Directed by José Mojica Marins, Encarnação do Demôni, or Embodiment of Evil, is a Brazilian horror film that focuses solely upon torture, nudity, fingernails, and conception.

After serving 40 years in prison, Coffin Joe (José Mojica Marins) is released, and now this horny psychopath immediately wants to begin continuing his bloodline. In order for him to do this, though, Coffin Joe needs women, so Bruno (Rui Rezende), Coffin Joe’s faithful servant, and four other sadistic followers begin kidnapping beautiful women and hauling them down to Coffin Joe’s creepy basement.

These kidnapped women are then introduced to Coffin Joe, whose “winning” features would be his piercing eyes, bristly beard, and six-inch grotesque fingernails. (Because he is such the looker, I am surprised he had to brainwash so many women.)

Look at those fingernails!

Look at those fingernails!

Dr. Hilda (Cléo De Páris), his first torture victim, allows Coffin Joe to cut off one of her butt cheeks, and afterwards, she eats it. Other torture victims were whipped, drowned in beetles, stowed in rotten pig carcasses, or covered in burning cheese and fed to rats.

Another gruesome instance happens when Coffin Joe, after scalping an innocent woman, pulls the loose skin over her eyes. His reasoning? He wanted to spare this woman from watching the terrible things that were taking place right in front of her.

And yes, Coffin Joe does fulfill his lifetime goal of conceiving a child. Not just one child, though. Nine women, bellies round, come to his funeral, and each woman looks absolutely pissed.

Overall, Encarnação do Demôni is a truly unsettling film filled with blood, breasts, and mayhem.
