The last thing you want to find out, as a new parent, is that your child is in fact, the antichrist. And that’s exactly the predicament that Greogry Peck finds himself in in this horror classic.


In Rome, Robert Thorn (Peck) is distraught at the news that his newborn baby has died. And what will he tell his wife, Katherine (Lee Remick), a woman who so desperately wanted a child of her own? A priest has a solution, one which has presented itself quite coincidentally. Another baby, whose mother died during childbirth, could be substituted – and Robert could just keep this switch a secret. This child would be named Damien, and a nightmarish series of events would ensue.


From lights that don’t turn on, to eerie photographs, to the odd behaviours of frenzied animals, The Omen is rich with forbidding details and impressive scare tactics, thanks to Richard Donner’s impeccable directing, and Jerry Goldsmith’s award winning, haunting score.


Although the hysteria surrounding The Exorcist had finally died down, there was still a popular anxiety about demonic possession at the time, and The Omen leapt in to exploit that anxiety to terrifying effect. (Jack Whiting)
