Hellish Flesh (1977) (original title: Inferno Carnal) is a Brazilian horror film by José Mojica Marins. Marins also plays the character of Dr. George Medeiros[1][2].


Dr. George Medeiros is a brilliant scientist who spends his nights doing experiments in his laboratory, and does not find time for beautiful wife Rachel. She falls in love with Oliver, the best friend of her husband, and soon after the two plan to kill George and inherit his fortune. When George is distracted in the laboratory, Raquel picks up a bottle marked "acid" and throws it on George's face, disfiguring it. As he recovers in the hospital, Raquel and Oliver spend all his money. After months in the hospital, Dr. George comes home seemingly with no hostility toward Rachel.
