    The Omen

    ★★★★

    In 1976 director Richard Donner introduced us to a young boy who would go on to terrify cinemagoers the world over. Damian, the son of the devil, AKA the Beast, was a platform that made famous the sinister five year old lad played by Harvey Spencer Stephens.

Jong-goo is a policeman investigating a string of murders where an infection appears to be causing villagers to become violent and kill their own families. This coincides with the arrival of a foreigner, a Japanese man (Jun Kunimura) who is reportedly seen with demonic red eyes in the woods, feasting…
