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.

A good sequel
14 March 2006 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Well, it wasn't great, but I have to admit that the second Omen was pretty good and in some ways just necessary. Necessary, I mean because this story is of course not finished. Before seeing "The Hills have Eyes" on Friday night, they had trailers, and one was *shudder* a remake to the Omen. Another one, another remake! Oh, well, this just isn't going to stop. So, anyways, I saw The Omen last year and figured I should finish the trilogy. I am curious and frankly, a bit creeped out that the new Omen is being released on 06-06-2006, "666", get it?

The story itself is pretty good actually, now that Damien has been under the care of his aunt and uncle, strange things are happening again. It seems like anyone who is getting to close to finding out the truth about Damien is getting killed in some freak accident. This is a very good sequel that should be given a second chance.

6/10
