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.
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.
