Spectacular follow-up to At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul!, 5 July 2006
Author: The_Void from Beverley Hills, England

As most people reading this will already know, This Night I Will Possess Your Corpse is Coffin Joe's follow-up to the excellent At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul, and as good as the first film was; for my money, this one is even better! The legendary Brazilian comic book character may be cheesy, and José Mojica Marins' films may be cheap and silly; but he certainly has an eye for horror and this film features everything that made the first film great - and more! Once again, we have a plot without meaning, although there is some direction this time as Coffin Joe steps up his chase to find a woman to bear him a child. He doesn't go the direct route, however - and we get treated to scenes of torture as well as Coffin Joe preaching to his audience about the non-existence of God. The film works in spite of the ending of the first film, which is passed off by way of Coffin Joe being nursed back to health by the people he terrorises, before being cleared of his crimes on the grounds of 'lack of evidence'...even though most of them were committed in front of a crowd of people. Still, it's all in good fun!

With a name like Coffin Joe, you've got to expect the man to have an eye for horror - and the director delights in packing his film with delicious horror imagery, from spiders and snakes to skulls and deformed assistants! The wayward plot once again allows the director to do pretty much anything he likes - and for a man with so many ideas, this certainly isn't a bad thing. Despite a running time of nearly two hours, Coffin Joe's film never becomes boring or trite, and just when you think that the film can't possibly deliver any more surprises; Marins throws in a delightful colour sequence that takes place in Hell! The dialogue is once again a stand-out aspect of the film, as hearing Coffin Joe preach his own set of beliefs never becomes boring and the actor clearly delights in delivering them. The eerie atmosphere is always welcome, and the fact that the film is so clearly designed for entertainment is of huge benefit to it. I'll close this review with a word of warning; do not see this film unless you've seen At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul, but once you have seen said movie - this one becomes must see!
