This wasn’t as good as Richard Donner’s superb original, but it’s a solid sequel. It lacks the unique sense of despair and menace of one’s own child perhaps being the Antichrist, and the suspense is neither as taut nor as skillfully handled, but there are some great death scene set-pieces here, and it’s not as bad as horror fans would let you think it is. I have a special place in my heart for the religious thriller, so perhaps I’m a tad more lenient than I should be in my grading, but I could very well say that the devil made me do it, or at the very least, his spawn. Jerry Goldsmith does another fine soundtrack, albeit not with the two Oscar nominations and one win this time around, while William Holden and Lee Grant do a credible job of replacing stars Gregory Peck and Lee Remick, whom Damien had no qualms dispensing with in the first film. The original is essential viewing for anyone, while the first two sequels are fine fare for any contemporary cinematic (by that, I mean of films since 1970) horror or religious thriller aficionado.
Actually not half bad and kind of enjoyed this one a bit more than the first film. Still not great but had its moments, mainly seeing Damien come to realization of who he is and coming to accept it. **3.25/5**
An strong sequel is well acted and a few surprises.
Seven years later… Damien (Jonathan Scott-Taylor) is 12 years old is now living with his uncle Richard Thorn (William Holden), his wife (Lee Grant) and their son (Lucas Donat). When Damien has discover his high I.Q. and his origins. Damien is now using his evil power to get himself everything he needs to be powerful. He using his demonic powers, which he kills those people who anger him or in his way.
Directed by Don Taylor (Escape from the Planet of the Apes, The Final Countdown, The Island of Dr. Moreau “1977”) made an entertaining sequel to the original but less effective. Probably the most memorable moments in the sequel is the creative death sequences. The film had problems during filming, since Mike Hodges (Croupier, Flash Gordon, I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead) was the original director of the second film. Which he was fired during production for taking too much time with set-up shots and creative differences. Although some of Hodges’ scenes were kept in the final cut.
DVD has an sharp anamorphic Widescreen (2.35:1) transfer and an good-Dolby 2.0 Surround Sound. DVD has an interesting commentary track by the producer:Harvey Bernhard (The Beast Within, The Goonies, The Lost Boys) and moderated by DVD producer:J.M. Kenny. DVD also the original theatrical trailers and trailer for the first and third film. Although despite certain flaws, the second film is certainly well acted and it has another great score by the late Oscar-Winner:Jerry Goldsmith (Alien, Explorers, Total Recall). Screenplay by Stanley Mann (Conan The Destroyer, The Collector, Firestarter) and the original director:Hodges. Panavision. (****/*****).
All Time Classic!!
Some movies affect me in a way that defies rational judgment. I’ve seen some reviews here and elsewhere that bring up legitimate gripes, but I simply don’t care. I love this movie and that’s all that matters, it is high on my list of all-time favorites and I still often watch it once a year during winter, much like The Shining and other classics. The mood is appropriately foreboding throughout, and I’ve never seen another actor in my life that could so perfectly portray Damien as Jonathan Scott-Taylor—he was BORN to play Damien!! This is one of the first truly creepy movies I saw as a kid.
It’s fascinating to see the opulence in which Damien is raised and how he still feels empty in spite of it, knowing he is part of something bigger that hasn’t been revealed. This is especially well conveyed in the lake house scenes where everyone is happy for Damien’s brother’s birthday on what should have been an ideal vacation as enjoyed by a privileged class, yet Damien knows something is……wrong. He still feels only emptiness, loneliness. I also enjoyed the sense of sheer dread in the elevator scene and the cackling raven in the roadside scene.
You absolutely MUST watch the original Omen movie before this one, it is essential to the storyline and even better than this superior film. Unfortunately, Omen III totally dropped the ball and left a hideous black mark on the series. It’s a shame someone couldn’t have done a better job of completing the trilogy, perhaps someone will eventually….but not through excessive CGI, through mood and clever writing, as seen in the first two films.
Highly recommended! Make sure to watch The Omen first…
