    Thank you RL for another gem! Would love to see Hallucinations of a Deranged Mind on here if ever it becomes available : )

    I think the first 2 ‘Coffin Joe’ films (At Midnight I’ll Take Your Soul & This Night I’ll Possess Your Corpse) are José Mojica Marins best, but all of his films are fascinating. This is my third favorite and it’s really a quite subversive art film similar to Alejandro Jodorowsky in some segments. Not horror like the two mentioned, but the horror of war, drug abuse, and assorted fetishes are abundantly displayed. A sort of mondo pseudo-documentary that uses the format to exploit a wide range of subjects and society outside the norm. The first half of this is some of Marins’ most ambitious film making.
