Critic Reviews of "The Omen"Chicago ReaderOctober 09, 2012
Richard Donner directs more for speed than mood, but there are a few good shocks.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Richard Donner's direction is taut. Players all are strong.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
This apocalyptic movie mostly avoids physical gore to boost its relatively unoriginal storyline with suspense, some excellent acting (especially from Warner and Whitelaw), and a very deft, incident-packed script.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
A member of the Exorcist family, it is a dreadfully silly film, which is not to say that it is totally bad.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
As long as movies like The Omen are merely scaring us, they're fun in a portentous sort of way.Antagony & EcstasyJuly 25, 2015
Much of the film is terrific, unnerving stuff; but much of it is kind of loopy and much too silly to take even a little seriously.Daily Telegraph (UK)December 29, 2014
The Omen contains some of the most memorable untimely deaths in cinema history.Cinema CrazedOctober 31, 2013
Stands alone as a wonderful horror thriller.Film4October 09, 2012
Entertaining and yes, still ominous after all these years. A landmark of satanic cinema.Empire MagazineOctober 09, 2012
It was the performance of Harvey Stephens as the young Damien that invested the film with the chill of genuine credibility.PopMattersOctober 09, 2012
All references to prophecy and the Antichrist aside, The Omen achieves its horrors the old fashioned way.TV GuideOctober 09, 2012
Silly and bloody, but at times very effective.
