It's Exactly What I Expected - In a Good Way
4 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've read through these comments and it seems that most of them are from viewers who haven't seen Coffin Joe's previous movies or from those who aren't fans of his. I've been a Coffin Joe fan for many years, and this film was exactly what I was hoping it would be. Yes, it's hard to follow, certainly corny, vile and disgusting and not very well acted - but THAT'S what Coffin Joe movies are about. The first two films of this trilogy, "At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul" and "This Night I'll Possess Your Corpse" are shown in flashbacks here and help to show new viewers what Coffin Joe is about - evil, depravity and a total lack of remorse for who he is. The first two films of this trilogy were made with a very low budget and I was happy to see that given a larger budget for Embodiment of Evil, Jose Mojica Marrins did not stray far from the crude feel of his previous films.

Embodiment of Evil manages to include everything that Coffin Joe movies represent, from a supernatural element, nightmarish scenarios, extreme violence, plenty of crawly critters and long ego maniacal rants from Coffin Joe to cackling witches. To Me, it's perfect. This film is definitely NOT for the faint of heart and not everyone will enjoy it. But for Coffin Joe fans who dig a corny, poorly acted and totally gross film on a rainy Sunday - DEFINITELY SEE IT!!!
