Movie Reviews

A pretty good documentary......
Elite14 | Minneapolis, MN | 01/14/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The Omen films have always been some of my favorite scary movies ever. This documentary goes into the movies themselves & the strange stories that happened during the filming of the movies. People who were making these films started to believe that they were cursed. While some just thought it was a hoax. Either way, it's interesting to hear how the films were made, what impact they had on the film industry, and how well they did at the box office. If you are a fan of the films at all, I recommend this DVD. It's not as good as the Alien Legacy disc, but it's still very interesting and is worth the cash."
The Omen Legacy is so cool.

"Hello All Omen FansIf you want to know more about the four Omen films this is a must it explains much more than the four Omen dvds, it covers from the first to the tv movie and beyond. I just hope Omen 5 will be made. From a Omen fan I highly recommend this dvd."
A dark discovery...

"I was pleasantly surprised while inspecting the special features disc on My recently-acquired Omen Collection {I-IV, special features disc, plus the 6/6/06 remake, also containing the 666 Revelations featurette with Rev. Moore}, the films which I had previously collected on VHS, but having them now on DVD is just splendid. I discovered 'The Omen Legacy' documentary included hereon, which features none other than Church of Satan Magistra Blanche Barton commenting from the Satanic perspective on the effects this series has had on culture. Most notably, when asked about the III finale {the DP}, she observes that {paraphrased} "...Well, I suppose it makes people feel better, although it seems rather contrived". Considering the herd's dualistic mentality, it seems true for this entertainment fare, although these are timelessly amusing for what they are.

The Omen Curse

In the curses and coincidences section, the legendary Omen Curse is related, recounting the strange incidents surrounding the production of these films, from a pilot who crashed his plane onto a car containing his wife and children, to two seperate planes being struck by lightning, prop malfunctions, near and fatal auto collisions which took the life of a special effects technician's girlfriend {who was decapitated}, health problems, and a constantly pervasive sensation of "evil". There were even christian nuts and weakan protestors {humorously, the latter were called "devil-worshippers" by the media!}, and the suicide of a girl who claimed influence by the movies.


Other highlights include behind-the-scenes footage from the sets, greatest moments scenes, personal recollections and experiences, innovative special effects techniques, rare art and photography, and interviews with Magistra Blanche Barton, producers Richard Donner & Mace Neufeld, screenwriter David Seltzer, actors David Warner, Lance Henriksen, Lee Grant, Lisa Harrow, and Michael Lerner.

Also included are commentries by Catholic Priest and professor of theology Dr. Felix Just, and protestant minister Rev. Doug Posey, who relate the typical christian opinion on the antichrist mythos, claiming The Devil did not want the movie made, stating the ubiquitous "the greatest lie of The Devil is that He doesn't exist..." Well hypothetically, perhaps 'The Gentleman' DID want it made, and just utilized the propaganda to make it all even more interesting...

Throughout the conversations, Omens I -IV are covered in this documentary, as the subsequent Omen 666 had not yet been made. All this wonderful content accompanied by the brooding narration of Jack Palance creates a delightfully nefarious atmosphere framing the series nicely. Highly recommended for Omen fantoms and collectors of Church of Satan media interviews."
Sorry Jack

"Even Jack Palances gritty voice can't make this documentary creepy in the least. Other reviewers are right: the package blurb states this is about strange occurances that befall the cast and crew of The Omen. What they have done is overhype each and every problem that the filmmakers had into some pseudo-paranormal hyjinx. "Mysteriously, there were 6 types of lunch meats, six of each, on six separate tables in the catering tent. A sign from Lucifer!" Only kidding, that wasnt in the movie. But its that kind of embellishment that should make you say 5 Hail Mary's and take this out of your queue."
