Another bizarre classic from Jose Mojica Marins, 28 June 2007
Author: TheMarquisDeSuave from Worcester, MA

Jose Mojica Marins' films are never actually scary, but are among the most compelling bizarre horror films in history. Their dreamlike style and atmosphere make them reasonably unnerving. The impoverished production values simply add to the otherworldly feel. They're not horror films, but masterful bargain basement surrealism that effectively weirds the audience out. Marins is a completely original filmmaker with a singular vision and world view that endures him to his small but loyal cult following. "At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul" remains the most accessible and my personal favorite of the trilogy, but "This Night I'll Possess Your Corpse" is admittedly a more accomplished film ("Awakening of the Beast" is something else entirely, probably Marins' masterpiece but also his least accessible).

As I mentioned above, Marins is unique in the annals of horror history. He created the frightening villain Coffin Joe, both a bogeyman and a mouthpiece for Marins' philosophy. There's a lot of speeches in this film, but they're full of fascinating (if not exactly articulate or sympathetic) sub-Nietzsche world views. His films, as poorly produced as they can be, illustrate his vision. Also, he was a competent director and improved with this one (this moves at a much better pace than "At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul"). Particularly memorable is Coffin Joe's trip to hell, a psychedelic frenzy with as bizarre an image of the underworld as "Jigoku". Coffin Joe films are definitely not for all tastes, but those interested in the fringes of world cinema should at least give them a chance. They're not bad films, but good ones with some poor production values. (8/10)
