The elevator cables shown to cut both the doctor in the elevator car, as well as the car itself, in half would not have done so. The elevator shaft is too narrow and all elevator cars have at least FOUR cables to prevent the car from potentially sliding down the shaft in the event of catastrophic failure.
Any failed cable would strike the sides of the shaft and the other cables on it was down to the car. It would then encounter the trolley system on top of the elevator. All of these actions would cause it to lose momentum and it would fall to rest on top of the car itself. Even if it cut through the roof, it would not have enough remaining inertia to slice through the entire car itself. See more »
Beginning again with the mad dash of Bugenhagen(Leo McKern) through the Haifa port under the very fitting theme of Jerry Goldsmith, this film contains all of the chills of the original as Damien learns about who he really is. It has one thing that I particularly liked that moment of indecision,when Damien, in a mirror of Jesus asks himself, why is it me. The moment when whatever innocence is in him is finally lost. William Holden and Lee Grant are excellent as his aunt and uncle, and there are several actors who cement their acting careers in the parts they play in this film. I am referring to Robert Foxworth for one, and Lance Henrickson for another. Silvia Sydney is one of of her last roles as Aunt Marion (smelling of Lilac or lavender) and the one really weak role was Nicholas Pryor as the director of the Thorn Museum. I am truly sorry for those people who did not care for this film, as it is head and shoulders above most of the Anti-Christ movies made. If you liked the first one this is a must see.
