Horror movie fans are forever searching for that really scary film that makes their spine tingle and hair stand on end. Sometimes the films they are able to find are good stuff that are quite entertaining and suspense filled. But quite often, these films don’t quite deliver that deep thrill and horrific tingle that we’ve come to expect.
What if I were to tell you that if you’re looking for the scariest horror film ever, you’d have to go back to the year 1976! Yes, you saw right. But what’s so special about that year? Well, that was the year the most terrifying flick ever, was released to the unsuspecting horror fans. They lived never to forget it.
The name of this cool customer is “The Omen” (Not the remake Please!) The original.
The story Follows American Ambassador Robert Thorn(Peck) whose wife loses a child at birth. A creepy priest offers the Thorns an adorable Child to adopt. They accept; It is the biggest mistake they will ever make.
They name the child Damien.
All seems great and rosy until the child’s first birthday when his nanny commits suicide, and a desperate and terrified priest with real knowledge of what the child really is, comes forward to tell the Thorns the truth about their cute looking kid.
Of course they don’t take it very well. They ignore the priest and his ‘rambling lies’.
As the incidents and revelations start to really emerge, the fact that their precious child is the Spawn of Satan with the 666 mark of the beast, finally dawns on the horrified parents.
The critically acclaimed performances, including the performance of little Harvey Stephens as Damien is outstanding. His depiction of corrupted innocence is both convincing and terrifying.
And the haunting Oscar winning sound track by the legendary Jerry Goldsmith, is probably the scariest thing you’ve ever heard in your life.
Don’t take my word for it; go see this movie and tell me what you think.
