Trash Cult Tuesdays: Day of The Beast
Dir. Álex de la Iglesia
Rated R
Spanish with English subtitles

In between his debut Accione Mutante and his 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. A 4K restoration from the original negative, supervised by the director himself!

Content warning: This film includes challenging and/or triggering subject matter, including depictions of graphic violence.

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

“This second feature by naughty Spanish director Álex de la Iglesia turns out to be a splendidly blasphemous horror-comedy about nothing less than the birth of the Antichrist.” – Anne Billson, Daily Telegraph
