The loathsome undertaker Coffin Joe, obsessed with having a son, leaves a trail of dead bodies as he searches for a woman worthy of receiving his seed in Jose Mojica Marins's 1966 sequel to his runaway Brazilian hit At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul. The film is packed with creepy images?hands poking out of a fresh grave, tarantulas crawling on sleeping women, a large stone crushing a man with a sickening thud?yet the story unfolds so slowly and manipulatively that it fails even as camp. Especially bathetic is a ten-minute sequence in hell, a Dante-esque inferno that's about as terrifying as the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. 107 min.
