Damien Thorn (Jonathan Scott-Taylor) is now a teenager, but does not know he is evil. What will he do when he finds out who he is? Can he accept it, can he reject it? William Holden brings the star power that Gregory Peck brought to the first one, just as the crow has now replaced the rottweiler. The film is full of analogues. Oh, and even Lance Henriksen shows up! And we cannot overlook the glorious music of Jerry Goldsmith.
This was supposed to be developed with producer Harvey Bernhard's best friend Richard Donner, but he ended up getting "Superman" around this time Some of the beauty of the film is that the beginning was shot in an actual castle from the Crusades with an actual escape tunnel. Other scenes were filmed in Wisconsin (Eagle River, Lake Geneva, Delafield) and Illinois (Lake Forest, Chicago). When filming in Eagle River, they stayed at the home of a teamster who was murdered about three months later for his involvement with Jimmy Hoffa.
The scene under the ice was completely real: the man was really under the ice and had to swim for thirty or forty feet. Incredible, but true.
producer and story writer Harvey Bernhard's commentary tells about the film's creation, and chronicles his dislike of the film's original director, Mike Hodges, and his preference for Don Taylor, the man who took over. Bernhard also believes it is not possible to believe in God but not the devil... his reasoning is questionable.
