Wrong number of the beast

If only... they'd remade Omen III instead of the first movie. John Patterson makes a satanic cinema request

Saturday June 3, 2006
The Guardian


Typical. They remade the wrong Omen. Back in 1976, The Omen was just the biggest hit in a wave of mediocre occult thrillers, like Audrey Rose or Burnt Offerings, that came in the wake of The Exorcist. The Omen had bigger stars - Gregory Peck, Lee Remick, David Warner - a bigger budget and bigger pretensions. Which meant that it wasn't content merely to rifle through The Exorcist for inspiration, it also went after Rosemary's Baby's main innovation: Satan got laid. And there were consequences.

With its full complement of hangings, beheadings, and diabolical footstomping from the bratty firstborn of Beelzebub, The Omen was a passable thriller in its day, but why it deserves to be remade is a mystery. Possibly some studio marketeer figured that a remake might snag a little of the god-fearing overflow audience from The Da Vinci Code, if released in a timely manner.
But the second sequel, Omen III: The Final Conflict, in which Damien is all grown up and intent upon becoming president, is your money Omen when the remake hour is upon us. Especially if you believe you should only remake rubbish, because then there's more room for improvement than for failure. Lots of room for improvement in Final Conflict, which appeared in 1981 - just after Ronald Reagan became president. I remember thinking there was something deliciously prescient about the timing of its release even then.

In Omen III, Damien has blossomed into a young Sam Neill, and is now head of his family's industrial conglomerate, which he's using as a springboard to the presidency - a lot like Halliburton, I guess - the better to bring about the Apocalypse. It's impressive that in order to achieve this, the devil still has to get elected. Touching to learn of Satan's abiding faith in democratic institutions.

Now, elsewhere in the plot there's a cadre of fightin' priests with seven holy daggers to plant in Damien's back. But forget about them, and the main body of the story could be updated without major alteration to unfold in the White House of 2006, a place already dense with religious nuts desperate to replay that scene in The Dead Zone when crazy President Martin Sheen, in a most unBartletian slip, hits the big red nuclear button and barmily announces, "Gentlemen, the missiles are flying!"

So it's possible to see Omen III: The Final Reckoning as either a highly prescient documentary - even the bit about killing all the male children born between midnight and 6am on a certain night - or as an inspirational political-strategy movie that at some point persuaded Karl Rove and the neo-cons to set realistic goals for attaining the ultimate political prize. Here we are, right on schedule. Apocalypse time!

no way they could create that kind of atmosphere with the remake... " hey you know what else could be made again??" *pushes on button on shit making machine*

the fact that Peck's son committed suicide a couple years previous just bumps up intensity level
