Can you help me with the name of this movie (details inside)

Asked by Mimishu1995 (7043 points ) 1 month ago

Here’s the plot as I remember it (it’s a horror movie): there is a man whose wife gave birth to a boy. The boy looks like your run-on-the-mill child, nothing seems odd about him. One day, a priest meets the man, telling him that the boy is actually destined to be some kind of devil. The man doesn’t believe it and walks away, only to discover some time later that the priest is mysteriously killed. Then the wife has some accident and has to be admitted to the hospital. There is an old woman in the house (possibly a maid) who is very close to the boy. Soon after the wife gets to hospital, she goes there and kills the wife. The man begins to reconsider what the priest says and ask a friend for help. But then the friend is also killed. The man finds out that the boy is really a devil, and his real son was killed when he was unborn and replaced by the devil boy. The man gets back to get the boy and drive him to a church. When he attempts to kill the boy, he is shot by a policewoman.

Do you know which movie I am talking about?

Thanks everyone. I think that’s it :)

@filmfann I’m not sure which version it is. I watched it a long time ago, with my family. That movie scared the heck out of my brother.

The first Omen, indeed. It’s a good movie, but unless you’re an obsessed horror fan like me, I would avoid the sequels.

Was this a fucking wind up? Clearly, it was The Omen.
@Symbeline I thought the second one was quite good, the teenage Damien looked a proper little shit.

The expression is “run-of-the-mill”, by the way. Meaning it’s just the same as everything else the factory (“the mill”) puts out.

@ucme Oh don’t get me wrong, I enjoy them; but as continuity, it’s pretty damn sad lol.

ucme's avatar

@Symbeline If we’re talking piss poor continuity, look no further than Halloween III… :(

Symbeline's avatar

@ucme Er…yeah. Nothing can beat that one…coupled with an atrocious theme song, it’s a nightmare, indeed.

If I was in England, I’d come to your house, knock on the door and start singing it as soon as you opened the door. lol

You’d better quickly identify yourself then, before I smash my knee right into your fucking face XD

Symbeline's avatar

Oh smash all you want, I’ll keep singing. :p
