October programming continues with the bone-chilling 1976 classic The Omen, beautifully restored in 4k.
Heartbroken over the stillborn death of his child, American diplomat Robert (Gregory Peck) secretly adopts an orphan newborn and passes him off to his wife as their biological son. Naming the boy Damien, they move to England where a series of horrific events occur, making Robert suspicious of who Damien really is. Can Robert stop his son’s reign of terror, or will Damien triumph?
Hailed as one of the best horror films of the 1970’s, The Omen lives up to its reputation with its shocking scares and hauntingly memorable score by Jerry Goldsmith.
