This 1991 made for television movie was certainly trying to capitalize on the popularity of the blockbuster 1976 film "The Omen" and the two sequels it spawned. It is not really a sequel. It tries to update the original story. Here, a young, married couple, Karen (Faye Grant) and Gene York (Michael Woods), who both happen to be well to do attorneys, are having a hard time conceiving. They go the adoption route, adopting a baby girl that they name Delia.
As Delia (Asia Vieira) grows up, she seems to have a number of issues. Animals are afraid of her. Those who succeed in annoying her seem to run into a spot of trouble. They even die, as does her Nanny, who ends up impaling herself after she falls from a second story window. Delia then gets a new nanny who looks out for her interests. Sounds familiar? You are right! it sounds an awful lot like the plot of "The Omen". It has other similarities. Here, her father may not be ambassador to another country, but he runs for public office and is elected. Delia is confident that her father, who dotes on her, will be President one day. Delia is the apple of her father's eye. It is her mother who comes to think that she is the Antichrist.
Unfortunately, the reality is that this film ends up being nothing like the original film upon which it is based. The plot becomes convoluted and ridiculous. In updating the story line, the writer brought in some new age gobbledegook that goes nowhere. The story, which starts out promisingly enough, degenerates into total absurdity and becomes unbelievable and downright laughable. Unlike the original, which was believable because of the subtlety that was employed through its straightforward presentation and deft direction, this film is anything but. Ham handedly directed and with a poor script with which to work, the actors cast never even had a chance.
Don't buy this film. If you are a fan of "The Omen" and are curious, rent it.
