When Katherine Thorn's (Julia Stiles) son dies shortly after birth, her husband Robert (Liev Schreiber) fears she will fall into deep depression.  A priest suggests to adopt a newborn child whose mother abandoned it, and to never mention the incident to Katherine.

Robert agrees, and the Thorns name their son Damien (Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick).  Katherine senses something is afoul early on however, especially after Damien's nanny commits suicide at the boy's birthday party.  A series of events soon follow suggesting that the child is the Antichrist.  Robert continues to defend his maligned son -- at least until startling evidence arises.

The Omen was nominated for two Teen Choice Awards.  It earned $119 million at the box office -- nearly five times its $25 million cost of production.
