Damien: Omen II
Horror • 1978 • 1 hr 47 min
Not a terrible movie, achieves watchability. But trying to make Damien a "real" character was a mistake. Doesn't hold a candle to The Omen.
Not horrible, but it doesn't feel like the first one. And this makes it mostly unnecessary.
Excellent horror series with some classic memorable scenes. This one is solid though I find the first and third superior.
I don't know what happened. Omen 1 was a great starting chapter, but they really dropped the ball on this one. Special effects were better.
Good for a sequel but no match for the first. Some good death sequences of that's what you're into
A very strong continuation of the story line with very unnerving moments, even if it doesn’t top the original.
Part 2... the story continues. It’s what you’d expect it to be after watching the first
The second Omen movie is even less scary than its predecessor, and occasionally manages to be laughably bad.
In my opinion, the best in the series. Not exactly good horror nowadays, but a classic nonetheless.
Definitely a middle child and the worst of the three (I'm ignoring part 4!)
Immediately after their miscarriage, the US diplomat Robert Thorn adopts the newborn Damien without the knowledge of his wife. Yet what he doesn’t know is that their new son is the son of the devil.
Since the sudden and highly suspicious death of his parents, 12-year-old Damien has been in the charge of his wealthy aunt and uncle. Widely feared to be the Antichrist, Damien relentlessly plots to seize control of his uncle's business empire—and the world. Anyone attempting to unravel the secrets of Damien's sinister past or fiendish future meets with a swift and cruel demise.
Damien Thorn has helped rescue the world from a recession, appearing to be a benign corporate benefactor. When he then becomes U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Damien fulfills a terrifying biblical prophecy. He also faces his own potential demise as an astronomical event brings about the second coming of Christ.
Damien Thorn is dead, but his prophecy is reborn in a girl named Delia, who is adopted by two attorneys, Gene and Karen York. When Karen realizes her baby was born under suspicious circumstances, she hires a private investigator to find Delia's real parents. A series of bizarre accidents occur, and Karen begins to suspect everyone of conspiring against her as she unravels the truth about her baby.
