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
Most rituals showed in the films are real satanist rituals and weren't altered at all. 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 »
Well, it's fundamental. lt inspired me to see the Apocalypse not as an allegory but as an equation. Each letter has its own number. So, for example... Daleth is worth four, and Synn is worth three hundred, so we can...

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 »
Over a year ago I accidentally bought Day of the Beast off Ebay with no subs. Finally after a long wait I got the chance to check out this flick, and what a damn shame I wasn't more safe when buying it the first time, because this was a really good flick.
El Dia De La Bestia is a comedy/horror/action hybrid that really meshes on a level that few movies have. It's Xmas Eve and a Priest, Metalhead and a TV Host band together to try stop the Anti-Christ from being born. Sounds like the beginning of a joke, but it's the truth and these guys go through some ridiculous stuff trying to accomplish their goal. The acting, cinematography, directing and especially the screen play were all great. The writing was fast, realistic and smart, just like how the movie played out. Day of the Beast has barely has any dull scenes, it's funny, and moves at a pretty fast pace. I suppose it's not gonna be everyone's cup of tea, but hell, for me, there's nothing in it worth complaining about.
I really hope this film gets more popular, because it definitely has the opportunity to have a large fan base. Hopefully someday it will get some more recognition and you'll be seeing it in Best Buys and so on. And the best part is the director has many more flicks that are supposed to be just as good. If you're looking for a plain old good flick, look no further, Day of the Beast is it.
