Day of the Beast

A FILM BY: Alex de la Iglesia
WRITTEN BY: Jorge Guerricaechevarría, Alex de la Iglesia
STARRING: Álex Angulo, Armando De Razza, Santiago Segura

The international smash that remains one of the best horror comedies of our time!  

In between his cult hit debut ACCIÓN MUTANTE and proudly depraved PERDITA DURANGO, writer/director Álex de la Iglesia (HBO’s “30 Coins”) delivered a “classic of modern Spanish cinema” (Screen Anarchy), winning six Goya Awards including Best Director! 

When a rogue priest (PAN’S LABYRINTH’s Álex Angulo) discovers the exact date The Antichrist will be born, he enlists a Death Metal record store clerk and a cheesy TV psychic for an urban spree of “gore, sacrilege and twisted humor” (San Francisco Examiner) to prevent the Apocalypse by summoning Satan himself.  Terele Pávez (800 BULLETS) co-stars A 4K restoration from the original negative, supervised by the director himself!

“If Mel Brooks had directed "The Omen", it may have come out like this.” -- Film Threat

“Has a lot of heart thanks to Álex Angulo's tremulous, sympathetic performance as the mild-mannered man of God who has to become a sinner overnight.” -- Kim Newman, Empire
