This second feature by naughty Spanish director Alex de la Iglesia turns out to be a splendidly blasphemous horror-comedy about nothing less than the birth of the Antichrist.

One key difference between the film industries in America and Spain: America would never honor a horror comedy with multiple Oscar wins, let alone nominations.
