Synopsis

At Midnight, I'll Take Your Soul
Brazilian horror auteur Jose Mojica Marins both directs and stars in this hallucinogenic chiller (aka A Meia-Noite Levarei Sua Alma), playing a sadistic village undertaker named "Coffin Joe" who strikes fear into the hearts of pious townspeople through rape, mutilation and murder. Obsessed with continuing his bloodline by siring a child with his "ideal" woman, Joe first takes steps to eliminate his wife (with the help of a venomous tarantula), then sets his lecherous sights on his friend's gypsy fiancee. The horrid crimes that follow bring down the wrath of a gypsy curse, which comes to pass during a village celebration on November 2 -- the Day of the Dead. This is widely regarded to be the first horror film produced in Brazil. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
