...the second half of the film, devoid of the cheap thrills and subliminal images that fill the first half, moves along smoothly...

Expected to be disappointed after having been so scared by the original, I was pleased to find the antichrist plot device to be new and exciting again.

A delightful throwback to a time when really good horror movies were more interested in the mystery than the special effects.

Has one of the best on-screen deaths ever put on film...truly grotesque and effective.

This one does a little bit better job of ratcheting up the tension than the first one, which at times seems a little humdrum for a horror flick.

I don't approve of remakes, but The Omen redux is riveting, imaginative and ultimately bone-chillingly satisfying.

If the movie didn't take itself so seriously, it could have been a great popcorn muncher. As is, it'll still work fine for those willing to forgive its trespasses.

It's not pulse-pounding. Not very often, anyway. But it is ominous and smart and more cerebral than your average horror film in these Hostel days.

The devil takes care of business in exactly the same way, as if he's reading from the book of Re-Revelation. But director John Moore has added some creepy visuals and assembled an unusually strong cast for a horror flick.

Future generations can only hope something so nice happens when they get their Omen revival. For now, there's Damien Part Deux. Enjoy him, kids. Chances are, he'll be around for a while.

[Moore] realizes creating an unsettling mood, genuine suspense and fully realized characters is as important -- maybe even more important -- than mere bloodshed.
