Damien the Antichrist, now age 13, finally learns of his destiny under the guidance of an unholy disciple of Satan. Meanwhile dark mystical forces begin to eliminate all those who suspect the child's true identity.
Seven years later, 13-year-old Damien is just discovering who he really is, and what he is destined to do. Now living with his Aunt, Uncle, and cousin in a wealthy suburb of Chicago, Damien is anxious to inherit everything. Can Richard Thorn finish the job that Damien's father (Ambassador Thorn) started?

The setting goes from fall to winter (with snow on the ground and a lake frozen over) back to what looks like early fall (leaves on trees just yellowing and the grass still green) several times in what is supposed to be a continuous 9 month period - one school year in the life of the titular character. In one scene, a major character dies in the snow surrounded by leafless trees. This is immediately followed by a scene at his funeral (which could only have been a couple of days later) back in early fall. Later, when Damien's Uncle is in New York City there's a thick blanket of snow on the ground and he is visibly cold, while back in Chicago, on what is supposed to be the same day, the trees are again covered by faintly yellowed leaves and the weather seems mild.

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.
