The Omen (2006) Synopsis


The prophecy is clear, the signs unmistakable: Armageddon is upon us. On 6 / 6 / 06, the omen is revealed...and our darkest fears are realized. THE OMEN, a contemporary thriller based on the 1976 classic film, centers around a young boy named Damien, the son of an American diplomat and his wife. Damien’s family is unaware he is destined to become the Anti-Christ – until shattering events reveal the terrifying truth.


I'm a huge fan of the original The Omen and frankly I can't imagine how a modern movie is really going to improve on what I consider one of the best classic horror flicks. The dedication in the voice of the nanny as she declares "It's all for you Damien", the behading of David Warner, these are classic moments in the history of cinema. Liev Schreiber is good, but he's no Gregory Peck. Then again, I didn't expect much from him in The Manchurian Candidate remake, and he proved a suitable Lawrence Harvey there. If this movie ends up working, look for a remake of a Jimmy Stewart movie with Schreiber's name on it in the future.

Other than taking advantage of a convienient date (being released on 6/6/06), I don't expect to see much from this remake that wasn't done better in the original film.
