Conclusion: No classic but the sequel to the 1976 Anti-Christ blockbuster is actually really good fun. Its sole purpose is to devise grisly deaths for the people who discover who the young teen Scott-Taylor really is, and, in that regard, it comes up trumps with an incident with a crow on a deserted road, an ice hockey accident and especially, a wayward lift all doing the job. Plus this hokum is pretty well acted and Goldsmith is riffing enjoyably on his iconic score.
Conclusion: Of course, the first is the best, but the second is close to it. The third has some great moments (the hunt...). The good new for this Blu-ray is that the OMEN Trilogy doesn't exist everywhere and for french fans, the Trilogy has a good Blu-ray edition, with french subtitles on each movie ! The best copy is for the Richard Donner movie, of course, there was a special edition on DVD a few years ago, that's why.
Conclusion: The first and best of the the Omen film series is available seperatly on Blu Ray exclusively from Play.com. I have it and the transfer although not as good as say new films on Blu Ray is still the best the film has ever looked. I don`t have the trilogy on Blu Ray just standard DVD.
Conclusion: To last reviewer Omen not playing bloomin typical i know I have same player as you got it up graded b4 xmas wouldnt play batman begins the thing I belive tha latest firmware is 1.9 version anyhow its the lateset my omen and the others i just mentioned play fine now
Conclusion: Just got the UK boxset. None of the films will play on my Samsung BDP-1400 Blu-ray player. The menu screen loads up on all three of the discs but that is all you get. When you make a selection on any of the features on the menu screens the screen goes blank for a few seconds and then loops back to the main menu screen again.
Conclusion: Looks like Fox UK have dropped extras that the US release had. Also the US can buy the first film on its own. At least we get the isolated score track. Still annoying they can't give us the same release as the US though. Another good reason to either forget Blu Ray or find a mulit region Blu Ray player.
Conclusion: The Omen is the greatest horror film , psychological horror film of all time. The haunting score from Jerry Goldsmith is absolutly fantastic, and Richard Donner's direction is utter brilliance. The acting is terrific and the writing is beyond excellent. Even it's sequels are pretty damn good, though the acting begins to slowly get worse, however, the films themselves are good sequels, more lesser key sequels.
