5.0 out of 5 stars Synapse bluray, 24 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Embodiment of Evil [Blu-ray] [2008] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
This film is an excellent conclusion to the Coffin Joe trilogy started by At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul and This Night I'll Possess Your Corpse.

It's a lot gorier and sexier than those films because they were made in the 1960s but this is 40 years on and censorship is more liberal. It has flashbacks to both films but mostly concentrates on Joe's release from prison into modern day Brazil and his quest to sire a son.

There are interesting counter culture points as well as commentary about how violent society is nowadays, but mostly this is a wallow in nudity, surrealism and mega gore. The special effects are out of this world and most of them are not CGI.

Synapse bluray is region free and therefore playable worldwide. It blows Anchor Bay UK's bluray away.

The picture is much sharper and brighter with natural grain but such detail its amazing. The sound is better too, and we get the same extras as the ABUK disc plus an extra featurette. Also this is a 2 disc set with a DVD version of the film.
