At Midnight I'll Take your Soul

At Midnight I'll Take your Soul

Greetings Film Fiends and Deadites,

Besides my ongoing posts on 100 years of Horror movies, every Friday I will post a review of “another” horror movie usually a “blue” or cult movie.I’ll call it “Freaky Friday Film Review”. To start it off, I present “At Midnight I’ll Take Your Soul” (“À Meia-Noite Levarei Sua Alma”.) This 1963 film was Brazil’s first horror film and launched the career of the iconic film maker/actor  Jose Mojica Marins aka Coffin Joe. This was the first of the “Coffin Joe” trilogy films but this one set the stage as Marins plays the undertaker who abhors religion and is only concerned about the continuity of the blood. Discovering that his wife is unable to conceive children, he dispatches her in an unusually gruesome manner along with anyone else who gets in his way. Black and white and in subtitles, this movie is truly a work of genius! Marins actually went to prison for blasphemy for making his movies (talk about suffering for your art!). Be sure to check this film out along with his other two sequels. 5 out of 5 severed thumbs up!
