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?
