This Night I'll Pluck Your Mono-brow.
2 June 2015 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

This Night I'll Possess Your Corpse, the sequel to director José Mojica Marins' cult horror At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul (1963), sees the return of amoral, blasphemous gravedigger Zé do Caixão (José Mojica Marins), who, having recovered from his seemingly fatal supernatural ordeal in the first film, and having been absolved of all past crimes, returns to his village to continue his quest to find the perfect woman to bear him a son.

Aided by disfigured hunchback Bruno (Jose Lobo), Zé abducts six sexy women, whom he subjects to a horrific trial by spider (this scene is an arachnophobe's nightmare!) to determine their suitability as mates. Only one woman, Marcia (Nadia Freitas), passes the test, but—just a little upset by the fact that the other five women are subsequently killed—she refuses to make love to Zé. He surmises that she is not the superior specimen he believed her to be, but allows her to go free.

Eventually, despite his silly cape, stupid hat, obscenely long fingernails, AND a most magnificent mono-brow, Zé somehow wins the heart of local babe Laura (Tina Wohlers), who is only too willing to have his child. But things don't go smoothly for the twisted loon: he suffers from hellish nightmares after discovering that one of the women he killed was pregnant, goes even more crazy when Laura and his unborn son suddenly pop their clogs, and is captured and beaten by muscle-man Truncador (Antonio Fracari) and his pals, before being pursued by Laura's father and a bloodthirsty mob into a swamp, where he drowns.

Several exploitative scenes of sadism and gory violence, some gratuitous nudity, and an ambitious, surreal, multi-coloured nightmare sequence all go to make This Night I'll Possess Your Corpse marginally more enjoyable than the disappointing first movie, but overall it still proves something of a chore to sit through thanks to the fact that much of its 108 minute running time consists of Zé's interminably dull ranting about the nonexistence of God and his plans to create the perfect child.
