Tagline: Good morning. You are one day closer to the end of the world. You have been warned.
Plot: A staid American ambassador (Peck) and his wife are heartbroken when their child is stillborn, but their heartbreak is only beginning when they adopt an orphan. As the boy grows, disaster surrounds him, beginning with the suicide of his nanny, and as the bodies pile up, his horrified father begins to believe that the boy is evil incarnate and must be destroyed. The unique climax paved the way for the two popular sequels, "Damien - Omen II" and "Final Conflict." A fourth was intended, but as interest in the franchise declined, the project was scrapped. Academy Award Nominations: 2, including Best Original Song ("Ave Satani"). Academy Awards: Best Original

Okay flick isn't that bad, but is a bit too long in the tooth.
The Omen's relative shortcomings as a horror film are more than overcome by its story structure and characters. 70/100
--Jack Witzig (ColdSpot)
Despite the fact that this is a great movie, Michael Medved included it in his book "The 50 Worst Movies of All Time." Truth is, this film helped make big-budget horror films a possibility.
