Damien: Omen II Reviews

A terrific follow up to a now cult classic primarily due to the wonderfully creepy performance of it's lead Jonathon Scott-Taylor who apparently hasn't done anything really since.

A real shame about that and how low this film is rated. Enjoyed it immensely.

don't f''k with the devil son. Now 13, an older Damien begins to discover his true destiny as the anti-Christ and is more than willing to accept it. Forces work to stop his power, but can they succeed?. This movie has cool deaths and in my opinion I think this is a good sequel.

Predictable yet watchable follow up. Not as good but a solid sequel

I give this film credit for bringing to play some rather fantastic brutal deaths; which is something I also praised the original for... That aside; the film felt a little flat, by no means was it a dull movie, but it certainly didn't quite meet the first standards! Overall though a sequel worthy of your time (providing you found something to enjoy in the first).

A solid and very underrated sequel that has never gotten it's due.

The Antichrist rises in Damiem: Omen II. Now a teenager enrolled in a prestigious military academy, Damiem learns that he is the Antichrist foretold of in the Book of Revelations. Unfortunately, either because of poor writing or acting, Damiem's journey isn't that interesting. Instead, most of the intrigue lies in the subplot involving the secret cabal that protects Damien. But despite the script issues, the film delivers some intense and disturbing violence. While Damiem: Omen II hits a lot of the same beats as the first film, it's not quite as dark or as ambitious.

It is true that is the worst of Omen trilogy, but it's good to see and past the time. Not so good, but it's no so bad.

Liked it, but not as good as the first.

(1978) Damien: Omen II
HORROR

While watching this movie reminded me that it was more like the first one since you still got that same old crow looking over Damien- like he can be two places at once or that it's several different crows looking over him and so forth. And the people who're most closest to Damien as well who're catching on to who he really is get killed in never-shown-before fashion even though there's like a trend where if anyone were to hang around with him will eventually get themselves killed one way or another. The movie continues where the last one had finished where he gets taken in this time by the deceased's brother and his wife, Richard Thorn played by veteran actor William Holden and Ann played by Lee Grant. The aunt is the first victim of the family to get herself killed who owns a percent of a huge family fortune Richard is supposed to inherit and then so on. Along with Damien they also send their biological son to the military academy together even though the aunt forbids them to be associated with one another. If theirs any difference between the first and the second one, it's that because he's starting to grow up, he's starting to know more about himself with the help of their Sargent played by Lance Henrickson. So, even though he want to be good he can't for he's not allowed to. There's also a little twist in regards to Richard's wife Ann at the end it's kind of dumb because it's like Damien's got the entire world locked under his feet.

2 out of 4 stars

It's a decent sequel, but it fails in comparison to the first. Couldn't they have picked a more interesting setting? The death scenes are alright, and still retain a level of shock. The characters are more or less generic, and Damien isn't too interesting on his own. Bit of a lackluster of an ending, yet it still holds chills.
October 9, 2013
Another booooooooring old horror flick. Well at least it's more thrilling and more dynamic then the original. Though still you clearly realise that the story is something of an insignificant mess made only to make another movie.
June 8, 2013
This movie is a great horror film!
April 10, 2013
This just didn't feel much like a horror/suspense movie. The first one had great feelings of mystery and suspense but this one was more like a family drama with random horrible deaths in it. The soundtrack was quite good but other than that this film just wasn't there.

Wasn't nearly as good as the first one but the Mesach Taylor death almost makes it worthwhile

Nowhere near as good as the first, nor as interesting as the third.

Final Destination owes more than a tilt to this movie

Not the strongest episode of the triology, but innovative in showing the protagonist as an adolescent boy. The acting is intriguing throughout, and visually, this part of the trilogy does have some strong images. Unfortunately the music is rather badly recorded (it was in mono on my dvd), and the commentary by the producer is full of the kinds of things you either don't bother to say in the name of boredom, or in the name of good manners, shouldn't say.Final Destination owes more than a tilt to this movie, in my view.

Damien Thorn is placed in the care of his uncle, the owner of Thorn Industries, after the untimely deaths of his parents. As he approaches his thirteenth birthday, the demonic forces at work will stop at nothing to see the Antichrist rise to power, meaning death to all those who oppose him! The next thrilling chapter in THE OMEN series is an excellent continuation of Damien's story. Damien is just coming to understand his own powers, but he has not yet accepted the role of the destructor. As a budding adolescent, he is caught between the innocence of childhood and the unholy destiny that awaits him. Jonathan Scott-Taylor embodies these dual personas beautifully, allowing the audience to relate to the unfortunate circumstances that surround him though they despise the growing evil that dwells within him. This is only achieved through Don Taylor's deliberately slow pace and a character-driven story arch. Academy Award winner William Holden also offers a dignified performance as Richard Thorn, while Jerry Goldsmith returns with another powerful score. The scene is now set for the Antichrist to come to full power in THE OMEN 3: FINAL CONFLICT.

Damien is now thirteen and spending his time now with his cousin at a military school. He eventually learns of his actual destiny by more disciples of Satan. Meanwhile, dark forces begin to eliminate those who may pose a threat to Damien's rise of power.

This is a pretty good sequel actually, not great, but pretty good. It's better than a sequel like Halloween II or something.

The pacing is definitely quicker than the first, and the kills are actually pretty good. Some are boring, but the pleasantly gruesome ones outweigh the bad.

The acting for this series is still horrid, but the great score by Jerry Goldsmith is borrowed from the first, which helps its fairly pleasant effectiveness.

It's practically that same premise from the first, and don't forget that the Omen series has never known the physical meaning of the word "climax" which can get quite irritating. This series is a prime example of why sometimes the ending isn't the best part (but at least this one tries to be edgy, but in a pretty lame way).

William Holden, Lee Grant, Jonathan Scott-Taylor, Robert Foxworth, Nicholas Pryor, Lew Ayres and Sylvia Sidney headline Damien: Omen II.

This is pretty good for a sequel, but it still isn't anything special. It doesn't offer anything groundbreaking, but at least the film isn't mind-numbing. Even though this wasn't scary at all, and at times I forgot that it was trying to be a horror film. At least it still has that great and effective score.
