On October 15th, Own the Entirety of THE OMEN Saga in One Deluxe Blu-ray Collection!


Vault Dwellers.... I am SUPER EXCITED FOR THIS UPCOMING BOXED SET! The original THE OMEN is a Horror classic and still fantastic all these years later, and it's first sequel is arguably even better! (At the very least DAMIEN: OMEN II should be classified as one of the best sequels ever made!) Those two movies alone make this set worthwhile for yours truly - the other three flicks are just icing on the cake!

It's been decades since I've seen OMEN III: THE FINAL CONFLICT (all I remember about this one is that evil Sam Neill sodomizes a woman without her permission), THE OMEN remake didn't impress me much when I saw it thirteen years ago (I don't remember a single thing about it honestly), and I've never seen OMEN IV: THE AWAKENING. But now I can marathon the entire series and get a comprehensive look at the making of each film because this set is loaded with special features!

If you're as excited as I am about THE OMEN COLLECTION, come with me on this journey of Blu-ray discovery Vault Dwellers!

Original theatrical one-sheet for THE OMEN (1976) starring Gregory Peck.
THE OMEN (1976)

Synopsis: American diplomat Robert (Gregory Peck) adopts Damien (Harvey Stephens) when his wife, Katherine (Lee Remick), delivers a stillborn child. After Damien's first nanny hangs herself, Father Brennan (Patrick Troughton) warns Robert that Damien will kill Katherine's unborn child. Shortly thereafter, Brennan dies and Katherine miscarries when Damien pushes her off a balcony. As more people around Damien die, Robert investigates Damien's background and realizes his adopted son may be the Antichrist!
