    Synopsis


    Damien: Omen II
    Satan's son comes of age in this horror sequel. Shortly after the events of The Omen, a pair of anthropologists uncovers an ancient crypt that depicts the face of the Antichrist -- that of Damien Thorn (Jonathan Scott-Taylor), recently orphaned scion of a wealthy industrialist. Before they can warn the world of the child's evil lineage, both men are buried under tons of rubble. Seven years later, 13-year-old Damien attends military school alongside his cousin, Mark (Lucas Donat), and spends lots of time with his adoptive parents, Uncle Richard (William Holden) and Aunt Ann (Lee Grant). After the boy's Great Aunt Marion (Sylvia Sidney) tries to convince the Thorns that Damien is a malevolent influence on Mark, she dies suddenly, and, unbeknownst to the family, horrifically. Ravens, it seems, are the harbingers of Damien's power, and in addition to Aunt Marion, they visit a long procession of characters who get too close to Damien's true identity. The most horrible death is suffered by Joan Hart (Elizabeth Shepherd), an investigative reporter who's digging into the boy's life; she gets flattened by a truck after having her eyes devoured by those menacing birds. Meanwhile, executive Paul Buher (Robert Foxworth) climbs the corporate ladder at Thorn Industries and takes young Damien under his devil-worshiping wings. Sgt. Neff (Lance Henriksen), one of the boy's instructors, also helps initiate Damien. As the pile of bodies gets bigger -- and closer -- Uncle Richard begins to suspect the truth, and, like his brother before him, plot the death of Damien. The existence of another sequel, 1981's The Final Conflict, gives a good indication of the outcome. Although Damien: Omen II is his only Hollywood feature credit, Scott-Taylor appeared frequently in the theater and on television; he once even portrayed Damien's arch-nemesis, Jesus, on-stage. ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi

    The Omen
    Satan's son has arrived on Earth and He's not about to let human parents get in the way. When his wife Katherine's (Lee Remick) pregnancy ends in a stillbirth in a Rome hospital, U.S. diplomat Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck) substitutes another baby, whose mother died. Little Damien (Harvey Stephens) thrives, but, at his fifth birthday party, his nanny mysteriously dies; Father Brennan (Patrick G. Troughton) also expires after warning Thorn that he has adopted Lucifer's son. While sinister new nanny Mrs. Baylock (Billie Whitelaw) assiduously protects Damien, Thorn's fears escalate when photographer Jennings (David Warner) shows him pictures from Damien's party with marks suggesting how the nanny and Brennan would die. Thorn seeks out Bugenhagen (Leo McKern), an exorcist who confirms Damien's identity and tells Thorn that the only solution is to kill his adopted son. As the bodies pile up, Thorn tries to do his duty, but trust the law to get in the way of saving the world from future Armageddon. ~ Lucia Bozzola, Rovi

    The Final Conflict
    The second sequel to the 1976 horror hit The Omen finds Damien Thorn assuming the full mantle of the Antichrist and preparing for a final, all-out battle with "the Nazarene." Now in his thirties, Damien (Sam Neill) has elevated the family business, Thorn Industries, into the world's biggest multinational corporation. A little bit of black magic paves the way for Damien to become ambassador to England and the head of an international youth council. He soon uses this platform to amass an army of followers to do his bidding. But when Damien notices the confluence of three stars in the sky on March 24, he gets worried about the second coming of Christ. So he orders his minions to kill all the babies born on that day, warning them: "Fail, and you will be condemned to a numbing eternity in the flaccid bosom of Christ." Damien even orders his faithful private secretary, Harvey Dean (Don Gordon), to commit infanticide on his own kid, just because the guy's wife gave birth on the wrong day; a nasty incident involving laundry-room implements soon follows. Meanwhile, Damien romances Kate Reynolds (Lisa Harrow), a beautiful television anchorwoman who feels like a moth drawn to Damien's charismatic flame -- even after he brutally sodomizes her to show her how the world looks through his eyes. Things come to a head when Brother DeCarlo (Rossano Brazzi), one of a secret cabal of monks who have assembled the seven Daggers of Meggido in hopes of assassinating Damien, reveals to Kate that the Antichrist has taken her son (Barnaby Holm) under his wing. Although The Final Conflict was the final theatrical installment of the Omen series, the made-for-TV Omen IV: The Awakening appeared a decade later. ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi

    The Omen
    A child that will steer humankind down the road to hellfire has been born, and as his evil flourishes in a world full of hate, the ominous Biblical prophecies slowly begin falling into place in director John Moore's remake of Richard Donner's 1976 horror classic. Robert (Liev Schreiber) and Katherine Thorn (Julia Stiles) were as loving parents as any young boy could ask for, but as fate would have it, their new son Damien is far from the typical child. Now, as the mysterious boy's growth begins to share frightening parallels with the Biblical passages detailing the rise of the Antichrist, and the lives of all who seek to reveal his true nature are cut gruesomely short, Robert and Katherine are forced to face the horrifying prospect that their child has been sent from Satan to hasten the fall of modern civilization, and that there is little they can do to curb his prophesied path of ultimate destruction. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Classic Horor box set

      Posted

      The Omen- THE Omen as one of the best horror movies from the 1970s. It should also be pointed out that these types of tragedies do happen in life and there's a rational explanation with no supernatural causes involved. I will admit that the movie wasn't as good as I remembered it. Omen II- this film contains all of the chills of the original as Damien learns about who he really is. It has one thing that I particularly liked that moment of indecision, when Damien, in a mirror of Jesus asks himself, why is it me. The moment when whatever innocence is in him is finally lost. If you like the first one this is a must see. Omen III - It's incredibly rare to find a sequel, much less the SECOND sequel, to be so good. I suppose it's very upsetting in places, since Damien is now an adult, in change of the Ambassador position after all this time, but even so, the film is very powerful, and very moving. Once again, the "Omen" series flourishes. The Omen 2006 - Remake of the original "The Omen" is solid as a rock and very faithful to the original. So faithful in fact, that one has to wonder what was the point of making a remake. If I realized anything watching this movie it's how amazing the script was in the first place. It builds up perfectly, it's thrilling as hell and there are no plot holes to be found. The only reason to watch this film since its just like the first is if you want to see how technology with camera work has improved.

      Almost Perfect Set

      This is one of my all time favorite horror series. All three movies look and sound better than I have ever seen. The original Omen comes loaded with extra features on Blu-ray. Omen 2 and 3 however have nothing extra on them that did not appear on the DVD editions. This was a little disappointing for me. At least they could have thrown in a trivia track or something. The Omen remake is the same exact disc that was previously released on Blu. My one BIG complaint about this set would have to be the packaging. Considering the price of the set, it comes packaged in a very shoddily made box. I'm not sure if this is supposed to be "Earth Friendly" by not using any plastic housing for the discs, but Fox seriously dropped the ball on the packaging. The outer case has very cool artwork, but it is not sturdy at all. The movies are housed on a fold out inner jacket where each movie is simply held in place with a foam rubber hub. There is no booklet or anything else. Not only is the box cheaply constructed, it is also waaaay too big for a Blu-ray. It is about the size of a regular DVD, which causes it to really stick out among the rest of my collection.

      A Horror Classic With Subpar Home Video Treatment

      "The Omen" is one of the scariest and greatest horror films ever made. Not only is it an excellent film though, it also features an extremely well written script (something that is a rarity in horror). Even though it was made 30 years ago is still just as terrifying today as it was the day it was released. The video and audio presentation on the three original films is acceptable and the remake is exactly what I would expect for video/audio presentation from a 2006 film. The set includes the original film, its two sequels and the aforementioned 2006 remake, marked in the set as The Omen 666 to avoid confusion with the original film. The special features are bare-bone and the case it comes in is a joke. It's all cardboard and oversized for a usual Blu-Ray case so if your shelves are spaced to Blu-Rays like mine are it won't fit. But what you do get is not only one of the greatest horror films ever made but its two sequels that are shockingly good. The remake is too faithful to the original so it feels somewhat pointless but if you prefer a flashier version with a stellar contemporary cast that rivals the original film for talent than give it a shot. In the end if you are a fan it is most definitely worth the purchase.

      Great set, but Could've Been Better w/ Omen 4.

      This box set is a great deal with the original classic trilogy included, and at this price even better. I would've given this 5 stars, but I have only one complaint: instead of including the 2006 remake of The Omen as the 4th disc after the trilogy, I think The Omen IV: The Awakening would've been a "MUCH" better choice as the 4th disc to include with this box set, like they did with the original DVD boxed collection that came out years ago (in pic below). Why they included the remake instead of Omen IV is beyond me, seeing as most folk found the remake of the original Omen to be horrible. Why remake what is already a "great" classic? Moreover, The Omen 4 is a nice end to the post-Damien cycle. Great package otherwise. I highly recommend.

      The Omen series is okay. If you already like it, then this is a fine set minus some of the tv movies. The remake is painfully pointless in places if you have seen and liked the first movie. If you haven't it's really not that bad of a way to enter the world of Damien. But the real gem is the third Omen film with Sam Neil and shows the true scope that this series has and could have if they wanted to really remake the series and not just make a quick buck rehashing (like they did). My only other complaint about this collection is that the transfers aren't drop dead gorgeous, they're better than a DVD but probably because there is less compression, not because of the scan.

      Not as crazy or in your face like The Exorcist, the subtleness of the horror is a great watch for fans of the genre. For info of the AV qualities of each of the movies check out the Blu-ray.com review. http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-Omen-Collection-Blu-ray/938/#Review The few omission in this collection is the made-for-TV film Omen IV: The Awakening, "Omenisms" documentary (37:17 min) for The Omen 666 Remake that is available on DVD, & some other extras that were available on a Bonus Disc for Walmart.

      "The Omen Collection" Blu-ray Disc set is well worth the inexpensive price at Best Buy. It contains the original trilogy of the Omen series, along with the 2006 remake. Just commentary and movie trailers on parts 2&3, but luckily the original (as well as remake) have a lot more bonus features. My one and only complaint is that the 4 discs are in sleeves in the fold out boxed set rather than locked in the plastic holders as they are in most regular and many boxed sets. That's just my preference. Besides that great deal indeed!

      Each one of the Omen series is a decent movie by itself and worth watching.The main problem is that plot lines do not match at all .I don't want to give away any plot points but the fact that The main character ages 35 years in a time space of 12 years was never explained,and at the end of each of the first two movies a major plot point is just completely forgotten in the beginning of the next.Getting the three original movies for $10 on blu-Ray is wroth the price if you liked the movies but not a classic horror movies in my opinion.
