It’s 2008 in Bogota, and Iron Maiden is about to play a show in the city for the first time, much to the delight of the surprisingly large Colombian metal scene. Dedicated metalheads Vargas and Chuki have waited three long years for this night, and it’s finally here. But just as the boys are getting ready to live out their much anticipated dream, they are mugged, and their tickets are stolen. Faced with the crisis of not being able to see their favorite band, Vargas and Chuki embark on a mission to get into the concert, encountering a multitude of obstacles along the way. While this will certainly be a night to remember, it isn’t for the reasons they thought it would be. A sweet balance of sincerity and hilarity, THE NIGHT OF THE BEAST is the metalhead coming-of-age film we didn’t know we needed. (In Spanish with subtitles) — G.S.
