When a rogue priest (PAN’S LABYRINTH’s Álex Angulo) discovers the exact date The Antichrist will be born, he enlists a Death Metal record store clerk and a cheesy TV psychic for an urban spree of “gore, sacrilege and twisted humor” (San Francisco Examiner) to prevent the Apocalypse by summoning Satan himself. 

In between his debut ACCIÓN MUTANTE and his proudly depraved PERDITA DURANGO, writer/director Álex de la Iglesia (HBO’s “30 Coins”) delivered a “classic of modern Spanish cinema” (Screen Anarchy), winning six Goya Awards including Best Director. A 4K restoration from the original negative, supervised by the director himself!

“If Mel Brooks had directed THE OMEN, it may have come out like this.” ––Ron Wells, Film Threat
