Coffin Joe Now Playing!

This why you go to the movies.

The Strange World of Coffin Joe Festival starts tonight at the Cinefamily!

For list of films, times, and ephemeral info, look here.

There's echos of Universal Horror, Russ Meyer, Teen Romance comics, Mario Bava, and Lon Chaney in the air of these movies, but these heartfelt, almost home made gems, all written, produced, directed and starring Jose Mojica Marins, have a distinct bizarre energy and thematic point of view you will not see anywhere else. And what a way to see them, in 35mm prints flown in from Brazil, maybe the only prints of these films in existence.
Ay caramba indeed, my friends, aye caramba.

Well, I'll make the argument that as coffin Joe is an amalgamation of many cultures and ideas, my post was done in the se spirit!

In my ignorance I only recently found out about Jose Marins. I just did a comic review of the UK DVD release of his work for Electric Sheep Mag. I was blow away by the films, wish I could see this screening, but I'm not sure my wife would be up for me traveling to USA just to go the flicks.
