Damien: Omen II (1978) review

Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Damien: Omen II (1978)

Written by: Harvey Bernhard, Stanley Mann, Mike Hodges

Directed by: Don Taylor

Cast: William Holden (Richard Thorn), Lee Grant (Ann Thorn), Jonathan Scott-Taylor (Damien Thorn), Sylvia Sidney (Aunt Marion), Robert Foxworth (Paul Buher), Lance Henriksen (Seargent Neff), Meshach Taylor (Dr. Kane)

I know it may be a bit peculiar to review a sequel without doing a retrospective of a whole series of films, but I actually have never seen this one. I watched it and the third movie “The Final Conflict” with Sam Neill back to back. While I haven’t seen the fourth entry, I can say this is probably the last one that has the feel of the original. I can compare this to “Jaws 2”. While not as powerful as the original, it still seems like it exists in the same world. Also like all the “Jaws” sequels after part two, »

Turner Classic Movies will celebrate the life and career of legendary actress Lauren Bacall with a 24-hour marathon of memorable performances, including all four films in which she co-starred with husband Humphrey Bogart.

TCM’s tribute to Bacall, who passed away Tuesday at the age of 89, will air Monday, Sept. 15, beginning at 8 p.m. (Et), and will conclude Tuesday, Sept. 16, her 90th birthday.

Lauren Bacall was a wonderful and generous friend of ours at TCM, and a great connection to the ‘golden age of cinema,’” said TCM host Robert Osborne. “Personally, I have to admit that she never failed to make my heart beat faster and my voice to stammer when we spoke. Talk about true star quality – that was Bacall. We are truly blessed to have had her as an integral part of our TCM family.”

R.I.P. Lauren Bacall, Sultry Star Of Stage And Screens

14 August 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update August 14: Broadway will go dark: The marquees of Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed in memory of Lauren Bacall on Friday, August 15, at exactly 7:45 p.m. for one minute.

One of the leading ladies of Hollywood’s Golden Age died today after a stroke. The sultry, fiery Lauren Bacall was 89. MSNBC’s Thomas Robert broke the news in a tweet, and the Bogart estate has confirmed it. She was famous for starring — onscreeen and off — with Humphrey Bogart in such 1940s classics as The Big Sleep, To Have and Have Not, Dark Passage and Key Largo. In one of Hollywood’s great love stories, they married in 1945 and stayed together until his death in 1957. Four years later she married another acting legend, Jason Robards Jr.; they divorced in 1969.

Lauren Bacall Appreciation: They Don’t Make Them Like Her Anymore

13 August 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

“Just be careful. She doesn’t suffer fools.” That was the advice a publicist gave me just before they put me on the phone with Lauren Bacall about 20 years ago. She was promoting a TNT movie, The Portrait, and as a writer-producer on The Arsenio Hall Show I had persuaded the powers that be to book her on the show — even if, on the surface, she wasn’t the typical kind of contemporary guest we often had on the show. Quite frankly, I just wanted to meet Lauren Bacall, to just hear that legendary sultry voice on the other end of the phone. So I set about doing the pre-interview and apparently passed the “no fools” test because I found her to be a pussycat.

Beast of Burden: Top 10 Human-Animal Combinations in the Movies

8 August 2014 3:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It can be such a beautiful happening when the natural forces of humanity and the wild kingdom can get together and establish a sense of harmony in motion pictures. Also, it can be a compelling yet regrettable conflict as well when man and beast decide to collide in the interest of big screen entertainment. Whatever the case may be certainly does not matter because the concept of  beasts of all species (rather it be of the four-legged or two-legged variety) collectively clashing or cooperating sends a special message about triumph, tragedy and just plain tenderness.

In Beast of Burden: Top 10 Human-Animal Combinations in the Movies we will look at some of the best selections where man and animal co-exist whether it be in calmness or chaos. There is no doubt that one can come up with numerous top ten lists detailing their ideal man-animal themes in cinema. The struggle for »

Price: DVD $19.95, Blu-ray $29.95

Studio: Kino Lorber

Anthony Perkins, Gregory Peck and Fred Astaire in On The Beach.

The science-fiction-tinged drama On The Beach is Stanley Kramer’s 1959 film adaptation of British-Australian author Nevil Shute’s 1957 post-apocalyptic novel.

In 1964, atomic war wipes out humanity in the northern hemisphere; one American submarine—the Sawfish—finds temporary safe haven in Australia, where life-as-usual covers growing despair. . Captain Dwight Towers (Gregory Peck, The Guns of Navarone) takes the Sawfish on a mission to see if an approaching radiation cloud has weakened, but returns with grim news: the cloud is lethal. With the days and hours dwindling, each person confronts the grim situation in his or her own way. One (Fred Astaire, Easter Parade) realizes a lifetime Grand Prix ambition; another (Ava Gardner, Earthquake) reaches out for a chance at love. The final chapter of human history is coming to a close… »

Rian Johnson Cites 'Twelve O’Clock High' & 'Letter Never Sent' Among Inspirations For 'Star Wars: Episode VIII'

29 July 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While J.J. Abrams' upcoming "Star Wars: Episode 7" doesn't have a formal, non-generic title yet, the spotlight now turns to Rian Johnson's "Star Wars: Episode 8." With the filmmaker tapped to write and direct that installment and to write the treatment for "Star Wars: Episode 9," he's diving deep into the George Lucas created universe. And while he's likely sitting on all kinds of spoiler-y details, he recently shared a couple of clues that will give super-fans something to chew on. Appearing on a Filmspotting podcast (via Chicago Sun-Times), the director was humble regarding his "Star Wars" job. “I can only assume it was a clerical error, like in the movie ‘Brazil.’ There’s a Brian Johnson out there who is really mad,” he said. Johnson went on to reveal that he and his crew have been holding nightly screenings, mentioning Henry King's "Twelve O'Clock High" starring Gregory Peck, »

Rian Johnson Is Already Revealing Details About 'Star Wars: Episode VIII'

29 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Star Wars: Episode VII" still feels light years away from its December 2015 release, but that doesn't mean that Rian Johnson, just picked to write and direct its sequel, "Episode VIII," isn't already conducting research for his film.

In an interview taped for the Filmspotting podcast, Johnson chatted about his childhood love of the "Star Wars" movies, revealed the cinematic influences he plans on including in the flick, and discussed his unlikely selection as the newest member of the "Star Wars" filmmakers club.

"The thought of it made me so completely joyfully happy," Johnson said of agreeing to the offer to direct "Episode VIII." "I wanted to to play in this world, of literally the first movie my dad put me in the car to see."

The "Looper" director also joked that with his less-well-known pedigree, it must have been "a clerical error" that saw him land the gig, adding, "There's »

Amanda’s Adaptations: To Kill a Mockingbird – Book Vs Film

25 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Reading To Kill a Mockingbird as a teenager had a massive impact on me. The powerful story with messages about tolerance, understanding and trying to see life from another’s perspective really opened my eyes to the everyday injustices of the world.

Harper Lee’s book is written from two perspectives in a way – a woman looking back at her childhood and that same child looking out into the world and asking questions adults didn’t dare ask. As a central character, Scout is miraculous. She is inquisitive and naughty but ultimately good. She tries to do her best, it’s just that her best frequently rubs people up the wrong way. Whether it’s the neighbours telling her off for dressing like a boy or her teacher telling her off for knowing how to read, the only person Scout seems to be able to be herself with is her father Atticus. »

10 Superhero Films If They Were Made By Legendary Directors

11 July 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

In 2003 a rumour proliferated online that back in 1946 Orson Welles had planned to direct a Batman film. The information “uncovered” included a wealth of detail on Welles’ intentions for his film “The Bat-Man” and painted a compelling picture of what might have been.

The word was that Welles wanted to portray Batman himself but the studio instead forced through the casting of hot property Gregory Peck. Peck was to be supported by a dream cast that included Marlene Dietrich as Catwoman, George Raft as Two-Face, James Cagney as The Riddler and Basil Rathbone as The Joker. The Bat-Man would have been a hard-nosed noir take on the material – faithful to the original incarnation of the character.

It would be enough to make you weep for what we were denied if it hadn’t all been revealed as an almighty hoax orchestrated by comics scribe Mark Millar on the Cbr message boards. »
