"An Absolutely Riveting Thoroughly Scary Experience!" -Los Angeles Times
When Kathy Thorn (Lee Remick) gives birth to a stillborn baby, her husband Robert (Gregory Peck) shields her from he devastating truth and substitutes an orphaned infant for their own - unaware of the child's satanic origins.
The horror begins on Damien's fifth birthday when his nanny stages a dramatic suicide. Soon after, a priest who tries to warn Damien's father is killed in a freakish accident. As the death toll mounts, Robert realizes his son is the Antichrist and decides he must kill the boy to prevent him from fulfilling a cataclysmic prophecy.
Briskly paced and breathtakingly evil, The Omen is the first film in a classic four-part legacy of terror.
