Ángel de Andrés López,
In bustling downtown Madrid, a loud gunshot and two mysterious deaths trap a motley assortment of common urbanites in a decrepit central bar, while paranoia and suspicion force the terrified regulars to turn on each other.
After having unexpectedly deciphered the code behind Saint John's cryptic Book of Revelation, the dedicated Father Ángel Berriartúa determined to commit as many sins as possible with the intention to avert the birth of the beast, and with it, the end of the world, he heads to Madrid. 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 December 25th, however, it is already Christmas Eve and the good Father still needs to pinpoint the exact time and the birthplace while the clock is ticking. Without delay, though uncertain on how to get started and all alone in the big city, Father Berriartúa will soon team up with the enthusiastic and trustworthy José María, a Black Metal aficionado and owner of a record shop, and the esteemed Professor Caván, an Italian TV show host and connoisseur of the occult whose expertise on the subject is crucial. However, in this desperate quest to foil the ...Written by
Early in the film the priest hands a piece of paper to José María reading "-Napalm Dez -Iron Maiden -Hace de Cé". This is his way of pronouncing metal bands Napalm Death and AC/DC. See more »
The last scene takes place nine months after Christmas, but the flowers and trees in the park show that it's early spring. See more »

Jaime Blanch's, David Pinilla's, Antonio Dechent's and Ignacio Carreño's characters are listed as "Toyota". These characters were replaced in later drafts of the scripts as "assailants". In the movie, they are called "Limpia Madrid", but credits still call them "Toyota." This is because they drive a Toyota car. See more »
Alex de la Iglesia has got to be one of the coolest directors ever. I liked Accion Mutante but I LOVED Day of the beast. It is a shame this movie has not been played in america because it's one of the best movies in a long time. It's funny...very funny if you have a weird type of humor. It's not really bloody and gory like people have stated but some scenes have a shock value to them. Visually Day of the Beast is wonderful it's darkley filmed and has cool production designes. The actors for the most part do a good job only sometimes they go a little over the top. The only thing wrong is that this movie begins to run out of steam at the end and the ending is kinda confusing and when satan appears it's a let down. But all in all a cool movie and a good time.......if only our awards were like spain's
