Three Classic Movies,
This review is from: The Omen Trilogy Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
THE OMEN is a true classic. Rather than using blood and gore, it creates atmosphere by music and and panning in on the eyes of the actor or actoress. This style is unique and scary. the plot of the film is portrayed well and slowly fills in the gaps as the movies goes along, to the rather moving finale. A must have for classic/horror movie buff. The DVD itself is packed with some interesting special features, such as a docmentary and commentary by Richard Donner.
DAMIEN: OMEN II This is the first sequal to THE OMEN TRILOGY and is uses many of the scare tactics from the first, with some unique ones of its own. The photography of many scenes in the film is interesting and has, as always that quality feel. The story takes a while to pick up. This film is like the first a true classic. The features on this DVD are commentary by producer Harvey Bernhard and all three OMEN trailers. A bit more could have been added but still a great film and DVD.
OMEN III: THE FINAL CONFILCT this film is truly brillant as it mixes gore with the shock and scare tactics of the previous two. The films scares and plot are spot on. It also has some interesting special effects. This movie has a classic to it also, and as before has quality. A excellent sequal. The DVD features include commentary by directer Graham Baker nad all three OMEN trailers. Some more features could have been added.
Overall a brillant and classic trilogy that is well worth the money.
