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.
The Antichrist May Already Be Among Us
*The Omen SPOILERS*
Rome, June 6, 6:00 AM: American Ambassador Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck), after finding out that his wife Kathy (Lee Remick) gave birth to a stillborn child and doesn’t know it, accepts to adopt an orphan newborn boy, whose mother died while giving birth to him.
Everything goes well, until the boy, who has been called Damien (Harvey Stephens)’s fifth birthday party, when Damien’s nanny (Holly Palance) joyfully hangs herself in front of all the children there.
From then on, things begin to get weirder and more dangerous as more accidents happen around Damien, and a photographer, Keith Jennings (David Warner) finds out that the photos he took of the people who died have clues on it as to how the pictured person will die (e.g. a diagonal line extending from the nanny’s neck in a photo where she is tending to Damien).
Keith and Robert, who has also noticed the weirdnesses happening, investigate about Damien’s real mother and find out a shocking truth, one that the new babysitter Mrs. Baylock (Billie Whitelaw) is part of…
‘The Omen’, in my opinion, is one of the best satanic horror movies of all time; the actors are all in part, the script works perfectly, the music is scary as hell and the direction is top-notch, and it still holds up today, unlike ‘The Exorcist’ which looks pretty dated and has also lost its edge of terror.
It’s the first of a well-thought out trilogy, even if the second and third movies are pretty weak, and has had an unnecessary third sequel (Omen IV).
As it’s custom nowadays, this classic too has unnecessarily been remade, but there is no way it’s superior or even as good as this classic.
The Omen: 9/10.
