Damien states, while talking to The President, that in two years from that time it will be 1984, making it 1982. If that is the case, than The Omen should be set in the 1950s, not 1976, as it obviously is. This could be due to the fact that at the time the Producers and the studio hadn't anticipated the sequels and the associated time-line. See more »

I was excited to view this film after watching two shocking films before, and I was not pleased. It opens with a patriotic type of black mass(fabulously scored by Goldsmith)over sounding the continuing story of Damien, the antichrist, but alas it was not meant to be! Upsetting in almost all departments it was carried into, this film was a disapointment. I could deal with shocking deaths of child killing, because at least that was attention getting, but the ending was a real letdown!!! Sam Neill was absolutely perfect in a dark and seductive role as an older version of the antichrist, but his terrific portrayal was wasted by the terrible writing this one had to offer. All that build up for a lackluster ending! Just watch the first two, and avoid this one!
