Synopsis

After more than twenty-five years of studies, Father Angel Berriatua comes to the conclusion that the Antichrist will be born in Madrid on December 25th,  1995. Once he arrives in the capital, and with the help of the pure-blood heavy metal aficionado Jose Mari, he gets in touch with Professor Cavan, the only person who can lead him to Satan. Sitges rediscovers Álex de la Iglesia's explosive, iconoclastic masterpiece in a fully restored copy.
