Product Description

The ultimate Omen box set containing the original film, the three sequels, and the 2006 remake. The saga begins with 'The Omen' (1976), when US Ambassador Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck) is persuaded to substitute a newborn baby whose mother has died in childbirth for his own stillborn son. By the age of five the child, Damien, seems to be exerting a malevolent influence on the Thorn household. Thorn searches for an answer to his son's behaviour and meets maverick priest Father Brennan (Patrick Troughton), who tries to convince him that Damien is in fact the Antichrist. The Ambassador at first dismisses this as the rantings of a religious maniac, but subsequent events suggest that maybe the priest has a point. The second film, 'Damien - Omen 2' (1978), picks up events a few years later, with the now-orphaned Damien turning 13 and living with his adoring aunt and uncle. Aunt Marion (Lee Grant) is the first to suspect there is more to Damien than adolescent angst, leading to her swift dispatch by a killer raven. As for Damien, he is making his mark at military school, and is dismayed to discover his true demonic identity - but not for long. The third film, 'Omen 3 - The Final Conflict' (1981), finds the young devil all grown up and heading a multinational company. He is about to be appointed US Ambassador to England, a position which will enable him to take over the world and thus fulfil the terrible forecasts of scripture. But there is opposition in the form of a bunch of monks with sacred daggers who will do everything necessary to prevent Satan's enthronement. In 'Omen 4 - The Awakening' (1991), although the Anti-Christ Damien expired in 'The Final Conflict', he had a daughter who has been adopted by an aspiring politician and his wife. As she grows up she begins to exercise her evil powers in a series of bizarre 'accidents'. In the 2006 remake, Liev Schreiber stars as Robert Thorn, with Julia Stiles as his wife, as the conflicted couple gradually come to realise that their child Damien (Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick) is the son of Satan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Missing product information on Amazon.co.uk 10 Sep 2008
Received the box set today and haven't actually seen the DVD movies yet, however I were slightly worried if all the DVD's from the box-set would all be in widescreen as I wanted them to be, and I found it annoying that no aspect ratio information were given on the Amazon.co.uk site.
So just in case others like I should wish for more information then I can infom you that it on the box-set says that all main features has english subtitles for the hearing impaired and more specifically for each DVD movie it says :

Omen I (2 disc, 30th Anniversary) is in approximately aspect ratio 2.35:1 and sound : English 5.1 and English 2.0 stereo
Omen II is in approximately aspect ratio 2.35:1 and sound : English 2.0 surround
Omen III is in approximately aspect ratio 2.35:1 and sound : English 2.0 surround
Omen IV is in approximately aspect ratio 1.85:1 and sound : English 4.0 stereo
Omen 666 is in approximately aspect ratio 1.85:1 and sound : English 5.1, English 5.1 DTS, English 5.1 Audio Description

I missed the above specific information, hope that you can use it for purchase decision making.

Regards

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Treat for Horror Fans 25 Oct 2006
I have to admit that I'm a big fan of the original film: 'The Omen' (1976). It is quite psychological and centred on the unravelling of the perfect, controlled lives of the central couple. It also touches on the hypocrisy of the apparently solid, strong central character Robert Thorn (played by Gregory Peck). As such it doesn't depend on gore or flashy effects. Many of the performances, like the Satanic Nanny, are understated but filled with menace.

This pentology is not just about the first film, however, it is pretty much exhaustive. Not only does it have the first, second and third film but the remake of the first and made for TV film, 'The Awakening'. If that is not enough you get alternate endings, a featurette on the Omen Curse, the omen music and alternative commentaries (amongst much more). If you are not an expert on 'The Omen' after watching all this then something is wrong with you.

I learned a lot by viewing the bundle. I didn't realise how comparatively small the budget was on the first movie (two and a half million US$) and how the money made had helped to finance George Lucas! The Curse or Coincidence featurette was quite scary. Sometimes I wonder if evil is just an absence of good or a positive (if that's the right word!) force in its own right. Planes getting struck by lightning, accidents during filming - it's all pretty creepy and thought provoking.

The price seems a lot to fork out but really when you consider how much material is here you are getting a pretty good deal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Deteriorating quality 16 Feb 2009
The Omen is one of the finest horror films ever made and even after over 30 years it still a powerfully effective and chilling film, with a superbly foreboding atmosphere and a stunning musical score. The acting by al the cast is first-rate and the various deaths are diabolically imaginative and well-executed. The sequels however are increasingly inferior, Damien Omen 2 is a worthy effort, but the performances are very wooden and the story pedestrian while the over-the-top deaths just feel like they're trying to out do the original with diminishing results. Omen 3 sees Sam Neill hamming it up as the adult Damien, a bunch of pathetically hopeless monks trying to kill the antichrist and one of the most ludicrous and nauseating endings I've ever seen. Omen 4 is the worst of the lot, a dire TV movie made years later with a little girl as the new Damien (called Delia!) and a story that's just a dull rehash of the original. A complete waste of time. Then we also get the 2006 remake - one question: why? It's inferior in every respect. So really, only the first film is worth bothering with, Omen 2 and 3 are just about watchable, but save a few hours of your life and give Omen 4 and the remake a miss.

The Omen 5 stars !!!!!!!!! Original and well done.
Gradually getting worse and far fetched by each sequel.
Omen 3 with the little girl in the USA, is crap !!

The 2006 remake, is a word for word remake of the original. I see no point in watch this one. The original has more 'authenticity' to it.

So for me , just watch The Omen and the first sequel.
