There's only five days left now until the Antichrist appears back in our cinemas with the release of The Omen remake set for relase on the 6th June (06.06.06).
The 1976 Richard Donner original is a true classic in the horror genre, so hopes are high that this version will be more Dawn of the Dead than The Fog in terms of Hollywood horror remakes.
The pedigree is certainly there at least, with a cast list that includes Liev Schreiber, Mia Farrow, Pete Postlethwaite, David Thewlis, and (get this 'b' movie fans!) Giovanni Lombardo Radice aka John Morghen, who some of you may well know from such 'classics' as Cannibal Apocalypse, Cannibal Ferox and The House on the Edge of the Park.
To whet your appetite for the film even further, Fox have supplied us with an EXCLUSIVE clip from the film (in Windows Media format only) featuring Lieve Schreiber and Pete Postlethwaite, which you can view by clicking on either of the links below.
Fear the date – 6/6/06 – when The Omen opens in cinemas nationwide. A remake of the 1976 horror classic, the new film takes the tale of the coming of the "Antichrist" – personified as a young boy named Damien – to an even more thrilling and visceral level.
6th Jun 05 Imagine if you will, being middle aged, bloated, in a boring, thankless job and trapped in a loveless marriage. And that’s the way it’s going to continue until you’re 6 feet under. You get late night phone calls from an old friend.
23rd Mar 04 Forget the Ed Gein movie – this is where its at. Deranged is darkly hilarious but also deeply disturbing account of the nefarious activities of the same person, but is executed with much more skill than the Ed Gein movie.
