31 Days of Horror (Day 6)
31 Days of Horror
6. The Omen
You know, I just realized that for my sixth movie in this series, it's about a movie that heavily features the number 6. That was not on purpose but I suppose it worked out quite nicely. Hell, even look at the above poster. So many 6's.
Anyway, I haven't seen this movie in 10+ years and even then I believe I saw it on TV, so this was really my first legitimate experience with the film. Let me just say: Wow. What an awesome movie. I just love how the story unfolds. It does so in a way that is extremely appealing to me. I love when the woman hangs herself, there's no set-up. You don't see her climb to the roof. You don't see her put the noose around her neck. A lesser director would have included this to add tension but not here. Instead you just hear her voice yell out for Damien, trying to get his attention before proclaiming "It's all for you..." Perfect.
