Day of Wrath is a complex thriller film set during the infamous Spanish Inquisition. In the midst of a series of bloody and mysterious murders, Sheriff Ruy De Mendoza (Christopher Lambert) struggles to maintain order among the inhabitants of his village. It appears that nobody is safe- not even wealthy landowners. Each victim is found mutilated, with large letters carved into their flesh. Strangely, each corpse disappears shortly after it is discovered; even the crime scenes are fastidiously cleaned. The investigation is stymied by a bizarre wall of silence: nobody will even discuss the murders. Unable to pry any information out of the victims' families, the increasingly frustrated Mendoza must delve into the dangerous, terrible mysteries that lie carefully buried beneath the town's unassuming facade. Soon, the sheriff is embroiled in a horrifying conspiracy and has a hefty price on his head. Now, he must use all of his wits to protect himself and his beloved family.
