When Kathy Thorn (Lee Remick) gives birth to a stillborn baby, her husband Robert (Gregory Peck) shields her from the devastating truth and substitutes an orphaned infant for their own - unaware of the child's satanic origins.
The horror begins on Damien's fifth birthday when his nanny stages a dramatic suicide. Soon after, a priest who tries to warn Damien's father is killed in a freakish accident. As the death toll mounts, Robert realises his son is the Antichrist and decides he must kill the boy to prevent him from fulfilling a cataclysmic prophecy.
Briskly paced and breathtakingly evil, 'The Omen' is the first film in a classic four-part legacy of terror...

The Omen (1976) - superseded by the 5.1 30th Anniversary SE
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 16/03/2008 11:45:31
This "original" of the film with its stereo soundtrack has now been superseded by a very nice 2 disc SE giving the original and best of The Omen films a deserved re-mastering and a decent 5.1 surround mix (unlike many of the so-called 5.1 remixes for old films). Buy the SE instead of this - you won't be dissappointed.
