According to his calculations founded on a numerical transcription of the Apocalypse, the birth is going to take place somewhere in the Spanish capital on Christmas Day; however, time is running up, and the good father needs to pinpoint the exact birthplace. Without delay–although uncertain on how to get started–Father Berriartúa teams up with the enthusiastic Black Metal aficionado, José María, and the Italian TV show host and connoisseur of the occult, Professor Caván. Now, the once-pious man must become an unrelenting sinner to foil the arch-enemy’s plans. Is there still hope?
Plot: The story revolves around a Basque Roman Catholic priest dedicated to committing as many sins as possible (Angulo), a death metal salesman from Carabanchel (Segura), and the Italian host of a TV show on the occult (De Razza). These go on a literal “trip” through Christmas-time Madrid to hunt for and prevent the reincarnation of the Antichrist.

Instant Cult Classic!
On rare occasions, a movie appears that successfully mixes elements of comedy with those of horror without being silly, cheesy or vulgar. Alex De la Iglesia’s superb “El Día de la Bestia” is definitely one of those movies.
With an interesting plot, very likable characters, good SFX(considering the low budget) and a great cast, this formidable movie from Spain turns instantly in a cult classic by it’s own merits.
Alex Angulo stars as father Angel, a priest who is also a scholar of theology, and that has discovered that John’s revelation contains encoded the date and place for the birth of the Antichrist: Christmas Eve of 1995 in Madrid. With that knowledge, he decides to turn himself into a satanist in order to discover the exact place of the birth. With the aid of metal-head Jose Maria(played by Santiago Segura) and the fake psychic Professor Cavas(played superbly by Armando De Razza), he goes on his quest to kill the baby before the anti-Christ’s reign begins.
The story is filled with very dark humor as the priest has to sin in order for him to be convincing enough as a satanist. Alex Angulo really carries the film and gives a great performance, but is Armando De Razza who steals the show; Cavas and his girlfriend(played by beautiful Maria Grazia Cucinotta) have a great scene and Maria shines on her small role as the dumb blonde who dates Cavas.
De la Iglesia takes us on the roller-coaster that is this movie, as it never drags and goes on with a fast-paced rhythm. A great camera-work makes the film even better and the bizarre beauty of it’s photography, contrasting the colorful Christmas with the dark gritty violence of the streets of Madrid.
Overall a near-perfect film, “El Día de la Bestia” will keep you entertained with it’s irreverent(some would say blasphemous) dark humor.
10/10. Very recommended.
Alex de la Iglesia has always had a unique voice.
And what a hoot. A professor/priest has somehow missed everything about how the real world lives while in his ivory tower. While in there he discovers that the antichrist’s birth in imminent. Not only that but it will happen, “Right here in Madrid!” Imagine the surprise! Because his birth heralds the beginning of the end, the end of the world, this is huge.
