Trivia

David Seltzer was approached to write the screenplay but refused as he had no interest in writing sequels. Years later, he commented that if he had written it, he would have set it the day after the first The Omen (1976) film ended, with Damien living in the White House. See more »

Goofs

When Damien tells Mark that he's alright after uncovering his supernatural identity, the reflection of a crew member is visible on the end of a trumpet in the inter-cut rotating shot. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Kane: Mr. Thorn? They'll be alright. We've checked every boy for lung damage not a sign of it. Now they are gonna be nauseous for a little while but there is no permanent damage...
Richard Thorn: Doctor I don't care what it costs...
Dr. Kane: I assure you Mr. Thorn, they're all receiving the best care. Now there is one thing though, we made every possible test of blood damage, tissue damage and every boy was affected at some level though as I said not seriously. That is every boy except your nephew Damien.
Richard Thorn: Do you mean that.....

Damien hits puberty.
22 November 1998 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

If you liked the first installment, you probably will like Damien-Omen II. It still has the creepiness involved in the first movie and the theme of good vs. evil. But like the first Omen movie, it is quite predictable. Some of the kill scenes are good though, especially the elevator scene.

Take a shot and rent this one. Just don't expect to see a classic.
