Unholy undertaker, evil philosopher, denizen of dreams and hallucinations...Coffin Joe, with his trademark top hat, black cape and long talon-like fingernails, is a horror icon in his native Brazil.

Awakening Of The Beast is a deliriously psychedelic nightmare about the rise of drug use and perversion among the youth of the nation. In a series of increasingly bizarre vignettes we see all manner of depravity, from a group of finger-sniffing hippies to a lecherous movie producer seducing a young starlet. Four drug addicts are chosen out of this group to take part in an LSD experiment. What follows is the closest thing to a real acid trip ever put on film - but are they under the influence of LSD or Coffin Joe? Banned by Brazil's military dictatorship for nearly 20 years, it is now considered by many to be Mojica's masterpiece.
