Damien---Omen II Reviews
A real shame about that and how low this film is rated. Enjoyed it immensely.
(1978) Damien: Omen II
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.
