I re-watched my Omen blu ray disc after renting the standard dvd of it to compare the 2.I realized quite quickly how good the blu ray transfer actually really was.And also the sound,Wow! I forgot to mention before how great the sound is.The only thing that i'm, angry about is the blu ray was missing one of my favorite special features called "omenism" which was included on the dvd version.Also they didn't include the alternate ending.Considering how much more room blu ray can hold I find it a bit careless and annoying they were left out.
When I first saw this film in theaters on June 6/ 2006 I remember anticipating it because I previously read the book and I have loved the original 1976 movie since I was a kid.I really liked the remake and saw it again the same week.I liked the modern updates and how it was faithful to the novel.I wasn't too crazy about Julia Stiles "as Kathy",I thought she was way too young for the part.But everyone else was well cast.The special effects were all realistic especially the be-heading.
Basically I have nothing negative to say about this movie.Of course Seeing it on June 6/06 was the best part.

The Film: 4/5

Modern horror movies are very different from films such as The Omen. Released 35 years ago, the movie wasn't gory and certainly wasn't a slasher movie. It relied on creating suspense and tension and was in the tradition of Hitchcock. The characters have proper motivations for their actions and we are shown what those motivations are. It justifies some of the difficult choices made by Robert Thorn (Peck) as he learns the truth about his son.

Director Richard Donner's next movie was Superman, but The Omen, was easily the biggest project of his career at that point. Peck's involvement proved to be a huge draw and the remainder of the cast was happy to join the project.

The story opens in Rome. Thorn is the American ambassador and his wife, Katherine (Remick), is giving birth in hospital. The doctors tell him that his baby has died, but offer him another baby who lost its mother during the birth. Thorn reluctantly accepts, but hides the fact from his wife. Thorn is made ambassador to Britain and the family relocates to London. Things seem normal until Damien is five years old, when his nanny commits suicide at his birthday party.

Father Brennan, a priest from Rome, pays Thorn a visit.

Verified Purchase
Smart and well-crafted supernatural horror film on par with "The Exorcist". A good example of this genre from the 70's and holds up well with the likes of "Rosemary's Baby" and similar movies. Good cinema.
