    MFX Media sells and owns copyright on some of the Brazilian scat vids including the video "Cup" is extracted from.

    They don't sell bestiality videos, though. Plenty do, though.

    Coffin Joe makes his film debut in AT MIDNIGHT I'LL TAKE YOUR SOUL (A Meia-Noite Levarei Sua Alma), the first installment of the "Coffin Joe Trilogy."

    Coffin Joe (known as Ze do Caixao, and portrayed by director Jose Mojica Marins) is a mysterious undertaker in a small Brazilian town. He frowns upon religion and is bitter because his wife cannot bear him a child. After violently killing his wife with a venomous spider, the murder, mutilation and blasphemy escalates as Joe stops at nothing to find a new woman to continue his evil bloodline. The town's gypsy has a warning for Coffin Joe... the spirits of those he killed may return to claim his soul! Will Coffin Joe escape the wrath of the dead and finally get the child he's always wanted, or will unholy terror claim him for his hideous crimes?

    AT MIDNIGHT I'LL TAKE YOUR SOUL is celebrated as the first true horror film ever made in Brazil and is extremely graphic and frightening for its time. Startling, atmospheric and incredibly gruesome, this film is followed by THIS NIGHT I'LL POSSESS YOUR CORPSE and EMBODIMENT OF EVIL (all available from Synapse Films).

    This sequel to the ground-breaking Brazilian horror masterpiece, AT MIDNIGHT I'LL TAKE YOUR SOUL brings back the demented murderous caretaker, Coffin Joe (known as Ze do Caixao, and portrayed by director Jose Mojica Marins).

    Surviving the terrors of the first film, Coffin Joe is now joined by a hunchbacked assistant named Bruno to help him on his unholy quest for the perfect bride. After kidnapping and torturing women and submitting them to sadistic trials, Joe thinks he's finally found the right woman to bear him a child. Unfortunately, things don't go as planned and Joe suffers horrible nightmares from killing a pregnant woman. What follows is a hallucinatory descent into the Hellish underworld as Joe struggles to survive his blasphemous visions and the wrath of the local villagers.

    THIS NIGHT I'LL POSSESS YOUR CORPSE is even more brutal than its predecessor, and contains the controversial color Hell sequence. This film is the second installment in the Coffin Joe Trilogy, and is followed by EMBODIMENT OF EVIL (which isalso available from Synapse Films).

    Unholy undertaker, sinful savant, denizen of dreams and hallucinations... Coffin Joe, with his trademark top hat, black cape and long talon-like fingernails, is a horror legend across the world. Portrayed by prolific Brazilian director Jose Mojica Marins, Coffin Joe has been immortalized in films, TV programs, comic books and popular songs. Marins has a strangely personal filmmaking style that can only be compared to an unholy blend of Russ Meyer, Mario Bava and Luis Bunuel.

    Interesting that they're being presented full screen. The Fantoma discs were presented 1.66:1.

    If these are scanned from 35mm elements, why aren't they BluRay?

    I believe Synapse said that the masters they were given are not HD.

    They said that, and that the elements were in such bad shape that they wouldn't necessarily survive a new scan, and that the rights holder wouldn't let the elements leave the country and there apparently aren't any good facilities to use in Brazil to create new HD masters with. So these could very well wind up looking a lot like the transfers we've seen before, but Synapse's track record is good. Maybe the picture quality will trump the old Fantoma discs or the Brazilian set.

    The original Anchor Bay set had Awakening of the Beast as the third part of their Coffin Joe trilogy, while Synapse replaces it with Embodiment of Evil. Beast was a cheapie, but it had those awesome LSD effects. Haven't seen Embodiment. Any good?

    I just noticed your post. Embodiment is pretty goddamn good. Highly recommended if you liked the other Coffin Joe films.
