A very eerie movie at times, but still quite amusing at times. Some reporters wonder why director Marins does not believe in his own fictional character, Coffin Joe (alias Ze Do Caixao). After the interview he goes to visit his friend for christmas, and study some ideas for his new upcoming movie, "The Demon Exorcist". But there are some strange stuff going on in his friend's cabin. Tarantulas in christmas tree, people going berserk, and shouting some strange crap. We all know whats coming, because in the neightbourhood, in a wicked witch's wall, there's a picture of who else, than Coffin Joe! Don't miss the end, which is certainly NC-17 stuff, for both, the gore and the nudity. The musical score is eerie and chilling too.
