Damien: Omen II

Stigmata

FACT: For millions, the Bible is a wellspring of hope and inspiration for daily living. FACT: For decades, horror filmmakers have also turned to the Bible and Biblical lore for inspiration. Why?

When the calendar page turns to October, we Rejects have only one thought: horror. To celebrate this grandest and darkest of months, we’ll cover one excellent horror film a day for the entirety of the month. That’s 31 Days of Horror and 31 Films perfect for viewing on a dark, chilly, October night. If you, like us, love horror and Halloween, give us a Hell Yeah and keep coming every day this month for a new dose of adrenaline. Synopsis: Damien Thorn’s dad is the ultimate helicopter parent. An influential guy, his dad’s always been there, pulling strings to get him into the best schools and keep him on the path to success. Trouble is, Damien’s dad happens to be Satan. This explains why people who threaten or just annoy Damien have a tendency to die excruciating and mysterious deaths. In the second installment of the Omen series, 12-year-old Damien has been adopted by his wealthy (human) aunt and uncle. He enrolls in a military academy with his best friend and cousin, Mark. It’s here where Damien discovers his true bloodline, and must accept his diabolical fate.
