2.0 out of 5 stars Brings down the Omen name
They should have stopped making them after the third in the series. Apart from one or two vaguely frightening scenes, there is absolutely no atmosphere in this film: the direction and pacing are more suited to a light-hearted family drama than to a horror.

Some of the music is taken from the brilliant Goldsmith score of the original Omen, but most of the new arrangements are badly put together and along with the hammy acting create an almost comedic effect.

Don't spoil your memory of the artistry of the preceding films.

1.0 out of 5 stars A laugh out loud comedy, 9 April 2010

This review is from: Omen IV: The Awakening (Remastered) [DVD] [0000] (DVD)
Although the Omen film which was released prior to this (The Final Conflict)was by no means a great movie watching Omen 4 has gone some way to rose tinting my glasses in respect of that film. I can't honestly say that I was ever really scared when watching any Omen film but I was atleast a little unnerved at times. This film, on the other hand, sent my emotions in completely the opposite direction. I literally laughed my way through it.
It's awful, truly awful and although it's plot imitates that of the original (presumably hoping to scare by homage, or something) that only serves to make the failings of this movie more obvious. It doesnt help that the film doesn't even attempt to hide it's made for tv origin.
I really got the feeling when watching this that the plot was there merely to link together the death scenes. Come to think of it, I'm not even sure if there were any scenes in the whole movie which weren't death scenes or atleast scenes where the little girl tried to look scary. She really isn't scary either. Unlike Damien, who seemed to kill with some kind of purpose (ie, knocking off a rival or someone who was getting close to discovering the truth about him), Delia seems to kill indiscriminately and with little purpose. Her motive is that she kills people, that's why she kills people.
In a way though this film is worth sitting through just for the laughs. The psychic fair scene is a masterpiece of comedy and the script, combined with atrocious acting, offers up some classic, awful lines ("Her aura!? It's so...so muddy!"). I could almost recommend it on those grounds alone and, you know what, I think I will. The Omen 4 is perhaps the best Omen spoof you will ever see!

3.0 out of 5 stars Reading between the lines, 9 Oct 2010

This review is from: Omen IV: The Awakening (Remastered) [DVD] [0000] (DVD)
Having watched all the Omen films I find The Awakening a variation on the first Omen film. It still follows a biblical theme but you have to know your bible to understand the film and it's meaning. Would watch it again.

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst Omen film, 25 Feb 2008
This review is from: Omen IV: The Awakening (Remastered) [DVD] [0000] (DVD)
I have just watched this and was not impressed, the storyline was very weak, and It's far scarier watching American Idol than this.
Take my advice...don't bother with this film.
Stick to Omen 1 to 3 they were good films.
