Storyline

This is a fan-made tribute to Coffin Joe and the films of José Mojica Marins. Coffin Joe, an evil undertaker from Brazil, has spent years and killed many people in his quest to find the "superior woman" to bear his child. Now he has come to the United States, where he will try a new approach - his own reality TV dating show. But where Coffin Joe is concerned, the line between "reality" and nightmare is indistinguishable. Written by Raymond Castile

"You know, Zedo...you could try smiling once in awhile..."
8 March 2010 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

A TV reality show involving blind-dating singles introduces two new romantic hopefuls. The bachelorette is a peppy, perky, very modern sort of girl, and her blind-date bachelor is...heheh...Ze Do Caixao(that fun loathing, philosophical boogeyman immortalized in films by the iconic "Coffin Joe", still searching for that special superwoman who will have the mighty fortitude to bear his Godforsaken offspring). The interaction between these two during their date is priceless and will make any Coffin Joe fan fall over with uncontrollable, pants-wetting laughter(those unfamiliar with Ze Do Caixao will just draw a blank, but that's OK, because they don't matter much anyhow). This unlikely love connection goes expectedly off-course, and culminates in a gore-soaked finale...with little chance of a second date on the horizon.

I found this side-splitting short film by mere chance on Youtube, and my hat goes off to Raymond Castile. This fellow has done a remarkable job as director and actor. It must be stated that he looks a LOT like Coffin Joe, and he has the Ze character nailed. Castile's leading lady is also quite good as the "normal" American girl with a Kate Spade handbag-toting, mallrattish charisma which becomes so irritating that you'll be rooting for Ze to rip her eyes out with his slender, knifelike claws.

This one's a winner in my book...7/10
