Mexico may have its masked wrestlers and its Aztec mummies, but Brazil has its Coffin Joe, or Ze do Caixao. Coffin Joe is the alter ego of actor and director Jose Mojica Marins. Coffin Joe made his debut in 1963's At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul. Coffin Joe is evil, amoral, and obsessed with trying to find the "perfect" bride and he leaves a lot of corpses behind in his quest. He has been featured in film, television, songs, videos, and comic books.
Surprisingly, Coffin Joe is not featured in The Strange World of Coffin Joe. The movie instead is a compilation of three shorter exploitation films written and directed by Marins.
Hold on to your hat, this is going to be a wild ride!
