Soundtrack of a classic horror 1950s or 1960s movie

Hello, everybody!
I'm a film researcher from Brazil and I'd like to ask your help to identify an
excerpt from a soundtrack used in a Brazilian horror movie, directed by José
Mojica Marins, aka Coffin Joe.

This excerpt begins at 1:03:08 time and end at 1:04:01 (you can see and hear
from this link:
It sounds to me as a Hammer horror score, or perhaps a Toho giant monster

It's certain that is from late 1950s up to 1974, the that "Exorcismo Negro" was

Thank you all very much, I hope someone can identify this to me!

The horror business is a broad and polytheistic church: a rowdy congregation of
splatters, slashers, giallos, J-horrors and melts. The range of music available on
horror scores is similarly kaleidoscopic – funk, electro, EBM, folk, ambient and
weirdo electronics have all been used to revolt, unsettle, or scare the LDs out of
the unwitting viewer. Yes, you’re never too far away from a brooding analogue
synth, but the subculture of horror soundtracks is immensely rich and full of
surprises. You can see why people devote hundreds of hours – and thousands of
dollars – to hoarding (and, increasingly, reissuing) this stuff.
