The Omen (1976)

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. In Richard Donner’s terror classic, mysterious events plague the Thorn family, American ambassador Robert (Gregory Peck), his wife Katherine (Lee Remick) and their young son Damien (Harvey Stephens). Was it an accident? A coincidence? Murder? Or was it The Omen? As the horror around them intensifies, the investigation into the child’s background deepens and they realize the unspeakable…. could they be raising the Antichrist? The Omen remains one of the great horror blockbusters, featuring an excellent cast, iconic imagery and an unforgettable, Oscar-winning score by Jerry Goldsmith.

“Entertaining and yes, still ominous after all these years. A landmark of satanic cinema.” – Film4

Holocaust 2000

He will destroy the world. No man can stop him. No man will even try. He is The Chosen. Ignoring the ancient warnings, a wealthy industrialist (Kirk Douglas) builds a controversial nuclear power plant in the Middle East, triggering an apocalyptic prophecy that reveals his son is the Antichrist, and the tyke’s hellbent on global nuclear destruction. Holocaust 2000 is a grim and totally gonzo Italian horror knockoff of The Omen, scored by Ennio Morricone and helmed by Alberto De Martino, director of The Antichrist and Strange Shadows in an Empty Room.

“The wildest farrago yet to have come out of the demonology genre” – Monthly Film Bulletin
