
