The Omen (1976) is an unforgettable horror classic. Few movies have been able to revive that spooky, haunting air of living with an evil child – Damien, the antichrist – including the film’s sequels.
The film stars Greogry Peck as Robert Thorn, American ambassador to United Kingdom who adopts a child after his own is born dead to his wife Katherine (Lee Remick). Before long, unfortunate and mysterious events start to happen around Thorn. And when he learns from a priest that his adopted child,Damien (Harvey Spencer Stephens) is the antichrist, he refuses to listen to the argument that the child needs to be killed to save humanity.
There are many scenes in the film that keep giving Goosebumps to its viewers. The one below shows the moment when Damien cycles out in his possessed mien and rams into the support holding Katherine as she tries to reach the ceiling, knocking her down. Cuteness and danger fit so well in this one child bearing the sign 666!
