Time Out

It may tickle a type of hardened horror connoisseur, but most will want a shower after seeing it.

London Evening Standard

Much demented laughter and lavish screams of terror decorate José Mojica Marins's outré Brazilian horror.

Peter Bradshaw

For delirious offensiveness and imaginative grossout, this film deserves a congratulatory goblet of gore; and the surreal scenes of damnation have real chutzpah.

Parallax View

Imagine Aleister Crowley by way of the Marquis de Sade with a theatrical flamboyance, a voracious blasphemer in a Catholic culture...

With a script of pure gibberish stitching the pieces together, it's as though Ed Wood Jr, Clive Barker and Hieronymous Bosch had too much absinthe one night and decided to make a home movie.

Apparently a sequel to a couple of other films from the 60's (various clips are shown as flashbacks in the film which is weird because they're all in… More

Very weak and badly made, dispite of a few scary moments. Encarnacao do Demonio, is one of the worst of Mojica and Coffin Joe. Rotten.
Christopher Brown
God, I loves me some Coffin Joe. Ole CJ is back and still in search of a woman to birth him a superior child. Along the way we see a vision of Hell/Purgatory,… More
