Product Description

In this sequel to 'The Omen', the orphan Damien is now 13 and adored by the rich aunt and uncle who took him in. When Aunt Marion (Lee Grant) begins to suspect there is more to Damien than adolescent angst, she is quickly dispatched by a killer raven. Damien, now making his mark at military school, is dismayed to discover his true demonic identity - but not for long.

From Amazon.co.uk

Several years after the mysterious events that claimed the life of the US Ambassador and his wife, the now teenaged and militarily enrolled Damien Thorne is slowly being made aware of his unholy heritage and horrific destiny. Woe is he (including anyone in Damien's adoptive family and his classmates) who suspects the truth or gets in his way. While not as unrelentingly frightening as its blockbuster predecessor, this more-than-competent sequel to The Omen raises some interesting questions about the nature of free will (can the antichrist deny his birthright?) before falling into a gory series of increasingly outlandish deaths, the best of which is a terrifyingly protracted scene beneath the ice of a frozen lake. Jerry Goldsmith (who won an Oscar for his work on the first film in the series) contributes another marvellously foreboding score. --AndrewWright --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: VHS Tape
This sequel, released two years after the blockbuster success of "The Omen", is itself a stylish thriller. Featuring an excellent cast, it attempts to continue the momentum of the original. While having some shortcomings, the film, nonetheless, manages to entertain and shock. This is due in large part to its excellent cast and another chilling musical score by Jerry Goldsmith that is used to great effect.
This film continues the story begun in "The Omen". The Antichrist, Damien (Jonathan Scott Taylor), is here on earth and is now twelve, His parents, Katherine and Robert Thorn, are now dead, and Damien is being raised by his uncle, Richard Thorn (William Holden) and his second wife, Ann (Lee Grant). He lives with them and Richard Thorn's son by his first wife, Mark (Lucas Donat). Damien is disliked by his Aunt Marion (Sylvia Sidney), who counsels the Thorns to separate Mark from Damien with whom he is close.
Damien attends a militairy boarding school with his cousin Mark. There, Damien's interests are looked after by Sgt. Neff (Lance Hendricksen), a sort of earthly sentinel. There, Damien begins to flex his satanic muscles, much to the chagrin of a school bully. Meanwhile, Damien's interests in the Thorn family's multi-million dollar empire are being watched over by his uncle's highly placed executive employee, Paul Buher (Robert Foxworth), unbeknownst to his uncle. This is a man about whom Thorn's chief executive, Bill Atherton (Lew Ayres) has some serious misgivings. When several of the people who stand in the way of Damien securing control of the family fortune meet unusual deaths, the viewer knows that Damien's true nature has been unleashed.
William Holden and Lee Grant are terrific. With straightforward, sincere portrayals, they are the linchpins of this movie.

Format: DVD
"The Omen" (or "Omen I", if you like) is one of the greatest horror movies ever made, so any sequel was going to be blighted by the curse of the "difficult second album". Fortunately, "Damien: Omen II" is far better than your average follow-up, taking us into the abominable Damien Thorn's teenage years. Following the conclusion of the first film, Damien (Jonathan Scott-Taylor) is now living in America with his uncle Richard (William Holden), aunt Ann (Lee Grant), and cousin Mark (Lucas Donat). At the beginning of the film, he is not yet aware of his true origins or his destiny. A young man's reaction to the news that he is the Son of Satan would conceivably be enough to fill an entire film on its' own merit, so don't expect too much here when the revelation finally comes. But that is not to denigrade Scott-Taylor's performance, which is good if lacking in the sheer creepiness of Harvey Stephens in the original film.
I may be biased, but I felt that the British setting added much to "The Omen" that America cannot give "Omen II", and inevitably there is an increase in shock-and-awe at the expense of mood and plotting, but if there is one part where the sequel trumps the original it is with the doctor-in-the-elevator scene, which almost threw me out of the bed when I first saw it. The final twist is also very well done, and I am glad to see other reviews expressing the same surprise that I felt. By this time, Damien has come to terms with who/what he is, so that self-satisfied smirk to camera in the final scene maintains the air of impending apocalypse that underpins the strength of this tale.

Jonathan Scott-Taylor went on to appear in the BBC's bargain-basement soap opera "Triangle". A reader of the News of the World was compelled at the time to ask: "If he can kill off half the cast of ('Omen II'), is it too much to hope that he will shortly use his powers on 'Triangle'?"

Although not as scary as the first film the second in the series is still a film that will worry many. One of the reasons why this is such a good sequel is that it continues the story almost seamlessly, while delivering the same kind of chilling events. Perhaps the reason why it is not as disturbing is the fact that it has less impact, after seeing this sort of thing before I think maybe I was a little less easily shocked. Certainly worth watching, unless of course you hated the first film!!
