Thank you so much, I’m glad you were interested in knowing a little more about Zé do Caixão.
It is difficult to suggest any of his films, because there are many. I think the film/movie that most impacted me was actually a short film: "ideology '. You can find it here:
“O Estranho Mundo de Zé do Caixão” from 1968. There are 3 stories.
The ‘Zé do Caixão’ is part of Brazilian folklore. He appeared on TV shows with huge nails. The film titles were scary: ‘at midnight I will take your soul’. There are many characteristics that made him a strange ‘creature’. Even the way of speaking. The influence he makes on children’s imagination is like the influence of the stories of witches, monsters, etc.
He started producing in the 1940s. Movies/fims can have that ‘rough’ aspect of Ed Wood, BUT I think that psychologically they are deep.
I believe that many characters linked to terror/horror have a cartoon percentage. I can quote ‘Elvira’ and even ‘King Diamond’ (which I love). I drew ‘Zé’ in the cartoon style by simple random stylistic choice, but I think I understand your comment.
