Trivia

Neither Harvey Stephens nor Jonathan Scott- Taylor continued acting into adulthood. (Whereas Linda Blair did continue into adolescence and young adulthood, still making cameos here and there. She makes one in the movie Scream as a reporter). See more »

Goofs

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 Richard Thorn 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.

Teddy: That's him. He was on the line. But Robert Thorn was quarterback. Even back then he was calling the plays for everybody.
Mark Thorn: [Coming in from Neff's office] You're next, Damien.
Damien Thorn: Teddy, don't ever talk about my father again. Do you understand?
Teddy: Can't you take a joke?

Damien hits puberty.
22 November 1998 | by kneelSee all my reviews

If you liked the first installment, you probably will like Damien-Omen II. It still has the creepiness involved in the first movie and the theme of good vs. evil. But like the first Omen movie, it is quite predictable. Some of the kill scenes are good though, especially the elevator scene.

Take a shot and rent this one. Just don't expect to see a classic.
