This short film recounts the process of restoring A PRAGA, directed by José Mojica Marins AKA Coffin Joe. Originally produced in 1980, the film was never finished and was ultimately lost. Full of twists and never-before-seen footage, “Mojica’s Last Curse” breaks down the only unreleased film by the Brazilian horror master known to date, through making-of excerpts, testimonials, scenes from the original filming and images from the comic book that originated it.
A PRAGA, 1980, José Mojica Marins, 52 Minutes, Heco Produções, Brazil
During a trip to the countryside, Marina and Juvenal stop to take photos in front of an strange elderly woman’s house. Angry, she reveals herself to be a witch and places a curse on Juvenal: a wound that constantly craves raw meat and needs to be fed in order to alleviate the pain.
