Coffin Joe (José Mojica Marins)
Back in 2001, we presented two of the most revered films by Brazilian director José Mojica Marins, At Midnight I will Take Your Soul(1964) and This Night I will Possess Your Corpse (1967) along with a documentary about his life and work.
Now, as reported by Twitch and DreadCentral, Mr. Marins is at it again. He will be making a direct sequel to This Night I will Possess Your Corpse and reprising his roll as Coffin Joe (Zé do Caixo in Portuguese). The film is called The Embodiment of Evil. With a budget higher than any previous Marins film, Embodiment will likely have a more polished sensibility, but I hope it retains all of the gritty, hand-made charm of the originals.
