"The Day of the Beast"
Directed by Alex de la Iglesia
Part horror film, part
farce, and gruesomely over-the-top, The Day of the Beast is a movie
that is sure to be loved or hated with equal enthusiasm by different
viewers. Madrid priest Father Angel believes that the anti-Christ will
bring an apocalypse of evil to the world on Christmas Eve, so he sets out
with a slovenly heavy metal fan and the host of a sleazy TV
"reality" show to stop the forces of darkness. "A
blisteringly audacious, headlong non-stop thriller of unflagging
inventiveness" (Los Angeles Times). Winner of six Goya Awards,
including Best Direction and Special Effects. Spanish with English
subtitles. 99 minutes.
