Product Description

Product Description

When his wife Katherine's (Lee Remick) pregnancy ends in a stillbirth in a Rome hospital, U.S. diplomat Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck) adopts another baby, whose mother died. Damien thrives as a normal child until, at his fifth birthday party, his nanny mysteriously dies; Father Brennan also dies after warning Thorn that he has adopted Lucifer's son. Thorn's fears escalate when a photographer shows him pictures from Damien's party with marks suggesting how the nanny and Brennan would die. Thorn seeks out an exorcist who confirms Damien's identity and tells Thorn that the only solution is to kill his adopted son.

After The Exorcist sparked a lengthy trend of supernatural thrillers, this 1976 horror film scored a hit with critics and audiences for mixing gothic horror and mystery into its plot about a young boy suspected of being the personification of the anti-Christ. (No doubt it's a favorite of shock-rocker Marilyn Manson.) Directed by Richard Donner (best known for his Superman and Lethal Weapon films), The Omen gained a lot of credibility from the casting of Gregory Peck and Lee Remick as a distinguished American couple living in England, whose young son Damien bears "the mark of the beast." Mysterious deaths and unexplained incidents draw the attention of a photographer (David Warner), whose investigation leads to the young boy--and also to the photographer's shocking decapitation (in a scene that has since been inducted into the horror hall of fame). At a time when graphic gore had yet to dominate the horror genre, this film used its violence discreetly and to great effect, and the mood of dread and potential death is masterfully maintained. It's all a bit hokey, with a lot of biblical portent and sensational fury, but few would deny it's highly entertaining. Jerry Goldsmith's Oscar-winning score works wonders to enhance the movie's creepy atmosphere. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
This 2 dvd collector's edition of the Omen does justice to this classic 5 star film.

Video: The film is presented in 2:35 anamorphic widescreen. The print looks pristine and I have no complaints about picture quality.

Audio: There is an English 5.1 dolby surround track that sounds great. There are also English, Spanish, and French mono tracks. There are English and Spanish subtitles.

Extras: This 2 dvd collector's edition is loaded with goodies.

The first dvd contains two audio commentaries. One with Richard Donner and editor Stuart Baird. The other with Richard Donner and writer/director Brian Helgeland. Also included is the interesting 6 minute 'Curse or Coincidence' and the 17 minute 'Jerry Goldsmith Discusses The Omen Score'. A trailer rounds out the extras on the first dvd.

The second dvd starts off with a 2 minute introduction to the film by Richard Donner. Next up are 2 lengthy and informative documentaries. The 46 minute '666: The Omen Revealed' and the 1 hour 42 minute AMC documentary 'The Omen Legacy'. There is also the deleted dog attack scene with commentary by Richard Donner, a 20 minute featurette 'An Appreciation: Wes Craven on The Omen', a 15 minute 'Screenwriter's Notebook' interview and a photo gallery.

This is a must have for horror fans.

Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck) is an American Ambassador to Italy with a beautiful wife (Lee Remick), an adorable "adopted" son (the perfectly cast Harvey Stephens) and a life of privilege. His life is quickly turned upside down when he comes to the realization that his son, Damien Thorn, may be the antichrist as foretold in the book of Revelations. Judging by the events that unfold; a public suicide, unexplained animal attacks, repeated warnings from a demented priest, peculiar deaths that were foreshadowed by a photographer's camera lens etc, only confirm what is suspected- that innocent looking cherub is indeed the spawn of the Devil.

This effective, well constructed thriller has a pretty iconic reputation. It gave us, for better or for worse, a character that has become as famous as "The Exorcist's" Regan MacNeil. It also boasts an impressive cast of accomplished actors, Gregory Peck, Lee Remick, David Warner, Billie Whitelaw, and they do not disappoint. The film is mostly set in London, and its cloudy setting adds tremendous amount of atmosphere which is further enhanced by Jerry Goldsmith's haunting score. As expected of any film dealing with biblical prophecies, unholy characters etc there is a lot of religious talk and it is expertly handled by Richard Donner. Donner manages to squeeze every ounce of fear from his actors and the chilling and cleverly executed death sequences are as gruesome as they are original (I wonder if the "Final Destination" series got their ideas from this film). Although it's never as bloody as the films that were to follow in the 80's, watching a clean decapitation from a sheet of glass or the impalement of a holy man in front of a church's walls are enough to send chills up most spines.

Kathy Thorn (Lee Remick) really wanted a child. Unfortunately, she lost her baby during the delivery. Not to worry! She's unconscious and knows nothing of the stillbirth. Her husband Robert (Gregory Peck) has just been offered another child by a priest. Robert accepts the infant boy, never telling his wife that he's not hers. Big mistake! They name the kid Damien. Little Damien starts growing up, and weird things begin happening! His nanny hangs herself on his 5th birthday. A new, creepy nanny named Mrs. Baylock moves in, seemingly from out of nowhere. A strange priest starts following Robert, talking about crazy prophetic stuff. Damien goes berzerk at a church. The baboons at the zoo go berzerk after catching a mere glimpse of Damien. A rotweiler (aka: devil doggy) is brought in by Mrs. Baylock to guard Damien. Ah yes, typical family life! Meanwhile, Robert meets a photographer (David Warner) who has some odd pictures to show him. The two join forces to get to the bottom of Damien's true identity. This leads to unexplained deaths and bizarre coincidences. Just who is Damien's real daddy? Will anyone survive Damien's teen years?? A definite classic of evil dread...

1976's "The Omen" has always been my favorite horor film of all time. I found it more frightening than "Halloween", "Friday The Thirteenth" or even "The Excocist", simply because it does not frighten you with blood and gore (despite bloodshed every now and then). It is meant to frighten you with the plot, which, while fictional, seems disturbingly realistic.
"The Omen" stars Gregory Peck and Lee Remick as Robert and Kathy Thorn, wealthy political figures who have everything they want... except a child. When Kathy unknowingly gives birth to a stillborn baby, Robert quickly adopts another child in place of the real child, which Kathy apparently never finds out about. Young Damien seems like the perfect child, but strange mortalities soon arise when Damien turns five. First, his nanny hangs herself at his 5th birthday. Next, a priest who tries to watn Peck about his son's birth mother is impaled by a lightning rod. These strange deaths attract the attention of a photographer, ably played by the grossly underrated David Warner. Together, Warner and Peck go looking for Damien's real mother. A new nanny, played with fervor by Billie Whitelaw, comes along, knowing who Damien really is. Remick's character soon suffers a miscarriage, and she and the photographer both meet an untimely end. Peck receives seven daggers from an aging archeologist named Bugenhagen. Peck then realizes his son's true identity, building up to a terrifying closing sequence.
Overall, "The Omen" is a horror masterpiece. The acting is superb, Richard Donner directs exceellently and Jerry Goldsmith's score is breathtakingly scary (I'm still haunted by the music played in the opening credits). Extras include a making - of documentary and trailers.
