The Omen is a horror film that premiered in 1976 and was directed by Richard Donner. Richard Thorn (Gregory Peck), a United States Ambassador to the United Kingdom, and his wife, Katherine Thorn (Lee Remick) are a wealthy family about to have a beautiful baby boy. Although they don't realize it, their baby is switched at birth with the son of the devil. Damien Thorn (Harvey Stephens) is not like other children; he goes through strings of nannies who seem terrified of the young child. One of the nannies even hangs herself in the Thorn home. Richard is informed of the origins of his child, but he cannot comprehend what it means. It is only after more people around the Thorn family die, including Katherine's unborn second child, that Richard realizes he must get to the bottom of his son's evil nature. He searches for Damien's birth mother, but he is unprepared for what he actually finds out about his son. What lengths will Richard be able to go to stop the evil being that he has been raising as his own child? Who else will have to die during Damien's climb to become the Antichrist? The Omen was written by David Seltzer, and was followed by many sequels and even a remake in 2006, called The Omen 666, the 666 being a common reference in the series to the Number of the Beast in the Christian Bible.
