Movie synopsis
A staid American ambassador (Peck) and his wife are heartbroken when their child is stillborn, but their heartbreak is only beginning when they adopt an orphan. As the boy grows, disaster surrounds him, beginning with the suicide of his nanny, and as the bodies pile up, his horrified father begins to believe that the boy is evil incarnate and must be destroyed. The unique climax paved the way for two popular sequels, "Damien - Omen II" and "Final Conflict."

The Devil Made Him Do It!

Following the heels of the success of The Exorcist, The Omen tells the story of the son of Satan being born from a mysterious pregnancy and given to a U.S. ambassador and his wife in Italy. The couple raise the young child, but things begin to happen to the couple as the boy matures. A governess hangs herself. The child acts wildly when brought near a Church. A spooky governess appears from nowhere to take care of the child. A black evil dog takes up residence at the child's bedroom. To complicate matters, a priest gets in touch with the father and tells him to beware his son and that he is the spawn of evil.

The Omen works very well due to several factors. The script is generally well-written. The story is very implausable in some places, but it works on the whole. The use of powerhouse stars like Gregory Peck and Lee Remick in the leads help to give the film the royal treatment, making sure no one mistakes the budget, level of ability, and time put into this production. Peck is very good in his role as a man convinced(finally) of horrifying news. The rest of the cast does equally well with some fine performances by Billie Whitelaw as the crazed, manical governess, Patrick Troughton as the conscience-torn priest, David Warner as a helpful photographer, and Harvey Stephens as the young, sweet-yet evil looking Damien.

Most of the film's success can be attributed to director Richard Donner. Donner keeps the pacing of the film tight, uses some first-rate pan shots, and creates a mood and suspense that build climatically throughout the film. Some of the scenes that are most memorable include Damien on a tricycle, Peck and Warner in a cemetery, and most famous of all is the priest's demise. A wonderfully shot sequence. The music in the film is a great asset to the overall mood. A very good film....not nearly as gory or shocking as The Exorcist but still as powerful in its own right for its seemingly somewhat realistic adaptation of scripture.

Satan's Child Is A Little Angel

After having a stillborn child, Gregory Peck decides to switch infants in the hospital. Bad move. He has his hands full in this one. Wherever this child is, there is trouble, starting with the girl hanging herself. Everyone is telling him that this child is evil including his own wife who doesn't know that boy is not her true son, but he is torn wondering if the child is evil or if the bad things happening around him are a coincidence. Excellent acting and a very original story make this one of the best horror movies of all time that will still horrify 3 decades after it's release.

The Omen (DVD, 2006, 2-Disc Collector's Edition)

Gregory Peck is the ambassador to the United States who's wife has a stillborn child. Without her knowledge, he substitutes another baby as theirs. A few years go by, and then grisly deaths begin to happen. The child's nanny hangs herself and a priest is speared to death in a freak accident. It turns out the child is the son of Satan and can only be killed with the seven daggers of Meggado..

Great movie for the 70's.. been banned in a couple of states they refused to show a movie that had exercism in it...Oh well a overall great movie....

The Omen I DVD

Review For: The Omen (DVD, 2000, Special Edition)

The Omen is the first in a trilogy and is considered a classic film which is often misrepresented as a horror film. The director insists it's a drama. It actually has characteristics of both and is the most frightening film I've ever seen (along with The Omen II (the third film was a dud)). Starring Gregory Peck, this film avoids scaring the audience with the gore you'll get in most horror films. There is little blood, but still manages to be extremely scary. There is nothing I dislike about this dvd. It's a classic, and deserves that label.
