Robert and Katherine Thorn are as loving of parents as any young boy could ask for, but as fate would have it, their new son Damien is far from the typical child. As the mysterious boy's growth begins to share frightening parallels with the Biblical passages detailing the rise of the Antichrist, and the lives of all who seek to reveal his true nature are cut gruesomely short, Robert and Katherine are forced to face the horrifying prospect that their child has been sent from Satan to hasten the fall of modern civilization, and that there is little they can do to curb his prophesied path of ultimate destruction.

Why was this remake necessary? What were the shortcomings of the original Gregory Peck, Lee Remick version that needed to be addressed? The plot development is virtually identical and neither the acting, the direction nor the soundtrack are significantly better than the 1975 version, so the whole exercise seems pointless. Why build a second statue of liberty or a new Egyptian pyramid? BTW the actor portraying Damien (Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick) has blue eyes (double recessive gene) whereas Julia Styles (who plays Katherine Thorn) has brown eyes. Wouldn't this have clued her in to the fact that she wasn't Damien's biological mother?

I consider this movie one of the best horror films ever made. The mysteries surrounding Damien were incredibly suspenseful, and kept me at the edge of my seat. The movie revived Gregory Peck's career, and spawned many other films in the "Antichrist" sub-genre of horror films. Jerry Goldsmith's score is my absolute favorite horror movie score.
