Day 21 of my Horror Film Marathon

Omen III: The Final Conflict

Damien Thorn is now 32 years old and the Ambassador to England.  A group of monks are trying to exterminate him, while he tries to locate and kill the reborn Christ child. Sam Neill plays Damien, in his first Hollywood lead role.  Definitely not as good as the first film, though it was a good wrap up to the Omen Trilogy.  A fourth, made-for-TV movie came out 10 years later.

Interesting artifacts:

1.  The footage of the White House was actually taken from the movie Superman II.

2.  Jack Nicholson, Gene Hackman and Marlon Brando were all considered for the role of Damien Thorn.


  1. We're lacking some movie reviews here - did this one scare you so bad that you abandoned the project?

  2. I'm working my way up to a big finale. I wanted to keep all of the top 100 covers together uninterrupted, so that's why there hasn't been any movie reviews. keep your eyes out either tomorrow night or on saturday! :)
