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.

It's well made, but if you've seen the original one, you've seen the best one.

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.
