Still haunted by his gruesome past, Tommy Jarvis - the boy who killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if somehow he is connected to brutal slayings occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.
Now come into his full knowledge and power, the Anti-Christ in the body of Damien Thorne is about to strike his final blow. The Christ-child has been born again, on the Angel Isle, Great Britain (Scotland, England & Wales). The plan is simple, find the male children born on the specified day, and kill them all. Written by

Actor James Mason acted as a sponsor to the production for actor Sam Neill. Mason originally suggested to the film's producers that they should check out Neill. Producer Harvey Bernhard had Neill flown in to London for an audition, paid for by Mason. Neill later reimbursed Mason for the airfare. Neill drew on some of Mason's mannerisms for his performance and characterization. See more »
The film was shot in the summer, which is obvious by the foliage. At Damien's reception as US Ambassador to the Court of St James, his assistant's wife is shown in the late stages of pregnancy, and it becomes an important plot aspect that her son is born on March 24th. If she were in late pregnancy, it should therefore be late winter, not summer. The foliage does not match the timing in the plot line with her pregnancy and her baby's birth date. See more »
Most people confuse evil with their own trivial lusts and perversions. Now, true evil is as pure as innocence.

The horror in this movie is so bad it's funny! Every time a monk gets anywhere near Damien the poor guy falls over a bridge or drops down a hole or just slips on a banana peel or something.
On the other hand, the smart and pretty lady reporter gets her hands on Damien right away, without any trouble. It's said that Sam Neill who plays Damien and Lisa Harrow who plays Kate Reynolds were actually falling in love for real as this movie was being made. It really shows! Aside from being just gorgeous, Lisa Harrow was a good actress. You can see that her character has at least three sides to her. As a reporter, she's intrigued by Damien's vast wealth and growing political power. As a mother, she's frightened of his influence on her troubled teenage son. And as a woman, she can't help responding to the sheer excitement of his darkly sexual charisma. But what makes this interesting is that the story line always treats her character with respect. Her sexual feelings don't cancel out her heart or her intelligence, they just make her more mature and sympathetic.
Why is it that major stars like Julia Roberts and Meg Ryan never play anyone half as interesting as this?
