The Omen (1976) by David Seltzer

The Omen - David Seltzer

Novelization of the film, also written by Seltzer. On  its own, a semi-decent horror thriller about an American ambassador in London unwittingly raising the Anti-Christ, a young boy named Damien. Might have been better if written by a novelist, who could have given the dialogue more punch, the action scenes less of a cinematic flavor, and more depth to its religious themes. The popcorn version of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist.
