This Night I’ll Possess Your Corpse
Esta Noite Encarnarei no teu Cadáver | José Mojica Marins, 1967
Brazil | Portuguese with English subtitles | 108 minutes

With live solo guitar accompaniment by composer Gary Lucas.

A cult figure for horror fans, Brazilian actor/director Jose Mojica Marins created in his “Zé do Caixão” (Coffin Joe) a terror icon that sprung from the margins of Brazilian culture with the power of a long-suppressed nightmare.  In this cult cinema classic, the second in the trilogy, Zé do Caixão continues his quest to father the perfect child, but his killing of a pregnant woman proves too much even for the demons that drive him.  Composer Gary Lucas's live score weaves in and out of the film and complements the original soundtrack.
