Yesterday at Comic-Con San Diego, A&E revealed a trailer for their upcoming show, Damien. Based on the 1976 iconic, horror film 'The Omen', Damien takes place 25 years after the events of the first Omen movie. Although there have been a sequel and threequel to original film, Damien takes its direction mainly from the first movie. Check out the trailer below:
Original set to show on the Lifetime Network, Damien has been picked up by A&E for 10 episodes.
The Omen was such an iconic movie and is considered one of the best horror films because it pushed the boundaries in the horror genre. From the film's music, which won an Oscar, to the horrifying sequences, The Omen was a successfully crafted film. For me, films that deal with religious themes and pry into the supernatural are the most frightening. Even my dad, whose used to own a video rental shop, has told me that The Omen is the scariest movie he has ever seen. In contrast, I would have to say The Exorcist was the scariest movie I've ever seen. Guys, growing up Catholic and watching that movie was one of the worst decisions ever. Even if you're not religious, it's some really intense shit! But go for it if you're brave!
Although I haven't seen the original 'the Omen' ( I'm still too scared), this tv series does look extremely interesting and unusual! The show will center around Damien Thorn who comes to terms with the fact that he is the anti-christ. I can't wait to see how they portray Damien Thorn as an adult and the conflicts that have been brewing throughout the last 25 years.
