5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish, funny, intelligent, dark and disturbing., 27 May 2002
This review is from: The Day Of The Beast [VHS] [1996] (VHS Tape)
This is one of the more imaginative Antichrist-is-born plots. From his mathematical analysis of the Book of Revelations a theologian is led to believe that the Antichrist will be born in Madrid on Christmas day and sets out to prevent this. His plan, such as it is, is to get Satan himself to tell him where the event will take place by pretending to be evil to which end he steals the wallet from a dying man, shoplifts and listens to extreme metal.

In a Madrid heavy metal record store he acquires an hilarious sidekick. Together they kidnap the charlatan host of an occult TV show and force him to perform a seance to divine the wherabouts of the Antichrist's birth. Up until this point you have believed that the priest is misguided and more than a little mad but in a delightful twist it turns out that he is entirely correct: the arrival of the Antichrist and the end of the world is imminent! Simply brilliant. Be warned, however, that the violence level is extremely high. The humour, which is rampant, is very un-PC as well.
