5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly enjoyable, 26 May 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Day Of The Beast [VHS] [1996] (VHS Tape)
A priest is convinced, from his interpretation of the Book of Revelations, that the birth of the Antichrist is imminent, and he must set out to destroy him.
He enlists the aid of a credulous, burly, not-too-bright but essentially kind hearted fan of Satanistic heavy metal music. Together they forcibly coerce a disbelieving charlatan who presents an occult televsion show into helping them.
Like most other people in the film, the viewer is convinced that the priest is at best deluded, at worst a madman, until midway through the film, with a sudden dramatic turn, it becomes clear that this is all too real and the priest has been right all along.
The unlikely trio thus must set out to find and kill the newborn Antichrist, before the world is destroyed.
This film is not my usual sort of genre, but blows away most other horror films. Suspense is maintained right to the end. Suprisingly enjoyable.
