Bent on committing as many sins as possible to avert the birth of the beast, a Catholic priest teams up with a Black Metal aficionado and an Italian connoisseur of the occult. Now, he must become an unrelenting sinner. Is there still hope?
Determined to commit as many sins as possible after deciphering the code behind Saint John's cryptic Book of Revelation, the dedicated Catholic priest, Father Ángel Berriartúa, heads to Madrid to avert the birth of the beast and the end of the world. 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?Written by
Most rituals showed in the films are real satanist rituals and weren't altered at all. See more »
In lunch scene, the Priest meets with José María for second time, and calls him by his name. However, neither José María nor nobody told him José María's name. Last time he spoke about him before (with Mina), he said that he didn't know his name. 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 »
This film is Dark, Horrific and Comedic. It is also very visual and in the tradition of Evil Dead 2 and Re-Animator!
When you hear Spanish films, Aldomovar is always brought up. Unfortunately, films like Dia De La Bestia suffer. This film is a treat to people who like their comedy dark and have a weird sense of humour. The Apocalypse never looked more interesting than in this film. Visually the film is darkly lit and the appearance of Satan changes the whole mood of the film. Next time you see this film in a film festival, DON'T MISS IT!!!
