Santa Sangre 1989
Doctors at an asylum try to rehabilitate Fenix, a patient who is distant and uncommunicative. Fenix remembers back to his childhood growing up in a circus. His father was Orgo the circus owner and his mother Concha, a trapeze artist and priestess of the Santa Sangre church that was erected to the memory a young girl who was raped and had her arms cut off. Concha discovered Orgo with another woman and in anger threw acid in his crotch, only for him to respond by cutting her arms off with a knife, before slitting his own throat. Witnessing this drove Fenix insane and he was placed in the asylum. Concha now comes to the asylum to fetch Fenix. She makes him her partner in a mime act where he performs as her missing arms. Against his will, he "becomes her arms" and the two undertake a grisly campaign of murder and revenge.
