He was born at 6am on the 6th day of the 6th month. The coming of Armageddon, the site of the final confrontation between the forces of good and evil, as foretold in the Book of Revelations, will begin with the birth of the son of Satan - in human form.

Unable to tell his wife Katherine the tragic news of their still-born son, American diplomat Robert Thorn accepts a new-born orphan as his son. Details of the child's birth remain a secret, but as the boy Damien grows older, it becomes apparent that he is no ordinary child. As mysterious deaths and strange warnings occur, Robert Thorn slowly becomes aware of the hideous evil behind the child's innocent face and the significance of the numbers 666, which bring about the most terrifying of revelations.

Richard (Superman, Lethal Weapon 1-4) Donner Directs this faultless horror.
The subject matter might be a little silly and the film takes it's self ever so seriouse, but that's why the film works, because no matter how silly the story may gets the actors play it with absolute conviction, so we really do believe what is happening to the Thorn Family.
This is one of the greatest horror movies of the 70's and the music score from the great Jerry Goldsmith really does give the film an overbearing power.
A classic horror, that many may have tried to copy but few can compete.
Flawless!

Excellent movie, which really makes you want to believe in God!! Builds great suspense and keeps you on the edge of your seat til the very end.

 The Greatest

There are lots of horror films out there with lots more gore and blood than the Omen but none have the effect to make you think like the Omen does. Without doubt one of the greatest horror film ever made.

Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck) and Katherine Thorn (Lee Remick) were due to have a child when the unthinkable happened during the birth - the baby sadly died. When Robert realises that Katherine is not yet aware that their baby has passed away, he is persuaded by one of the priests at the hospital to switch the bodies with an orphan child who was born the same night but whose mother died during the birth. All is well until the child is slightly older - on one of his birthdays a tragic hanging marks the start of a journey into learning where Damien truly came from and who he truly is.

Unfortunately, I was not overly impressed with this film. I definitely expected more, considering all the rave reviews. I will give the actors credit - they acted extremely well and altogether the film was a very well thought out film regarding plot line.

However, this film is classified as a horror - I suppose its a tad creepy but thats as far as it goes. If you watched the most modern version of this film (which was ten times worse than this original) then you will have probably been expecting something extremely scary, naturally older but still along the same tone as the modern day film. WRONG. No bits that made you jump, and although Damien can look creepy, he's pretty much just a cute kid who ambles through the movie with all these bad things happening to him without him realising. He is not a very creepy or horrifying character in the slightest.

Average.
