began a solo career and created his own label RE. Henceforth, he also
performs live in solo.
In 1963, Jose Mojica Marins formed the
legendary character Coffin Joe (Zé do Caixão) for the now legendary cult
classic At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul that he directed as well as
starred in. The film's blasphemous nature led to a storm of controversy
and criticism in his home country of Brazil. This film, the first in the
'Coffin Joe Trilogy' is considered Brazil's first horror film. Coffin
Joe was soon appearing in many films, tv shows, videos, and more. He was
known for his outrageously morbid personal appearance- long, curled
fingernails and a midnight black top hat. The bands White Zombie and
Necrophagia both sample Coffin Joe films, and the Brazilian band
Sepultura sings a song that refers to him on their Roots album. He
performed an infamous live 'blessing' of Sepultura during one of their
performances. Due to half a century working in the horror genre, Coffin
Joe is considered a living legend and a walking symbol of sacrilege,
perversion, evil, and violence, and his evil sinister persona has made
him into cult icon with an international following. Because Coffin Joe's films were so sacrilegious, he is a living profane
exhibit and we are extremely happy that he will be adding his skills to
