The Omen

666Rating: B+

So yea, I went to the movies on 6/6/06, to see the remake of The Omen. I was surprised to find the theater packed on a Tuesday night, but the full house added to the suspense.

Here’s my quick review: ready?

  • The story takes its time to develop, but its not “slow”.
  • The production design was incredible, with on-location shooting in Italy, London, and Jerusalem.
  • Julia Stiles is one of the better actresses of her generation, and it was interesting to see her play a wife and mother.
  • Why is the Roman Catholic hierarchy always portrayed as evil?
  • Kids are creepy.
  • Mia Farrow is creepy.
  • Why are horror films all edited like The Ring now?
