(Review originally written at 16 March 2004)

Unlike some other horror movies, the creators actually spend lots of time and effort on the story development.

"The Omen" is not really a scary movie. There isn't really any gore and/or monsters, it has a great and unique story instead that makes the movie an unique and original one with a nice ending.

Some of the scene's are impressive and unforgettable. The music by Jerry Goldsmith might very well be one of the best horror scores till date. All of those elements help to create a good horror atmosphere without any of the cliched horror elements.

The story is made believable by some good acting performances, especially by Gregory Peck of course who always is a pleasure to watch in a movie.

Top class classic horror movie without any flaws.
