Storyline

This movie is basically a vehicle for recycling footage from the eccentric pantheon of Brazil's premier horror filmmaker Jose Mojica Marins, whose own persona often melds with that of his popular alter-ego "Coffin Joe". Clips are culled from the trademark surreal nightmare sequences favored by Marins in such films as Esta Noite Encarnarei No Teu Cadaver (Tonight I'll Be Incarnated in Your Corpse), Ritual dos Sadicos (Ritual of the Maniacs) and Exorcismo Negro (Black Exorcism). These grotesque, hallucinatory set pieces are depicted as the nightmares plaguing psychologist Dr. Hamilton, who is haunted by the character of Coffin Joe. In an effort to stop the dreams, Hamilton seeks the aid of Joe's creator (Marins, as himself), who tries to convince him that Joe is not an actual demon but a flamboyant character he intends to lampoon in his latest film.

A thin plot device allows Coffin Joe to edit together a kind of psychedelic collage using outtakes and recycled footage from earlier Coffin Joe classics. For fans only.
7 March 2004 | by InfofreakSee all my reviews

In 'Hallucinations Of A Deranged Mind' a psychiatrist (Jorge Peres) is being driven insane with hellish nightmares in which the sinister bogeyman Coffin Joe (Jose Mojica Marins) tries to steal his wife (Magna Miller) for the purpose of creating the perfect woman. His colleagues are so concerned they contact Marins, the creator of the Coffin Joe character, asking for his help, and he readily agrees. The movie mainly consists of outtakes and recycled footage from the earlier Coffin Joe movies including his masterpiece 'Awakening Of The Beast', which are then edited together into a kind of psychedelic collage. Newcomers to the weird and wonderful world of Coffin Joe (which is actually the anglicized name for Marins' Ze do Caixao character he debuted in 'At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul' forty years ago) will probably find 'Hallucinations...' tough going, but if you're already addicted to these extraordinary movies you'll find plenty to keep you amused/amazed. I once described Marins as being a bit like Jodorowsky on a Herschell Gordon Lewis budget, and that gives you some idea of how unique his work is. This is my sixth Coffin Joe experience and I'm now hooked for life!
