The Omen


(1976) ***1/2

This classic about a U.S. ambassador raising the Antichrist does drag at times, but also offers a consistent buildup of tension, some great deaths, and a satisfying and chilling climax.

I haven't seen this in ages but I recall that it was a bit slow as well. I much prefer Damien: Omen 2. I hope you get to check it out!

I love the first 2 films, not so much 3 & 4.
