Movie Info

Tonight I'll Possess Your Corpse, episode two in the Coffin Joe trilogy, more or less reprises the story from the first installment. Zé Do Caixăo (José Mojica Marins) resumes his search for a bride who can bear him a child, in order to ensure himself a kind of immortality via future generations. His central criterion: to locate a woman "immune" to terror. Thus, with the help of cracked assistant Bruno, he begins to kidnap girls and exposes one after another to "fear tests," which involve planting tarantulas on their nude bodies and evaluating their responses. Subject after subject caves, until Zé meets Marcia (Nadia Freitas), who seems rather unfazed by the furry, multi-eyed critters. Yet Marcia does balk at Zé's habit of throwing his rejected betrotheds into a snake-filled pit to watch them die. Marcia's attitude induces Zé to break up with her -- he reasons that she isn't quite tough enough (and thus, not a suitable match), but he can let her go without worry, because he feels confident that, bound by love, she will never disclose the secrets of his macabre torture games. Subsequently, Zé and the gorgeous Laura (Tina Wohlers) become sexual partners -- they share a connection of atheism and a contempt for the supernatural. Zé impregnates Laura, but her health conditions demand that the couple choose between the life of the mother and the life of the baby. These developments are too much for Laura's parents and the rest of the villagers, who decide to put a nasty and brutal end to Zé. As Zé struggles to evade capture, the curse issued by one of his prior snake-pit victims (who promised to "possess" his body as she succumbed to death) fills the murderer's ears. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for This Night I'll Possess Your Corpse (Esta Noite Encarnarei no Teu Cadáver) (Tonight I Will Enter Your Corpse)

A criative, trash, gore and surrealist horror film, that proves Coffin Joe as one of the biggest killers of cinema history.

A direct sequel to At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul. This one is pretty decent, thanks to a bigger budget. It relies heavier on exploitation elements than the first film.

I think some of the bigger budget dollars went to supplying the director with hits of acid for the Hades sequence.

Films like this are the reason movies are made. Truly fantastic stuff here, and a brilliant example of how to make a tiny budget go a long, long way. Most of the Coffin Joe films range from mediocre to terrible, but this one and its immediate predecessor, At Midnight I'll Steal Your Soul, are lunatic masterpieces.
