Movie Review: The Omen

I had seen the remake, but I had never seen the original version. It’s really good for 1976. It’s got the perfect amount of gore, scary music, photography, and the movie itself is actually terrifying. If you’re a horror fan like me, you know that some horror movies can be scary, creepy, campy, bad, have jump scares, but this one is terrifying without trying too hard. Great acting from Gregory Peck, no surprise there. The musical score of this film is so amazing it won an Academy award and I will second that statement. I’m not too sure why all the other remakes, sequels, and rip-offs suck since this one is so good. Overall, it’s just a really well-done film for the horror genre.

I love horror movies, and this is a great horror movie. It’s probably one of the best and most famous movies of its time. If you watch only one film from 1976, let it be this one. It’s a tragedy how far the horror genre has fallen since then. I’m not easily scared, and I wasn’t expecting much because of what I had seen in pop culture. This just happened to be a case of nobody else could top this movie and no one could do it justice. I’ve seen more than enough horror movies to know this is one the best of that year if not the entire decade, considering it took a long time for horror movies to be considered mainstream movies.

This movie made $60 million which was a lot of money back then. Carrie by Stephen King also came out this year and it’s hard to say which one is scarier. I would honestly say The Omen is scarier in my opinion, and I might consider it to be the best horror movie of all time. I would have to do a lot more research to find out if that’s really true or not.

My score: 9/10
