Long Live Damien Thorn!

Who Am I?

Wow, for the first time I get a chance to freely express my slightly obsessive devotion to the Trilogy known as Omen. For all of you that know the series, yes, I know there was a fourth one with a girl named Delia, but that is sacriledge in my eyes. Omen shouldn't have went the path it did, considering Damien wasn't dead (idiots!). But that will have to wait until I get to The Final Conflict in my rants.

Chances are, Omen (the first one) will have very little writings about, since of the original three it was my least favorite- probably cause Gregory Peck had to play a wuss who couldn't kill a child, up and until the wife died. Damien (Omen II) will have many writings on, as it has Lance in it as Sergeant Neff (can't go wrong there!) and explains the antichrist as a teen and how he discovers who he is. The Final Conflict (Omen III...duh) is also high on my list, number two really just because Damien dies when he shouldn't have. So when I get to those two movies, be sure to keep coming back because I will have many things to say, and a lot of characters to praise and despise. And yes, I will be doing my own rants on Armageddon. The Abomination also known as Delia- she who must not be named (aka by me as 'It').

So sit back, relax, and join me as I delve into... The Omen Zone *insert Main Theme here*

Excellent! I have to admit to the these films scared me senseless when I was a young child. I recall watching them alone in my bedroom, hiding under the covers!

Amazingly powerful and scary even today. The idea of an invisible supernatural marker slowly making its way toward the doomed that was seen only in photographs was sheer brilliance and scared me half to death. As did the seen with the crow attacking the woman on the lonely road.

I honestly believe Millennium's third season episode Antipas was an open and appreciate homage to the Omen films. I avoid them on TV because they still scare me at 38.

Looking forward to reading your blog!

I totally agree with the chief that they are absolutely chilling movies. My abiding memory of the franchise is the somewhat disturbing scene in which the young boy (if I recall correctly) is trapped beneath the ice and dragged by an unseen force as people desperately fight to save him. Absolutely spine chilling stuff and the absolute worst way to go. Special nod to Patrick Troughton of Who fame who was just superb as Father Brennan, a really convincing piece of acting.

Actually, the scene that you're describing isn't with a young boy. The character that gets iced (no pun intended) was Bill Atherton, an old man that stood in the way of making Thorn Industries in control of the Antichrist. Had Bill gotten in charge, chances are he would have fired Paul Buher and we couldn't have that. According to the Damien: Omen II script though, they end up finding the body lodged between to wood poles at the boat house. Just wait til I get to that point. :clapping:

Where for art thou Who Am I?

I missing your Neff laced, quirky posts and you assistance on the Back to Frank Black Project. I might have to send out a search party, who knows Lucy Butler might have you in a room listening to 'Love is Blue'
