Coffin Joe Video Guide


If you don't like Coffin Joe, leave this blog forever. I'm serious. No, not the 12-year-old emo asshole from The Horrors, I'm talking about the undisputed king of South American horror, Zé do Caixão. For my and the benefit of others, I've complied a list of DVD and VHS releases of his works. The list isn't definitive, and I'll be updating it as I find more releases, but I hope it gives fans a pointer at where to start the hunt. So after the jump, check out Coffin Joe's horrifying, chilling, and wonderful videography!

I was recently given a copy of At Midnight, I Take Your Soul. I haven't watched it yet but am looking forward to it.
