Re: Joe Bob's Last Drive-In41
Day Of The Beast - i don't know how i hadn't seen this before. it's an a spanish film with italian actors speaking spanish, about a priest who strives to do as much sinning as possible so he can get an audience with the devil in order to stop the birth of the antichrist. i don't know what genre this is. it's all over the place. at times it reminds me of a peter sellers style farce, at other times - as JBB said - it reminds me of buster keaton physical comedy. then some crazy over the top satan scenes that i won't spoil here in case you haven't seen it, followed by an ending that feels like grumpy old men. it's quite something to watch. there's also a death metal undercurrent. the guy who is the pancho to the priest's don quixote works at a record shop. you can see some morbid angel, cannibal corpse, napalm death albums in there. later at a show you can see some impaled nazarene, deicide, emperor, etc., shirts in the crowd. i really liked this movie, somehow. the tone changes work, somehow. it's satirical, engaging, and amusing. will be watching again.
