Brazilian cult director Jose Mojica Marins a/k/a Coffin Joe on Gary Lucas’ new live score for his 1967 film “Esta Noite Encarnerei no teu Cadaver”:
“Excelente! Fabuloso! Gary is a first class musician! I have always maintained that music is a totaly essential tool to horror films and in the case of this new score to my film ‘This Night I Will Possess Your Corpse’ , created so many years after the film was produced, Gary Lucas’s score penetrated the soul of the film, as Coffin Joe is empowered to penetrate Souls at Midnight. I definitively hope we can collaborate again!’’
