After serving a 40-year prison term for the crimes he committed in At Midnight I’ll Take Your Soul and This Night I Will Possess Your Corpse, Coffin Joe is finally released from the mental health wing of the São Paulo State Penitentiary and back into society. The sadistic undertaker quickly returns to fulfilling the goal which sent him to jail in the first place: finding the perfect woman to continue his bloodline and bear him a son. Accompanied by his faithful servant, the humpbacked Bruno, Coffin Joe cuts a trail of horror with some happily devoting themselves to him, while many more are brutally tortured and murdered, while the police, with the help of a masochistic priest (Milhem Cortaz), dedicate themselves to bringing Joe to justice.
Embodiment of Evil, the final installment of the Coffin Joe trilogy begun over 40 years ago, delivers more of what Coffin Joe fans are used to: body torture, flesh-eating, and blood-soaked sex, though here he is also tormented by his crimes and victims. As the remnants of his questionable sanity unravel, we even follow Coffin Joe through a larger-than-life birth canal and out into his own personal version of hell.
