The filmmaker in question here is from BRAZIL and is called Jose Mojica
Marins. Since the late 1950s, he has made a series of extraordinary
horror/cult films (which are either adored or reviled) featuring the
character ZE DE CAIXAO [Coffin Joe]. PRobably his best film is A MEIA-NOITE
LEVAREI SUA ALMA [At Midnight I'll Take Away Your Soul, 1958). By the way,
there are subtitled video versions of his films in distribution in the US.
I know the tapes are available from Facets in Chicago.
So, and with a deep grin, we are really not dealing either with Asian trash
(!!) or with Macao!!!!!!
