    Hi,

    I see you're only 18, so you're used to a whole different
    "acting" style than was practiced in the original "The Omen".
    It may seem a bit too theatrical and staged, but the cast
    was made up of real good actors of "old Hollywood" and
    some fine British actors, too.
    Like I said, the little boy was freaky just by the way he
    looked, didn't have to act scary (obviously he didn't act
    all that well), he just looked eerie.
    By the technical standards of the time, it was quite
    scary. Not too many, if any, special effects, and in one
    scene it was obviously a sound stage, but all in all still
    far superior to the remake of a few years ago.

    The original Omen is miles ahead of the remake, and still holds up. Definitely scary. It's worth checking out if you get a chance. Actually, you should try to check out the entire Omen trilogy if you haven't seen it.

    A fourth Omen movie came out in the early 90's called The Awakening. I guess the demon seed was supposed to be Damien's daughter or something. It was okay, nothing to write home about.

    I was 15 and on a double date at the Drive-In. The Movie was Night Of The Living Dead. Up to that point in my life I had never seen a movie that scared me as much as this one.
    The Exorcist caused many a sleepless night for me.
    The Omen scared the crap out of me. This movie had dogs that I had never seen before or heard of. Because of this movie I have had a fear of Rottweilers my whole life. Whenever I see this dog I want to search the owners head just to see if 666 is hiding somewhere under their hair.

    ^^ I thought they were Dobermans? Anyway, I refer to them as devil dogs. I only like the mini ones.

    It's too bad that the Omen ruined the name Damien for boys. Does anyone actually name their kid that anymore? And wouldn't people be freaked out by him? I had a friend named Damon that was looking into changing his name because of this.

    No, they were Rottweilers. There is a brief mention here, under The Rottweiler in Media.

    tic tac, I also remember a movie with scary dobermans. The name is not coming to me right now.
    I've never met anyone called Damien. I guess alot of people felt the same way about that name.

    Of all of these movie, Henry: A Portrait of a Serial Killer, is probably the least well-known and its a definie must see if you like the genre. Its incredible.

    Creepy scary. There's some gore, but its not the focus. Its more along the lines of getting into the guy's mind.

    Yes, "Henry" has a gritty, real life feel to it and brings home the fact that there really are psychopaths like that out there, looking for their next victim. However, I was slightly distracted by the hotness of the actor who played Henry. The real Henry Lee Lucas (the one-eyed drifter) was so NOT hot.

    The Shining scared me. It still would actually, if I watched it now. Everything about it is so creepy.

    i loved henry. and it really creeped me out but it didn't scare me. it's more a disturbing biopic than a horror movie.

    Some of these movies don't belong on this list, IMO. 'The Ring'? Come on. What about 'Audition'? Or how about that Dario Argento mindfuck 'Suspiria'? 'Dont Look Now' with Donald Sutherland. Vincent Price did a lot of really scary stuff before it was mainstream, which is basically what this entire list is...

    ETA:

    The original 'Omen' is so much better than the re-make.. the remake is a joke. I remember watching the original with my dad when I was younger and I was terrified... that scene with the glass pane? Awesome.
