Trivia

Ironically, Sylvia Sidney, who played Aunt Marion, outlived William Holden by almost 20 years: Holden died in 1981, shortly after this movie came out, from a tragic accident where he tripped and hit his head on an end table in his room. (Rumor has it his heavy drinking contributed to his accident and early death). Conversely, Silvia Sydney died in 1999 from natural causes. See more »

Goofs

Some viewers have claimed that the faces of Damien on Yigael's Wall differ when shown throughout the film. However, Bugenhagen states that the Wall shows four faces of the Antichrist during his rise to power. We only see two of these clearly in the film (Damien aged 5 and 13), with a very brief glimpse of what may be a third face. See more »

Quotes

Damien Thorn: Yes. Born in the image of the greatest power in the world! The Desolate One. Desolate because his greatness was taken from him and he was cast down. But he has risen, Mark, in me!

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
