109) At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul (1964)

109) At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul (1964) Dir: Jose Mojica Marins Date Released: ??? Date Seen: March 26, 2011 Rating: 4.25/5

Oh wow, love at first sight. That's right, I absolutely love Marins's supernatural angry young man routine (I generally identify with and take to that kind of self-indulgent petulance though). The theatricality of the film, its macabre sense of humor, Coffin Joe's deep-seated self-loathing and tweaked sense of ethics combined with Marins's bombastic performance and psychedelic images--ah, bliss.
