The Films


"In Coffin Joe [Marins] has crafted a horror icon so full of sadism, immorality, and brutality that he would undoubtedly make even Jigsaw squirm and send Jason running home to Mommy." - Dread Central Unholy undertaker, sinful savant, denizen of dreams and hallucinations... a living legend amongst horror and gore fans across the world and the foremost Brazilian director of any genre, José Mojica Marins – better known to most as 'Coffin Joe' – remains one of the most unique and peerless directors in the world today. With his trademark top hat, black cape and talon-like fingernails, Coffin Joe is a horror icon in his own right. Whilst as a director, Marins has an unrelentingly original and outlandishly personal filmmaking style that can only be compared to a depraved blend of Mario Bava, Luis Buñuel and Russ Meyer.

Also included is the documentary film The Strange World Of Mojica Marins (2001) which won the special jury prize at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival. Each disc boasts digitally enhanced picture and sound, making this the definitive celebration of one of the most masterful and revered directors of our time. (Anchor Bay)
