The Omen (1976), directed by Richard Donner

The Omen - J.M. Kenny, Charles Orme, Christopher Raimo, Harvey Bernhard, Mace Neufeld, David Seltzer

Solid horror film starring Gregory Peck and Lee Remick as the unfortunate parents of the Anti-Christ. With Patrick Troughton as a priest who tries to warn Peck and David Warner as a paparazzi who discovers dark premonitions in his photographs. Several of its horror scenes have become iconic, including a spectacular beheading. Weakened only by the lack of a clear antagonist: Damien, the boy, behaves mostly like any other five year old kid, leaving it to the Devil himself to work his evil from off-screeen. Greatly superior to the novelization, also written by David Seltzer.
