The Omen 2006 poster

The Omen (also known as The Omen: 666) is a 2006 American supernatural horror film directed by John Moore and written by David Seltzer. A remake of the 1976 film The Omen, the film stars Liev Schreiber, Julia Stiles and Mia Farrow. It was released worldwide on June 6, 2006 — the date intentionally reflecting the purported Number of the Beast, 666.


Robert and Katherine Thorn adopt a child and name him Damien. But, unbeknownst to them, Damien is actually the Anti-Christ.

Why It Sucks

  1. No one wanted or asked for a remake of The Omen.
  2. It's not as scary as the original.
  3. There are scenes from 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina. Why put them in there?
  4. Like the Psycho remake, it's the same film with bad acting and unwanted extended scenes.
  5. A bunch of scenes drag on.
  6. Poor special effects for the death scenes.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick, who plays Damien, does a decent job and this was a good way to start his career in acting.
