After serving a 40 year prison term, Coffin Joe is finally released. Back on the streets, the sadistic undertaker is set upon fulfilling the goal which sent him to jail in the first place: find a woman who can give him the perfect child. During his search throughout the city of São Paulo he leaves behind a trail of horror, coming up against supernatural laws and folk superstitions.
Embodiment of Evil is the third film of the Coffin Joe trilogy which began with the classic 'At Midnight I ll Take Your Soul' (1964) and 'This Night I ll Possess Your Corpse' (1967).

To fully understand this film I’d suggest you see “At midnight I’ll take your soul” and “This night I’ll posses your corpse”, both of which form the first two films in the Coffin Joe box set. This is recommended [but not essential] because the film makes numerous back references to these earlier films and can leave you at a loss to their relevance if you haven’t see them. The old footage has been revamped [pity they didn’t do that with the remaining 6 films in the box set] with a sharper picture and sound, but Coffin Joe hasn’t changed his ways at all, but the film content has. The action is much more sadistic in style, reminding one of ‘Hellraiser’ and ‘the Grudge’, but the style is unique, bordering on the edge of pornography [without the explicit sex]. Having said that, some of the earlier scenes have been edited to reduce the violence and satisfy ‘modern’ tastes.
The disc has limited features of a 30 minute ‘making of’ and the film trailer, other than that it’s 5.1 sound or 2.0 stereo with or without subtitles, but the English subtitles come on as a default [as the film is in Portuguese]. Not everyone’ cup of tea but it has more blood than ‘The Shinning’ and much of the violence is left to your imagination, but most is visible. Why only ****, because the story hasn’t developed from the originals.
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.
