Goofs

Some viewers have questioned how Bugenhagen's box in Jerusalem could have contained the daggers that Robert Thorn had used in London only a few days previously. The novelization makes it clear that the daggers were returned to Bugenhagen by a priest of the London church where Robert Thorn had attempted to stab Damien. See more »

Alternate Versions

The original version was released uncut with a "Not under 16" rating in German cinemas in 1978, the 1983 VHS release was uncut as well. The 1992 VHS re-release was cut (ca. 3 minutes) due to the fact that in the 1980s the uncut version was put on the index for youth endangering media. Only in 2001 the film was removed from that index and the film was re-released uncut, again with a "Not under 16" rating. See more »

An enjoyable sequel
19 January 2014 | by veryape-887-913905See all my reviews

Damien:Omen 2 is a very enjoyable sequel to The Omen in my opinion the first is better but i did enjoy this also. This film was released in 1978 2 years after the first and it tells the story of Damien the Anti-Christ who is now age 12 he is starting to understand his duty in the line of Satan whilst a strange crow eliminates any people who know his real identity and are seen enemies in the eyes of Satan. This film is not the best in the Omen series but it is a very watchable film, it isn't a film that will bore you to death and it isn't a film that will keep you on the end of your seat for 100 minutes but i do recommend it to the people who are interested in these films it is a clever entry in the omen franchise
