Love this classic!

by Michael R. on 6/15/2015

I owned this movie on VHS tape for years, but it really never was from a good master copy to begin with. But this Remastered copy of the movie is night and day, great picture quality and especially sound. I will re-enjot this again, and again for sure!

Review The Omen is regarded as a horror classic, although I have never been able to figure out why Richard Donner's second-rate exploitation flick has been accorded such a lofty status. Since the 2006 re-make is almost identical to its predecessor (even using essentially the same script), there's no reason to expect me to think more highly of this film. To the extent that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the crew behind the original might be expected to blush...It's hard to guess who the projected audience is for The Omen. Maybe the only reason the film was made is because someone thought up a good marketing ploy for opening day (6/6/06, which replicates the "666" Sign of the Beast). The R-rating locks out the teenage crowd, who are today's biggest consumers of PG-13 horror. It's hard to imagine college age movie goers being attracted by such a passe premise. And fans of the original will end up doing shot-by-shot comparisons. On every level, The Omen isn't just bad filmmaking, it's bad storytelling.

Review "The Omen" is a faithful remake of the 1976 film, and that's a relief; it depends on characters and situations and doesn't go berserk with visuals...All of this is done with mood and style by director John Moore ("Behind Enemy Lines"), who knows that the story itself is engrossing enough that we don't need "X-Men" stuff in the visuals. Liev Schreiber is, I think, a good choice for Ambassador Thorn; he is readier to fear the worst than Gregory Peck, who played the role in 1976. Mia Farrow is never creepier than when she's at her most sweetly reassuring. Julia Stiles has a difficult role; how can a mother want her own child dead, even if he is the Antichrist? I guess that's a question that answers itself...The British character actors (Thewlis, Gambon, Postlethwaite) bring so much creepy atmosphere onto the screen that they could have walked right over from the matinee performance of "Nosferatu." It was George Orwell who said, "At 50, everyone has the face he deserves." We can only marvel at what they must have done to deserve theirs.

Quotes
Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer The Omen remake is creepily efficient.
Kyle Smith, New York Post Director John Moore has added some creepy visuals and assembled an unusually strong cast...
Pete Vonder Haar, Film Threat Seriously, that kid is creepy as hell.
Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle ...[Davey-Fitzpatrick] is beyond perfect...the look on his face is more frightening than all the scary scenes in "Silent Hill" and "An American Haunting" put together...
Stephen Hunter, Washington Post ...smooth, stylish, clever, soulless and a hoot.
