The disappointing box office returns from this movie, and the failure of Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977) and The Chosen (1977) signaled the end of Hollywood's 70s demon child fad. Though demon child movies still get made from time to time the fad would never again be at its zenith as it was in the 70s. The dominant trend, starting with the release of Halloween (1978), was now slasher movies. See more »

Well, it wasn't great, but I have to admit that the second Omen was pretty good and in some ways just necessary. Necessary, I mean because this story is of course not finished. Before seeing "The Hills have Eyes" on Friday night, they had trailers, and one was *shudder* a remake to the Omen. Another one, another remake! Oh, well, this just isn't going to stop. So, anyways, I saw The Omen last year and figured I should finish the trilogy. I am curious and frankly, a bit creeped out that the new Omen is being released on 06-06-2006, "666", get it?
The story itself is pretty good actually, now that Damien has been under the care of his aunt and uncle, strange things are happening again. It seems like anyone who is getting to close to finding out the truth about Damien is getting killed in some freak accident. This is a very good sequel that should be given a second chance.
