From Amazon.co.uk

In 1976 The Omen scored a hit with critics and audiences hungry for more after The Exorcist with its mixture of Gothic horror and mystery and its plot about a young boy suspected of being the personification of the anti-Christ. Directed by Richard Donner (best known for his Superman and Lethal Weapon films), The Omen gained a lot of credibility from the casting of Gregory Peck and Lee Remick as a distinguished American couple living in England, whose young son Damien bears "the mark of the beast". At a time when graphic gore had yet to dominate the horror genre, this film used its violence discreetly and to great effect and the mood of dread and potential death is masterfully maintained. It's all a bit contrived, with a lot of biblical portent and sensational fury but few would deny it's highly entertaining. Jerry Goldsmith's Oscar-winning score works wonders to enhance the movie's creepy atmosphere. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

Damien: Omen II takes place several years after the mysterious events that claimed the life of the US Ambassador and his wife as 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 raises some interesting questions about the nature of free will (can the anti-Christ 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. --Andrew Wright, Amazon.com

The series concludes with The Omen III: The Final Conflict, starring Sam Neill as the adult Damien--aka the son of Satan--in a battle with the heavens for control of mankind. The film ends up depending more heavily on effects and spectacle than on the kind of basic horrors that made the first movie in the series so unsettling but at least this one gives some closure to the seemingly endless saga. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com

On the DVDs: On the original movie disc there is an all-new 45-minute documentary, "666: The Omen Revealed", with contributions from all the major behind-the-scenes players, including director, editor, screenwriter (who confesses the movie was only set in England because he wanted a free trip to London!), producer and composer. The latter, Jerry Goldsmith, has his Oscar-winning contribution to the movie recognised with a separate feature in which he talks through four key musical scenes in the score. There's also a thought-provoking short called "Curse or Coincidence?" in which the many bizarre accidents that happened during shooting are related, including the terrible story of what happened to the girlfriend of the man responsible for designing the decapitation scene. Director Richard Donner and editor Stuart Baird provide a chatty audio commentary to the movie. The second and third films lack as many extra features, being content with audio commentaries and theatrical trailers: the commentary for Omen II is by producer Harvey Bernhard, that for Omen III by director Graham Baker. --Mark Walker

Product Description

Triple bill featuring the first three 'Omen' films. 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 (Harvey Stephens), seems to be exerting a malevolent influence on the Thorn household, suffering a violent fit when he is taken to church and causing his nanny to hang herself. 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 and must be stopped at all costs. The Ambassador at first dismisses this as the crazy rantings of a religious maniac, but subsequent events suggest that maybe the priest had a point. The second film, 'Damien - Omen 2' (1978), picks up events a few years later, with the now-orphaned Damien (Jonathan Scott-Taylor) turning 13 and living with his adoring aunt and uncle. Aunt Marion (Lee Grant) is the first to suspect there is more to the young devil 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 Damien (Sam Neill) 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.

By A Customer
Format:DVD
wow i bought this on it day of release and i was really surprised by how truly amazing these films were. they flow into each ovther beautifully, have great soundtracks that really scare you and the actinbg is brilliant, every actor who plays damien (harvey stephens, jonathon scott-taylor and sam neill) plays him brilliantly, plus great acting performances by gregory peck, lee remick and william holden. the box set is really nice to, it opens up into the shape of a crucifix which the makers ave definetely spent time on, and there time has paid off well. buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Omen - Great! 28 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Pure brilliance. Closely inspired by the hit film The Exorcist, the Omen is a film that introduces us to Damien, the AntiChrist born on earth to battle with good in order to gain dominance over mankind. Gregory Peck is outstanding as the 'father' Robert Thorn, the ambassador to great Britain. All in all this is a great film for anyone who likes the gothic horror genre. The other two films are by standard not as good as the original but they are good in their own way. If you're gonna buy the Omen on DVD, you may as well buy the trilogy to see how the story unfolds. Luckily, they've left Omen IV: The Awakening out. This made for TV film really let the saga down and threfore is not worthy to be included in one of the finest box sets to ever be released on DVD. Buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars BLU-RAY is Excellent!!! 16 April 2014
By Pantheon TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
At the current price this set is a must-have for any blu-ray/film collector. I think this the best these films have ever looked and they are a massive improvement over the DVD versions. There are a few scenes that have some fuzziness and soft focus - but that's a filming choice and nothing to do with the mastering and even those scenes look better than the DVD.
The extras are primarily on The Omen and are quite comprehensive and well worth watching.

As for The Final Conflict being cut - well, if it is, I didn't notice it.

Also according to this site: [...] there are no cuts on the DVD either; so I seriously doubt if there are any cuts for the blu-ray.
I've searched the web for evidence of cuts and cannot find any. Sorry.

It's taken me forever to buy this set because of the reviews saying the picture was bad the final film being cut. Once again I'm so glad I did more research and took the risk.

4.0 out of 5 stars From the eternal sea He rises 20 May 2010
Format:Blu-ray
First of all let me just say, these films are cult. The transfers are nice and eventhough the audio isn't that great on the sequals at times it's a must own for BD fans. And luckily the coaster, I mean remake is absent.
But I have a gripe with this release as with many blu-ray releases in the UK. They're not the UK versions like the DVD's, but the US ones. Whereas the BBFC may pass a film without sensoring it, the American MPAA might just cut it in their R-rated versions. Now we are stuck over here in Europe with ridiculous US sensoring. How can a foreign sensoring agency hold sway over domesticly released content? Is this even legal? Why are European governments not responding?
ANYWAYS, the Blu-ray of The Final Conflict is sensored. A scene is clearly cut that is present in the previous remaster DVD UK boxset. Whether the first two films are cut I couldn't tell at first glance and since I don't own the DVD's anymore I can't do a comparison.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's all for you, Damien! 23 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
A small decrease in standard as they progress doesn't alter the fact that the Omen trilogy is one of the darkest sagas I have ever seen. And now they have arrived (or are due to arrive) on DVD, I can't wait to buy it, as I see it an essential edition to my ever-growing DVD collection..... The first one, the Omen, is the best, with an American Diplomat (Gregory Peck) adopting a son (Damien) after the recent death of his newborn child, unknown to his wife who believes Damien to be her own. Mysterious deaths start occuring as surrounding friends and family begin to suspect and learn of the truth. The decapitation scene is particulary haunting. The best in the trilogy.
Damien: Omen II takes place seven years later when Damien is approaching his teens. He hasn't yet realised who he is but he discovers his destiny halfway through the film. Once again, unexplainable deaths start occuring but his new 'parents' - his aunt and uncle - refuse to believe what they hear. Watch out for the ice hockey event and the doctor in the lift....
The final film in the saga, The Final Conflict, brings about the final showdown between good and evil. Damien is now president of the company that he has inherited from his family; he discovers that a group of European priests have found the seven daggers which are the only thing on Earth which can destroy him. The film looks at the arrival of the second coming, and there's an unfortunate slaughter of baby boys late on in the film as Damien intends to kill him, a la King Herod. A particulary good scene is on the bridge during the hunt - two priests attempt to assassinate Damien but fail in their attempt.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent film - but where was the menu? 5 Mar 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Having carelessly bought the remake and been greatly disappointed, I was glad to see this classic occult horror. The film is too well-known to need my comments. However, despite the sleeve details and unlike other Blu-rays, the DVD went straight into playing the main feature and the menu was nowhere to be found (despite several subsequent searches). Perhaps it was a dud copy.
