"The omen is a really good and creepy anti-Christ flick with amazing music! Being as descended as I am this movie still was able to shock me in some scenes! Also I can’t go with talking about the creepy kid..the 70s was really good with creepy kids..and this kid is super creepy. I respect the door opened by this movie. 👍🏻"
"3.5 stars Gregory peck and lee remick lended credibility to this I think. "
"A post in honor of the spookiest season: Sometimes, our preconceived notions can prevent us from encountering something we really enjoy. I saw The Exorcist a while back. I liked it well enough, but it felt a little shallow to me, honestly. Later, I randomly decided to give The Omen a try. I knew it was often compared to The Exorcist, but I knew I liked Gregory Peck in absolutely everything, so I gave it a shot. I was shocked, honestly. I love this movie. It's one of my favorite movies. It has such strange, off-putting cinematography, burns so slowly, and its symbolism is so much stronger than I expected. The revelations hit hard, and there is only 1 scene with a poorly aged set. I'm also completely sure that Kubrick saw and probably liked this movie, considering the scene of a small child with a brown bowl-cut riding a tricycle around the big halls of his family mansion."

"Probably the only horror series where I'd suggest going down the rabbit hole and watching all three for a complete story. For me, the sequel was just as good as the first, and the third lacks a bit, but it completes the story of Damien...and you'll never look at Sam Niell/Jurrasic Park the same way again."
