Here's a synopsis for Embodiment of Evil: "COFFIN JOE, the legendary maniac undertaker is released from prison after 30 years of incarceration. Infiltrating the close-knit gangs of the favelas in Sao Paolo he creates a quasi-religious cult intent on bringing a son and heir into the world to continue his evil master plan. His plans are thwarted when he makes an enemy of a powerful corrupt Colonel who teams up with the son of one Joe's victims, a parish priest. Together they fight to send Coffin Joe to eternal damnation, bringing about an apocalyptical ending to the evil man's reign."
