MMM Commentary: The Omen (1976)
MMM presents a commentary track for one of the most horrifying films of all time. And we mean the scary horrifying, not the bad horrifying.
The Omen is one of those films that sits with you long after you have finished watching it – it’s menacing, scary, tense, gripping and just plain jump out of your seat frightening.
That is why it is the perfect way to celebrate the end of our special little Halloween run of commentaries and podcasts.
Gregory Peck is the ambassador to the United States whose wife has a stillborn child. Without her knowledge, he substitutes another baby as theirs. A few years go by, and then grisly deaths begin to happen. The child’s nanny hangs herself and a priest is speared to death in a freak accident. It turns out the child is the son of Satan and can only be killed with the seven daggers of Meggado.
Tony, Trevor David and Geoff will inform, entertain, educate and blaspheme their way through one of the cornerstones of the horror genre.
