In the first scene set in the Fernbank Observatory, the rate of acceleration of the stars under observation is given as "...a couple of thousand Parsecs, minimum". In real life the Parsec is a unit of distance, not acceleration. (However, this could be a sly reference to the famous misuse of the term "Parsec" in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.) See more »

The horror in this movie is so bad it's funny! Every time a monk gets anywhere near Damien the poor guy falls off 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 over 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?
