The Omen (1976) Review
Written by: BASSI
(May contain spoilers) The Omen is one of the greatest horror films to have come out in the 70's. It isn't gory, it is just plain frightening.
It's the 6th hour on the 6th day of the 6th month. Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck) has just found out his newborn son is dead. He can't let his wife Katherine (Lee Remick) knows though, since it would devastate her. But when a priest offers him another newborn whose mother died, all problems are solved, they name him Damien.....
The Omen is one of my favourite horror films. When I first saw it, it scared the living hell out of me. It sets the mood and sends a chill up your spine. The acting is outstanding (especially Billie Whitelaw as Mrs. Baylock). Gregory Peck and Lee Remick are, as usual, fantastic. Billie Whitelaw is pretty much flawless as the evil nanny and Harvey Stephens, although he doesn't say much, is very good as little Damien.
The last thing that makes the movie scary are some of the most bizarre deaths. The most known of them is a decapitation which is one of the scariest deaths in horror history and It a Must See!
