Very few directors dare to make remake and one out of hundreds dare to touch horror genre for the remake.The year 1976 saw successful 'The Omen' It is regarded as Classic Horror by many. Director John Moore decided to give his touch to omen and he did it quite well with the new techniques of film making.

The tagline is ‘The prophecy is clear. The signs are unmistakable. On the 6th day, of the 6th month, in the year 2006...his day will come.’ As its original one the remake is very scary and creepy.

It is the story of a young boy named Damien. Damien is the adopted son of an American diplomat and his wife. The catastrophic and scary events expose the terrifying truth that he is destined to become the Anti-Christ.
