Terrifying and eternal, The Omen is an immortal classic of the horror that overcame the fashion of horror movies with the supernatural theme/demonic of the 70’s in a great production. Telling the frightening story of an important politician who engages in a frantic journey after discovering that his adopted son is the antichrist, then humanity is in danger. The film has good performances from th... read more

A classic

After watching the remake which was terribly underwhelming, I was really eager to check the real thing. First of all, I was really surprised how little you see this ‘Devil’ during the whole movie when he is in fact the central character. Even though it was surprising, I was still able to understand this choice. Indeed, since you are dealing with a child, you can’t really risk that the audien... read more

"When the Jews return to Zion
And a comet rips the sky
And the Holy Roman Empire rises,
Then You and I must die.

Creating armies on either shore,
Turning man against his brother

Robert and Katherine Thorn seem to have it all. They are happily married and he is the US Ambassador to Great Britain, but they want more than to have children.

" One of the better "evil child" horror movies out there with a excellent cast and several surprising (for it's time) gory sequences. Seeing David Warner's decapitated head spinning around for an eternity is an image not to be forgotten. The story is also engaging about the eternal biblical struggle between Good and Evil. Jerry Goldsmith's epic "Requiem" music is also a must for the ears. "

The Omen

“Tale as old as time, the adopted son of an older American diplomat and his wife turns out to be the antichrist. It could honestly happen to just about anyone. The Omen is not some taunt, dread-filled masterpiece of horror. Too much of it plays out like kitsch, and some of it is just downright loopy in its overheated Catholicism and moral panic. Still, there’s some jewels of sustained horror, solid performances, and Jerry Goldsmith’s pulpy, overbearing score make The Omen more than worth the trip.   The Omen’s concept is at once audacious and steeped in the imagery and mythology of its Biblical inspiration/aspiration. Satan is here in the form of a toddler, and the entire narrative thrust is about the father possibly striking down the babe as if he’s Abraham binding Isaac. There” read more
