Hallucinations of a Deranged Mind (1978) (original title: Delírios de um Anormal) is a Brazilian horror film written and directed by José Mojica Marins. Marins plays a dual role in the film, portraying himself and the character of Coffin Joe.

The story is built around a montage of scenes that were omitted or censored from four of Marins' earlier films: Awakening of the Beast, This Night I'll Possess Your Corpse, The Bloody Exorcism of Coffin Joe and The Strange World of Coffin Joe. Marins filmed approximately 35 minutes of new scenes, also adding the characters to the plot[1][2].


Dr.Hamílton, a psychiatrist who is terrorized by nightmares in which Coffin Joe tries to steal his beautiful wife Tânia (Magna Miller). His colleagues decide to seek help with the assistance of filmmaker José Mojica Marins (appearing as himself), who tries to reassure Dr. Hamílton that Coffin Joe is merely a creation of his mind.
