Bad Omen...


On Sunday night Stuart, Dawn and I went to see the 2006 remake of The Omen. Why did we, or indeed they, bother? It was almost word for word, scene for scene the same as the 1976 original. Maybe people were easier to frighten back then but I remember the 1976 Omen as being up there with The Exorcist as one of the scariest movies of all time. Despite the photocopy nature of this remake it failed to capture anything like the fear and dread of the original. Let's hope they don't remake Damien: Omen II or The Final Conflict.

Why when they remake films do they just remake good ones? Why don't the remake the bad ones?!

    Couldn´t agree more. By far the worst film I´ve seen this year. Maybe it would´ve been more bearable if the actors weren´t so extremely ugly. It´s even more boring than that "The Hills Have Eyes" remake. Note to myself: never go to see horror film remakes ever again.
