'The Omen'
(Julia Stiles, Liev Schreiber, Mia Farrow, David Thewlis, Pete Postlethwaite, et al / NR / 87 mins / 20th Century Fox)

Overview: A government official (Liev Schreiber) and his wife (Julia Stiles) gradually come to think that they're cute lil' tyke Damien might be the physical embodiment of Satan.

Verdict: Do you think the real-life Satan gets frustrated when movies about him kind of suck? Like, is he sitting there going, "More evil! More!" when the boring parts happen? Because this one's got some seriously dull stretches. The graphic killings almost make up for it, but when they start reciting prophesy poetry about "turning man against his brother, till man exists no more," you start wondering whether you should just give in and go to the concession for a seven-buck candy bar. Basically, 'The Omen' (2006) is a karaoke version of the Gregory Peck-Lee Remick original, which is a darn shame. Oh yeah, according to the credits, Harvey Stephens, who played little Damien in 1976's 'The Omen,' plays "Tabloid Reporter #3" here!
