Omen,The (1976)
Movie Review by The Undertaker

Omen,The (1976) The 70's were definitely the decade of the devil. The Omen came out a few years after The Exorcist and proved to be nearly as scary and evil. These two films solidify the decades position as 'most evil', right? The Omen was the 1st film in a trilogy and ended up being by far the best. Luckily for us, the antichrist is born to walk to earth and rise to power. Poor old step dad is given the task of 1st believing this shit and second trying to stop it. It takes some convincing and a few horrible deaths, but by and by, he realizes his son Damien is here to bring hell on earth. Great acting highlights this film. Some very harsh deaths also highlight this film and some tend to take a few moments to unfold, giving you plenty of time to sit and dread what's coming. Damien really is a devilish looking lil brat and the casting here was perfect. The best part of this movie for me is the story and how it unfolds. It was really interesting to see a man wrestle with his beliefs and be slapped in the face by reality. How he deals with the truth about his son and the hard choices he must make are what make The Omen work. Of course, hell hounds, decapitations by glass, a killer box car, and a brutal hanging work well to make this film a classic also. I think that The Exorcist kinda overshadowed this film somewhat for a lot of people, but it really is very good and works on a somewhat different level. The Omen has a lot more action and a lot more death. The Omen had two much better sequels than The Exorcist did also. Still, both are great films and it's hard for me too choose between them, though I feel like The Exorcist was a bit scarier (just a tad). You gotta love these devil flicks and The Omen is one of the best.
