It may tickle a type of hardened horror connoisseur, but most will want a shower after seeing it.

Imagine Aleister Crowley by way of the Marquis de Sade with a theatrical flamboyance, a voracious blasphemer in a Catholic culture...

Parallax View

Marins turns this final chapter in the character's quest for everlasting life into a Grand Guignol geek show, complete with shocking sequences of vivisection, cannibalism, and sexual sadism.

Much demented laughter and lavish screams of terror decorate José Mojica Marins's outré Brazilian horror.

London Evening Standard

Beginning in prison, ending in a fairground house of horror, and taking in torture chambers, slums and Purgatory on the way, this is the bad-taste trip of a lifetime.

Hardcore horror fans will no doubt be impressed, but the cultural justification for this level of hateful misogyny must be slim indeed.

Audience Reviews for Encarnação do Demônio (Devil's Reincarnation) (Embodiment of Evil)

Back in the 60s a younger 'Coffin Joe' killed and terrorized people. The cinematography of this is light years from the old black and white movies. A much older Coffin Joe is released from jail and spends no time recreating his pack. The movie is pretty gruesome, but the people they killed seamed to deserve it a bit more... some of them at least. The older Coffin Joe is a bit regretful now. No longer is everything so easy. He's haunted by the things he's done. This movie is pretty ADD. Sometimes Joe is sad and conflicted and haunted by his past, sometimes he's pretty happy to keep killing and moving on.

Very weak and badly made, dispite of a few scary moments. Encarnacao do Demonio, is one of the worst of Mojica and Coffin Joe. Rotten.

God, I loves me some Coffin Joe. Ole CJ is back and still in search of a woman to birth him a superior child. Along the way we see a vision of Hell/Purgatory, CJ's torture chamber and an insane priest/WWE wrestler. Awesome stuff.
