A Gore Thriller by Francisco Cavalcanti and José Mojica Marins

"A Hora do Medo" is a gore thriller by Francisco Cavalcanti and José Mojica Marins. The original story directed by Francisco Cavalcanti had explicit sex and consequently problems with the censorship. Francisco Cavalcanti invited José Mojica "Coffin Joe" Marins to replace the pornographic sequences by violence and gore. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "A Hora do Medo" ("The Hour of the Fear")
