    • Synopsis
    • To many, this is legendary and iconic horror Director Mojica Marins' masterpiece. It was certainly his most controversial film. Proof is, it was never allowed to be shown in Brazil and was kept in a shelf at the Censorship Board for over 20 years.
      The film tells the story of a doctor conducting experiments with LSD. He injects the drug in four patients, only to analyze their reactions, experiments however go, horribly wrong.
