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...

April 1, 2011 | Full Review…

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.

August 28, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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

July 3, 2009 | Rating: 3/5

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.

July 3, 2009 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

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)


It is fun to see how it updates the trashy quality of Coffin Joe's previous films to modern times, but Marins is a terrible actor (what happened to the guy who used to dub him?) and the movie is a ridiculous mess that also exaggerates in its mindless scenes of violence against women.

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.
