Coffin Joe: The Rising

(Working title)

In development

The first Coffin Joe movie in English

This project will bring to the international screens the idiosyncratic character Z do Caixo, known in the English speaking world as Coffin Joe, infamous undertaker created by the iconic Master of Brazilian Horror, Director Mojica Marins.

"Mojica Marins is regarded as one of the few auteurs of horror" Kamera Oculta. Director of over forty films during the 60's and 70's, Mojica was one of the most censored artists in Brazil. Known for one creation in particular: the character Z do Caixo an evil sadistically cruel torturer, characterized by his sartorial style trade mark: black cape, top hat and displaying the longer curling nails anyone has seen!

Z do Caixo is an unstoppable invocation of an evil ego run riot, preacher of the masses, and Anti Christ - notwithstanding feverishly afflicted by moral issues concerning the meaning of good and evil, a true poet of horror.

Seeking co producers in Canada and Spain.
