Fede Alvarez on

The Day of the Beast

Released 1998
Distributor Trimark Pictures

A typically skewed horror satire from Spanish director Álex de la Iglesia, again combining gonzo exploitation thrills with the sardonic social commentary of his countryman, Luis Buñuel. Starring Álex Angulo (Pan’s Labyrinth) as a stouthearted priest with a uniquely wacky strategy to vanquish the devil.
