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
- No one wanted or asked for a remake of The Omen.
- It's not as scary as the original.
- There are scenes from 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina. Why put them in there?
- Like the Psycho remake, it's the same film with bad acting and unwanted extended scenes.
- A bunch of scenes drag on.
- Poor special effects for the death scenes.
The Only Redeeming Quality
- Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick, who plays Damien, does a decent job and this was a good way to start his career in acting.
