First up is José Mojica Marins' This Night I Will Possess Your Corpse-- a screening that should be of interest to cult and horror afficionados as well as to lovers of international cinema.
Part of the dizzying Coffin Joe series, the film features CJ dressed in black and sporting his signature 6 inch long fingernails. Already foiled in his quest to father the perfect child, Coffin Joe goes to demonic lengths to realize his dreams.

Richard Peña programmed the series and may well be on hand to introduce and chat about the film.
