Now this independent cinema

"When people yammer about indie cinema, they bring up directors who mostly work for studios. Jose Marins, on the other hand, is what true indie film should be. Self-financed, totally out of the mainstream, banned in his own country, his films are genuinely eccentric and an expression of his vision. Considering the constraints of how they're shot, and the amateur nature of his cast, Marins gets some excellent effects and prouduces genuinely disturbing scenes. What other director lets real spiders crawl over his cast? Worth it alone for the color scenes in hell, where people are imprisoned in rocks, have various body parts whipped, and are tormented by traditonal devils with pitchforks. If you've never seen Coffin Joe's films, this one is a good place to strart. Marins is a genuine surrealist horror director, along with other indie icon Jean Rollins. Both make films true to their oddball view of the world."
I Mean, Why Did You Buy It?

"Look, if you bought a Coffin Joe movie, you had to know what the hell it was all about and you have to like it just for the pure style involved.
Then, add the fact that you own a subtitled horror movie and you can impress the hell out of anybody. Or scare the hell out of anybody, and you have the purchase price refunded right there.
Great slices of film history, legendary until now, as they weren't exactly widely available on VHS, if they ever were on VHS.
I'm gonna say one harsh thing about Coffin Joe movies...probably one is enough to appreciate what's going on. I may buy all three if the prices drop, but not before then."
