Those of you with cable (a number I blissfully don’t count myself among) will have a lot to look forward to from IFC in the coming months. An article in Variety today reports that London-based One-Eyed Films has just sold a nine-picture package to IFC containing all the Coffin Joe movies!
If all goes well, 2009 just might be the Year of Coffin Joe. The Brazilian actor/director’s return to filmmaking, The Embodiment of Evil, will hopefully be hitting U.S. shores in some capacity, which means the man himself will be making more public appearances. But would you believe we’ll also be seeing Jose Mojica Marins ... animated?
There are few characters that engender the type of devotion fans feel toward Coffin Joe. But if you've seen his films, you know he's a unique individual whose badassedness is indisputable.
Nothing makes me happier than having a true icon in the genre return to form in a big way. José Mojica Marins' long awaited official third installment in his Coffin Joe trilogy has swept itself a casket full of awards!
Hungry for more news about Coffin Joe's return to the big screen? You should be. Co-writer of the new film, Dennison Ramalho, updated his official Embodiment of Evil blog with some some news from the film's first ever showing!
While it may not be the official Coffin Joe, star Raymond Castile has constructed a special fan-film for the evil mortician where Joe searches for the perfect mate via his own Reality TV dating show!
Could it be true? You bet your ass it is, and what do you care that it’s all in Spanish? The show will tentatively kick off on April 25th, and the producers have promised they’ll get the shows on YouTube as early as possible after their airdate. Check out two promos for it below!
It’s so cool to see that Coffin Joe finally has the chance to see his work get the respect it’s always deserved but the world was not quite ready to give it.
Jeff Buhler, screenwriter of the upcoming Clive Barker adaptation The Midnight Meat Train (trailer), just wrapped up work on his directorial debut, Insanitarium, which we last told you about back in April.
Seems like every corner of the world has their own film festival these days, so I really think one needs to be as picky as possible as to which the hit up. Sure, the climate doesn’t make a helluva lot of difference when you’re sitting in theater all day, but wouldn’t it just be so much cooler to be in, say, Rio de Janeiro watching movies?
The wicked Zé do Caixão, a.k.a. Coffin Joe started terrifying audiences in the 1964 classic At Midnight I Take Your Soul. That film and its sequel, 1967's This Night I Will Possess Your Corpse, are masterpieces of the macabre.
"What is life? It's the beginning of death! What is death? It's the end of life! What is existence? It's the circle of blood! What is blood? It's the meaning of existence!" That's some deep shit, man. The above rant comes courtesy of the evil Zé do Caixão, a.k.a. Coffin Joe, in the 1964 cl
When word broke that José Mojica Marins was planning on bringing the ever-so-evil Zé do Caixão (lovingly known to us as Coffin Joe) back to the big screen in the upcoming film The Embodiment of Evil, both myself and fans everywhere were ecstatic.
We’ve been keeping up on the triumphant return of Coffin Joe to film since the project was first announced, so I'm happy that we can let you guys know that production on the movie, The Embodiment of Evil, has officially wrapped!
Following up on the details we provided you with in our last story on the project, Fangoria found out from producer/writer Dennison Ramalho that the triumphant return of Coffin Joe to cinemas, The Embodiment of Evil, will be going in front of cameras on November 2nd with shooting scheduled to r
